Children's vision Month

Vision is an amazing gift! Sight allows us to interact with our surroundings whether we are at home, at work, at school or at play. Good vision is also something we can take for granted. That is why optometrists recommend yearly eye exams for children. Ensuring your children have good vision (including eye teaming, eye focusing and eye tracking) is an important part in ensuring their quality of life. Click HERE for more information about Children's Vision Month!

UV Awarenessuv awareness

Sunny days are finally here! As we all enjoy the summer months we would like to provide you with some information on sun exposure and UV. Ultraviolet, or UV is a form of radiation that is invisible to the human eye. Too much exposure to UV light can be very harmful to our eyes. Some of the potential damages include eye cancer, cataracts, and growths of the cornea called pinguecula and pterygium.

For more information on risks associated with sun exposure visit Risks Associated With Sun Exposure.

For more information on protecting children from UV damage please visit Children and Risks Associated With Sun Exposure.

The Doctors of Optometry channel on YouTube has posted four very short (about a minute long) videos on various UV related topics. Please check out these great video clips below!

PolArized vs. Non-Polarized Lenses

When a patient comes into our clinic to purchase sunglasses one of the questions we are constantly asked is .. What's the difference between polarized and non-polarized lenses?

The main difference is a polarizing filter in the lens which offers the most protection against the sun's horizontal glare. Polarized lenses block intense light reflected from flat surfaces improving visibility and clarity. The pictures below are a puddle in our parking lot. The results can be quite dramatic. Click on the images below to see the difference.

Myopia Control

Why do eyes become nearsighted? The following are known factors:

  • Genetics
  • Visual Stress (too much close work)
  • Nutrition (too many refined sugars and not enough protein).

We cannot change our genetic makeup but we can modify our behavior to reduce the amount of up close stress and improve our diet.

By holding books, ipods/iphones, lap tops and other things further away with good posture we can reduce the visual stress on our eyes. The best distance is the distance from our knuckles to our elbow from our nose (Harmon Distance).

By improving or maintaining a healthy diet of fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains and some meat (optional), we can further reduce the progression of myopia. At the same time a healthy diet will help prevent macular degeneration, cataracts, high blood pressure, diabetes and many other health issues.

Myopia can be managed with the use of specialized contact lenses (corneal molds). This is called Accelerated Orthokeratology (AOK). We have had great success in stabilizing myopia. These specialized molds are only used while sleeping. They gently reshape the front of the eye, the cornea, allowing great eyesight throughout the day without the use of contact lenses or glasses.

If you would like to learn more about myopia and/or its management please contact
Dr. Loose at 250-649-2020 or dr.loose@envisioneyehealthclinic.com
