Dry eye discomfort can be a nagging source of distraction. It’s certainly not the kind of agony you experience with classic migraines, root canals, kidney stones or fractured ribs, but ocular surface disease (OCD) can make an eight-hour work day seem like twelve on the chain gang. And, interestingly, dry eye management has similarities to […]
I’m always amazed how so many people, usually adults, will tolerate radical inconvenience to avoid the benefit of glasses. Most are embarrassed by reading and driving glasses while insisting their sunglasses are a must.
REALLY? And why? Exactly what is this elusion all about?
It’s my experience that many refuse the help of glasses while touting the […]
I was born and raised on a West Kansas farm – the Dust Bowl.
When something broke, you fixed it. I was never a great mechanic, but by age 12 if I wasn’t going to school I was helping on the farm, be it feeding cattle, working summer follow, cutting wheat, fixing fences or packing wheel […]
As Thanksgiving rolls around so does the thought of turkeys. No – not those proverbial in-laws that show up around the holidays purely to contribute their unsolicited opinions. You know. The ones you call “turkeys.” Not those.
I’m talking about the bird that adorns the Thanksgiving table. But in fact, I’m even deviating from the turkeys […]
I love my binoculars – almost as much as my F-150 or maybe even my wife. Please don’t tell her I said that!
If you’re around a bunch of hunters don’t mention binoculars. Hunters are experts on everything hunting or fishing. Binoculars and rifle scopes are topics hunters afford no common sense.
Sound patronizing? It ain’t. I’m […]
Have you ever had your nose pads replaced on your eyeglasses? Should the optical facility charge for them? It’s a good question.
At Family Eye Clinic we can get nose pads for $0.10/pair – but not good silicone ones, which are the best.
Silicone breathes, so it doesn’t cause skin necrosis like PVC or plexiglass pads. Silicon […]
Yesterday you finished morning exercise, a bad cup of coffee, a shower, and combing the rat’s nest. Your right eye was red, and so it remains – not just the redness of witching hour bookkeeping. No. Fresh blood on the white of your eye – the stuff of Doctor Strange, and speaking of doctors you […]
Business is about profit. Without it, those involved realize no pleasure. If just living expenses are met but there is no time or money for pleasure the average human’s participation will dwindle.
Yet “profit” has become a dirty word by those who feel some make too much money – the haves working at the expense of […]
My radio ads direct you to this site concerning the eclipse and eye health. My comments concerning the upcoming eclipse are about viewing it in and around Pullman, Washington. Those viewing elsewhere should get their information from experts within those areas. You can find good information at these sites: NASA (the best), […]
Dear Dr. David,
I’ve tried contact lenses several times. I always develop an allergy to them. Are there any contact lenses which do not cause allergies?
All contact lenses are hypoallergenic*, because all contact lens materials are inert and immunologically neutral. So, in short, contact lenses materials do […]
My brother’s away at college. His contacts feel fine, and I see great in them. I can easily order new ones online. What’s wrong with that?
Well, Lil’ Bro, what if the power is wrong?
Your vision will either blur and/or fatigue. Although uncomfortable, neither causes […]
