Have you ever watched a wide receiver run with all his might to catch a seemingly impossible pass and score a touchdown? The functional vision skills of depth perception and tracking play a huge role in that amazing feat. If your student athlete is struggling with such skills, your optometrist can help with a diagnosis.

While strong visual acuity is essential for student athletes, functional vision skills (eye teaming, tracking, focusing, and visualization) are equally important. Your optometrist is your go-to resource for both functional vision assessment and eyewear solutions. Call us to schedule a comprehensive eye exam today!

Visual health doesn’t stop at 20/20. Hidden challenges such as strabismus (crossed eyes) and amblyopia (lazy eye) are rarely detected by school vision screenings but can pose significant challenges with depth perception in the classroom and on the sports field. Schedule an eye-teaming assessment at your optometrist’s office.

Help prevent the spread of pink eye (and other bacteria and viruses) by washing hands properly: lather up for a full 20 seconds under warm water. A fun way to pass the time? Sing "Happy Birthday" twice. Bonus: It’s a great way to promote this healthy habit in kids!

Diagnosed with pink eye? The goal of treatment is to ease discomfort and irritation in the eye, shorten the length of the infection and prevent its spread. Antibiotic eye ointment or eye drops are very effective in cases of bacterial conjunctivitis.

If you're a contact lens wearer and you contract pink eye (conjunctivitis), stop wearing your lenses immediately and see your optometrist. You should wear your glasses until the infection clears.

Pink eye – AKA conjunctivitis – is an infection of the clear, thin layer of tissue that covers the whites of your eye. It can affect one or both eyes, and can also be highly contagious. If you suspect pink eye, see your optometrist immediately.

Back to school means an increase in shared viruses and bacteria. Touching doorknobs, keyboards, railings and playground equipment and then touching our faces--something the average person does hundreds of times a day--can result in an eye infection.

When it comes to screen time, kids benefit from the 20/20/20 rule as much as adults do! Every 20 minutes of device use, encourage kids to look away from your screen, focus on something 20 feet away, and keep your gaze there for about 20 seconds.
