  • Ocular allergies

    Ocular allergies

    If your eyes are itching, tearing, burning, or red you may have eye allergies, or what doctors call allergic conjunctivitis. Allergies develop when the body's immune system becomes sensitized to something such as pollen, dust, pet dander, or mold. These are called allergens, and there are many potential allergens in our environment that can come into contact with our eyes. With allergic conjunctivitis, allergens cause the eyes and surrounding tissues to become inflamed and uncomfortable. These symptoms may occur alone, or in combination with general allergic symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, or a stuffy nose. There are two main types of eye allergies: Seasonal and Chronic. Seasonal eye allergies are the most common form and occur in the spring or fall when the amount of pollen in the air is very high. Chronic eye allergies are less common, but potentially more severe than seasonal allergies. This form is non-seasonal and occurs continuously throughout the year. Chronic eye allergies may be triggered by dust, mold, pets or other allergens that are present year-round. While ocular allergies may be an ongoing condition, the right treatment from your eye care professional can reduce or eliminate symptoms.

  • Meibomian Gland Dysfunction

    Meibomian Gland Dysfunction - Eye Checkup London ON

    Healthy tears consist of a precise mixture of oil, water, and mucus. Meibomian gland dysfunction, also called MGD, is a condition where the meibomian glands do not produce the proper quality or quantity of oil in the outer layer of the tear film. In normal tears, the layer of oil produced by the meibomian glands seals the tear film and helps prevent tears from evaporating too quickly. In MGD, the glands become blocked and do not produce normal oil, due to inflammation. Inflammation can be related to problems of the lid, contact lenses, hormones, or even incomplete or infrequent blinking. When the glands do not produce enough quality oil, tears evaporate more quickly than normal, resulting in dry eye syndrome. MGD is the leading cause of dry eye. While MGD is not generally sight-threatening, it can have a negative impact on quality of life if left untreated. Symptoms of MGD can include dryness, scratchiness, a burning sensation and even problems with visual acuity. MGD can also lead to chalazia and infections of the lid margins, which can be painful and unsightly for patients. Lastly, for patients who wear contact lenses, MGD can make wearing lenses very difficult. MGD does not usually go away on its own, and requires treatment and follow up examinations by an eye care professional.

  • What is nearsightedness?

    Author: Mao Eye Care |

    What is nearsightedness?

    Myopia, or “nearsightedness” or “shortsightedness,” as most of us refer to it, is an eye condition in which you can view objects up close clearly, but things farther away may appear blurry.

    This condition is fairly common and many people who have it don’t detect it immediately, as all objects in view aren’t blurry. Reading a book or a menu may appear fine. But the sign in the distance…? It may lack visual clarity.

    Causes of nearsightedness

    Myopia is usually tied to genetics.

    If you are nearsighted, pay particular attention to early signs of progressive myopia in your children. Having their eyes tested regularly is important, as common nearsightedness usually appears early in life. Many children with myopia develop it at a young age, with it worsening each year until they reach their early twenties.

    Myopia management

    If you’ve been wearing glasses or contacts for a while in order to treat myopia, you’re probably pretty comfortable with them. Even though you can see well, it’s still important to visit your doctor routinely. Myopia does not progress as rapidly in adulthood, making it difficult to notice any changes in your vision. However, myopia increases your risk for other eye conditions such as early cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and macular degeneration. Routine eye appointments are important to monitor your eye health and make sure your prescription adjusts to any change in your vision.

  • Clarity and sharpness of your vision

    Author: Mao Eye Care |

    post.jpg

    The shape of your eyes plays an important role in the clarity and sharpness of your vision. Your eye’s ability to focus light precisely on the retina depends on the shape of your cornea, the flexibility of your lens, and the length of your eye. A refractive error occurs when these conditions are not perfectly aligned, resulting in blurry vision at one or more distances. One of the most common refractive errors is myopia, or nearsightedness. Myopia occurs when the eye is too long, the cornea is too curved, or a combination of the two. This results in light coming into focus before reaching the back of the eye, causing blurry distance vision. Other refractive errors include hyperopia, or farsightedness, where the eye is too short, or cornea curved too little; presbyopia, which is the loss of lens flexibility with age; and astigmatism, where the cornea is shaped irregularly. Refractive Surgery, Prescription glasses and contacts correct your refractive error by adjusting the point of focus back onto the retina, resulting in clearer vision. The type of refractive error and the degree of severity determine which lens type and strength are used to compensate for the error. To get the best possible vision, your eye doctor can find the cause of your blurry vision, and offer the best corrective option for you. Over time, your eye’s shape may change, so it is important to see your doctor annually to maintain the clearest possible vision. Schedule your next eye exam today, to see a clearer tomorrow.

    When most of us see the sun rise, we call it the beginning of a beautiful day, but it's what we don't see, that we all need to guard against: the sun's ultra-violet rays. Throughout the year, just about everyone is exposed to these harmful, invisible, ultra-violet - or UV rays. Whether you are indoors, or outdoors, a child or an adult, exposure to the sun's UV rays can cause serious long-term damage to your eyes. Just as you should protect your skin from the sun's UV rays using sunscreen, you should protect your eyes with UV-filtering sunglass lenses.

    Does your child have myopia? Myopia, or nearsightedness, is when your child can see near objects clearly, but has difficulty seeing objects at a distance. Myopia can be caused by the shape of the eye’s cornea, or when the eye grows too long. While myopia is a common refractive error among children, many parents are unaware that myopia can worsen as children grow, impacting their learning and development. While the only option for treating myopia used to be glasses or regular contact lenses, now there are a variety of treatments available that may slow this condition’s progression. The most common treatment options work to prevent the eye from continuing to overgrow. These include prescription eye drops, multifocal glasses or contacts, or a therapy called orthokeratology, which are contact lenses worn at night that temporarily reshape the cornea for clear vision the following day. How do these special contacts and glasses work differently than regular lenses? Regular glasses and contacts only focus central light rays, which causes peripheral light rays to focus behind the eye’s retina, which is thought to stimulate eye growth. Orthokeratology and multifocal lenses correct the central light rays while also focusing peripheral light rays in front of the retina. This is thought to prevent the eye from continuing to grow. The myopia management treatment you choose depends on your child's unique vision needs. Please talk to us today to find out what treatment is best for your child.
