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.

Ophthalmologists can detect the presence of cataracts by taking a medical history and performing a comprehensive eye exam that includes an acuity test, a slit-lamp exam, and a retinal exam.

In the earliest stages of cataracts, a person may not notice changes in their visions or other symptoms. That is why annual exams are so important.

Note: Cataracts are more common than you might think. More than 24.4 million Americans over the age of 40 have been affected by cataracts. By the age of 80, more than half of Americans have experienced cataracts.
