    What Are Floaters?

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Eye floaters refer to small moving spots in your field of vision that do not generally interfere with sight. A number of individuals develop eye floaters due to age-related changes affecting the jelly-like substance inside the eyeball. Other instances of floaters may be the result of inflammation or infection of the layers of tissue at the back of the eye, injury, and diabetic retinopathy.

    In some cases, floaters may be a sign of a serious condition—such as bleeding within the eye, retinal detachment, retinal tear, or a tumor. For this reason, it is important to visit your optometrist if your eye floaters worsen over time, if your vision changes at the onset of floaters, if you experience flashes of light, or if you have eye pain when you develop floaters.

    For more information on floaters and your overall eye health, contact the Manhattan optometrists with 10/10 Optics at (888) 508-4018 today! You can also browse through our website to learn more about our eyeglasses.

    What Are the Most Common Misconceptions About Proper Eye Care?

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Your vision is one of your most important senses, and as such, protecting and caring for it should be an important consideration. Taking care of your eyes requires more than just an occasional visit to the optometrist, and as such, you may be looking for additional tips about eye care. But what advice is true and what wisdom is just an old wives’ tale? Read on for our overview of common eye care misconceptions.

    Myth: Wearing glasses will make your eyes weaker.
    If you already have poor vision and you supplement your eyesight with glasses or contacts, your eyes will naturally get weaker, right? Wrong. The eye is not a muscle that will weaken and atrophy due to lack of use. Rather, it is more like a camera lens that will not take clear pictures unless properly focused. Your eyeglasses will simply help your eyes to focus and see the way they are meant to. In the same vein, wearing glasses of the wrong prescription will not damage your eyes either. While they certainly won’t correct any vision problems, if you grab your friend’s glasses by accident, you need not worry that you’ll be doing permanent damage.

    Myth: Contact lenses which eventually “cure” vision problems.
    Contact lenses are impressive tools that can correct the way an individual sees while wearing them. However, there is no evidence to suggest that contact lenses will permanently improve the wearer’s vision or reverse eye damage already in place. As such, it is important to schedule regular visits with your optician to have your sight re-evaluated and your contact prescription adjusted as needed.

    Myth: Eating carrots will strengthen your eyes.
    While carrots are a great addition to your diet and are in fact full of vitamin A—a vitamin essential to sight—carrots are not essential to good vision. A well-balanced diet will provide enough vitamin A to cover any eyesight needs without requiring you to eat your weight in carrots.
