What To Expect During a LASIK Consultation?

LASIK is the best-known laser vision correction produce in the United States. This innovative procedure uses the latest laser technology to alter the shape of the cornea – the clear, domed lens covering the front of the eye.

It is extremely safe, effective, and for most people, affordable.


What Options Do I Have to Control My Myopia?

Myopia is the most common refractive eye condition in the world, with the number of people it expected to continue to grow over the next decade.

Blue Light Lenses for Digital Screen Protection

The American Optometric Association recognizes that blue light from digital devices causes chaos to the circadian rhythm and eye health. The growing concerns about blue light come from the closeness of its wavelength to that of UV (ultraviolet) light. UV rays cannot enter your eyes because the anterior structures of your eyes absorb and block them. Blue light passes through your cornea and heads toward the inner light-sensitive tissue. Studies show that blue light lenses offer ample protection.


Diagnosing and Care for Macular Degeneration

MD (macular degeneration) occurs when your retina’s macula becomes damaged. It affects your central vision.

When to Start Pediatric Eye Exams

Good eyesight is important for a child’s development, overall well-being, and performance in school. A baby’s or toddler’s vision system is not fully formed. Equal input from both eyes, however, is important for the normal development of the brain’s vision centers. If a toddler’s or child’s eyes are unable to send clear images to his or her brain, it may limit his or her vision in different ways. Some of these vision limitations may be irreversible.
