While suffering from red, itching, and/or irritated eyes, many of us never hesitate to reach for “Redness Relief Eye Drops.” These drops (the most popular brands being Visine, Clear Eyes, B&L advanced redness relief) are known for temporary relief of minor eye redness or discomfort caused by minor irritants. But what are the ingredients in these drops? And how often should these drops be used without consulting your Eye Associates Physician? Sydney L Tyson, MD, MPH (President and Medical Director of Eye Associates) sends a public service announcement to local communities as his practice has recently been seeing many cases of patients abusing these over-the-counter medications.
It’s a new year – a fresh start. What a perfect opportunity to put yourself first and make plans to do something that could literally change the way you see the world. It’s a new year. Why not give yourself the gift of new vision? If you’re in your 40s or 50s, chances are you’ve had to turn to reading glasses or contact lenses to see up close. It’s incredibly irritating, right? – Especially if you never needed vision correction before. So this year, why not make your vision a priority? Make 2018 the year you discover the KAMRA® inlay and see yourself living without the constant frustrations of reading glasses.
During the holidays approaching the new year, the last thing most families are thinking about is getting themselves to their annual doctor visits. Family, school, and work obligations keep you from considering important things like health care benefits covered by your insurance.

Monday, August 21, 2017, will go down in history in the United States as the day the Great American Solar Eclipse stretched from coast to coast, leaving millions in awe as they looked directly up at the sun…
With summer in full swing, the days are longer, the sun hotter, and the threat from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays, greater. In honor of UV Safety Month, Eye Associates and the American Academy of Ophthalmology warns that excess sun exposure can put you at risk of serious short-term and long-term eye problems. This is true for young and old, year-round. Prevention is simple. Wear sunglasses that block ultraviolet radiation. But how do you know if your sunglasses are up to the task of protecting your family’s sight?
Studies show there is a gender gap in eye disease. Women are more likely than men to suffer from sight-threatening conditions such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), cataracts, and glaucoma. In support of Healthy Vision Month in May, Eye Associates reminds women to make vision a top priority.
On-the-job safety goes well beyond avoiding slips, falls, and heavy lifting. Caring for your eyes should be a high priority and part of an overall workplace wellness routine. This is important because each day, about 2,000 U.S. workers sustain a job-related eye injury that requires medical treatment. However, 90 percent of these accidents can be avoided by wearing eye protection. As part of an ongoing effort to stress the importance of workplace eye wellness, Eye Associates is encouraging the public to do right by their eyes and wear appropriate eye protection.
In a few weeks we’ll all be seeing various shades of green and it has nothing to do with a strange medical condition! On this day of the year everyone, no matter what their heritage is, turns Irish!

Seniors are at heightened risk for age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness among older Americans. The disease damages central vision, limiting a person’s ability to read and recognize faces. Approximately 2.1 million Americans had AMD as of 2010. This number is expected to double to more than 5.4 million by 2050. Meanwhile, fewer people are aware of the disease compared to other eye diseases such as cataracts and glaucoma.rnTo help raise awareness of AMD as Valentine’s Day approaches next month, Eye Associates is reminding seniors that their eyes need love, too. There are steps they can take to take better care of their eyes and protect themselves from AMD-related blindness. rn
