During this unpredictable time, please be aware of the following-

According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology:

•Coronavirus can be spread through the eyes•

• Experts say guarding your eyes — as well as your hands and mouth — can slow the spread of coronavirus.

Here are 5 ways you can help yourself and others:

1) If you wear contact lenses, switch to glasses for a while.
- Contact lens wearers touch their eyes more than the average person. By wearing glasses, one can decrease the risk of infection as well as irritation.

2) Wearing glasses may add a layer of protection.
- Glasses or sunglasses may provide an additional protective layer in shielding your eyes from infected respiratory droplets (although it does not provide 100% security).

3) Stock up on eye medication prescriptions (if you can).
- As always, don’t wait until the last minute to contact your pharmacy and request a refill as soon as you’re due. It is important to have enough while in quarantine or if supplies become limited later on.

4) Avoid rubbing your eyes.
- While it can be hard to break this habit, it will greatly decrease the risk of infection. If you need to wipe your eye, use a tissue. People with dry eyes should use moisturizing drops to alleviate irritation. Be sure to wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before administering eye medications, and wash again afterwards.

5) Practice safe hygiene and social distancing.
- Wash your hands, avoid touching your face, stay home when sick, and regularly disinfect commonly touched surfaces of your home.

Please be safe and healthy!

Happy New Year! January is Glaucoma awareness month. It is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the United States. The American Academy of Ophthalmology advises that the best defense against developing glaucoma-related blindness is by having routine, comprehensive eye exams.


Happy October! It’s Halloween Safety month! One thing to keep in mind this season is that Halloween-store, non-prescription contact lenses are not safe to buy. They can cause a plethora of eye problems such as scratches on the cornea, corneal infections, and more as a result of them not being sterile.


Today is the first day of Healthy Aging Month! Here are a few tips to help protect and lower risk factors:
- Get an annual comprehensive, dilated eye exam.
- Stop smoking.
- Eat a diet rich in green, leafy vegetables and fish.
- Exercise.
- Maintain normal blood pressure.
- Control diabetes if you have it.
- Wear sunglasses and a brimmed hat any time you are outside in bright sunshine.
- Wear protective eyewear when working around your house or playing sports.

The difference between a normal eye and an eye with cataract is shown here.


It’s never too early to start caring for your eyes! In fact, a child’s ocular lenses do not filter out UV light as efficiently as an adult’s, according to The Vision Council. The World Health Organization notes that as much as 80 percent of a person’s lifetime UVR exposure occurs before the age of 18.

According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, some vitamins can help maintain vision for patients suffering from age-related macular degeneration (AMD), an eye condition in which a part of the retina called the macula is damaged. AMD can result in a loss of central vision while peripheral vision remains normal. Vitamins like E, C, zinc, and copper can help counter the degenerative effects from the condition. During AMD Awareness Month in February, we are highlighting various factors that can help manage the condition. Learn more about AMD, risk factors and treatments at

We hope everyone had a great weekend!
This is cutting edge medicine and not only does it mean potentially great things for eyes but for every other part of the body as well! If proven successful, this technique could help replace corneal transplants, which require surgery with donated corneas and fail nearly one-third of the time.
