- Aug 19, 2014 - A Guide to Caring for Contact Lenses
Contact lenses require proper treatment and care in order to be a safe and feasible choice for those selecting a vision aid. Improper care can lead to damaged lenses, or or even serious eye infections or scratches, which on occasion can lead to blindness. People of all ages that are not capable of properly taking care of their contact lenses may want to seek an alternate form of corrective eye wear.
Not to worry, though... taking care of your lenses is easier than ever. With all-in-one solutions and disposable contacts, tending to your lenses is cheaper, takes less time and involves less effort than in the past. However, there are some essential guidelines to keep in mind.
First of all it is advised to consult with your optician to receive individualized advice. Additionally, it's important that you don't switch your care routine without checking with your eye doctor first. Certain products are not compatible with each other or with specific lenses and can damage your eyes. Our experienced staff can help you determine the right treatment for your contact lenses.
Proper lens care requires cleaning and disinfecting your lenses daily. Make sure to rinse your hands with soap and water prior to touching your contact lenses. Your eyes can be one of the quickest places for harmful bacteria to reach your body. Further, don't make the common mistake of using saline solution for cleaning or disinfecting your lenses. This is only suitable for rinsing and storing soft contacts. You should also be careful to disinfect your lens case with all-in-one solution after each use and to let it air out between uses. Professionals recommend that you replace your case at least four times a year.
It's true that there may be an assortment of lens care options, but with a little planning you can be sure you are caring for your lenses properly, guaranteeing healthier eyes and clearer vision!More »
- Aug 5, 2014 - Add Eye Exams to Your Back to School Routine: Lexington Kids' Eye Exams
It's that time of year again, when the days begin to get shorter, the weather slightly cooler, and children everywhere return to school. Now's the time to make sure your kids' eyesight is okay. Healthy eyesight is critical to the learning processes and a child's accomplishments in the classroom. There are many activities that demand optical skills, such as reading, writing and computer work, which children are expected to perform everyday. Despite the strong correlation between vision and learning, many parents miscalculate the occurrence of children affected by eye and vision problems.
A good number of the problems a child suffers from in the classroom can be the result of sight problems. The percentage of students who have undiagnosed problems with eyesight is exceedingly high. Studies demonstrate that 60 percent of students classified as "problem learners" actually have undiagnosed vision troubles. You can avoid childhood trauma if you make it a priority to ensure your child's vision is up to par.
Don't push off your child's first eye exam until kindergarten. Your child's doctor should do a dilated eye check-up to identify any major eye problems within the first two months of life. It's critical to uncover any issues right away, since children are usually more responsive to treatment when diagnosed early. Furthermore as a parent, it's important to see whether your child enjoys reading. Generally, kindergarteners are excited to look at books and attempt to read. Children that avoid books or reading may be experiencing a vision problem. Before you jump to any conclusions, it's a good idea to get a vision screening. For an eye exam for your child in Lexington, KY, call us to schedule an appointment.
Keep in mind that the earlier a vision problem is detected and taken care of, the greater the chances for successful treatment. And vision is an essential component for school work. If a child's eyesight is limited, growing visual requirements such as finer print in books or more homework can considerably change a student's performance. At the same time new technological advances in the classroom, such as the use of interactive whiteboards, can also potentially make less obvious vision problems worse. A student with poor vision will be affected both at school, and emotionally and physically. Before school starts this year, make sure your child's vision is on par!

Unfortunately, every 4th of July also sees about 11,000 individuals go to the emergency room for fireworks related injuries with 18 percent of those injuries involving the eye. In fact, eye injury is second only to burns when it comes to injury from fireworks.
