5 February 2016Did you know? Many Americans spend over six hours each day staring at some type of computer screen, whether a tablet, laptop or smartphone. You may be among the nearly 70% of adults who suffer from digital eye strain. How can you tell if you’re putting too much strain on your eyes? If your eyes are watering, burning, or you catch yourself rubbing a sore neck, temples or shoulders, these are signs you are overworking your eyes. Consider decreasing screen time. New data suggests that looking at small print on mobile devices may stimulate the gene for nearsightedness.
5 February 2016Our specialties! Refractive surgery consultation – many forms of refractive surgery are available to treat near-sightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. We provide full examinations and pre-operative care for laser vision surgery, as well as post-operative follow-up care after surgery.
5 February 2016Not all eye drops are created equal. Many patients who experience dry eye symptoms use over-the-counter eye drops, but most have a preservative that can actually cause inflammation and make your eyes even drier. And, many over the counter drops are not compatible with contact lenses. If you have dry eyes, see one of our doctors for a professional evaluation to determine which eye drops are right for you.
5 February 2016Don't take your eye health for granted! Protect your eyesight by eating for good vision, which starts with the food on your plate. Studies have shown that nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, lutein, zinc, and vitamins C and E may help ward off age-related vision problems such as macular degeneration and cataracts. Include green leafy veggies, salmon, tuna, and other fish, eggs, nuts and healthy fats, oranges and other fresh fruits in your diet.
Eating a well-balanced diet also helps you maintain a healthy weight, which makes you less likely to get obesity-related diseases such as type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in adults.
