Myopia Can Be Reversed In Children With Bifocal Contacts

True confession: I’ve been wearing glasses since I was 10 years-old. It didn’t bother me to wear glasses because I was so pleased to be able to see the chalkboard clearly.

Retail is Dead. Long Live Retail

Sadly, Toys R’ Us recently ceased operations. Sears’ post-bankruptcy strategy is to have smaller stores which concentrate on appliances. Sounds like traditional brick and mortar retail is in trouble, doesn’t it? First of all, not every brick and mortar retailer is in trouble. WalMart and Target are doing very well. Still, the trend is that […]

Keeping the Patients Happy

Some patients come to your practice because it is the one that accepts their insurance. Even so, you and your staff can’t become lax when it comes to customer service.

Petri Dish Retinas

No one wants to have compromised vision. When someone learns that he or she has glaucoma, working to keep functional vision becomes a priority.

Macular Degeneration Research Findings

Glaucoma and cataracts get all the news when it comes to visual impairment and blindness. That being said, attention needs to be paid to macular degeneration, since 11 million people in the U.S. and 200 million people worldwide have the disease. It is the leading cause of blindness in those age 65 and over. Researchers […]

How to Reduce Resistance to Care

Repeat after me: • If you are between the ages of 20 and 64, even if you don’t have any underlying health issues, you need to have an eye exam every two years. • If you are age 65 or older, you need an eye exam every year. • If you have diabetes or a […]
