Cataracts are a common eye condition that can cause blurred vision, difficulty with glare, and eventually lead to vision loss if not treated. Understanding what cataracts are and how they develop is crucial in taking proactive steps to prevent them.

Does Screen Time Accelerate Myopia Progression?

As a society, we have become increasingly reliant on electronic devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and computers, for our daily tasks and entertainment. This increased screen time has raised concerns about the potential impact on our vision, particularly for those with myopia (nearsightedness). Myopia is a common vision condition in which individuals have difficulty seeing distant objects clearly, while close objects appear normal. This condition affects a significant portion of the global population, and its prevalence has been increasing in recent years.

Am I a Candidate for Neurolens?

Neurolenses are not your typical eyeglass lenses, as they incorporate a contoured prism into their design. This contoured prism helps to realign the eyes, allowing them to work together more effectively and reducing the strain on the visual system. By addressing the root cause of many common vision problems, Neurolenses can provide lasting relief for symptoms such as eye strain, headaches, and difficulties with focusing.
