Given the growing concern surrounding COVID-19, we have decided to temporarily close the office starting Monday, March 23rd. This is a challenging tie for all of us and we are making every effort to protect our patients and staff from unnecessary risk. In order to continue to serve your needs to the best of our ability, please see the following measures:
If you notice some dryness and crust in your eyes in the morning, you’re not alone. This is something that everyone experiences. While you’re asleep, the eyes continue to make mucus and tears. Then, considering you don’t blink while asleep, that excess matter, which consists of mucus, dead cells, and oil, forms in the corner of the eyes.
Contact lenses are a great alternative to glasses, with many patients choosing to wear contacts fully instead, or to alternate between the two solutions to improve their vision. They eliminate many of the issues experienced by glasses wearers, such as the inability to wear them during sport, problems remembering to take them with them, and maintenance costs when they invariably get dropped or sat on! Whether you usually wear prescription eyewear, or you have just found out that you need visual support for the first time, if you are considering wearing contact lenses, you’ll need to attend a contact lens exam. If this is your first time, here’s what you need to know about what to expect.
In the fall, humidity can go away. The days are shorter, and the leaves take on vibrant orange and red colors. When temperatures begin to drop, the Fall is in full swing. Unfortunately, this setting exposes your eyes to dry air, increased allergens, and UV light that may cause eye problems.
Dry eye disease is an uncomfortable, persistent problem for many people. If you are looking for long-lasting relief from dry eyes, read on to learn more about a new revolutionary treatment known as LipiFlow.
Sunglasses that are tested and are proven to be effective at blocking out 95-100% UV light are the best tool you have to protect your eyes from the harmful effects of the sun. By wearing your sunglasses when you head outside, you can dramatically reduce your risk of developing problems such as corneal sunburn, eye growths and cataracts.
Routine eye exams are recommended for all patients irrespective of their age, including your children. Many people think that taking your child to see your eye doctor is only necessary when you are concerned about their vision and require advice and treatment. However, regular eye exams are just as important as a preventative measure. Your eye doctor will monitor the health and condition of your child’s eyes as well as their vision, and this will enable them to spot any problems that could be developing early on – ensuring treatment is prompt and effective. However, this isn’t the only reason why you should take your child for regular visits. Here are some of the other key benefits of pediatric eye exams.
