Patient Education

Education is part of our patient care

In addition to our award-winning services and patient care, we’re in the business of educating our patients on their personal eye health: the anatomy of the eye and how it works, signs and symptoms of eye diseases, and the many risks associated with the eye (for example, staring directly at the sun during a total solar eclipse).

Hyperopia, myopia, presbyopia...

The suffix -opia denotes a condition of sight or of the visual organs. But even that hint only gets you so far when understanding the technical jargon of the eye. We’ve compiled a list of words you may hear on your visit to the eye doctor, with definitions to make sense of it all.
