8) Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye) - Conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye, is an infection or inflammation of the conjunctiva - the thin, protective membrane that covers the surface of the eyeball and inner surface of the eyelids. Caused by bacteria, viruses, allergens and other irritants like smoke and dust, pink eye is highly contagious and is usually accompanied by redness in the white of the eye and increased tearing and/or discharge. While many minor cases improve within two weeks, some can develop into serious corneal inflammation and threaten sight. If you conjunctivitis, visit your eye care provider for an examination and treatment.

09) Diabetic Eye Disease -"Diabetic eye disease" is a general term for a group of eye problems that can result from having type 1 or type 2 diabetes, including diabetic retinopathy, cataracts and glaucoma. Often there are no symptoms in the early stages of diabetic eye disease, so it is important that you don't wait for symptoms to appear before having a comprehensive eye exam. Early detection and treatment of diabetic eye disease will dramatically reduce your chances of sustaining permanent vision loss.

10) Glaucoma -Often called "the silent thief of sight," glaucoma is an increase in the intraocular pressure of the eyes, which causes damage to the optic nerve with no signs or symptoms in the early stages of the disease. If left untreated, glaucoma can lead to a decrease in peripheral vision and eventually blindness. While there is no cure for glaucoma, there are medications and surgery available that can help halt further vision loss. Early detection and regular eye exams are vital to slowing the progress of the disease.

11) Macular Degeneration -Macular degeneration is a chronic, progressive disease that gradually destroys sharp central vision due to a deterioration of the macula, a tiny spot in the central portion of your retina comprised of millions of light-sensing cells. Because it is so commonly associated with aging, it is also known as age-related macular degeneration (AMD). There are two forms of AMD called "dry," most common and with no known treatment, and "wet," less common and treated with laser procedures. Genetic testing is now available to help identify those most likely to develop "wet" macular degeneration. In most cases, reversing damage caused by AMD is not possible, but supplements, protection from sunlight, eating a balanced diet and quitting smoking can reduce the risk and progression of macular degeneration. For suggestions, speak with your local optometrist.

12) Astigmatism -
13) Hyperopia (Farsightedness)
14) Myopia (Nearsightedness)
15) Presbyopia (Aging Eyes) -Our client practices offer a number of cutting-edge vision care services and products. Our practices have the experience and equipment necessary to diagnose and often treat the eye diseases detailed above, as well as many other eye diseases.


For Patient's

If you have any questions or concerns about eye strain and what to do about it, we’re happy to help! We don’t want any of our patients suffering in silence, so don’t hesitate to ask us about eye strain or any other vision-related problem you might have.

Digital Eye Strain
If you spend hours a day in front of a computer screen, and have experienced anything along the lines of: eyes burning, neck aching, vision blurring, or head throbbing, you might have a common problem known as eyestrain/Digital Eye Strain.

Symptoms of Digital Eye Strain

With something this common, it’s important to be able to recognize the symptoms so that you can begin to take the right precautions to prevent and minimize eye strain. Bright screens are often the culprits behind:

• Eyes feeling either very watery or unusually dry
• A burning or itching sensation in the eyes
• Blurry or double vision
• Frequent headaches and soreness in the neck, shoulders, or back
• Increased sensitivity to light
• Trouble concentrating
• Difficulty keeping your eyes open

Symptoms like these can result in a major productivity drain (as high as 20%!), which is especially bad for those who do most or all of their work on a computer. So what can we do to protect our eyes from our screens?

Regular Eye Exams Make a Difference
Keeping up with regular eye exams is about more than just being able to update your glasses prescription regularly. The eye doctor can also check for the early indicators of retinal detachment and treat it before it can worsen and lead to vision loss. In between eye exams, keep protecting your eyes with UV-blocking sunglasses and keep them strong with healthy food and an active lifestyle!

A lot changes as we get older, including our eyesight.
As we age, we should be vigilant in watching for signs of age-related vision loss, because early diagnosis is critical in preventing many sight-threatening conditions from progressing. We want our patients to be as informed as possible so that they can minimize their risks. We also want them to be prepared for the more benign ways their eyesight can change!


Helping Your Vision Stay Healthy

Between those regular eye exams, there’s a lot we can do in our daily lives to safeguard our eyesight. Wear UV-blocking sunglasses outside (no matter what season it is), stay active, eat healthy foods, and avoid harmful habits like smoking. Following these tips will greatly reduce a lot of the risk factors for eye diseases, let alone improving your overall health!

Another good tip to follow for short-term vision benefits if you spend a lot of time looking at screens throughout the day is the 20-20-20 rule. Every 20 minutes, give your eyes a break from the screen by focusing on something at least 20 feet away for about 20 seconds. This can help a lot with eye strain!


EYEWEAR

People have been using vision-correcting tools of some kind since as early as 60 A.D. Roman philosopher Seneca from that time used a glass globe of water to magnify the text he was reading, and Emperor Nero couldn’t see gladiator fights very well without his magnifying emerald. We’re glad we don’t have to rely on these kinds of imprecise and antiquated tools, but it’s fascinating to see how vision correction has gotten to where it is now, and the long, winding road it took to get there.

Corrective Lenses Over the Centuries
It would take almost a thousand years after those emeralds and globes of water until lenses would actually be manufactured to help with reading. It was monks in 10th century Europe who came up with the idea to polish domes of transparent quartz, which they called “reading stones.” They needed these to be able to see clearly enough to do the fine details in their illuminated calligraphy.

After that, it took another couple of centuries before anyone had the idea to put a couple of reading stones into frames so that they would be wearable. A Florentian named Salvino D’Armati was credited with the invention of spectacles, but scholars are skeptical that this man actually existed, so the identity of the real inventor is unknown.


Glasses: From Status Symbol to Commonplace
The earliest wearable spectacles were only made out of very expensive materials, like crystal. This put them out of reach of most people, but they became a status symbol for the wealthy. Once the printing press came along in 1440, literacy rates skyrocketed, and with them, so did the demand for reading glasses. The preferred material switched from crystal to glass, making them much more affordable.

Over-the-Ear Frames and Prescription Lenses
Even then, glasses weren’t like they are today. They were designed to perch on the nose or be held while in use, and there was only so much glass blowers could do to customize lens thickness and shape for people with different refractive errors. Glasses only became hands-free in the 1700s with the addition of the temples to extend over the ears. Benjamin Franklin contributed by inventing bifocals, and around the same time, hinges were introduced so that glasses could be folded and stored in a pocket. Eye doctors were getting better and better at tailoring lenses to patients’ specific needs, with cylindrical spectacles coming along in the early 1800s to correct astigmatism, but it wasn’t until 1862 that Dutch eye doctor Herman Snellen invented the “big E” chart that standardized vision correction.

Modern Glasses
Nowadays, we get to enjoy the benefits of two thousand years of improvements to vision correction. We can choose from a range of materials depending on our individual situations, we can have protective lens coatings to make them even more effective and durable, and we can choose from countless frame styles and colors to suit our personalities. If you’re in need of a new pair of glasses, just let us know and we can help!

Not all vision problems can be corrected by wearing glasses or contacts.

When vision is so poor that corrective lenses aren’t enough, we call it visual impairment. It’s important for everyone to be aware of the vision problems that fall into this umbrella, because whether they affect us personally or not, we should be informed and ready to help those who do struggle with them.

Eyeglass Lenses
Every Simplyfyd Care Doctor office offers an array of eyeglass lenses to meet individual vision requirements. Some of the available lenses are: High index lenses that are thinner and lighter than ordinary lenses Progressive addition lenses that correct for near, middle and distance vision without the lines of bifocal or trifocal lenses Transitions® lenses that are clear indoors but darken automatically when you go outdoors Polycarbonate lenses that are our first choice for children because of their impact resistance and light weight Polarized lenses that reduce glare and provide protection from harmful UV rays Eyeglass frames do more than hold lenses. The right frames can enhance your features and make a statement about your style. Of course, it's always better to try frames on in person. Because each Simplyfyd Care office client is independently owned and operated, frame collections will vary by location.

Ready to try out a new style?
Find the contact lenses that fit your lifestyle. Choosing the right contacts for your eyes is essential for clear vision and comfort. Below are some of the brands our member practices offer. Because Simplyfyd Care office client is independently owned and operated, contact lens collections will vary by location.

Eye Drops & Solutions
Protect your eyes with the right eye drops and solution. Your Simplyfyd Care doctor will help you obtain the appropriate eye drops and contact solution for your eyes. Below are some of the brands our member practices offer. Because each Simplyfyd Care office is independently owned and operated, eye drops and solutions will vary by location.

Solutions
The proper care of contact lenses requires solutions that clean, refresh and store the lenses. The first and most important purpose of any solution is to thoroughly disinfect your lenses. Most solutions also offer the added benefit of enhancing the comfort of contact lenses by removing protein deposits and helping the lenses retain moisture during wear. Not all solutions are compatible with all people or contact lenses, so be sure to use the solution and follow the care regimen specified by your Simplyfyd Care doctor.
