Spring Eye Allergies in Oakville, Ontario | Dr. Fallon Patel and Associates

Spring is in the air. But along with the beauty of the blooming flowers and budding trees, comes allergy season. The high pollen count and allergens floating in the fresh spring air can certainly wreak havoc on the comfort level of those suffering from allergies, causing an otherwise nature-loving individual to seek respite indoors. Your eyes are often one of the areas affected most by allergens which can leave them red, itchy and watery, making you feel achy and tired. Speak to your optometrist about allergy medications or eye drops that can relieve symptoms.

Smart contacts: The future of the wearable you won't even see

Ok, so we may not have flying cars yet, but scientists are developing something just as exciting – smart contacts! Smart contacts help detect if there's a problem in the bloodstream, too much stress, and other health risks. Read the article to find out more.

Material science and our understanding of the human eye have come a long....

What does the 20-20-2 rule mean for children? It can help slow down myopia progression! Get at least 20 seconds rest after every 20 minutes of near work (on the computer or else). Spend 2 hours outdoor every day. In the Netherlands the rule has been introduced across television.

Myopia isn’t just inconvenient, it’s also dangerous. Rapidly progressing myopia in children increases the risk of developing serious eye conditions later in life, such as cataracts, retinal detachments, macular degeneration, and glaucoma. Fortunately, myopia management can reduce this risk.

Dry-Eye Tip for cold weather: Humidify your environment. At night use a bedside humidifier and during the day add a humidifier to your furnace.

Though many wouldn’t place “smoking” and “myopia” in the same sentence, the harmful effects they have on vision are comparable, as children with rapidly progressing myopia have a similar risk of developing eye disease later in life as smokers do.
