Each year, thousands of children start school without ever having an eye exam. Parent often believe that their child will let them know that they cannot see well, but children are rarely able to tell that they have poor vision because they have nothing to compare it to. That's why we recommend that all children have their first eye exam at 6 months old, again at 2-3 years old, and every year after that. In Ontario, yearly eye exams for children are covered by OHIP until they turn 20 years old. Click the link in our bio to book your child their OHIP-insured eye exam. Children born in 2014 are eligible only until June 30, 2019 to participate in the Eye See...Eye Learn® program for the 2018-19 school year. . . . #FamilyEyeCareTimmins #Optometrist #FindItInTimmins #EyeExams #EyeSeeEyeLearn #Glasses #ContactLenses #Sunglasses #EyeCare #EyeDoctor #GetEyeWise #EyeHealth #VisionCare #SeeClearly #Optical #OptometryLife #PicOfTheDay #Children #KidsHealth #ChildrensVisionMonth #CVM18 #EyeSeeEyeLearn

Made sure everybody had their #sunglasses on while we enjoyed the weather outside today!! Landry didn’t love it 😂 he will eventually learn 😎 I am a huge sunglasses advocate, especially for kids!! We protect our own eyes, we need to protect their delicate little eyes too. Fun fact: Kids with blue eyes are more at risk for sun damage then those with brown eyes ... so make sure you encourage them to wear their sunglasses and keep them on too! ☺️ #uvprotection #fall #alberta #sun #outside #freshair #powerwashing #kidsinglasses #momofboys #boymama #optometrist #optometrylife #eyes360 #okotoks

A new study from Japan adds to the growing evidence that fibrates and statins may be helpful in preventing diabetic retinopathy, and they also appear to reduce the need for treatment in patients with pre-existing retinopathy. The need for photocoagulation and vitrectomy in this study was decreased by 35% and 52% respectively in patients who were on lipid-lowering medication.⠀ .⠀ Learn more about managing diabetic retinopathy in the new KMK Update 2018!

Costume contacts are NOT one size fits all! A poor fit can cause serious eye damage, including: Scratches on the Cornea, Corneal Infection, Conjunctivitis, decreased vision, blindness, and more. An Optometrist or Ophthalmologist must measure each eye to properly fit the lenses and evaluate how your eye responds to contact lens wear. Unfortunately, many places illegally sell decorative contact lenses to consumers without valid prescriptions for as little as $20. Don't be fooled. ⠀ ⠀ #Halloween #TheMoreYouKnow #Costume #CostumeContacts #Contacts #ColoredContacts #WeLoveEyes #ContactLenses #ContactLens #Pumpkin #XO #Moody #Optician #OpticianLife #Optometry #Optometrist #OptometryLife #FDA #Illegal #Blindness #Cornea #AsSeenInColumbus #L4L #Sunday #SmartShopper #UpperArlington #Health #614 #Columbus #Ohio

What am I? I am bilateral. There’s a gradual decrease in vision. No pain. No discharge. You should also look for a family history. #whatami #optometrylife #optometrist #ophthalmology #cornea #granularcornealdystrophy #slitlampphotography #slitlampexamination #vision #eyes #eyedisease #optometrystudent
This procedure is called gonioscopy. It involves placing a device with titled mirrors onto the surface of the eye. The mirrors are tilted at an angle that allows the examiner to view the important structures of the anterior chamber angle! The anterior chamber angle drains the aqueous humor out of the eye. If it is clogged, blocked, recessed, etc- the aqueous humor won't be able to properly drain. Plug the drain, and the pressure inside of the eye builds up! Increased pressure can cause conditions like corneal edema and glaucoma. - #optometry #nature #animals #optometryschool #optometrystudent #optometrylife #glasses #science #optometrygirl #eyes #fashion #refraction #sight #eyehealth #eyeballs #gonio #gonioscopy #3mirror #anteriorchamber #aqueous #aqueoushumor

It’s not about studying to do well anymore. It’s about understanding the information. Understanding the information well enough to be able to apply what we’re learning and be the best doctors we can be. Only about 2 months into school, but ~4 short years shy from being a doctor. Confidence is key!! It’s all about building a foundation. #midterms #optometryschool #optometrystudent

My niece recently turned one! For her birthday, I gifted her a subscription to @elephantbooksforkids. It's been the gift that keeps giving throughout the year! Every month, three board books are delivered to her doorstep. The books are curated by an expert panel... no wonder she loves them. It’s such a great gift. Educational too 🙌🏼! #notanad #kidsbooks #giftideas #sfblogger #eyedoctor
Old-wives tales about eyes and vision have been passed down from generation to generation.

When the weekend’s in sight 👀 👓 #workweek : Lots of young ODs work weekends when they’re starting out. In some optometry schools clinic is straight M-F, while others have you working Sundays too! At PCO we are usually scheduled for one to two Saturday shifts per semester. As a Third Year our semester is a little heavier, averaging one weekend shift per month. : Our weekend ‘assignments’ vary so we aren’t always scheduled for Primary Care. Saturday I’ll either be scheduled for Emergency or Visual Fields and Imaging. We’ll see what the weekend brings! : #optometry #optometrylife #womeninoptometry #womeninmedicine #stem #ophthalmology #oftalmologia #doctor #optometrist #eyedoctor #eyecare #vision #glasses #eyewear #optician #optical #privatepractice #eyes #frames #gradschool #optometrystudent #studentdoctor : If you made it to the end of this post, tell me: are you working this weekend or are you working FOR the weekend? 😎
People can be so cruel. But, times have changed. Eyeglasses are "In" and kids want glasses now. So, watch out for those malingerers!
Clinically Significant Macular Edema (CSME) is seen when one of the following occurs: 1) Retinal thickening at or within 500 microns of center of macula. 2) Hard exudates at or within 500 microns of the center of the macula with adjacent retinal thickening. 3) Retinal thickening of at least 1 disc diameter in size which is within 1 disc diameter from the center of the macula. . . . . . . . ______________________________________________________ #optometry #optometrist #vision #optometrystudent #optom #cataracts #glaucoma #eyesight #ophthalmologist #ophthalmology #dryeye #oftalmologia #eyedoctor #retina #eyewear #optical #glasses #cornea #optician #IOL #opticianlife #cataratas #optic #diabetes #macularedema #optometrylife #eyecare #eye #medstudent #frames

I took this photo over the summer and thought its desaturation, glare, lack of contrast, and overall blur made it look artsy.
