Famous words said by every parent EVER...... (amongst other things) *
Every time I diagnose a new kid with myopia, the parent will always admonish the child " I told you not to sit so close to the TV" *
*In this instance sitting close to the TV doesn't cause myopia. Most near sighted people find it easier to see close up and hence are driven to sit close to the TV for clear vision without glasses.
*On the flip side in this day of handheld devices, prolonged usage of phones, tablets etc have been researched to increase the intensity of myopia *

Mira cómo disminuye progresivamente el campo de visión en la imagen del vídeo. Así es cómo ve un #paciente
, primera causa de ceguera irreversible en el mundo. Se va perdiendo la visión periférica de forma lenta y progresiva, siendo posible ver solo por la parte central (visión de “túnel”) y algunas manchas borrosas. Se trata de una enfermedad degenerativa, silenciosa, que va minando el nervio óptico provocando la pérdida progresiva de las fibras nerviosas de la retina y cambios en el aspecto del nervio óptico. Todo ello sin que el paciente apenas lo perciba, sobre todo en las primeras fases de la enfermedad. Por eso, es muy importante acudir a revisiones oftalmológicas periódicas para detectar a tiempo esta enfermedad. #CuidamosdetuSaludOcular #IOFVega #oftalmología
This past Saturday, BCEC was honored to provide no-cost eye exams and glasses for a group of orphans from Kenya who are visiting Maryville as part of a dance/vocal group. For all of these kids and their chaperones, this was their first ever eye exam! These kids were incredible to get to know, and it was so much fun to take care of them. We are so blessed as a nation to have options and access to healthcare. Please never take that for granted! We know you do have choices in Maryville for eye care, and we want to say thank you to all of our BCEC patients for supporting our practice and allowing us to do things like serving these kids 🙏 And a big thank you to Drs. Chantel & Will, Aislynn, Nikki, Rachel, Bethany, Ashlee and Chelsey for helping make it all possible by using their passions for helping others ❤️ #BCEC #EyeCare #EyeWear #ThankYouToOurPatients
We are always excited to hear from our patients about their experiences and outcomes post treatment… even more satisfied to be able to change their day to day life with better vision.⠀

The holiday season is upon us and with that comes a lot of traveling. Traveling to visit family or friends or even taking a vacation away, we would like to share some travel eye care tips with you.
*If you wear glasses, bring a second pair along in case you lose or damage your glasses while away.
*Bring sunglasses with you regardless of where you are going. UV rays are found at the beach, in the mountains, and at grandma’s house!
*Pack eye drops for dry eyes and/or for allergies.
*Pack sanitizer wipes to wipe hands to prevent infections or irritations of the eyes.
*If you wear contacts, bring extra pairs with you and a back-up pair of glasses. If you will be on a long flight, take your contacts out and use your glasses. Airline air is very dry and can be irritating with your contacts in.
*Have a copy of your prescription available just in case you need a new pair of glasses or contacts while you are away.
*If you plan on swimming, pack some goggles especially if you wear contacts. Goggles also protect your eyes from the chlorine used in pools and bacteria that can be present in natural swimming environments.
We would like to take this moment to wish everyone a Happy, Healthy, & Safe Holiday season! If you have any concerns or would like to schedule an appointment, please call at 609.652.1010

Christmas is almost here, and all the children are anxiously waiting for the gifts on their wish list 🎁 Perhaps an electronic device is there at the top? Exciting! Although electronic devices such as iPads, laptops, and smartphones are certainly great gift ideas, it is important to always keep your child's eye health in mind to help reduce strain, focusing problems, headaches and other possible eye conditions.
Here's a few tips to help:
✅ set a time limit concerning how much time your child can be using a device.
✅ remember the 20-20-20 rule. Every 20 minutes have them look at something 20ft away for 20 seconds!
✅ if your child is already wearing glasses, consider an anti-reflective coating
We are always here for you and your child. If you have any questions or would like more eye safety tips, feel free to give us a call :). 709-466-3221
Tis the season of getting innovative with your holiday shopping budget! Also a good reminder that benefits expire at the end of the month! 😉 If you haven't used yours yet, it should help with holiday budgeting and get you seeing that shopping list well 😉

Virtual reality (VR) headsets are becoming increasingly mainstream. Their ability to create an immersive experience and transport us to another place makes them fascinating. However, little is known about the effects of this technology on our eyes and eyesight.
Did you ever wonder about possible negative effects, especially when used for long periods of time. These concerns are real, because eye strain is likely whenever one focuses on an object for an extended period of time, like when we watch a long movie or stare at our computer or smartphone all day.
Most VR headset manufacturers have put in place warnings for children. This is important because a child’s visual system continues to develop throughout childhood. Extended exposure to the awkward visual posture created by VR headsets can alter the development of focusing, tracking, and depth perception.
