Kennedy Vision Insights: From Our Family to Yours
Knowledge is an important tool to have when it comes to your and your family’s vision and eye health. Through our easy-to-read blog posts, we’re excited to share our decades of expertise and help you stay in-the-know about the various aspects of eye care!
If you wear contact lenses, you’re likely aware of their many advantages. They offer crisp vision, even at the peripherals, and give you visual freedom that glasses just can’t compete with. Despite their convenience, it’s important to understand how to properly care for your contacts to prevent discomfort, eye diseases, and even long-term eye damage.
Most people know that you need to wash your hands before handling contacts (and if you don’t — you need to start!), but there are other important, less-common tips that you also need to understand.
Dry eye disease is a common and uncomfortable eye condition that causes your eyes to feel itchy, dehydrated, and irritated, which can significantly impact your quality of life. At Kennedy Vision Health Center, we’re experienced in both diagnosing and managing dry eye disease and its uncomfortable symptoms. Dr. Chase Eder is our skilled dry eye specialist who will lead you to clear and comfortable vision using advanced screening tools and a combination of innovative treatments.
In this fast-paced era, our eyes are working more than ever due to digital screens and small print. This change has contributed to a rise in myopia, or nearsightedness, cases among both children and adults. We’re aware of this trend at Kennedy Vision Health Center and are committed to not only educating the community about myopia but also offering advanced treatments to manage and control its progression. With our specialized approach and reliable solutions, such as Ortho-K lenses and MiSight® 1 day lenses, Kennedy Vision Health Center is here for your family’s myopia management needs. Let’s dive into what myopia is, its impact, and what we’re doing to help.

- Johnny T.
“Brittany went above and beyond customer service to make sure she helped me, and saved me hundreds, when I was prepared to spend money on new frames. Was really impressed with her! Especially, as I said, she spent her own time, and work doing this, and I didn’t even know this was an option. Thank you Kennedy!”
- Ande S.
“Staff is phenomenal!!! We had late appointments and the folks helping us pick out frames were so patient, meticulous and stayed late for us, even when I made a change to what I wanted at the very end. Will never go anywhere else but Kennedy.”
