There are many factors that can produce eye strain. One of the biggest is computer use. Staring at a screen regularly can cause eye strain or make strain that's already there much worse. This doesn't mean you have to stop using computers. There are small habits you can change that make it much easier to look at a screen for hours on end. Chances are you'll need to adopt more than one of them to see an improvement. Remember that a vision check-up with an optometrist is the best way to tackle any potential health or recurring eye strain problems.



Men often have unique issues in the health of their eyesight. It's important to know what these are. Men actually process visual information differently than women. This can lead to various issues that may need correction and treatment.

What foods actually help our vision? Is it a myth that carrots are good for our eyesight? The best foods for eyesight are high in particular nutrients or vitamins. A diet that's full of healthy foods for our eyes won't give you superhuman vision or cure eye conditions, but it can help our eyes' overall health. That can have a big impact down the road.
