Your Eye Health

Learning about your eye health can be complicated – and might even seem overwhelming at first. To simplify things for our patients, we’ve created our Eye Health Library, a comprehensive library of vision-related information. We invite you to browse through our library to find information that will help you better understand how your vision works, common eye conditions, surgeries and how your vision changes as you age.

  • While certainly not a complete eye care dictionary, the EyeGlass Guide Glossary covers many of the common eye care conditions, terms and technology you’ll commonly discuss with your eye care professional.

  • The human eye is a marvel of built-in engineering, combining reflected light, lens imaging capability, multiple lighting adjustments and information processing—all in the space of your eyeball. When working properly, the human eye converts light into impulses that are conveyed to the brain and interpreted as images.
  • If you work in a hazardous environment like a construction zone or workshop, or participate in ball sports or extreme sports—sturdy, shatter-and-impact-resistant eyewear is a must. This is particularly important when considering eye protection for both children and adults.
  • Seeing clearly is just one part of your overall eye health. It’s important to have regular eye exams whether or not you wear glasses or contacts, and even if your vision is sharp. The articles below explain what problems can be spotted with an eye exam, what’s involved in a comprehensive exam, and special considerations for kids and contacts.
  • Digital eye strain, eye fatigue and computer vision syndrome (CVS) are conditions that result from extended exposure to digital screens.
  • Use these articles to proactively care for your child's eyes, spot potential trouble, and maximize the opportunity for crisp, convenient and healthy vision.
  • Tired of wearing glasses or contact lenses? Today, several surgical methods can correct your eyesight and, in most cases, give you the freedom of seeing well without corrective lenses.
  • Read more about some of the most common eye diseases including cataracts, diabetes, glaucoma and macular degeneration.
  • Eye problems can range from mild to severe; some are chronic, while others may resolve on their own, never to appear again. The articles below will give you a basic understanding of some of these problems and their implications. The cardinal rule is if your eyes don't look good, feel good or see well, you should visit your doctor.
  • If you are among the 85 million Baby Boomers in the United States and Canada (born between 1946 and 1964), you've probably noticed your eyes have changed. Most notably, presbyopia - the normal, age-related loss of near focusing ability - usually becomes a problem in our 40's, requiring new vision correction solutions. Learn about measures you can take to keep seeing clearly for years to come.
  • Just as our physical strength decreases with age, our eyes also exhibit an age-related decline in performance - particularly as we reach our 60's and beyond. Some age-related eye changes are perfectly normal, but others may signal a disease process. It's important to recognize signs and symptoms, and perhaps even more important to mitigate the effects of aging with some simple and common-sense strategies.

NOTICE TO OUR PATIENTS

In response to the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we understand that your health is your main concern. To ensure safe visits to our office for our patients as well as a safe work environment for our staff, we have implemented heightened cleaning regimens.

We ask that:

If you have an appointment scheduled and have any of the symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, sore throat, cough, sneezing, difficulty breathing, and/or pneumonia in both lungs), or you have been in contact with anyone with those symptoms, please call us to reschedule.

When visiting our office, please help keep the environment as safe as possible for our other patients as we do have many elderly patients who are at increased risk should they contract the COVID-19 virus. You may do this by keeping your distance, washing/sanitizing your hands, and coughing/sneezing into your elbow.

We are committed to doing our part to stop the spread of this virus.

Thank you for your cooperation.
