What would you do if you woke up one morning and couldn’t see?  I’m not saying you’d be blind, but what if you woke up with terribly blurred vision?  Similar to waking up with a scratchy throat due to overuse or mistreatment, waking up with irritated eyes can also be the result of overuse or mistreatment.

What would you do if you woke up one morning and couldn’t see?  I’m not saying you’d be blind, but what if you woke up with terribly blurred vision?  Similar to waking up with a scratchy throat due to overuse or mistreatment, waking up with irritated eyes can also be the result of overuse or mistreatment.

Often times a rash or an itchy, dry, or sore throat encourages us to go to our medical doctor or local clinic to get checked out.  Heaven forbid you have strep or some other contagious disease!  But what happens when you get a contagious disease or rash in your eye?  Unfortunately, people tend to ignore signs of these eye issues, but Indiana eye care doctors say they can be just as contagious or dangerous.

Don’t take a chance.  Taking care of your eyes, which implies avoiding strong sunlight and refraining from rubbing or poking at your eyes, is the key to good eye health.  Also, not smoking and wearing sun protection, like Purifier® polarized lenses in your sunglasses, can prevent future development of cataracts or other eye diseases that can affect the way you see the world.

If you are experiencing symptoms of potential eye problems, infections, or disease, don’t wait!  Schedule your appointment with Dr. Tavel today.  Even if your eyes seem fine, but you haven’t had your eyes checked in more than two years, schedule an appointment today.  You can also conveniently schedule an appointment online.  Detecting developing eye problems early is the key to a faster cure.
