Today, almost every type of work involves using a computer. Many workers spend a good part of their day at the computer screen, and this can cause a number of eye and vision problems. Your Raleigh eye doctor can help with computer eye safety tips for reducing discomfort from constant computer use.


Spring means it’s finally time to hit the track, trails, or waterways for all the activities you’ve been missing all winter. While you’re taking in all that fresh air, remember to take care of your eyes. Extended exposure to UV rays can damage your eyes and cause cataracts, macular degeneration, and more. Below are the best sunglasses on the market that can keep your eyes safe this season.


The technology used in the laser vision correction procedure, LASIK, has improved dramatically in the almost two decades it has been available in the U.S.  The improvements in technology have helped shape the long-term results realized by LASIK patients. Once uncertain, experts now agree that the procedure has little negative effect and is now safer and more beneficial than ever before. 


What if you could achieve sharper reading vision without the use of reading glasses? A relatively new implant, called Kamra, suggests just that. How will it work? This donut-shaped device developed by AcuFocus, Inc., which went on sale this time last year, is implanted in just one eye and is then used to read.


Double vision is also known as diplopia. It can be caused by eye diseases, eyelid disorders or a serious medical condition. It can be frustrating to deal with double vision. Fortunately, there are many tips to help double vision.


Your eyes are one of the most delicate organs in your body, and once they’re damaged, it is either difficult or impossible to restore your vision to what it once was! That’s why Raleigh Eye Center encourages all our patients to take good care of your eyes this summer, as much as you do your skin. Here are some ways to protect your eyes all season long.


You may have heard of Latisse, a popular lash growth serum purported to lengthen, thicken, and darken eyelashes within 16 weeks of use. Since Latisse was introduced to the beauty market, many similar brands have cropped up, all claiming to provide the same benefits. However, Latisse has well documented side effects which can harm the eyes or eyelid tissue. In today’s optometry blog post, our Raleigh optometrist will explain the risks of Latisse and similar lash growth serums.


What causes ocular migraines? No one quite knows. At least, we don’t understand what exactly causes the brain to suddenly release inflammatory substances around the nerves and blood vessels. However, there are several prevailing “triggers” that many migraine sufferers seem to have in common. If you suffer from chronic ocular migraines, here are some stimuli to avoid.


When it comes to medical expenses, you might be one of a growing trend of patients who take advantage of a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) benefited to you by your employer. These FSA plans allow users to set aside a certain amount of money, pre-taxes, from each paycheck.


Computers may have made our working lives a whole lot easier, but they’ve wreaked havoc on our eyes. If you find yourself experiencing ocular migraines or other effects of blue light, try following these tips from our Raleigh optometrist.
