Value of Routine Pediatric Eye Exams

February 17, 2021

Children require routine assessments from the moment they are born. This assessment is done monthly during their early days to track their growth progress. As they grow older, these exams become advanced. Routine eye exams are important for children. A good vision is vital for the growth and development of children. Early eye exams for children help to detect vision problems in good time. Children’s vision changes rapidly because they are at a rapid growth age. Here are reasons routine eye exams for children are very important.


Diagnosing and Care for Macular Degeneration

January 31, 2021

If you’ve noticed that your central vision is changing, it could be that you have developed macular generation. Have your eyes examined by an ophthalmologist or optometrist to be sure and to start treatment. Early intervention delays some symptoms or reduces their severity.


Atropine Eye Drops for Myopia Management

January 30, 2021

Myopia or nearsightedness is a refractive error due to changes in the structure of your eye. It develops when your cornea is too curved or your eyeball is too long, causing light that enters into your eye not to focus correctly. Instead of focusing directly on the retina, light entering your eyes focuses in front of it. This makes distant objects appear blurry. Sadly, myopia is an irreversible, progressive condition.


Managing and Treating Glaucoma

January 18, 2021

In most cases, glaucoma develops slowly and over a period of years, although there is a specific type of glaucoma that appears suddenly. Whichever type you are diagnosed with, prompt treatment is essential if you are to avoid permanent vision loss. Here’s what you need to know about some of the treatments that may be recommended to you to help manage and treat your glaucoma.


Treating Keratoconus with Scleral Lenses

December 31, 2020

Have you been experiencing eye redness, swelling, and light sensitivity? Is your vision slightly blurred and distorted? If so, you may be experiencing the early onset of keratoconus. This is a progressive eye condition that occurs when your cornea thins out, weakens, and bulges like a cone. As you know, the cornea acts as the outermost lens of your eye. The change in corneal shape causes the light rays entering your eye to become out of focus. This makes everyday tasks, such as reading and driving, difficult.


Candidates for Orthokeratology

December 9, 2020

Orthokeratology, also known as ortho-k, is a revolutionary new method of treating progressive refractive eye conditions and preventing them from getting gradually more severe. This treatment is based upon the use of special gas-permeable contact lenses that work by reshaping the cornea, which is the front surface covering the front of the eye. This changes the way that light is refracted by the cornea, ensuring it is focused more accurately onto the retina rather than in front of behind it. This enables our brains to interpret a clear, concise image rather than one which is blurred and out of focus


Importance of Routine Eye Exams

Here are some of the main reasons why routine eye exams are so important.


Benefits of Orthokeratology

November 26, 2020

You wear the ortho-k lenses at night and take them out in the morning. The eyes retain the new shape throughout the day, and you enjoy excellent vision. Come evening, you must wear the lenses again, in preparation for the next day.


Digital Screen Protection: Blue Light Lenses

November 19, 2020

As the pandemic persists, more people are resorting to home-based online work or study. This means spending more time in front of your computer and other digital gadgets. The American Optometric Association recognizes the increasing number of digital eye strain cases. Digital eye strain is the optical discomfort you get from working on your devices for at least two hours. Blue light causes it. To reduce the effects of blue light, experts recommend using blue light lenses. If you want to understand what blue light lenses are, here’s what you should know.


Candidates for Myopia Management

October 7, 2020

Myopia is one of the leading reasons for people to wear prescription glasses or contact lenses, which can successfully be used to alter the angle of refraction so that the light reaches the retina. So, if treatment is available, why is myopia management important?
