VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron EYE CARE ADVANCEMENTS Technological advancements improve our lives in a million different ways, from the ability to carry a world of information in our pockets to the capacity of using lasers to improve our vision. Every decade brings us new improvements, and that's especially true in medical fields such as optometry. Lasik surgery is, of course, a significant one, but even a simple eye exam has changed dramatically over the last few decades. Devices like "binocular indirect ophthalmoscopes," which examine the back of the eye, and aspheric lenses for patients with astigmatism have seen dramatic advancements in recent years. Recovery from cataract surgery once involved weeks of slow suture removal, but now, thanks to phacoemulsification, sutures are no longer required. As individuals, our bodies ages differently from each other. However, an abundance of evidence indicates that keeping yourself in good health as you age decreases the occurrence or effects of age-associated eye problems. When you need to schedule an eye exam for you or a family member, please contact SKOWRON EYE CARE. We've invested in the latest technology to make exam findings easier and more accurate for everyone from toddlers to seniors, often without the inconvenience of dilation. At Skowron eyecare, your 20/20 vision is our mission. P.S.. In the 1970s and 80s, contact lenses were hard (rigid) and could only be worn during the day. Impossible before 1986, some contact lenses can now be worn for days, even weeks at a time. EYE CARE SKOWRON 370 N.
