Amblyopia - "Lazy Eye"

AmblyopiaChildren with amblyopia, commonly known as "lazy eye," may have impaired ocular motor function. This can result in difficulties in activities for which sequential eye movements are important, such as reading. A new study conducted at the Retina Foundation of the Southwest determined that children with amblyopia read more slowly than children with normal vision or with strabismus alone. Their findings are published in the Journal of the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (AAPOS).

Does UV protection matter when choosing sunglasses?

sunglassesYes, ultraviolet (UV) eye protection matters! UV radiation from the sun can damage not only the skin of your eyelid but also the cornea, lens and other parts of the eye.

Studies have shown that accumulated ultraviolet exposure from the sun can heighten the risk of cataracts, a leading cause of blindness worldwide, growths such as pterygium, and several kinds of eye cancer. Even just a few hours of intense UV exposure can cause temporary blindness known as photokeratitis. While everyone can potentially suffer these conditions, children and people with light-coloured eyes should be especially careful since their eyes may be more susceptible to damage from the sun’s rays.

When you're choosing sunglasses, look for UV-protection details on product labels.
