Your Eye Health

Learning about your eye health can be complicated – and might even seem overwhelming at first. To simplify things for our patients, we've created 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. 

  • While certainly not a complete eye care dictionary, the EyeGlass Guide Glossary covers many of the common eye care conditions, terms and technology you’ll commonly discuss with your eye care professional.
  • Healthy Sight isn’t a slogan; it’s a way of life that enhances your everyday vision while preserving the well being of your eyes. It means getting regular checkups.
  • 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.
  • If you work in a hazardous environment like a construction zone or workshop, or participate in ball sports or extreme sports—sturdy, shatter-and-impact-resistant eyewear is a must. This is particularly important when considering eye protection for both children and adults.
  • 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, and even if your vision is sharp. The articles below explain what problems can be detected with an eye exam, what’s involved in a comprehensive exam, and special considerations for kids and contact lenses.
  • Use these articles to proactively care for your child's eyes, identify potential trouble, and maximize the opportunity for crisp, convenient and healthy vision.
  • 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.
  • Read more about some of the most common eye diseases including cataracts, diabetes, glaucoma and macular degeneration.
  • Eye problems can range from mild to severe; some are chronic, while others may resolve on their own, never to appear again. The articles below will give you a basic understanding of some of these problems and their implications. The cardinal rule is if your eyes don't look good, feel good or see well, you should visit your doctor.
  • 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.

DON'T LET YOUR FSA/HSA BENEFITS GO TO WASTE

Use It Or Lose It Slideshow By EyeCarePro

1. Get an eye exam

As December 31 nears, you may be scrambling to make all those healthcare appointments you’ve been meaning to schedule all year. Your FSA covers a comprehensive eye exam so schedule yours today.

2. Treat yourself to premium lenses fit for your lifestyle

Once you’ve renewed your prescription, consider spending some of your surplus dollars to give your eyewear an upgrade. Have you been longing to try a better quality lens? Now’s the time. If you’re tired of toting your readers from room to room, maybe it’s time for a progressive lens such as Varilux®. Or maybe you’d like glasses that help you see life in the best light; Transitions® lenses automatically adjust from clear indoors to dark outdoors. You can even combine Varilux and Transitions and really treat yourself.Do you spend hours in front of your phone or computer? You could benefit from a lens that helps alleviate digital eye strain like Eyezen™.

3. Throw in some shades – even in winter

The days may be shorter, but the sun’s UV rays can still harm your eyes, even in winter. If prescription sunglasses are on your holiday wish list, go ahead and treat yourself to protect yourself! Your FSA covers prescription sunglasses like Xperio UV® polarized sun lenses, which virtually eliminates glare, are scratch-resistant and provide UV protection on the front and backside of the lens.
