MYTHS & FACTS ABOUT EYE HEALTH
THERE ARE MANY MYTHS OUT THERE ABOUT WHAT IS GOOD AND BAD FOR YOUR EYES.
Myth: Sitting too Close to the TV is Bad for Your Eyes
Fact: Although parents have been saying this since television first found its way into our living rooms, there is no evidence that plunking down right in front of the tv damages your eyes. The American Academy of Ophthalmology says that kids can actually focus up close without eyestrain better than adults, so they often develop the habit of sitting right in front of the television or holding reading material close to their eyes. Although it will not harm their eyes, it may be an indication that they are indeed nearsighted. Only an exam with an eye care specialist can determine this for sure.
Early signs of age-related eye diseases, including cataract, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration can begin in midlife but often do not noticeably affect the vision until later. So it’s important to get a baseline comprehensive eye exam at age 40, even for people who have no symptoms or known risk factors. Your ophthalmologist will recommend follow-up exams based on your family history and the results of the baseline exam.
By age 65, one in three Americans will have a vision-impairing eye disease. The earlier these are discovered and treatment begins, the better the chance of preserving good vision.
People who are diabetic or pre-diabetic need to have regular eye exams and work with their doctors to control weight and blood sugar as well as blood pressure and cholesterol.
Was sent to San Antonio first by my local Dr but best in SA backed up several months but one of the best Dr in SA suggested I try Doctor Ravi who he considered very good and top notch so we tried, we own a house on the island and live in Laredo so this was very convenient since we dont own a house in SA. Doctor was much much better than we expected. Dr Ravi is the best Doctor I have seen so dropped my Laredo doc and switched. I have glaucoma. I am very glad I was referred to Dr Krishan.
