Welcome to Dr. T. Jung Hung and Associates, Optometrists in Orillia and Alliston
Eyes are important indicators of overall health, and comprehensive eye care goes beyond a prescription for glasses or contact lenses. At Dr. T. Jung Hung and Associates, Optometrists, we take the time to get to know you, your eye care history, and your vision needs. Our optometrists, Dr. T. Jung Hung and Dr. Sarah Chong provide the expert care, advice, options, and follow up you need whether you are a new patient or an existing one.
COMPREHENSIVE EYE EXAM
A large part of the examination is finding out what the patient is experiencing and determining the type of dry eye causing the symptoms. We examine the surface of the eye under a microscope to look at the quantity and the quality of the tear film. Additionally, we examine the eyelids and the glands inside the eyelids to insure they are healthy.
There are a wide range of treatments ranging from over the counter products to specialty laser procedures. Many times using artificial tears and vitamin supplements can help boost the tear film. There are prescription eye drops that can aid in tear production as well as laser procedures for patients with more advanced dry eye.
Of course – stay hydrated and making sure you consume enough water each day. Additionally, take breaks from your computer and smart phone. I recommend the 20/20/20 Rule – take a 20 second break every 20 minutes and look 20 feet away and blink your eyes. Finally, wearing sunglasses is critical to protecting the surface of the eye and the eyelids from UV exposure.
