So many school age kids have vision challenges. Experts assert that early detection of a child's eyesight issue is critical because, if ignored, it could cause serious vision damage.

Routine eye exams inspect the health of your visual system like a physical exam checks your overall body condition. Even if your vision is clear and your eyes feel fine, eye exams are needed at every stage of life.

A 2nd pair can do a lot for your visual needs. Adding polarization to your lenses provides outdoor UV protection, while blue light coating helps computer users reduce eye strain. Everyone could use a second pair of eyewear, Prairie Vision aims to make that choice easier.

Q&A | What is Dry Eye Syndrome

How do I know if I have Dry Eye?

Dry eye can cause quite a few symptoms, anything from the eyes actually feeling dry to the eyes watering often, or having a burning, itchy, or irritated feeling.

One of the most common symptoms is the eyes feeling gritty or like something is in your eye. Most people will often experience blurred vision since the tears, which comprise the outermost surface of the eye, are unstable.

Is there anything I can do to prevent DES?

Dry eye is multi-factorial, and each person’s dry eye is unique to them. To help prevent dry eye, make sure to consume 8 to 10 glasses of water per day to avoid dehydration. Some nutritional supplements, such as fish oil and flaxseed oil, can contribute to a more stable tear layer.

Remember to blink regularly and take breaks often when on a computer, cell phone or when watching television. During times of the year when there is less humidity, a humidifier might be helpful to provide more moisture in the air.
