Choosing Eyeglasses

Image 01

When choosing eyeglasses, keep in mind that the frame should enhance the shape and features of your face. Before trying on a pair of eyeglasses, determine the overall shape of your face. The easiest way to find your face shape is to trace the outline of your face using a straight-on photo. After tracing, study the outline and determine the basic shape: is it oval, round, oblong, square, diamond or triangle?

Low Vision

Low vision should not be confused with blindness. People with low vision have some useful vision which can often be improved with low vision aids. Visual impairment may be mild or severe. Low vision usually results in reduced central or reading vision, but may also result from decreased side (peripheral) vision, a loss of color vision, or an inability to properly adjust to light, contrast or glare.

If you spend a significant amount of time on a computer each day, you might experience symptoms of computer vision syndrome (CVS). Symptoms appear because the eyes and brain react differently to words on a computer screen than they do to printed text. Visual symptoms related to computer use can be caused by visual disorders, poor workplace conditions and individual work habits.

UV Eye Safety

We protect our skin with sunscreen, but what about our eyes? Most of us are aware of the dangerous effects ultraviolet (UV) rays have on our skin, but few of us realize the danger imposed on our eyes. UV radiation, whether from natural sunlight or artificial UV rays, can damage the eye's surface tissues as well as the cornea and lens. UV radiation can burn the front surface of the eye, much like a sunburn on the skin.

Preparing Your Child for an Eye Exam

The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends that a child have his or her first eye examination by six months of age. However, most parents wait until around the fourth birthday to have their child's eyes examined professionally. Parents commonly believe that vision screenings performed in preschools and public schools are comprehensive eye exams, when in reality they are simply vision "checks." Although vision screenings are important, they in no way replace a comprehensive eye exam.

Newborn Baby Eye Care

The tiny, delicate eyes of a newborn baby need proper care because it is important to keep them clean and healthy. Using a soft washcloth or a cotton ball and plain water, you can carefully cleanse your baby’s eyes. Dampen a cloth or cotton ball with a little bit of warm water. With the baby's eyes closed, gently wipe the eyes from the inside to the outside corners. Use a different part of the cloth or a new cotton ball for each eye. Some babies are born with blocked tear ducts.
