Organized by the American Optometric Association, Save Your Vision Month’s goal is to increase eye care awareness and encourage people to have annual eye exams. Don’t wait until there’s a problem; many eye conditions have no symptoms and are only detected and treated after a comprehensive eye exam identifies the problem.
For 2018, Save Your Vision Month is specifically promoting the awareness of eye strain. The average American spends seven hours or more a day reading and u…sing digital devices; eye strain is a common result. Symptoms include:
• Difficulty focusing
• Dry, scratchy, or watery eyes
• Blurred or double vision
• Increased sensitivity to light
• Headache and brow pain
• Neck and back ache
If you are dealing with any of these symptoms, Dr. Tabak can discuss your specific needs with you and recommend various lenses to alleviate eye strain.
