Eye Health—

Genetics: Although genetics plays a role it isn’t a guarantee. Interestingly in near sightedness, the recent dramatic increase in the prevalence of myopia documented by several studies in North America and other countries points to environmental causes such as lack of time spent outdoors and greater amount of time spent doing near-work, such as reading, writing, and working on a computer.

Eye Exams: Having a comprehensive dilated eye exam every 1-2 years depending on your age and health is one of the best things you can do to make sure that you’re seeing the best you can and that you’re keeping your eyes and certain other organ systems healthy.

Digital Eye Strain: In this day and age, digital eyestrain is one of the leading known eye concerns facing the first world - also known as computer vision syndrome - and is linked to high-energy visible blue light from video screens.
