Is It Safe to Sleep with My Contacts In?
(http://ow.ly/sXVP30nmTJ6)

Although some contact lenses are FDA-approved for overnight use, clinical studies suggest people who sleep with their contacts in are between 10% and 15% more likely to experience an eye infection. Do your eyes a favor and take the time to remove your contact lenses, even when you're extra tired. Sleeping without contacts gives your eyes plenty of time to breathe and significantly lowers your risk of irritation or other complications.

What Are Progressive Lenses?
(http://ow.ly/Rgi230nmTJ3)

Progressive lenses are what's known as no-line, multifocal lenses. They're the modern equivalent of bifocals and trifocals, allowing patients to see clearly at a variety of distances with just one pair of eyeglasses. Many individuals need multifocal lenses after the age of 40; progressive lenses meet this need while still offering attractive, fashionable frame choices.

What Is Glaucoma?
(http://ow.ly/8C1q30nmTIZ)

Glaucoma is a common eye-related disease. It occurs when fluid builds up in the front of your eye, ultimately increasing intraocular pressure. If left untreated, this excess pressure damages the optic nerve, leading to vision distortions and even blindness. Glaucoma tends to run in families; regularly investing in eye exams can help detect the problem early on.

What Are Cataracts?
(http://ow.ly/T5pj30nmTIV)

Cataract is the medical term for a clouding of the eye's natural lens. Usually, cataracts form as a result of the aging process or following an injury or trauma to the affected eye. In their earliest stages, cataracts typically don't present symptoms, but as they progress, they can lead to cloudy, blurred, or dim vision.
