During the first twelve years of our lives as much as eighty percent of learning is accomplished through our vision. Yet research has shown that one in five children have an undetected vision problem.

As an optician, hardly a day goes by where someone comes into my test room, complaining of blurred vison caused by a cataract developing in their eye(s). Cataracts are common especially if you’re over 65 but they can develop at a younger age too.

The summer sunshine is here and everyone is wearing sunglasses. We are spoilt for choice when deciding which sunglasses suits our face best. A well fitting frame with stylish design is always a priority but what about the lenses in the sunglass frame? Do you go for regular sunglass lenses or ‘polarised’ lenses?

Patients often come to our clinic and say “my eyes are watering a lot recently”. Some say “it can be embarrassing when my eyes water so much that people think I’m crying!” Believe it or not, in most cases, the reason this happens is because the eye is dry which is caused by a lack of tears. The condition is called Dry Eye and is a progressive and chronic condition that can occur at any age. Dry eye is a commonly encountered complaint, with about 38% of the general population affected.Interestingly, it is more common in women.

There are lots of good reasons to soak up some sunshine rays this summer. It’s well documented that it helps our body clock, our mood, and our health. So it’s no surprise that a certain amount of UV exposure is very important in the production of natural vitamin D, but too much UV can be a serious health risk.
