The phrase “See you in September” has special meaning for us. Of course we’re happy to see you all year long, but September is designated as Healthy Aging Month, so here are some ways to keep your eyes healthy, so that we can see you every month of the year.

Move or Lose (Sight of) It

Probably THE most helpful tip to healthy aging is staying healthy. While we know that keeping your body moving is good for your physical wellbeing, it’s also good for your vision. The American Academy of Ophthalmology reveals that regular exercise helps keep our weight in the normal range, reducing the risk of diabetes and diabetic retinopathy. This includes gentler exercise like walking, yoga, tai chi, stretching and breathing. So come on feet, start walkin’.

The Best Veggies for Best Vision

Eating your vegetables, especially carrots, is not just a fable; they really do contribute to healthy vision. The vitamins in carrots and other brightly colored vegetables help keep your eyes healthy and your vision strong with the antioxidants they provide. Lutein and zeaxanthin are two potent antioxidants that studies have shown can help prevent eye diseases like macular degeneration. So it turns out mom was right all along.

Stay Focused on Eye Health

Go Team, Go! Back to School!

It’s time to welcome the kids back to school and Rand Eye Institute is on your team with information during Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month. There are an estimated 42,000 sports-related eye injuries each year and the majority of them happen to children.

We all remember being a kid. The excitement of after-school sports and heading outside of the classroom can seem so urgent and important to an active child. Of course it is, but please be sure that your children don’t hit the field, court, diamond or swimming pool without proper eye protection. It really makes a difference.

Because eye injuries are one of the leading causes of vision loss in children, make sure your children always:

Wear protective eyewear while participating in sports and recreational activities.

Play with age-appropriate toys. Make sure your children avoid toys with sharp protruding parts or any flying or broken pieces that could end up in their eyes. If they’re carrying sharp objects, always point them to the ground.

Parent and Child Eye Exams

At Rand Eye Institute, we’ve been sharing helpful tips on getting your kids ready for back to school by reminding you that they should have their vision checked before the school bell rings.

But here’s a good suggestion: Why not make a dual eye exam appointment? Consider having your vision and your child’s vision checked all in one visit, after all, August is “National Eye Exam Month”.

By scheduling a comprehensive eye exam at Rand Eye Institute, you could be heading off future vision problems now, especially if you have diabetes or have a family history of vision problems.

So with vision on our mind this month, keep good vision in the family. Call 954-782-1700 or “Click the link below” to schedule a dual eye exam* for you and your son or daughter. From our family at Rand Eye Institute, to yours, have a safe Fall season and a successful jump-start to a successful school year.

Know your Rand Eye-Q: Did you know that ophthalmology care is covered under your medical insurance and not your vision plan, this is a common misconception. Please feel free to call us to see if our specialists are participating with your medical insurance.

*A dual eye exam appointment is considered two separate appointments. Ask our appointment specialist for more information when scheduling your appointments.

National Eye Exam Month

At Rand Eye Institute, we know how important it is for you to keep up with your Eye-Q, that is, knowledge about your vision and the understanding of how to keep yours at its brightest and best.
August is “National Eye Exam Month” and healthy vision starts with an eye exam. The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends that you have a baseline eye exam at age 40, the time when the early signs of disease or changes in your vision may occur. A baseline screening can help identify signs of eye disease at an early stage, when treatment can have the greatest impact on preserving your vision.

If you’re 65 or older, it’s recommended that you have your eyes checked every year or two for signs of age-related diseases, like glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.

During a dilated eye exam you’ll be checked for the following:

Medical/family history
Pupil reaction
Side/peripheral vision
Eye movement, muscle balance and coordination

National Dry Eye Awareness Month


What Causes Dry Eyes?

Our tears serve a purpose, they are designed to provide much needed moisture to our eyes. Later in life, some of us can experience dry eyes, a condition in which the eyes do not provide the moisture we need.
Dry eye is a multi factorial disease. Sometimes it can occur if the immune system attacks the lacrimal glands and our eyes fail to produce enough tears. It also may be secondary to chronic inflammation of the lids, when the oil glands in the lids don’t produce enough oil. It can also be a combination of both.

Who is most Likely to Experience Dry Eyes?

Dry eye is a condition more commonly found in females, especially those who are post-menopausal. It can, however, be found in either gender, typically after the age of 50 and more commonly after age 65. It is important to know that dry eyes can occur at any age.

Fireworks Eye Safety on the 4th of July

We live in the land of the free, so we get to celebrate our love for America every year on the 4th of July. We barbecue, swim, play sports, get together with friends and family, and traditionally, we watch fireworks. Many of us take part in the setting off of fireworks. Know the law where you live concerning the use of personal fireworks, and know one other thing for sure: The law of averages could make you a statistic.

Thousands of people in the U.S. every year, many of them children, suffer eye injuries caused by fireworks. In the most severe cases, fireworks can rupture the globe of the eye, cause chemical and thermal burns, corneal abrasions and retinal detachment — all of which can permanently cause eye damage and affect vision.

Healthy Aging Month

It’s Healthy Aging Month, and because your future is so bright-here are some Rand EYE-deas and tips to keep your mind healthy too.

Of course, exercise fires up endorphins, which stimulate your mind, but exercising your intellectual skills, works out the muscles in your brain to keep them firing on all cylinders too.

You Have Built-in Windows

Since your eyes are the windows to the world, expand your mind, pick up a crossword puzzle, do a brain-teaser or watch Jeopardy (we seem to know every answer when we watch at home, LOL). If you look online, you’ll “discover” websites that offer free puzzles, some you can create and print yourself. Consider making a puzzle using the memories of your life and then testing a family member or friend.

The Eyes Have It..

Back to School Eye Health – Vision Warning Signs

Summer’s not over just yet, but back to school is just around the corner.

These are formative years for your child, personally and physically. If you have noticed a change in your child’s behavior it may be due to a change in his or her vision.

Below is a list of warning signs. If your child demonstrates any of these symptoms, it is advisable to consult your eye care professional.

Child holds reading material too close to face-fourteen to sixteen inches is recommended.

Child sits too close to TV-eight to ten feet is recommended.

Complains that writing on classroom blackboard is blurry or too small.

Missing the ball very often in sports may indicate a problem with vision.

Back to School Eye Health

While you’re busy with enrollment forms, back-to-school shopping, schedules and immunizations for your child, August is busy being Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month, making it a good time to remind you to get your child’s eyes checked before that first school bell rings.

Most children have healthy eyes, but one in four, or 25% of school-aged children either have vision problems or suffer from some degree of visual impairment. What’s more concerning is that The American Academy of Ophthalmology estimates that 80% of preschoolers don’t receive a needed vision screening.

How We Treat Dry Eyes

Punctal Plugs

We have glands that produce tears, an aqueous solution or oil secretions, and then we have drainage ducts. At the nasal aspect of both upper and lower lids is a small hole, the beginning of a tube that drains from the eye to the nose. If your eyes are very dry, we insert a tiny polymer stopper into the drainage duct to block it. If we block the lower duct, we cut approximately 50% of the drainage, so the tears that are produced last longer on the surface of the eye instead of being drained through the nose. If the dry eye is very severe, we can block both the upper and lower punctum so that whatever tears produced will have more of an effect.

Artificial, preservative-free tears

We lose tears from drainage and evaporation. Artificial lubricating tears and gels are available to add moisture to dry eyes. To lubricate the eye, there are different types of solutions available. There are watery solutions, and we have gel solutions, which are thicker and last longer on the surface of the eye, but may slightly blur vision. We have ointments, which are a greasy petroleum gel-like supplement. Adding a warm compress in the morning washes the ointment out, providing additional relief.

Senior Independence Month

We’ve SEEN your Independence, and we like what we see!

Rand Eye Institute celebrates Senior Independence Month. We salute our seniors who have the Vision to live in the new millennium in a positive and upbeat manner. As we get older, we realize that we need the help of friends and family in our day-to-day lives. Maybe we can no longer safely commute in rush hour traffic, carry groceries up three flights of stairs, or even see things as clearly as we used to. The truth is, no one wants to feel helpless and dependent upon others for everything, and while sooner or later we’ll have to surrender some of those tasks, there are still ways to feel independent and useful in your own life. Here are some of the ways when it comes to vision:

Take a Drive on Independence Road

We all enjoy a Sunday ride or a scenic road trip, navigating towards making new memories along the way and vision plays an important role in achieving this. If you love dinners out with friends or night-time entertainment, having restrictions on your driving will surely place a limitation on your fun. When you start to experience difficulty driving at night and seeing increased glare and halos from oncoming headlights, it’s time to visit your ophthalmologist. You may be experiencing the signs of cataracts, but great news, with the latest advancements in laser cataract surgery you may regain your independence and get behind the wheel in no time. So jump back in the driver seat, take control of your vision and buckle up-the road ahead awaits you!

Cataract Prevention is Possible

There are several ways to prolong cataract development, and one sensible way, is through nutrition. Certain nutrients and nutritional supplements may help you reduce your risk of developing cataracts, so take note of them and put them on a list for your next trip to the grocery store.

While shopping, don’t pass up some old favorites: Whole grain cereal, sunflower seeds, almonds, spinach and avocados, all good sources of vitamin E. Studies have shown that the risk of developing cataracts could be as much as 60% lower when you include these foods in a balanced diet. Don’t overlook kale and other green, leafy vegetables either. While some may not enjoy their taste, remember you can blend them into a tasty and healthy smoothie.

Top of line ophthalmologist office! I will absolutely be a repeat customer and highly recommend them to everyone.They are very thorough and professional. They were extremely efficient in getting me in an out very timely which is important! I saw Dr. Arnold and Dr. Estrin and they were clearly experienced to say the least. It takes a lot for me to say this, but they truly made me feel like family and that each patient matters. Thank you again Rand Eye Institute!

Such a reputation for sub-par care. Messed my sight up permanently. Have to live with it every day for rest of my life!
Response from the owner - 7 months ago
Rand Eye Institute does not have an H. Coleman in our database. Therefore H. Coleman is not one of our patients.

Excellent doctors, excellent equipment, excellent comprehensive care, information and responsibility for the patients. The best of all is the experience and confidence that the patient gains after going through the whole process in order to make the decision to submit your visual ability in their hands. Two surgeries, one in each eye with excellent results. I recommend this place to anybody who values their sight and wants to see clearly.

My boss who is an attorney and who is never happy with any company was very, very impressed with Rand's service. He encouraged me to get my eyes done by Dr. Rand at Rand Eye. "EXCELLENT staff and service from being picked up by transportation to surgery." "Love you all, great job" Thanks again.
