We Can Help With Eye Strain and Headaches
Staring at computer, tablet, or mobile screens for hours at a time is a normal part of our lives in the 21st century. Unfortunately, eye problems associated with this activity are also on the rise. Even if you have never had eye problems before, you may have noticed symptoms after too many hours of screen time. Signs include:
Blurry vision at far after work
Eye strain and discomfort
Dry, scratchy eyes
Neck and/or shoulder pain
Even if your symptoms are mild, they can worsen and cause other vision problems, like nearsightedness can mean a lifelong dependence on glasses to see far away. See Dr. Marran OD PhD before the symptoms become a permanent condition. Read more under the Control Nearsightedness Tab.
After you make your appointment, take these immediate actions:
The 20/20 RULE: After 20 minutes, look 20 feet away for 20 seconds.
The 2/20 RULE: After 2 hours, take 20 minutes. Go outside, hang out at the water cooler!
Or By Appointment
“I have seen so much growth in Kayla. She appears much less frustrated and seems more able to cope with frustrating situations. Last year she could not connect the dots to make a triangle to now being able to draw and microscope and it's parts from the board. She enjoys reading now and is doing adult connect the dot books. We used to spend hours on homework which was often not done correctly--to going to school all day and then math tutoring for an hour with no problems. She still struggles with reading and spelling, but on her last report card got all A's and 1B. She feels that the vision therapy has helped her be more successful in life (softball, school, etc). My personnel feeling is that Kayla's vision problems created a feeling of chaos or loss of control---she struggled with trying to control her life in a chaotic situation. Now she can make sense of the world visually, she is less angry, less stressed and feels more successful in life. Thank you for everything!”
