Q & A On Dry Eyes

Dr. Cecil Answers Eyecare Questions

My child says it gets blurry when looking from his paper to the board at school, and getting him to read is difficult. Is there anything I can do to help?

Your child is not alone. While we have seen some children with focusing problems for many years, there is a huge increase in accommodative(focusing) problems with children today. Dr. Cecil has helped many children make reading easier and more enjoyable. Words shouldn’t move in and out of focus or move around when you are reading. Either with spec lenses with extra power for reading or multifocal contacts, we can make reading more comfortable for many children. There is no reason to make school and reading more difficult by straining and having the eyes work harder to see.

Dear Patients,

In light of the most recent CDC guidelines, we will not be open for routine care at this time.  We will remain open with limited hours for urgency/emergency care only.  This is for your safety, the safety of our staff, and the safety of our most vulnerable in the community.  We will do what we can to take care of your eye care needs, but we must adhere to the guidelines to the best of our ability.

If you have an eye emergency, please call our office at 502-349-2020.  We will then be able to schedule you for a Telehealth visit or an office visit, if an in person visit is deemed necessary.  Please be patient, as we have very limited staff during this time.

Also, we understand that you may have concerns regarding your visual needs.  We will do what we can to help you during this time.  We can take contact lens orders over the phone and ship them directly to your house.  In some circumstances, we can do the same with eyeglasses.  We also have a list of patients to call once we can see patients for more routine care, please let us know if you would like to be on that list.

If you have already ordered eyewear and/or contact lenses, please call the office and we will make arrangements for you to pick them up.

Please call or text the office at 502-349-2020 with any concerns or questions.

Stay safe!
