Yep. It’s that time of year again. Sniffling, sneezing, coughing and pink eye abounds. It’s that last one that strikes fear into every mother and school teacher. Why do cases of pink eye, also known as conjunctivitis, increase as the temperatures decrease? Many doctors suspect that it’s due to spending more time indoors where people are in closer contact with each other. Read on to find out how to protect yourself and your family.
Welcome to my new blog! Return often to discover interesting stuff about your eyes. I became an optometrist for many reasons. The funnest (most fun?) reason is that the eye is one amazing organ! Yah sure, you could say the heart is also amazing. It beats over 100,000 times per day and can do so almost flawlessly for over 75 years. But it ain’t got nothing on the eyes. Trust me on this one.
Most of the posts will deal with:
- Amazing things the eye can do
- Optical illusions
- Important or interesting news regarding vision
- New technologies for vision
I will do my best to keep my postings interesting and understandable. This will be fun.
