South County Eye Care In Lake Forest, CA
Eyes are important indicators of overall health, and comprehensive eye care goes beyond a prescription for glasses or contact lenses. At South County Eye Care, we take the time to get to know you, your eye care history, and your vision needs. Our optometrists provide the expert care, advice, options, and follow up you need whether you are a new patient or an existing one.
Myopia, or nearsightedness, is an inability to focus on things in the distance. A recent 2009 study by the NIH concluded that the prevalence of myopia in the US has increased 66.4% in the 30 years from 1971 to the early 2000s.
Orthokeratology and multifocal contact lenses are two relatively new, effective ways to control the continued progression of nearsightedness. While they achieve the same goal, these methods work differently. Our eye doctors will meet with you to discuss the ideal solution.
Although many positive effects have resulted from the various devices in our everyday lives, a darker, more dangerous side exists to all of this progress and convenience. Blue light, also known as high energy visible light, is emitted by many of these electronics, and is a serious threat to eye health which was previously unknown and irrelevant in generations past.
