Reading Glasses. Prescription vs Drug Store Models.

So you are getting to that age where you find yourself tromboning a book, note  or pamphlet in order to read it (if you don’t know what tromboning means, this article doesn’t apply to you yet, but wait, you’ll understand someday). For those you haven’t previously had eye problems, this time comes usually around age 40 or so. Time to face it, you need reading glasses. Now the question is, do you just go to the drugstore and pick up something off the rack, or do you make an appointment with your optometrist. As always, there are a few things to think about when making this decision.

Back to Cool – Getting Your Kids to Wear their Glasses to School

The flurry of activity known as September has come and is almost gone, with another school year underway.

We’re in the early stages of a ten month journey to remember to pack a lunch, make sure the homework is done and the agenda has been signed, and a million other little tasks that are part of the great adventure our kids take part in called “school”.

For many children, the daily routine includes remembering to bring and wear glasses, to correct or prevent vision problems.

Pregnancy and Your Eyes

A woman’s body undergoes many changes during pregnancy.  Your hormones will fluctuate, her body will retain water, and there is a good chance that there will be some unpredictable changes during her pregnancy.  Not least among these is the fact you’re your eyesight can change.

Most of the time, changes in eyesight during pregnancy are temporary, and revert to normal after your baby is born.  The most common side effect of pregnancy that affects vision is thickening of the cornea as it retains water.  The result can be blurred vision.  In most cases, corrective lenses or a change in an existing prescription aren’t required, as the change is slight and vision returns to normal after childbirth.
