September is Healthy Aging Month, a time to focus on the many ways we can stay healthy as we age. This year, let’s make sure to include our eyes in that conversation. Getting regular comprehensive eye exams is critical for keeping our vision sharp well into old age.

What to know about Hyperopia

The two most common types of vision correction are nearsightedness and farsightedness.

Diabetes: More Than a Numbers Game

Imagine you’ve been diagnosed with diabetes. It’s scary and a lot of information is coming at you all at once. It seems like it is all about watching those numbers.

However, there is more to it than just tracking the numbers.

‘Tis the Season for Eye Allergies

Ah! Here it is. Cooler weather, friends around a fire pit, leaves changing, the sounds of geese migrating, and eye allergies. Anybody else have this problem? Instead of enjoying the beautiful weather, you are cooped up inside trying to avoid all the things that trigger those allergies.


Back to School: Vision Basics
