Tips and answers to your eyecare questions

Check Yearly See Clearly

With your vision, it’s important to regularly get your eyes checked even if nothing seems immediately wrong at the time. A lot of underlying eye diseases (i.e. glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts) do not show any symptoms in their early stages. It’s often too late to repair the damage to the vision after the disease has taken over. Be preventative and take charge of your vision by seeing your local eyecare professional on an annual basis.

Get Down with Dilation

The eye is very similar to a camera. You adjust the lens on the camera to create a focused image. This is very similar to your eye doctor adjusting your glasses or contact lens prescription. This can often be done without dilation, but a camera doesn’t work well if the film is damaged. Your retina is comparable to the film in the camera. It can only be fully evaluated through dilation. For this reason, dilation is important not only individuals that have glasses, but also those who don’t. Ask your doctor about dilation during your next visit!

Eat Your Greens

Leafy greens like spinach and kale contain a very important ingredient called LUTEIN. Lutein is found in the macula, the small area of the retina responsible for central vision. It helps keep the eyes safe from oxidative stress.

Kids Too!

Children should first be examined around 6 months of age to ensure their eyes are developing correctly. Lazy eye (amblyopia), strabismus, pediatric eye disease and vision developmental delays can all be detected early on in the child’s life. Treatment such as vision therapy can be implemented during the critical phase in the child’s life to help improve certain visual dysfunctions.

What our Clients are saying

This is the best eyecare center I have been to! They are incredibly sweet and really care about you. I mentioned in passing that I work in the software industry, so they recommended lenses that would help reduce eye fatigue from sitting in front of a computer all day. They are expanding, so there was construction going on, but the staff went above and beyond to try and make an uncomfortable situation comfortable for everyone. Overall, great experience and it is the first eye doctor and optometrist that I feel comfortable returning to see again.

What our Clients are saying

I had a previous Eye Dr. office not treat me that well, and my experience at Twenty 20 has been amazing. They really care and are kind and thorough at all times. Everyone is very sweet and every time I’ve needed anything they are very accommodating and helpful. I highly recommend this office, the staff, and the Eye Doctors!
