More children are being diagnosed with vision problems...
Sites selling prescription eyewear offer convenience and lower prices, but doctors warn they’re not ideal for everyone.
We explain what all the numbers on your eyeglass prescription mean, and how your eyeglass lenses work to correct your vision.
A month’s rent just to see straight? It’s easy to spend hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on your eye care. Pick out a designer frame, add prescription lenses with a high-tech coating, and if you’re not careful glasses can cost you serious money. As for contact lenses, the daily wear variety can easily run $500 a year. On the assumption that none of us have dollars to waste these days, here’s a Patient Money look at careful vision care.
To sum up, the sun emits harmful rays 365 days a year, no matter if it is cloudy or rainy. The damage suffered is proportional to the amount of exposure and children absolutely must be protected. If they are highly exposed and unprotected, they will be among those who will develop cataracts at an earlier age, between 55 and 65 years of age, and run the risk of skin cancer of the eyelids, which are more fragile than the rest of the dermis.
EVERYTHING seems to stiffen up as people age, and our eyes are no exception. As the years go by, the lens of the eye becomes harder and less elastic. The result is a gradual worsening of the ability to focus on objects up close, called presbyopia.
Here is a clear plea, written in legible 12-point type, from middle-aged women to package designers. Increase the size of the print on your products because our eyesight is weaker, our patience is shorter, and our brand loyalty is volatile. Give us big type or skip the hype because we're not buying it anymore.

When I started Eyedolatry in 2011, I had just graduated from the Southern College of Optometry a few days prior. Like most new graduates, I wanted a place where I could read advice for my personal growth in the newest trends in patient care, contact lens fitting, and practice management. But in writing my posts, I realized that my true passion was bringing optometry to everyone. So if you ever wondered what that little growth on your eyelid was, or wanted someone to explain glaucoma in words you could understand, consider Eyedolatry your place for patient-friendly education.
