What exactly does this mean for your child’s screen time? Your own television watching and computer usage as a child was nothing compared to the current world, wherein screens are everywhere. From the tablet that keeps them occupied during appointments to the iPads being issued by schools to help with homework, kids are spending hours every day staring at screens. While moderate use of a phone, computer, or tablet aren’t shown to directly affect vision, there are other side-effects you should be aware of.
To everything there is a season – Except for protecting your eyes, which is a year-round job!
Your eyes just can’t seem to catch a break! No matter the season, your eyes seem to be under attack. In spring, itchy irritants and allergies keep you aware of your eyes. In the summer, the constant attack of blinding sun and chlorinated water are the one-two punch du jour. Fall brings harvest mold, dust, and seasonal allergies to the surface.
If this year’s resolutions included cleaning up, organizing, and getting your home or work space in order, there’s a very good chance 2019 will really be your year!

When we think of aging, our first thoughts snap to graying hairs and wrinkled skin, but every part of our body ages at a different pace. Many people are seeing their first gray hairs in their 20s and their first crow’s feet before 30, long before we would begin to consider them “elderly”.
At ilumin, we take pride in the work each member of our team has done to further advancements in vision and health. The research done by our new addition has been incredibly exciting, and we can’t wait to have him on our team.
