My Eye Muscles Hurt!

How does light effect you? You may squint in the sun, but do you ever squint in front of your computer screen? By the end of the day, many of us feel as though our eye muscles have spent a full day at the gym...exhausted, sore, and achy.

Seeing our South Delta eye doctors for regular eye checkups is the best way to make sure your eyes are receiving the care they need. It is also an opportunity for education and a time to talk to our optometrists at Tsawwassen Optometry Clinic about your tired eyes.

Aside from prescribing glasses, Dr. Kirby, Dr. Hansen & Dr. DeVuono can help you in many other ways to combat eye strain. They have educated themselves and their staff to provide you with the best in health care.

It is no secret that screen time has increased as a society, causing a plethora of issues. So if you are wondering if you are alone and frustrated with your exhausted, sore, and achy eyes, think again. HEV (High Energy Visible light) is a real problem these days, and your eye care professionals are here to help. From Johnson and Johnson’s Acuvue Oasys with Transitions* contact lens to ZEISS’ Duravision BlueProtect UV Coating*, we hear you! You are not alone, and there are ways to help soothe your eyes. Because let’s face it, we go home and stretch after our workouts at the gym... so why not treat your eyes with the same respect too? Appreciate them... they are working out all day every day, enabling you to take in the world around you.
