First Aid for Eye Injuries: What You Need to Know

Eye injuries can occur at any time and in various situations, ranging from minor irritations to severe trauma that may lead to permanent vision loss. Due to the delicate nature of the eye and its crucial role in our daily lives, it is essential to understand how to recognize and treat eye injuries promptly.

Managing Dry Eyes with Contact Lenses: Effective Strategies and Products

Dry eyes can be a frustrating and uncomfortable condition, especially for those who wear contact lenses regularly. The feeling of dry, itchy, and irritated eyes can be unbearable at times, making it difficult to focus on daily tasks and activities.

Can Presbyopia Be Prevented?

Aging comes with many vision changes. For example, most people find they must hold a cereal box or book at arm’s length to be able to read. Such signs could mean you have presbyopia or age-related farsightedness.

What to Do During an Eye Emergency

Approximately 2,000 workers in the United States sustain job-related eye injuries every day. The WebMD also reports that every year, 50,000 Americans lose part or all of their vision permanently because of eye injury. Statistics show that around 4 percent of eye injuries happen at home, while 15 percent happen in the workplace.

At What Age Should My Child Start Myopia Control?

Myopia control can be a great part of your child’s eye care. Myopia is an eye condition that makes it hard for people to focus on objects that are far. Your child’s eye doctor may call it shortsightedness or nearsightedness. Myopia control can protect your child’s eye health. It reduces your child’s chances of developing severe eye problems later in life.

Contact Lenses: Choosing Between Daily or Monthly

Has your eye doctor informed you that you need corrective lenses to fix your vision? Or maybe you have been wearing glasses for a while and want to switch to contacts. There are good reasons why many people choose to wear contact lenses. 

Can Astigmatism Be Cured?

Have you heard of astigmatism? This common condition occurs when the eye isn’t perfectly rounded like a soccer ball, but instead is uneven and shaped more like a football. It’s not known exactly why this happens, but genetics and prior eye damage are thought to be contributing factors. The trouble with astigmatism is that it alters the way that light passes through the eyes, making it a refractive eye error just like near or farsightedness. 

Importance of Regular Eye Exams

Do you remember the last time you had your eyes examined? Most people do not think of having their eyes checked if everything seems alright with their vision. They only think about visiting an eye doctor when they are worried about the health of their eyes.

How to Tell the Difference Between Dry Eyes, Eye Allergies and Eye Infections

Eye conditions are very common and there are a number of different types which can affect us, often at any point of our lifetime. Many are fairly minor and will resolve themselves without intervention. However, others are chronic or serious and need an eye doctor to diagnose them and recommend the most effective treatment to preserve your eyesight and your quality of life.
