A patient recently asked me if reading on paper or on screens is better for your eyesight.


This has become a very popular topic given all the new technology and different ways to find and enjoy reading material.


While both options have their benefits, it comes down to personal preference. What works best for you may not work best for someone else. We recommend whichever method you prefer, you take frequent breaks to avoid straining your eyes. As a tip, remember to follow the 20/20/20 rule.


Please read some interesting facts about the two options in our post and let us know which method you prefer: reading printed books or reading on your kindle, tablet, computer, or phone?

Do you know that color blindness affects 1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women in the world?

Color blindness occurs when you cannot see colors in the way most people do. Often, color blindness makes it difficult to distinguish colors such as blue, yellow, red, and green.

The image shared is one of the Ishihara cards. These cards are part of a test used to measure color vision deficits. During this test, your doctor will ask you to look at a series of cards with dots of different colors and sizes. If you cannot distinguish some colors, those shapes will be hard to see.

Please, share with us the numbers you see!

If you have any questions, please contact us and we will be happy to help.

A day to create awareness and share the importance of wearing UV protective sunglasses to preserve your eye health and vision.


Today we are sharing some of the benefits of wearing sunglasses (besides looking and feeling like a movie star)

  • Sunglasses protect your eyes from the sun’s UV rays, which can be dangerous even on cloudy days.

  • They can protect you against skin cancer, cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.

  • They help you see better.

  • Sunglasses keep your eyes safe from elements such as sand, wind, dust, and snow.

  • They can help you heal and recover better after having an eye procedure such as LASIK, PKR, and cataract surgery.



It is up to you to pick the color, shape, or style of your sunglasses. Just make sure they have 100% UVA and UVB Protection.
