The sun can seem to be at its most powerful during the summer months, but that does not mean that such rays are not harmful all year round. No matter what the temperature may be, the sun is always giving off UV rays that can be harmful to your skin as well as your eyes. Prolonged exposure to these harmful UV rays let off by the sun can cause some complications and can even effect your vision for prolonged periods of time, not just when there is glare. But protecting your eyes from glare is important too. If you are driving, sailing, or operating machinery, the sun glare can temporarily blind you and cause you to lose control. Sun glare can be particularly dangerous when on water and around bright white snow due to the intensity of the sun’s reflection on the surface. In order to properly protect your eyes from this harm, you can visit us here at West U Vision for a protective pair of sunglasses. If you would like to have your prescription updated or simply have your eyes checked, our eye doctors, Dr. Christine Castillo and Dr. MH Rockhoff, are here to provide you with the proper screening and resulting prescription. From there, you can browse our Houston optical goods store to see which pair of frames you would like.

We offer a wide variety of styles and frames here at our Houston optical goods store. We even offer a number of designer names, such as Ray Ban, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbanna, Versace, Polo, Hugo Boss, Ralph Lauren, Nike Eyewear, Coach, Dior and many more. Visit West U Vision today to protect your eyes from the sun with a pair of prescription or non-prescription protected sunglasses.

Macular degeneration is an eye condition that causes vision loss. When you know the causes and symptoms of macular degeneration, you will be able to identify any signs early and seek evaluation and treatment from our Houston eye doctors, Christine Castillo, OD and MH Rockoff, OD. And early detection and treatment is the very best strategy to address any eye disease or problem. At West U Vision, our goal is to keep you seeing as well as possible all the time.

While the exact causes of macular degeneration are not known, there is a good chance that heredity plays a role. A pattern of running in families has been observed. Environment may also play a part in causing it, though no proof is currently available to support that theory. While the causes of macular degeneration may not be well understood, there are identifiable risk factors. The most prominent one is age. There is a tendency for macular degeneration to be more likely as you get older. Also, having lighter skin color and lighter eye color increases the likelihood of getting it. Women have higher risk than men do. Other risks include obesity, smoking, too much exposure to sunlight, sleep apnea, and taking certain medications. Our Houston eye doctors, as part of a comprehensive eye exam, will ask you about your heredity and discuss those concerns that might increase your risk of macular degeneration.

Among the symptoms that are associated with macular degeneration are blurred vision, loss of vision either near of far even if only in one eye, blind spots, seeing objects differently colored in one eye versus the other or differently sized in each eye, or seeing straight lines as being bent. The presence of any of those signs does not mean you should panic, but you should most definitely call us to schedule an appointment with our Houston eye doctors as soon as possible. With a thorough checkup, it can be determined if you are dealing with macular degeneration or not. If so, while macular degeneration cannot be cured or reversed, there are ways to ensure that it does not prevent you from living your life to the fullest.
