Happy Friday! Here's some things to keep in mind to keep your eyes healthy.
Happy International Woman's Day!
A cataract is a clouding of the internal lens in the eye. The cloud blocks light that normally passes through the lens, which can make an image appear blurry or unfocused.
If you're concerned about cataracts and your vision, schedule an appointment with us.
Make leafy vegetables a staple in your diet. Food rich in Omega-3 such as fish, nuts, seeds, and plant oils are also good for your vision!
This month is Save Your Vision Month and serves as a reminder to take care of your vision. As life becomes more digital, the glare from screens, blue light, and more can cause strain to our eyes.
Contact us to schedule an eye exam!
Your eyes allow you to interact with the world around you every day and are a vital part of your daily life. By taking care of your eyes, you are ensuring you will see the best for years to come. Here are five reasons why routine eye exams are so important:
1. Eye exams help children succeed in school.
2. Myopia is becoming more common.
3. Vision screenings should never substitute a yearly comprehensive eye exam.
4. Glaucoma does not present symptoms in the early stages.
5. Annual eye exams can help detect other health issues.
Did you know?
Eyebrows prevent sweat from reaching your eyes, while eyelashes serve to keep dirt out of them. Eyelashes are also continuously shed, lasting approximately five months each and adding up to over 98 feet of shed hair per eye over a person's lifetime.
Oxytocin and dopamine - the "love hormones" - have an effect on pupil size. Your brain gets a boost of these chemicals when you're attracted to someone. This surge in hormones appears to make your pupils dilate.
February is Low Vision Awareness Month -
Low vision is defined as a visual impairment that is not correctable through surgery, medicine, eye glasses, or contact lenses.
You are truly one of a kind!
Happy Friday! Today is National Carrot Cake Day! Treat yourself to some carrot cake.
Eating carrots can help improve your vision since they contain lots of beta-carotene. The liver converts this into Vitamin A, which then gets converted to rhodopsin in the retina.... this gives you better night vision!
Your eyes are a very important organ, so it's important that you take good care of them.
Schedule your annual eye examination, don't strain your eyes with excessive use on digital devices, treat yourself with a pair of new frames, protect your eyes from UV rays with sunglasses, or ask if you are eligible for contact lenses for even better vision!
Vision benefits come from drinking green tea!
Dating back to 1500 B.C., the ancient Egyptians were already finding ways to treat eyes.
Complexity second only to the brain...
A myriad of different colors! 🌈
Eye Fun Fact!
Be careful when applying make up, especially around the eyes.
Fun Fact Friday! 🐸🐍🌿🍏
Benjamin Franklin was not only one of the founding fathers of the USA, a writer, publisher, political man, and naturalist he was also an inventor and is responsible for the invention of bifocal lenses. He got tired of constantly switching glasses to see near and then far, so he created lenses that were half concave, half convex.
Did you know more than 3.4 million people in the U.S. age 40 and up meet the definition of "legal blindness" or have corrected vision?
The good news is that it's never too late to start taking care of your eye health. Regular eye health appointments and exams can lead to early diagnosis.
Do you suffer from dry eyes? Central heating can make it feel worse, here's some tips to consider.
Snow and ice are reflective, so the sun's rays can reach your eyes from below as well as above. Don't forget to wear sunglasses on sunny winter days!
Happy New Year!!!
New year, new benefits! Want to start the new year off with new eyeglasses or sunglasses? Or want to come in for your annual eye exam? Let us know!
The year is coming to an end... don't forget about your vision insurance!
During the winter months we love to stay warm in our houses and keep ourselves occupied with digital devices. Staring at these screens for long periods of time can cause headaches and tired eyes.
Take regular breaks away from your screen by looking at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds every 20 minutes.
Wishing all our patients a very Merry Christmas! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend full of joy, laughter, and love! 🎄💗
Doing any traveling this holiday season? Here's some things to keep in mind...
Winter will officially be here this week. Want to upgrade your look and eyewear for the new season? Come by and use your vision benefits before they expire this year! 👓❄
Eye Fact Friday!
20/20 vision is normal vision acuity (the clarity or sharpness of vision) measured at a distance of 20 feet.
If you have 20/20 vision, you can see clearly at 20 feet what should normally be seen at a distance. If you have 20/100 vision, you must be as close as 20 feet to see what a person with normal vision can see at 100 feet.
Always wash your hands before putting them close to your eyes, especially if you're putting in or taking out contact lenses.
Eye Fact Friday!
If you experience dry eyes, pay attention to the situations that are most likely to cause your symptoms. Try to avoid those situations in order to prevent your dry eye symptoms. Here's some tips.
Thinking about a second pair of eyewear? Polarized sunglasses are a great option. Here's why!
December 31st is the last day to use your vision benefits for most insurance plans. Don't forget to schedule an eye exam if you haven't already, or use your insurance towards eyewear and contacts!
Like the rest of your body, your eyes need water to be healthy. Water helps keep your eyes moist and produces healthy tears. Lack of tear production is a sign of dry eye syndrome. Drinking enough water is a simple way to resolve your dry eyes. It is recommended to drink 8 to 10 glasses of water every day.
