Welcome. My name is Ariana and I work as a medical assistant at an army base. My main job is to make sure that there are no hidden health risks for our seemingly fit army personnel. One of the biggest issues I uncover is eyesight problems. I have discovered that a lot of people think that there is no need to visit an optometrist unless their eyes are sore or vision is blurry. This myth can be found in the army too. In the course of my work, I have learnt that many eye problems have no symptoms for a long time. I am always encouraging family and friends to go for annual eye checks. I have become so passionate about this issue that I started this blog to explain how optometrists can help you keep the best vision possible. Please scan through my entries. Enjoy.

Early intervention to eye problems prevents severe repercussions such as partial or total blindness. In some instances, surgery is the only corrective measure to save a patient's eyes. Thanks to laser technology, patients do not have to go through the traditional, invasive eye surgery procedures. However, some patients still find eye surgery a bit nerve-wracking. Nonetheless, it does not have to be the case since doctors do their best to prepare patients with adequate information about the procedure.
