After calling other eye dr.s for an appt for my 12-year-old daughter I came across Acworth Family Eyecare. Not only were they professional on the phone but everyone in the office was personable and pleasant. I’m a dental hygienist so being in a dr.s office where everyone is kind is huge to me. So kuddos to AFE and I will definitely be going back. 🙂
Are some people more prone to having Dry Eyes than others?
Yes. Generally, those that suffer from allergies, or have systemic inflammatory diseases like arthritis and sjogrens’, or those who use the computer or digital devices often and even contact lens wearers tend to be more susceptible to dry eye symptoms.
What causes myopia?
Myopia is caused by a combination of environmental factors and heredity. Studies show that if we can move the focal point in front of the mid-peripheral retina we can slow the progression of myopia. The increased use of cell phones and computers, as well as less time outdoors, is probably a contributing factor.
How do I know Vision Therapy is right for my child?
If your child displays symptoms of strabismus (eye turn), amblyopia (“lazy eye”), skipping words or lines while reading, using a finger while reading, blurry near vision, double vision, eyestrain and/or eye fatigue, it is suggested your child has a complete eye exam from a Doctor of Optometry.
