You squint but eventually have to walk up to every sign to see what’s down that aisle. If that sounds like you, you’re likely suffering from myopia, also known as nearsightedness.

You want your pre-schooler to enjoy the time they have before it’s time to begin their school journey. But before your […]

But, there is some good news for those with parents with poor eyesight, you may not inherit their bad eyesight. This isn’t to say […]
Our bodies are a strange and complex thing. We find a way to cure one ailment, and just as quickly, a new one begins affecting mass populations. A relatively new eye condition that seems to be on the rise with no signs of slowing down is myopia. This condition is also known more colloquially as […]
In the world of optics, intraocular lenses, or IOLs, tend to slip below the public radar.
