We all have busy lives, so it can be easy to forget about things like scheduling regular eye exams.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is one of the leading causes of vision loss for people over the age of 50.
We all love our glasses and contact lenses for letting us enjoy the details of the world around us and perform our daily tasks.
It wasn’t so long ago that the idea of a smart contact lens seemed like the stuff of science fiction, but it’s pretty close to becoming science fact.
Let’s face it: glasses and contact lenses are pretty amazing.
You know the feeling - you blink repeatedly expecting relief for your eyes, but all you get is sandpaper. You buy eye drops expecting to be soothed, but they only bring relief for a few seconds. Dry eyes are one of the most common eye conditions today, and one of the hardest to ignore.
If you’ve ever struggled to read a road sign from a distance or a clock from across the room, you may be facing the same condition as 40% of Americans. Myopia, or nearsightedness, is your eye’s lack of ability to focus on things more than a few feet away.
Do you remember in old cartoons when a character would see a delicious plate of food and his eyes would comically bulge out like footballs?
Nearly everyone over the age of 65 will experience a reduced elasticity of the lenses of their eyes — a condition called presbyopia.
Compared to all the different frame styles and lens shapes of glasses, it might seem like contact lenses are much simpler.
