If you see two images instead of one, then you’re likely experiencing double vision. The images may appear side by side, stacked on top of each other, or both. This vision problem, which is also known as diplopia, can disrupt your balance, make you feel nauseous, and get in the way of daily tasks such as reading.
Driving is arguably the most popular mode of transportation in America. In fact, there are over 200 million licensed drivers in the United States. From embarking on a long road trip to running a few errands, driving is a big part of our daily lives.
It’s no secret that driving is a very visual activity. As a driver, you have to be able to see clearly to keep yourself and others safe on the road. That’s why the DMV performs a vision test when you receive or renew your license. Blade-free, all-laser LASIK can improve your driving experience.
So, you’ve decided that you want to enjoy day-to-day life without the need for corrective eyewear. You want to wake up in the morning without fumbling around for your glasses, and you want to fall asleep at night without remembering to take your contacts out.
While blade-free, all-laser LASIK is an exciting and life-changing procedure, the cost is initially perceived as a barrier by some people. The truth is, the alternatives can actually cost you more money in the end. LASIK deals and discounts at other eye care centers may seem inviting, but the hidden costs can add up.
The term LASIK is generally used to describe any form of laser eye surgery that is performed to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Today, it would be hard to find someone who hasn’t heard of LASIK, because the procedure is a safe and effective way to improve visual acuity and eliminate the need for glasses and contacts.
Watch Dr. Reed share his own personal story about hating the glasses he had to wear as a child, which led him to follow the developments of laser vision correction throughout the late 1980s and early 90s. When the technology and technique reached a level that could correct his severe astigmatism, Dr. Reed could undergo the procedure that has allowed him to see clearly without glasses for over twenty years.
Recently, Nintendo has been promoting a new game package for its handheld DS system. The package, called Flash Focus, is a series of exercises for your eyes, ostensibly to stave off vision loss that occurs as we age. Very popular in Japan, Nintendo is hoping to target a different sector of the American market with this product. The question is: if you want better vision, can eye exercises help?
