June is #CataractAwarenessMonth! Cataracts may develop slowly over many years or they may form rapidly in a matter of months. They develop without pain or redness. A full eye exam with an optometrist can determine if you have cataracts. ~ CAO
Myopia is already highly prevalent in many countries. It is estimated to affect 50% of the worlds’ population by 2050.
May is Healthy Vision Month! Taking care of your eyes is a priority just like eating healthy and physical activity. To keep your eyes healthy, get a comprehensive dilated eye exam where an eye care professional will use drops to widen the pupils to check for common vision problems and eye diseases. It’s the best way to find out if you need glasses or contacts, or are in the early stages of any eye-related diseases. Book your next eye exam today!
Myopia or nearsightedness is the most common reason for a prescription among children and young adults. Our lifestyles are showing an increase in this as children take part in more near tasks like using digital devices, studying and reading. Ways we can help control your child’s myopia would be to spend more time outdoors, give their eyes a break from time to time especially when doing their schooling and to make sure they have annual eye exams. HOYA has introduced lenses for glasses called MiyoSmart lenses and they have proven to decrease the progression of myopia by 60% compared to traditional lens options. If you have questions regarding your child’s sight or the MiyoSmart lenses, please reach out to our doctors and opticians who are more than than happy to help.
Don’t let an eye injury take you out of the game! Proper eye protection such as helmets, face masks and goggles can save your vision on and off the playing field. You only have 1 set of eyes; play safe! #SportsEyeSafetyMonth
