What - Educational Seminar - Light and Eye Damage

When - Saturday, September 30th, 2017

Where - 20/20 Eye Care. 925 Rathburn Rd. E. Mississauga. ON. L4W 4C3

Why - The phrase "glued to the screen" has become common in any conversations. Parents often report /complaint they can't keep their children away from their ipad/computer/TV/video games/phones etc. Working on the digital screens for an extended period of time, many complaint of red, itchy, tired, irritated eyes, however are unable to find the solution to this problem. Many will get to the "eye section" of the closest pharmacy/superstore and after a confused gaze, reach for the cheapest eye drops in hopes that this will resolve their eye issues. Needless to say, these drops provide little to no benefit and most often do not treat the underlying eye condition they are suffering with. This lecture will focus on "back to basics" principles on how to protect your eyes from the effects of light on the eyes. It will also focus on day-to-day routine that will promote better eye health and protection from glare, harmful effects of blue light and UV light. It will also focus on how the correct diet can aid to better eye and overall health.

Speaker - Dr. Ampreet Singh

We would like to cordially invite you to our second education series "An Eye to Health".

Eyes are the windows to your health. 20/20 Eye Care is dedicated to provide comprehensive compassionate care. Comprehensive eye examination (CEE) assesses ocular, visual and binocular system as well as eyeglass prescriptions. A CEE can help in detection of systemic conditions like Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Sjogrens Syndrome, Gastrointestinal Conditions like Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis and many more. At 20/20 Eye Care we differentiate ourselves with our continuing effort to give back to the community.

20/20 stands for perfection in vision, and 20/20 is our vision to provide quality care by enhancing the knowledgebase in eye health. We are launching our educational series, “An Eye to Health”. Bi-monthly, we will providing new seminars on eye health and eye diseases. These seminars are open to anyone who is eager to learn.

Our second seminar will be on Light and Eye Damage. As a practicing Eye Care provider, I often get asked “Can you advise our children to stay away from digital screens”, “Why are my eyes itchy, watery, tired after working on digital screens (computer, ipads etc), "how can we protect our eyes from eye strain caused by digital screens". At this seminar we will be discussing the damaging effects of light on your eyes. We will be discussing how to protect your eyes from the harmful blue light and UV light. We will also be having a one day No Tax sale on sunglasses as well as free blue light anti-glare coating on any orders for those who attend the seminar.
