You’re at the grocery store searching for the pasta section but when you look up at the aisle signs, they’re blurry. 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. Myopia is caused […]

Being a toddler is an exciting time. Kids spend their days discovering the world by reading (or rather looking at pictures while you read to them), playing games, jumping, running, crawling and rolling around. You want your pre-schooler to enjoy the time they have before it’s time to begin their school journey. But before your […]
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. They’re more expensive and intrusive than corrective lenses and don’t quite have the sci-fi appeal or mass-marketing muscle of LASIK. For all that, they remain widely used in the treatment of cataracts as well as myopia. Follow along, and […]
It’s probably not controversial to call early childhood an important, formative period. After all, it’s where we develop the basis of our personalities and habits, our likes and our dislikes, and even lay the foundation of good or poor health. Eyesight is also subject to change very early on in a child’s life. Over the […]
As obesity rates soar in the US and other countries, childhood obesity rates soar right alongside them. Numbers have largely leveled out in North America, but that doesn’t make them any less grim, as more than one-third of 6 to 11 year-olds were considered overweight or obese in 2012. This is far from a quiet […]
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD, has become one of the most commonly diagnosed childhood behavioral conditions. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports one in nine children receive a diagnosis under current clinical guidelines, a number that has caused an enormous amount of controversy between physicians, educators, parents, and other groups. Many critics […]
As if adult eye health wasn’t complex enough. Vision problems are enormously widespread among children of just about any age, but often don’t receive the same attention as disorders in the general adult population. It’s time to go over the numbers. Not only are many disorders already affecting a shocking number of younger people, but […]
Visual impairment can have a major impact on your life, no matter how you lead it. Anyone dealing with impaired or absent sight can tell you that even a small loss of eyesight can require some major changes that will take some getting used to. Those difficulties become even more pronounced if you happen to […]
Most of us can probably agree that the state of health care today is an awful lot better than it was a few decades ago. Since then, we’ve had huge strides forward – just look at laser surgery, breakthroughs in genetics, and the numerous vaccines that have been developed and improved. But even while the […]
The obvious question is, what the heck is orthokeratology? The short answer: orthokeratology (or Ortho-k) is a cutting-edge treatment for nearsighted children. We’ll unpack that moving forward, but here’s the basic gist: ortho-k treatments involve using specially designed overnight contacts to correct myopia, or nearsightedness. As with any such treatment, there’s plenty to like and […]
