EYEcenter Optometric Focus Areas and Current Promotions
In a nutshell, vision therapy is focusing on the visual skills that are absolutely crucial for learning. Whether distance learning or in a classroom, these skills affect students' ability to comprehend and retain information and are not measured by how well they see at 20 feet (20/20). Vision therapy can help. Remote sessions are available! Learn more about Vision Therapy at EYECenter Optometric.
Three out of five (60%) of those who have increased their screen time are concerned about the impact that it will have on their eyes. Among those with increased screen time, nearly half (45%) reported their eyes feel dry as a result of it. Digital devices and dry eye often go together because looking at screens reduces blink rates--which reduces your tear production. Click for more information from our specialty dry eye clinic.
What makes EYEcenter Optometric Unique?
Our Patients Say it Best
Dry eye syndrome (DES) is a chronic condition that develops when your eyes do not produce and maintain enough tears to keep the eye’s surface lubricated resulting in multiple symptoms that range from person to person. This can be due to a reduction in tear production or increased tear evaporation from a lack of lipid in the tears that stem from oil glands in the eyelids. The effects can range from minor dryness and discomfort to pain, blurred vision and frequent infections.
Dry eyes can occur naturally as a result of aging or hormonal changes, typically in women who are pregnant, taking oral contraceptives or going through menopause. In fact, women over 50 have a 50% greater risk of dry eye disease than men do of the same age. It can also result from taking certain medications that reduce tear production such as antihistamines, blood pressure medications and antidepressants.
There are many treatment options for dry eyes which are highly dependent upon the cause and severity of the condition. If over-the-counter drops don’t alleviate your symptoms, your doctor might prescribe prescription drops that actually stimulate tear production or steroids for short-term relief. Dry eye disease won't have a permanent effect on your vision, but there is no reason to endure dry, itchy and uncomfortable eyes, especially since there are so many treatment options to increase moisture and comfort.
