Dry Eye Syndrome: Symptoms and Treatment

Dry eye syndrome is a common condition that we see most often in older adults. We call it "keratoconjunctivitis sicca." You can call it DES, or simply dry eye. For millions of people, dry eye is a condition in which the eyes don't produce enough tears to adequately lubricate and nourish the surface of the eye (the cornea) and surrounding tissues.

Polarizing Lenses -- The ABCs

Polarized lenses are used in sunglasses to reduce glare from reflective surfaces such as the surface of a lake or the hood of a car. They accomplish this feat through a process called polarization, much like a Venetian blind controls the amount of light entering a room through a window.

The Benefits of Daily Contact Lenses

When we conduct a contact lens evaluation and fitting in our office, your personal preferences and routines help determine which lens replacement schedule we recommend. The most common replacement schedules are every day, every two weeks, or every month. Each schedule has its strong points.
