The month of August is dedicated to preventing eye injuries and vision loss. One of 20 children (ages 3 to 5) has a vision problem that could result in permanent vision if left untreated. Despite this unsettling statistics, 80 percent of preschoolers do not receive an eye screening.
Children’s Eye Health and Safety Awareness Month encourages parents to learn how to protect their child’s eyesight and save their child’s eyesight from vision threatening conditions through regular eye exams, early detection and proper treatment. Eye exams for children are important because vision changes can occur without you or your child noticing.
Please share this post with your family and friends to encourage eye exams for children.

"The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. My Doctor Krystal Long gave me a top notch optometrical exam and listened to and answered all of my questions. She also was friendly and knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. I will definitely stick with them for my eyeglass exams and glasses and I would recommend this establishment to anyone. I also brought my own frames which they measured for me without comment on bringing my own. I was informed about eye dilation versus eye mapping before my exam. The VA hospital here does that for me every two years so I chose the dilation. Apparently most insurances pay for dilation only so check your insurance before you go." - William D.

Your corneas are AMAZING!

The cornea is the transparent front part of the eye that covers the iris, pupil, and anterior chamber, providing most of an eye’s optical power.
The cornea has unmyelinated nerve endings sensitive to touch, temperature and chemicals; a touch of the cornea causes an involuntary reflex to close the eyelid.
Because transparency is of prime importance the cornea does not have blood vessels; it receives nutrients via diffusion from the tear fluid at the outside and the aqueous humour at the inside and also from neurotrophins supplied by nerve fibers that innervate it.

The cornea is the only part of a human body that has no blood supply; it gets oxygen directly through the air, and cornea is the fastest healing tissue in the human body, thus, most corneal abrasions will heal within 24-36 hours.

Keep your corneas and eyes healthy! Call 701-492-3937 today.

Did you know that 1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women are affected by color blindness?
The Ishihara test, developed in 1917, is a test for determining color blindness by means of a series of cards each having colored dots that form one pattern to the normal eye and a different pattern to the eye that is color blind.
Our comprehensive eye exams will include the Ishihara test.

August is Children's Eye Health and Safety Month!
Children should have an eye exam at 6 months and this should be repeated at age 3. Once they start school, eye exams should be done yearly. About 80% of what children learn in school is taught visually, which means if a child has undetected and uncorrected vision problem, it will affect the child’s development and performances in school. Some warning signs that your child may be experiences vision problems are:
>Tilting the head or squinting to see the class board better or when watching TV
>Frequent eye rubbing when he’s trying to concentrate on something
>Holding a book too close to his eyes or often sitting close to the TV
>Consistently using a finger to guide eyes when reading
Closing one eye to read or watch TV
>Excessive tearing without any tear-causing stimuli
>Eye discomfort when using a computer or any digital device
>Sensitivity to light, which sometimes accompanied by headache or nausea
>Wandering eyes
