That started with the construction of their newest facility in Otsego that includes a home-like setting and continues on throughout the operation of the center. We consider our kids in the decor, the instruments we use, the design and the products we carry, Schultz said. The doctors and staff at Bright Eyes have paid special attention to that childs first visit to the eye doctor. On more than one occasion they have invited in families with children who have autism for a tour to take the mystery out of that first visit.

Blurred vision? Eye doctor myths exposed – learn how to exercise your eye muscles for restoring healthy vision and eliminating prescription glasses
If you want strong legs, you need to walk and run from time to time, right? Well, if you want a strong, functioning ciliary muscle set, you need to alternate your visual focus among near objects and far objects so that these muscles are challenged to stay strong. This also increases the flexibility (range of motion) of your eye lenses (sort of like yoga for your eyes). Now here’s the real kicker in all this: Most people in modern society never view anything far away! They don’t live out in the country, in other words, so they’re not looking at something a mile away. No mountains are even visible in most cities, and peoples’ vision is focused entirely on things that are close.

Choate Eye Associates Now Uses Opt-Align Eye Care Technology
Choate Eye Associates is the only vision correction center in the entire state of Tennessee that offers this advanced technology. With the addition of Opt-Align(TM) technology, optometrists Walter Choate and Lauren Goldsmith have once again demonstrated their commitment to providing patients with the best possible care. About Opt-Align(TM) Vision Technology Opt-Align(TM) is a new step forward in the diagnosis and treatment of computer vision syndrome (CVS) and asthenopia (eyestrain). Eyestrain is most commonly caused by a fixation disparity, which occurs when the focusing muscles of the eyes are not working together with the muscles that move the eyes. Using Opt-Align(TM) technology, a vision specialist is able to accurately measure the alignment of a patient’s eyes and devise effective, fully customized treatments to address eyestrain. The Basics of CVS Related to eyestrain in a number of ways, CVS refers to a group of symptoms that can occur when looking at a computer monitor for a prolonged period of time.

Diabetes And Eyes: What Your Vision Is Trying To Tell You
(NAPS) Posted: Thursday, August 8, 2013 4:44 am | Updated: 1:33 am, Fri Aug 9, 2013. Diabetes And Eyes: What Your Vision Is Trying To Tell You By NAPS, North American Precis Syndicate Wallowa County Chieftain | 0comments (NAPSI)Diabetes is a serious disease that can affect many aspects of the bodythe heart and kidneys, blood circulation and even the eyes.1 In fact, diabetic eye disease has increased in prevalence by 89 percent between 2000 and 2010 and is a leading cause of blindness among American adults.2, 3 Despite this, vision care is often overlooked by people with diabetes as they work to manage the many other health problems the disease can cause. According to a survey by the American Optometric Association, 55 percent of people are unaware that diabetic eye disease often has no visual signs or symptoms.4 Additionally, 44 percent of Americans dont know that a person with diabetes should have a comprehensive eye exam once a year, including a retina (dilated) eye exam.4 Yet these exams are the only way to diagnose serious eye diseases associated with diabetes at its early stage.5 Regular retina eye exams are critical for early detection and treatment of these progressive eye diseases that often begin without warning. The longer a person has diabetes, the higher their risk for eye disease. Over time, diabetes may cause damage to the blood vessels in the back of the eye, known as diabetic retinopathy, which can lead to diabetic macular edema (DME). DME occurs when the damaged blood vessels leak fluid and cause swelling. Although symptoms are not always present, this swelling can cause blurred vision, double vision and patches in vision, which may appear as small black dots or lines floating across the front of the eye.
