Back to school time is here! Where did the summer go? With all of the back to school preparations (school supplies, school clothes, etc.) did you remember to get your children in for a comprehensive eye examination? Children's eye examinations are so important because 80% of what we learn is visual and recent research indicates that certain types of refractive errors (myopia, astigmatism, hyperopia) can have an impact on literacy.

Well Boise, can you believe it is August already? August in national Children's Eye Health and Safety Month. August is a perfect time of year for Children's Eye Health and Safety Month because it gets children's eyes ready for the next school year! Back to school season seems to be weighted towards getting new school supplies and school clothes when it needs to include making sure children can see their school work and are happy and healthy.

Alright Boise, it is that time of year again, Fourth of July! This is the time of year to celebrate our nation's independence. Many American's partake in this holiday by blowing things up.

We are all aware of the importance eating healthy, regular exercise, annual physicals and twice-yearly dental cleaning, but what about eye exams? There's more to a comprehensive eye exam than just getting an updated glasses or contact lens prescription. A comprehensive eye exam evaluates the function and health of the eyes, and can even detect systemic conditions and disease before symptoms are noticed.

It is finally May, the weather is starting to warm up, the flowers are blooming, the birds are singing and we Idahoans are excited to be outdoors! May really is a wonderful time of year! It almost feels like a rejuvenating time after a winter that was trying for many and the rain showers (and spring cleaning) of spring.

We've all been there. You wake up in the morning to find that your eyes look a little red, they feel irritated as if there's something in your eye, lights seem a bit brighter than usual, and if you wear contact lenses they aren't as comfortable as usual.
