Vitamins for Eye Health

January 09, 2015

Vitamins are an important part of maintaining your overall health, but they are also important for keeping your eyes in good shape.

There are three main vitamins that doctors believe are the most beneficial for your eyes: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. Vitamin A is found in beef and poultry liver, eggs, butter, kale cantaloupe, and spinach.

January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month

January 02, 2015

In the United States, approximately 120,000 people are blind from glaucoma, accounting for 9% to 12% of all cases of blindness. If you have glaucoma, don’t keep it a secret. Let your family members know. 

Glaucoma is a condition in which a build-up of pressure inside the eye, referred to as “intraocular pressure,” causes damage to the optic nerve, which transmits images to the brain. Prolonged damage to the optic nerve from high eye pressure can lead to irreversible vision loss or blindness.

My overall experience was excellent. I liked how I could have my pre-ops in Tucson, since there is only one Surgery Center. Joe in Tucson was wonderful. He called me back promptly and alleviated my concerns about the surgery. Overall, a great experience.

I had no idea you had such a selection of great eyewear. The optometrist helped me find the pair that fit my face, my personality and highlighted my eyes – which, I’ve been told, are one of my best features!
