One of the most common questions I am routinely asked is, “What is a lazy eye”. This is a commonly used term and people use it interchangeably for two different conditions. The actual terminology is either amblyopia or strabismus.
Every now and then we get a note from a patient that makes us smile so much that we want to share it with all of you. Here is a real unsolicited email we recently received addressed to Uptown Eye Care’s Dr Gregory and Staff…
This Uptown Eye Care Reviews email came in the other day from one of our patients. It was so sweet that we had to post it and share with all of you. We love hearing feedback like this from our patients!
Uptown Eye Care, in partnership with the Minnesota Optometric Association (MOA), is proud to be participating in Pre-K Eye Exam Day this August. The goal of Pre-K Eye Exam Day is to let families know that good vision is essential to learning, and every child needs to have a comprehensive eye exam before entering school.
Students spend more than 75 percent of school time doing intense, visual work less than a foot from their eyes, but not all students’ vision can handle that intense workload. Thus, vision is an often overlooked component of learning and reading problems. Here is a fun workshop that will give you practical tools to help children who are having trouble with learning.
According to the American Public Health Association, 25% of students in grades K-6 have visual problems that are serious enough to hinder learning. Early detection of problems greatly increases the chances of successful rehabilitation.
Uptown Eye Care’s Dr. Mary Gregory will be speaking on vision related issues at local Minnesota schools in the coming months. If you would like to schedule Dr. Mary Gregory to speak at your school please contact us.
Dr. Mary Gregory joins several other volunteer eye doctors at the Children’s Healthy Eyes event, hosted by the Minnesota Optometric Association (MOA) and the Science Museum of Minnesota.
