Q: What causes myopia?
A: Myopia is caused by a combination of environmental factors and heredity. Studies show that if we can move the focal point in front of the mid peripheral retina we can slow the progression of myopia. The increased use of cell phones and computers, as well as less time outdoors is probably a contributing factor.
Q: Are some people more prone to having Dry Eyes than others?
A: People who suffer from allergies, or have systemic inflammatory diseases like arthritis and Sjogren's tend to be more susceptible to developing dry eye syndrome. Certain medications cause dry eyes as a side effect. Aging and being a woman, are both risk factors for dry eye syndrome too.
Q: What's the best way to select a good pair of eyeglasses? Can I get a top designer brand and get the best protection for my eyes?
A: Tom Ford is one of the most sought-after and innovative styles in our dispensary. We appreciate the quality of the frame. I'm very particular when it comes to eyewear comfort, and Tom Ford frames have been a pleasant surprise. They say each frame is handmade and that it takes 100 days to assemble each pair! Our clients say they love how light Tom Fords feel on their face, and they offer a very clean, distinctive look, without much brand-advertising on the frame itself.
