Dr. Douglas Clark answers frequently asked questions:

Q. Why is my vision going bad once I turned 50?
A. Around age 40-50, we all started to suffer from an age-related condition known as presbyopia. This is a natural part of the aging process of the eye, and can easily be corrected with glasses or contact lenses.
Q. Can kids wear contact lenses?
A. Yes they can! We always want to make sure that each child is responsible enough to handle contact lenses with proper care, however, contact lenses can be a great option for kids involved in sports or kids with significant amounts of near-sightedness, far-sightedness, or astigmatism.
Q. Should I wear sunglasses during the winter?
A. Absolutely!  Ultra-violet (UV) rays are present and harmful whether it’s cloudy out or sunny!  While we all know that UV rays can cause damage to the skin, UV exposure can also cause damage to several important parts of the eyes and can lead to problems such as early onset cataracts and macular degeneration later in life.
