The eyes are among the most important parts of the body. According to experts, of all the learning children do, about 80 percent occur through their eyes. As we grow older, we learn how to use our eyes better and to do many other things. We rely heavily on our ability to see, which means issues with our eyes can affect us significantly.
Has it been a while since you last visited your eye doctor? Perhaps you are unsure if you are wearing the correct prescription anymore, but your glasses are still fine, right? Maybe not.
Keratoconus is an eye condition where the cornea thins and bulges outwards into a cone shape. As a result, you experience distorted or blurry vision due to light rays being out of focus.
Dry eye disease is a widespread and common issue for up to 49 million Americans. This chronic condition can have a significant impact on your quality of life, causing a foreign body sensation in your eyes, pain, blurry vision, and dry or watery eyes. Untreated, it can even lead to further eye health complications.
While eye makeup is supposed to enhance the appearance of our eyes and make us appear more attractive, the reality is that many makeup products that we regularly wear can contain harmful substances that are toxic to ocular cells. The difficulty is that these chemicals don’t cause a problem right away to notify you of their toxicity.
Dry eye occurs when your eyes cannot produce enough tears to lubricate the surface of your eyes. Your eyes can dry up due to poor-quality tears or inadequate tear production. Inconsistent eye lubrication results in inflammation and damage to the surface of your eyes.
Ortho-K lenses are special contacts that temporarily reverse and reduce refractive error. They are FDA approved and treat low to moderate myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. They are convenient and cater to many types of needs and lifestyles because the lenses are worn while you sleep. While you rest, they reshape the front surface of your cornea, allowing you to have better vision during the day.
Multifocal contact lenses are typically used to improve the near vision of patients over the age of 40 and who are starting to develop presbyopia – a problem caused by the hardening and subsequent inflexibility of the natural lens of the eye. However, multifocal lenses have also been found to be extremely effective in helping to slow the progression of myopia.
Myopia is a growing problem among children in the country and around the world. When children become myopic (or nearsighted), their long-distance vision worsens as they grow. Fortunately, there are treatments that slow down myopic progression. Myopia management impedes myopia so that your child does not develop serious ocular conditions over time.
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, children of all ages were spending more screen time than ever before on cellphones, tablets, and laptops.
