What is nearsightedness?
Also called myopia, nearsightedness is a type of refractive error that makes objects appear blurry at a distance, while objects that are within close range appear clear. Squinting is a common indicator that someone may be nearsighted. Glasses and contact lenses can correct nearsightedness in children and adults; other refractive surgeries may also be an option for clear distance vision.
What are eye floaters and when should I be concerned about them?
Eye floaters can be described as tiny specs that float across your field of vision and may be noticeable while looking at a clear sky, a plain, light-colored wall, or a blank piece of paper. They are caused by changes in the thickness of the vitreous humor of the eye. Some people may experience eye floaters and eye flashes at the same time. Generally, floaters are not a cause of concern and are a typical effect of aging, but if you experience a sudden increase in floaters and flashes, you should seek medical attention.
What are the best sunglasses to help protect my eyes?
Choosing the right pair of sunglasses comes down to more than their appearance; they are an important type of eye wear that can protect the eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays. Unprotected sun exposure can damage the structures in the eye, including the lens and cornea. It can also lead to cataracts. To get the most out of your sunglasses, ensure that you are selecting ones with the following features:
UV protection: Look for sunglasses that offer 100% UV protection. You should also regularly inspect your sunglasses for scratches and chips since any damage to the coating can make the sunglasses less effective.
Size: Correctly sized sunglasses should fit comfortably and cover a large portion of the face, which allows for more protection.
How often should I schedule eye examinations?
Adults should get a complete eye exam at least every two years, or as recommended by a qualified optometrist. Patients 65 and older and those at risk for certain eye conditions may need more frequent visits for optimal optical health.
What are the symptoms of dry eye?
Dry eye can cause several disruptive symptoms, including:
- A gritty sensation in the eyes
- Eye redness and inflammation
- Feeling as if something is in your eye
- Eye discharge
- Sensitivity to light
- Change in vision
- Burning or stinging sensation
Dry eye is the result of the eyes not making an adequate amount of tears, quick evaporation of tears, or a combination of the two. Certain factors can put you at higher risk of experiencing dry eye, such as your environment and certain medical conditions. For dry eye relief, schedule your appointment at Clarity Eye Group.
How can I protect my eyes from digital strain?
Digital screens are a significant part of many people’s lives today. If you find your eyes becoming tired after staring at a phone screen, television, digital tablet, or laptop for extended amounts of time, you may be experiencing computer vision syndrome. Protect your eyes with specialized glasses that are intended for use with digital screens, take frequent eye rest breaks while using digital devices, and limit screen time whenever possible.
