Your Eye Health

Healthy Eyes Painted in Beautiful Colors

Learning about your eye health can be complicated – and might even seem overwhelming at first. To simplify things for our patients, we present our Eye Health Library, a comprehensive library of vision-related information. We invite you to browse through our library to find information that will help you better understand how your vision works, common eye conditions, surgeries and how your vision changes as you age.

  • Digital eye strain, eye fatigue and computer vision syndrome (CVS) are conditions that result from extended exposure to digital screens.
  • A look into our website's eye condition treatment introduces some common eye conditions. Though our website does not list all conditions, these are ones that appear most frequently.
  • How the Eye Works
    The human eye is a marvel of built-in engineering, combining reflected light, lens imaging capability, multiple lighting adjustments and information processing—all in the space of your eyeball. When working properly, the human eye converts light into impulses that are conveyed to the brain and interpreted as images.
  • Different daily activities demand different forms of eye protection. In hazardous work environments like a construction zone or workshop, or participation in extreme sports—sturdy, shatter-and-impact-resistant eye wear is a must. Different coatings on your lenses, such as anti-reflective coating, might be a considerable addition to your glasses lenses when there is frequent use of digital devices. Polarized sunglasses are crucial in protecting the eyes from UV. It is also important to consider how diet affects the eyes with age - certain foods, such as those high in saturated fats/sugars or sodium , can be detrimental to your eye health by increasing the chances of developing eye diseases such as cataracts.
  • Seeing clearly is just one part of your overall eye health. It’s important to have regular eye exams whether or not you wear glasses or contacts, even if your vision is sharp. Some eye conditions can exist even if you do not experience any symptoms. 
  • Vision Surgery
    Tired of wearing glasses or contact lenses? Today, several surgical methods can correct your eyesight and, in most cases, give you the freedom of seeing well without corrective lenses.
  • If you are among the 85 million Baby Boomers in the United States and Canada (born between 1946 and 1964), you've probably noticed your eyes have changed. Most notably, presbyopia - the normal, age-related loss of near focusing ability - usually becomes a problem in our 40's, requiring new vision correction solutions. Learn about measures you can take to keep seeing clearly for years to come.
  • Just as our physical strength decreases with age, our eyes also exhibit an age-related decline in performance - particularly as we reach our 60's and beyond. Some age-related eye changes are perfectly normal, but others may signal a disease process. It's important to recognize signs and symptoms, and perhaps even more important to mitigate the effects of aging with some simple and common-sense strategies.
