When focusing on screens for long periods, we’re giving our eyes quite the workout. Try squatting in a sitting position for that long without a break! Not only that, we tend to blink less when focused on a task. All this leading to strain and eye discomfort.However, there’s an easy fix. Every twenty minutes, look […]
Low-Vision and ARMD February
February is Low-Vision and ARMD Awareness Month! To join in this month of awareness, we’re going to overview what low-vision means, then later on in the month we’re going take a look at a common example in particular: Age-Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD). To start us off– what many people would consider blindness is not actually […]
Back to School
It’s the start of the school year, a time both cherished and dreaded by parents and kids! No one wants their kids to be under-prepared! Paying attention in class all day can be difficult for the keenest of kids, but it can be even harder if kids can’t follow along because they can’t distinguish what’s […]
