What Are the Most Common Eye Problems?

Eye problems have become common. Sometimes they are minor and disappear on their own or through simple home treatment. Other times, they may require a specialist's attention.

LASIK & Refractive Surgery Co-Management

LASIK – or Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis – is the most common elective surgery in the world, with millions of procedures having been performed worldwide in the last decade alone. LASIK laser eye surgery is used to correct refractive eye errors. These are problems with your vision that occur as a result of the way that light is refracted when it enters the eye. For example, if the light falls short of the retina (landing in front of it rather than on it), patients are said to be short-sighted. This is where they can see objects nearby clearly, but those that are further away appear blurred. Fortunately, LASIK can help.

When Should My Child Start Pediatric Eye Exams?

Vision problems are very common among children. Researches report that up to 25 percent of school-going kids have eyesight problems. Most vision problems can affect learning. Most school activities are highly dependent on visual skills. 

What Happens During LASIK Eye Surgery?

LASIK eye surgery is a common laser refractive surgery that helps to correct vision problems. LASIK is an alternative to glasses or contacts. During the surgery, a special laser is used to change the cornea’s shape to improve vision. The cornea is the dome-shaped part of the eye. 

Benefits of Daily Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are a convenient option for vision correction. Most contact lenses are soft, and they have different schedules for wear and replacement. As the need for convenience continues to grow, people are turning to disposable contact lenses. These are single-use contact lenses that are discarded at the end of the day. 

Do Blue Light Blocking Glasses Actually Work?

Also known as blue-ray light, blue light is a form of specific short-wavelength light. It is commonly emitted from various appliances that have screens. These include mobile devices, flat-screen TVs, and computer screens, among others.

Preventing and Treating Eye Allergies

Eye allergies occur when a foreign substance causes inflammation to your conjunctiva. The foreign substances or allergens can come from anywhere, whether indoors or outdoors. The inflammation occurs when blood vessels in your eyes bulge, causing them to become red and itchy. Your eyes may also start to tear. If you are suffering from eye allergies, there is a high chance that your kids may have it too.

Common Vision Issues in Kids and Treating Them

Babies and younger kids learn more about the world through good vision than from all their other senses combined. Healthy eyes and vision are vital to your child’s physical, social, and educational development.

Every eye is different. Standard contact lenses can help resolve common cases of refractive errors. But, if you have other vision problems, specialty contact lenses are an excellent solution.
