Digital Screen Protection: Blue Light Lenses

Do you find your eyes dry, sore, and tired after a long day working on your computer, attending your online classes, or having fun with a video game session? If so, you may have an ocular discomfort known as digital eye strain. This condition consists of a range of visual symptoms that, according to The Vision Council, about 60 percent of Americans experience.

Importance of a Routine Eye Exam

The National Eye Institute always stresses the importance of routine eye exams in children and adults. Getting your eyes checked regularly by a professional eye care provider (ECP) is necessary for your overall health. With a good eye and vision health, you and your family can have a good quality of life. If you want to take the road to better optical health, here’s what you should know about the importance of routine eye exams.

Candidates for Ortho K

Prescription glasses or contact lenses can ensure that patients with myopia enjoy clear vision. Nevertheless, slowing its progression is recommended since patients with high myopia have been shown to be more likely to experience more severe vision problems in the future, some of which can have permanent consequences for your vision. These include glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and even retinal detachment. Orthokeratology, or ortho k for short, is the name given to a very popular and innovative myopia management condition.

Benefits of Scleral Lenses

Every patient is different, and this means that if you decide you would like to wear contact lenses, you will first need to attend an appointment to assess your eyes and determine which type of contacts will be most suited to your needs. Some patients will be recommended to wear scleral lenses.
