January is Glaucoma Awareness Month

New Technology, providing a higher level of care for our patients




Our practice is committed to protecting your eye health with the most advanced technology available, and we are excited to announce that our comprehensive eye exam now includes the iWellnessExam.

The iWellnessExam is state-of-the-art technology that lets our doctors see beneath the surface of your retina, where signs of disease first appear. Traditional eye exams and retinal photography do not provide this level of detail.

Did you know…

  • Sight-threatening eye diseases often have no outward signs or symptoms in the early stages.
  • State-of-the-art technology can help your doctor see early signs of these diseases.
  • Early detection and treatment of eye disease may reduce your risk of vision loss

Regular iWellness exams can help your doctor detect common eye diseases:

  • Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Glaucoma
  • Macular Degeneration


The iWellnessExam is fast, easy, and comfortable for patients of all ages and gives your doctor valuable information about the health of your eyes and your most precious gift – your sight.

“I’m in Heaven with These UltraHealth lenses” 

“I have been working for my company in-house for the past year due to struggles with my vision, but I really missed the freedom that came from being out on the road. UltraHealth lenses are so good I am going to ask to go back to my previous role as a truck driver. I’m in heaven with these lenses.”

“I can see a baseball in the air with my UltraHealth Lenses!”

“In June I got my very own pair of UltraHealth contact lenses and they are amazing!  They increase my regular vision by three times. I can do a lot more things now that I can see better. I can see a baseball in the air, cars coming down the street, the time on the TV and I can also see a lot more things that I couldn’t see before thanks to UltraHealth contact lenses.

It’s a blessing to be able to see considering the condition my eyes are in. I’m glad someone came up with UltraHealth lenses because there are a lot of people out there with their eyes in the same condition as mine. I just hope whoever needs them like I did should be introduced to UltraHealth contact lenses.”

Tips to avoid eye strain at the computer

Ten Tips to avoid eye strain at the computer

  1. Get a comprehensive eye exam– make sure to tell your doctor how many hours you spend at the computer
  2. Use proper lighting– eliminate any exterior lighting that may reflect on your screen and overhead fluorescent lights
  3. Minimize glare-invest in an anti-glare screen for your monitor, and anti-reflective treatments for your eye glasses
  4. Upgrade your display– replace your old CRT monitor with a flat panel LCD
  5. Adjust your computer display settings-adjust brightness, size and color temperature to reduce amount of blue light emitted
  6. Blink more often– staring can cause dry eye related issues
  7. Relax your eyes– look away from your computer every 20 minutes at something at least 20 feet away for 20 seconds
  8. Take frequent breaks– this is helpful with full body discomfort also
  9. Modify your work station– evaluate your ergonomics
  10. Consider computer eye wear– special computer glasses can be made to make the most of your vision and your computer distance

Crizal Prevencia lenses help protect your eyes from harmful Blue-Violet light in everyday surroundings including sunlight, indoor lighting, and most digital screens.



CompuClear™ lenses are an excellent second pair to compliment the primary pair of progressive lenses. CompuClear™ lenses provide relief from visual fatigue caused by focusing on objects, such as computers, that are 1 to 3 feet away for extended periods of time.

CompuClear™ lenses are not just for computer use. Recommend CompuClear™ lenses for any activity where the wearer spends a long period of time using the intermediate zone.

They provide larger intermediate area greatly reduces pain and discomfort. The included No-Glare treatment eliminates eye fatigue experienced from glare caused by overhead lights or poor liighting conditions.

January is Glaucoma Awareness Month

Did you know glaucoma can cause complete blindness?

It is estimated that 3 million Americans have glaucoma…. but only half of them know it.


What are risk factors for glaucoma:

Age– the older we get the higher the risk

Ethnicity– African Americans and people of Asian decent have the highest risk

Family History– Do you have a sibling or parent with glaucoma?

Medical conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure can increase your risk

– History of eye injury or Steroid use

Everyone over the age of 45 should have an annual dilated eye exam to check for this. Glaucoma if caught early enough can prevent vision loss and be very treatable.

Is it over one year since your last eye exam?


Family Vacation Spottings

We took a week off in October and went on a driving family vacation.  All along our journey I kept finding hidden eyeglasses, or optometry related things, so of course I have to take pictures of them. It has taken me this long to post them 🙂

My first sighting was in the Atlanta Centennial Olympic Park, in the play ground I saw this Braille board. I thought it was pretty neat.







Next we were in Asheville, North Carolina and I saw this clothing store, the name seems like it should have been an optical, didn’t quite fit to me…








We ate dinner at the Mellow Mushroom in Asheville, and this big painted mixer was right behind our table.








We were driving around Asheville looking for a park for the girls to get some energy out and passed by another Vision Source office, forgive the terrible picture, I took it from the car, I was just so surprised to see it. It is the office of Dr. Michelle Reames







Our last stop was in Savannah Georgia, we were walking along the riverfront and I found this on the side of the walk..







On the other side of the walk, I saw one of the back doors to a restaurant called One Eyed Lizzies, and thought it was picture appropriate..









We had a great week, and found some kinds funny things along the way, I don’t usually post  things like this on the blog, but thought it would be fun to share a little of our vacation with everyone.
