What You Need to Know About Cataracts

Cataracts are a common vision issue that’s often related to aging. While you can develop cataracts as a side effect of an injury or eye condition, they most frequently occur as a result of getting older. Here’s what you should know about cataracts.

Why Are My Eyes Staying Red?

Virtually everyone experiences red eyes at some point in their lives. It’s a natural response to allergies, irritation, or simply overuse. It’s generally not a cause for concern — unless the redness lingers for more than a few days.

Choosing the right contact lenses isn’t so simple, and that’s a good thing because it means you can customize your lenses to your needs. Learn why getting proper medical guidance is critical, as well as the many options you have for optimal vision.
