My first time visiting this office. From my very first phone call till the ordering of my glasses was very professional. I found them to be very accommodating from start to finish. I was taken care of by a beautiful, kind, very patient assistant by the name of Blanca. Dr Thiara was amazing. I have definitely found a new eye Dr. Thank-you for making feel so comfortable.

Q: My eyes are always burning and tired, what is causing this and what can I do about it?
A: Tired, burning, and irritated eyes are signs of dry eye syndrome, a very common condition. Eye dryness is often due to a decrease in the oil production in our eyelid glands, which causes the tears to evaporate too quickly. Certain medications and health issues can also contribute to dryness. While there is no true cure for dry eye, many treatments are available. Our eye doctors customize the treatments for each person and their specific condition. Look to our Dry Eye Page to learn more!

Q: Is there such a thing as too much screen time?
A: Yes, unfortunately while electronics make life better they can also cause a lot of stress on the eyes. For children it can result in focusing issues and an increase in near-sightedness (when people need glasses to see far away). Our Vision Therapy and Myopia Control page have more information on that. For adults, dryness and eye fatigue are the most common symptoms. At your appointment, you can learn about the options we have for increased screen time and discuss what works best for you.

Q: Why can’t I read or see things up close like I used to?
A: Most of the time, this is a natural process that occurs when you have enough birthdays. Changes in the lens inside the eye make it harder to focus on things up-close. This is why you will see many people wearing reading glasses, as the glasses magnify the size of whatever you need so it is more comfortable to see. Even if you have never had an eye exam, it is not too late to start. Learn more at your appointment and find out what options work best for you.

Q: Why look at my eyes regularly? I still see fine.
A: While most people don’t notice their vision changing from year to year, there are many different parts of the eye that are constantly changing. There are also many health conditions, such as diabetes, that can cause problems inside the eye that a person will not notice until it is too late. We rely on our eyes a lot: to drive, to look at our phones, to read this website. Make sure you are taking care of your eyes with yearly exams!
