It’s #BackToSchool season and OAO wants to make sure you #LIVEinFOCUS! That means visiting Whitby Vision Care and getting a comprehensive eye exam. Some vision and eye health problems are symptomless until it’s too late. Make sure your kids are ready to learn!
Great little video on the real value of glasses and contact lenses by Canadian Association of Optometry Students! Poor fit of contact lenses is not always obvious when they “feel ok” on your eyes. That’s why it’s important to get them properly fitted by a licensed professional. It only takes one bad incident to cause permanent vision loss.
Good job CAOS! 😊
What is your vision worth?
This is a great video illustrating the different kinds of tears and different components that make up your tears! Dry eye disease is very common so I explain this to people daily 🙂 To effectively manage your symptoms, I may recommend a specific kind of eye drops (they’re not all the same!), hot compresses, and/or various ointments or scrubs. If your eyes feel dry, or even if they feel overly watery, come in for a comprehensive assessment to find the right treatment for your tears! 💦

Eye twitching is very common, and I’ve been hearing from a lot of you… It drives you crazy! But don’t worry, you’re not going blind 🙂
Most eye twitches come and go, but sometimes a twitching eye can last for weeks or even months. Here are some of the common causes and how to stop it
Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in Canada. It is a group of eye diseases which lead to progressive degeneration of the optic nerve, which causes irreversible vision loss and potential blindness. There is no cure for glaucoma, but it can be controlled. Early detection is the key to preventing or slowing down vision loss. Make sure you are having annual comprehensive eye exams to check for changes in your eye health, because it can happen even if you think you “see fine” and you don’t need glasses! #GlaucomaAwarenessMonth
