Some fun Thursday Trivia for you: for our patients that are difficult to assess during a vision exam, we use a device called a trial frame to obtain a more accurate prescription! Trial frames with loose lenses can help to assess patients with low vision, high eye glass prescriptions, or unusual head positions!

The Center for Vision Health would like to wish a very special birthday to Helen Keller, an icon in the deafblind community and an inspiration to us all! To commemorate her birthday today, we wanted to share a few fun facts with you!

Helen Keller was born on June 27th, 1880, which means that we will be celebrating her 141st birthday! She lived an extraordinary life, having accomplished a wealth of achievements while overcoming numerous hardships. In 1904, Keller was the first deafblind individual in America to earn a university degree, when she graduated from Harvard University’s Radcliffe College with a Bachelor of Arts! In 1915, she co-founded the American Foundation for the Overseas Blind, in order to support War World I Veterans who had been blinded in combat. With this foundation, she visited 35 countries over the course of 11 years to advocate for those who were affected by blindness and vision impairment. Keller was also a political advocate, as she co-founded the American Civil Liberties Union in 1920, and campaigned to expand the rights of women and the working class. She even won an Academy Award for her work in the documentary "Helen Keller in Her Story", a biographical film about her life and achievements!
The Center for Vision Health is dedicated to providing quality care to those with low vision needs, and our mission has been greatly inspired by Helen Keller’s work. If you would like to learn more about her extraordinary life, feel free to visit the Helen Keller International website at hki.org. Happy birthday Ms. Keller!

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart.”
- Helen Keller

Today our very own Dr. Stephanie Fleming is celebrating the release of Barbie’s Helen Keller collectible doll! In her time, Helen Keller was a courageous educator, and a renowned advocate for the blind, deaf, and deaf-blind. As a part of Barbie’s “Inspiring Women” series, this collectible Barbie was designed in collaboration with the National Federation of the Blind to help spread Helen Keller’s legacy and inspire a new generation!

Blue Light and Digital Eye Strain 03/21/2021

Blue Light and Digital Eye Strain

Did you know that March is Workplace Eye Wellness Month? According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, eye strain symptoms include dry eyes, blurry vision, tearing or watery eyes, and headache. The cause of digital eye strain is that people blink less when they stare at digital devices. To combat this issue, we recommend following the 20-20-20 rule, which suggests that every 20 minutes, you should look at something 20 feet away from you for 20 seconds!
