Limit Screen Time

Are you or your kids always on your devices? Myopia is on the rise! Myopia is more commonly known as nearsightedness and increases with the more you use your devices. Don’t let it overcome you or your child. A great way to combat the onset of myopia is to go outside and give your device a break. Your eyes need time away from devices (phones, tablets, computers, televisions) to stay healthy. Our exams include a free screening of the risk factors that contribute to myopia.

ADHD and Screen Time

Screen use is an epidemic causing a rise in nearsightedness in both children and adults. Patients with ADHD have a harder time managing the time spent on devices which in turn leads to visual symptoms corrected only by glasses. Outdoor activity can reduce the chances of developing eye problems. Take a look at the flyer below for more tips to help reduce the use of electronic devices.

Slit Lamp Shinanigans

There has been this annoying piece of lint stuck inside one of the slit lamp oculars for the last few weeks. No one knows how it got there, and the only way to remove it was to pull out the eyepiece and clean it. What started out as simple 2 minute project turned into a half day procedure. Finally, after trying many different tactics–fingers, screw drivers, even hair dryers–we got the slit lamp working and we open for business. Happy Wednesday everyone!
