👀 👀Eye Facts:: Anterior uveitis is a condition where the middle layer of the eye becomes inflamed. If untreated, it can lead to development of glaucoma, cataracts, or retinal edema. Treatment commonly includes eye drops for pupil dilation and steroids, and anti-inflammatory medication. Anterior uveitis can be caused by foreign debris in the eye, or getting hit with an object. It may be associated with rheumatoid arthritis, rubella, and mumps. 💡To know if you might have anterior uveitis, check for these symptoms:
🔸Red, sore and inflamed eye
🔸Blurred vision
🔸Sensitivity to light
🔸Irregular-shaped pupil 👓An optometrist can check for this condition by examining your eye under bright light using high magnification tools or other diagnostic tests. [Source: www.aoa. org ]

Straining to see your screen? 👀 Computer Vision Syndrome is a repetitive-motion-disorder similar to carpal tunnel that can get worse over time if untreated. When your eyes follow the same path over and over, the act of focusing and refocusing causes a lot of strain on the eye muscles. The screen's flicker and glare also makes this activity more stressful than reading a book or paper. Around age 40, your eyes naturally become less flexible and your ability to focus starts to degenerate.
ℹYou may notice blurred vision, double vision, dry eyes, headaches, or neck pain. Work performance may also be affected if this condition is not treated.
ℹTo help prevent CVS, simple changes can reduce the strain on your vision, such as:
✅Changing lighting to reduce glare.
✅Positioning your monitor to be 20-28 inches away from your face.
✅Allowing yourself time to take breaks every 20 minutes.
✅Adjusting the brightness of your screen.

ℹVisit your eye doctor regularly to keep your glasses or contact lenses up to date. You may require a special pair of glasses specifically for screen time, such as a bifocal lens or tinted lens material to boost contrast and filter out glare. Adults aren't the only ones who spend a lot of time viewing screens! Make sure to bring children in for checkups and ensure their tablets and computers are used responsibly.

Keratoconus :: when the eye's cornea is cone-shaped instead of round, the light entering the eye is unable to focus correctly and vision is distorted. Eyes may also be sensitive to light and glare. Usually becoming apparent during teen years, Keratoconus may progress 10-20 years, causing the cornea to bulge more and vision to become worse. Eyeglasses or soft contact lenses can help correct nearsightedness and astigmatism caused by keratocous. In later stages, rigid gas permeable contact lenses can be prescribed and carefully fitted to achieve adequate vision. In worst cases, a corneal transplant is necessary. If you think you may be developing Keratoconus, call Vision Care Service today to schedule an appointment. [Source: www.aoa. org]

Seeing specks in your vision? 👀👀 What optometrists refer to as "floaters" are actually shadows cast on your retina by small flecks of a gel protein called collagen. These protein fibers clump together in an area at the back of your eye named the vitreous. 💡Floaters are common with age, and are usually no cause for alarm. However, contact your eye doctor immediately if you are also experiencing any of these other symptoms, as it may be a sign of a more serious problem such as retinal detachment or vitreous hemorrhage: -Floaters begin occurring more frequently or the floater changes in intensity, size, or shape
-You see flashes of light
-You lose your peripheral (side) vision
-You develop eye pain
-You have blurred vision or a loss of vision [Source: www.healthline. com]

Strabismus: What causes crossed eyes? 👀👀 Each eye has six external muscles that control eye position and movement. For normal vision, the position, neurological control, and functioning must be coordinated perfectly for both eyes. Strabismus can be caused by problems with the muscles themselves, or other times in the nerves of the brain. Genetics may also affect the risk of developing crossed eyes. Untreated, it can develop into double vision, lazy eye, or difficulty reading and learning in a classroom. 👍 Follow our Facebook page for more Eye Facts! [Source: www.allaboutvision. com]

Eye Facts: Retinoblastoma occurs in 1 out of 20,000 children in the U.S., making it the most common pediatric cancer. This condition is usually first noticed when a child's photograph is taken with flash and the pupil appears white or glowing. If it does, contact your optometrist immediately, as early detection can reduce the severity of the illness and increase life expectancy. Even if no vision problems are apparent, the American Optometric Association recommends scheduling your baby's first eye exam at 6 months old. [Source: www.aoa. org]

Oh Conjunctivitis! What are the 4 types of PINK EYE and how do I treat them? 💨〰💥⚠ 💨Allergic conjunctivitis occurs commonly among people with seasonal allergies. Substances enter the eye that trigger allergic reactions. 💨 If you can, avoid or remove the irritant. In mild cases, artificial tears or a cool compress can relieve discomfort. In more severe cases, use a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication or antihistamines. Topical steroid eye drops may also be prescribed. 〰Bacterial conjunctivitis is an infection that is usually caused by staphylococcal bacteria from your own skin. Some sources of the bacteria include unclean hands, insects, contaminated eye makeup or brushes, and facial lotion (especially when shared by other people). 〰Treat with antibiotic eye drops or ointments. 💥Viral conjunctivitis is mostly caused by contagious viruses like the common cold. The cold virus can spread along the body's mucous membranes in the lungs, throat, nose, and eyes. It can also develop through exposure to the coughing or sneezing of someone with an upper respiratory tract infection. 💥This pink eye can not be treated with drops, ointments, or antibiotics because it is a virus which has to run its course (sometimes up to two or three weeks). Relieve discomfort with cool compresses, artificial tear solutions, or topical steroid drops to reduce for inflammation. ⚠Chemical Conjunctivitis happens when irritants like pollution or noxious chemicals in the air or chlorine in swimming pools gets into the eyes. Carefully flushing the eyes with saline solution or applying topical steroids can help. ⚠If a chemical spills in your eye, flush the eye for several minutes with a lot of water and contact your medical provider. 👌info source: www.aoa. org

👀👀 Have you noticed yourself or others holding objects at a distance to see them clearly, like books, menus, phones, or tablets? This could be due to Presbyopia. 👀👀 Most people begin to experience signs of Presbyopia around age 40, with about 1.3 billion documented cases worldwide. This vision condition makes small print and closeup objects harder to see, causes headaches, eye strain, and visual fatigue. Getting older causes Presbyopia in most adults, as the flexibility of your eye's lens naturally deteriorates and thickens over time. More specifically, the proteins in the lens become harder and less elastic, leading to focus problems in vision. Reading glasses can address the effects of Presbyopia. 👓 ☎ Call us to schedule your eye exam today!

Are you experiencing problems with your peripheral or side vision? 👀👻Do you have to turn your head to see what's to your immediate right or left? Do you have blurred vision, nausea, and headaches? Do you see "halos" around bright lights? You might have glaucoma. Glaucoma can lead to blindness by damaging the optic nerve. The eye continuously produces a fluid called the aqueous, that must drain from the eye to maintain healthy eye pressure. The eye's drainage canals become blocked, and the fluid accumulation causes pressure to build within the eye, causing damaging pressure to the optic nerve.

👀Astigmatism is a refractive error that occurs when light comes to multiple focus points on the retina instead of a single focus point. This causes vision to be blurred or distorted both closeup and far away. Symptoms of astigmatism include eye strain, squinting, and headaches.
👓
This refractive error is usually due to the curved cornea having an oblong shape (like a football) instead of a healthy cornea that has more of a round shape (like a baseball). An irregular shape of the eye's lens can also create astigmatism. Normally the cornea and lens are smooth and curved equally, helping to sharpen the focus of light rays.
👓
Uncorrected astigmatism can seriously impact a child's ability to perform well in school and athletics. Adults are quicker to realize their vision isn't as good as it should be. Children, on the other hand, may not be aware they have errors in their eyesight. This is why it is crucial for children to have regular eye exams to detect vision problems as early as possible. 📞Call Vision Care Service in Little Rock to schedule an appointment today!

👀👀Cataracts, the clouding of the eye's natural lens, are the most common cause of vision loss in people over age 40 and is the principal cause of blindness in the world. More than 22 million Americans age 40 and older are affected by cataracts. At first, a cataract starts out small and has little effect on your vision. You may notice that your vision is blurred a little, like looking through a cloudy piece of glass or viewing an impressionist painting. A cataract may make light from the sun or a lamp seem too bright or glaring. Or you may notice when you drive at night that the oncoming headlights cause more glare than before. Colors may not appear as bright as they once did. 📞Call us at Vision Care Service to ask your doctor if you may be experiencing symptoms of cataracts. (501) 280-0154

Hyperopia, commonly known as farsightedness, is a vision condition when distant objects appear in focus, while closer objects are blurry and difficult to see. Most people with hyperopia experience headaches, eye squinting, and fatigue when working on closeup tasks. This can easily be corrected by wearing glasses or contact lenses to change the way the light focuses in the eye. 👓
About 25% of the population are diagnosed with hyperopia. An eye care professional can see whether you have hyperopia and other refractive errors during a comprehensive dilated eye examination. People with this condition often visit their eye care professional with complaints of visual discomfort or blurred vision.
👓
This vision problem occurs when light rays entering the eye focus behind the retina, rather than directly on it. The eyeball of a farsighted person is shorter than normal. Many children are born farsighted, and some of them "outgrow" it as the eyeball lengthens with normal growth.

My-WHAT?!? ~~ Myopia! Another word for nearsightedness, myopia is a vision condition when closer objects appear in focus while distant objects are blurry. This can easily be corrected by wearing glasses or contact lenses. 👓
At least 33% of Americans have been diagnosed with myopia. Studies suggest a rise in nearsightedness in the recent years could be due to increased exposure to digital screens like phones and computers, combined with decreased exposure to outdoor sunlight (though the exact cause is unknown).
👓
Myopia occurs when the eyeball is too long, relative to the focusing power of the cornea and lens of the eye. This causes light rays to focus at a point in front of the retina, rather than directly on its surface. Nearsightedness also can be caused by the cornea and/or lens being too curved for the length of the eyeball. In some cases, myopia is due to a combination of these factors.
👓
Myopia typically begins in childhood and you may have a higher risk if your parents are nearsighted. In most cases, nearsightedness stabilizes in early adulthood but sometimes it continues to progress with age.

Why are eye exams so important?
It's easy to overlook the importance of eye exams because eyes rarely hurt when there's a problem.Having an eye test won't just tell you if you need new glasses or a change of prescription – it's also an important checkup for other sides of your health. Eye tests can identify many general health problems and early signs of eye conditions before you're aware of any symptoms, many of which can be treated if found early enough.
----
How often should I have an eye test?
Optometrists recommend that most people have an eye test about every two years. People over 40 and people from black or minority ethnic groups may need sight tests more often.
----
Anyone can develop sight problems, but some people have a higher risk of eye disease. It's especially important to have regular eye tests if you are:
+Above 60 years old.
+From certain ethnic groups – for example, people from African-Caribbean communities are at greater risk of developing glaucoma and diabetes, and people from south Asian communities are at a greater risk of developing diabetes; diabetic retinopathy, where the retina becomes damaged, is a common complication of diabetes.
+Someone with a learning disability.
+From a family with a history of eye disease.

This summer, be sure to thank your eyes for absorbing sunlight! 👀🌞 The photosensitive cells in our human eyes communicate with the pituitary gland, the pineal gland, and the hypothalamus of the brain. Exposing our eyes to the right amount of sunlight is good for our body's cycles, hormone regulation, sleep patterns, and nervous system. But be careful! Too much sunlight can of course be just as harmful to our eyes. Soak up some sun this summer!
