Your Eye Health
Learning about your eye health can be complicated – and might even seem overwhelming at first. To simplify things for our patients, we've created our Eye Health Library, a comprehensive library of vision-related information. We invite you to browse through our library to find information that will help you better understand how your vision works, common eye conditions, surgeries and how your vision changes as you age.

- Cataracts Cataracts are a common cause of vision loss after age 55. Learn more about recognizing cataracts symptoms, protecting your eyes and understanding cataract surgery.
- Diabetes and Eyesight How does diabetes affect vision? What does diabetes mean for eyesight? Learn more about eye problems resulting from diabetes including diabetic retinopathy, the most common diabetic eye disease and a leading contributor to blindness for adults in America.
- Glaucoma Early detection is key, so knowing the early symptoms of glaucoma could go a long way toward preventing and treating this common eye disease.
- Macular Degeneration Macular Degeneration is an eye disease that affects the portion of the eye responsible for processing fine detail and providing sharp central vision (called the macula).
- Astigmatism Often mistakenly called "stigmatism," this common vision problem can be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses or refractive surgery.
- Blepharitis Red, swollen eyelids and crusty debris at the base of your eyelashes are signs you may have blepharitis.
- Keratoconus This eye disease causes the cornea to grow thinner and bulge forward in an irregular cone-shape. Treatment options range from gas permeable contact lenses to a cornea transplant.
- If you are over 40, already wear glasses, and your "arms aren't long enough" to read a newspaper, it's time for multifocal lenses.
- There is no need to advertise your age with bifocals or trifocals-choose progressive lense
