“Taking a snooze”

Friday, February 25th, 2011 
   

We all have heard alot about snoring and sleep apnea recently.  While reading a professional eye care journal I saw an article about sleep apnea.  As an avid chainsaw snorer, it caught my attention.  Little did I know that sleep apnea may contribute to eye problems.  Recently a group of doctors examined whether sleep apnea may be associated with retinal vein occlusions.  Retinal vein occlusions are a relatively common cause of vision loss that involves a vein in the back of the eye becoming blocked.  The authors findings suggest that sleep apnea may be a risk factor for vein occlusions.  Just one more reason to get that snoring checked out!

Come check out all of our new brands in our optical shop. We now have new lines of Vera Bradley, Vera Wang, Silhouette, Kensie, Wildflower, Calvin Klein, Oakley, and Costa.

It is also a great time to make an appointment and check out our great deals on iLasik and all of our other lasik options. Lasik and data recovery houston blocks are replicated across several data nodes, so the failure of one server may not necessarily corrupt a file. a great pair of sunglasses make the perfect match. Once you have lasik you would need to have a great protective pair of sunglasses.

Some of our sunglasses lines include Oakley, Costa, Vera Bradley, Vera Wang and our brand NEW line of Coach in our Tifton location.

We would be happy to answer and help you with any questions you may have. So come check out all of our great deals at South Georgia Eye Partners.

Survey Says……

Monday, February 14th, 2011 
   

Many Americans Miss the Mark on Eye Exams.

A recent survey of 1,000 adults shows that nearly half — 47% — worry more about losing their sight than about losing their memory and their ability to walk or hear. But almost 30% indicated that they don’t get their eyes checked. Many Americans are unaware of the warning signs of eye diseases and conditions that could cause damage and blindness if not detected and treated soon enough.

It’s necessary to see an optometrist or ophthalmologist regularly in order to keep your eyes in good working order. Diseases and conditions of the eye can often be treated successfully if caught early. Eye professionals recommend that everyone see an eye doctor at least every two years. Many people should see their eye doctors more often. According to the American Optometric Association and the American Academy of Ophthalmology, factors such as age, eye health and family health history determine how often one should have a complete eye exam.

Call today to schedule your annual eye exam.

I see mama’s face….

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010 
   

I transferred over to our Optical department a a few months ago. Being an optician and fitting eyeglasses is my passion. My very first day I had the  tearful pleasure of fitting  a two year old little girl with her brand new glasses.  She had never worn corrective lens before and after just a few seconds planned on that being her last. However, as I began to speak to  her and point out colors and shapes she began to realize she could see.  The highlight of my day was seeing this small child grab her moms face with a suprised look and exclaim mama! That was a wonderful experience to be apart of. What a reminder of just how precious the gift of sight really is!  Annie Morgan

Winter is coming and so are dry eye symptoms. Dry eyes effect millions of people
every year and can be treated many ways. Artifical tears and prescription strength

When the eye is dry, your bodies back up mechanism will cause tearing to help
prevent further damage to the cornea. Other symptoms include light sensitivity,
red eyes, blurred vision, and foreign body sensations. A person with dry eyes
should use artificial tears throughout the day and warm compresses for 10 minutes.
People with severe dry eyes may need prescription strength tears. Other treatment
can be offered. If you are suffering from dry eyes and cannot control your symptoms,
