Outstanding Dry Eye Practice Award

Outstanding Dry Eye Practice Award

We’re thrilled to be awarded the Outstanding Dry Eye Practice Award from Eye Eco. Dr. A and our entire team at eye2eye are dedicated to helping dry eye patients find relief. It’s truly an honor to be recognized for our work in this area.

“Dry eyes affect more than 40 million Americans, but less than 5% of people have been properly diagnosed with Dry Eye Disease. Dry Eye Disease can cause many health issues including obscured vision, dry skin, and even blindness. It can be caused by many things – including time looking at screens. For most of us that activity isn’t going away anytime soon,” said Eye Eco.

We’re committed to our continued efforts to help dry eye patients deal with symptoms and find relief. If you’d like to learn more about our dry eye treatment options, click here.

Team Aspeechia

Team Aspeechia

Dr. A’s daughter competed in a global competition for girls who code last week, learn more about their story below.

Two local Northern Virginia middle school girls pitched their app Aspeechia to Silicon Valley, representing the United States in a global competition for girls who code. Melina Kalamatianos and Ryley Largent met at an after-school computer science studio called Coder Kids in McLean. In September of 2017 they, along with their mentors Cecilia Hahn and Shreya Bhatia, began developing a smartphone app to help kids who suffer from a common disorder called Childhood Apraxia of Speech, or CAS. The app helps kids develop better speech pronunciation and can be used in conjunction with speech therapy. Aspeechia also makes speech coaching available to children in areas where speech therapists are not always easily accessible.

Team Aspeechia was chosen out of 2,000 teams from across the world to compete as of one six finalists in Technovation’s Junior Division, where they represented the United States. They pitched their app to members of Google’s engineering team and other Silicon Valley pros.

Melina was motivated to create this app because she knows how difficult dealing with a speech disorder can be. “Since I went through speech therapy myself, I wanted to help eliminate the stigma that is associated for kids who have to do therapy,” Melina said.

Ryley’s personal experience with her sister’s speech delays helped her understand just how impactful an app like Aspeechia could be. “Watching my little sister go through her speech and language processing delays made me want to create something to help empower young children in their own treatments,” Ryley said.

Melina and Ryley, both just 12 years old, hope to see their app grow and help more kids who suffer from CAS. Aspeechia is currently available on Google Play for Android only, but they hope to change that and offer the app for Apple products as well.

Back to School Exams

Back to School Exams

August has arrived and with it, back to school shopping lists. One of the most important things you can add to your back to school to-do list is a comprehensive eye exam for the kids, and for yourself.

For many folks, a physical exam is required before school starts. Your family doctor may do a vision screening, but that is not sufficient to asses your child’s near vision as screenings typically only asses distance vision.

Kids spend a lot of their time looking at near objects like textbooks, iPads, and laptops. Near vision struggles can make kids uncomfortable staying focused on near sight required tasks – this can result in a decreased desire to read, poor handwriting skills and trouble focusing.

A comprehensive eye exam done by your family’s eye doctor will help to make sure your child has sufficient near vision and isn’t struggling. And your eye doctor will also be able to identify other vision problems that may impede learning.

To schedule an appointment for a back to school eye exam for your child, click here.

5 Summer Safety Tips

5 Summer Safety Tips

Summer fun has arrived – that means swimming, hiking and other outdoor fun! Keeping your eyes safe during summer activities is easy with Dr. A’s simple tips. Got bug spray in your eye? Not sure if your sunglasses are protecting you properly? Read on for answers.

  • Be careful when spraying bug spray. If bug spray gets in your eyes, be sure to flush them completely with water and call your eye doctor right away.
  • Always wear sunglasses that have 100% UVA & UVB protection, we’ll be covering this topic more in the coming weeks. If you aren’t sure if your sunglasses offer 100% protection, stop in and we’ll test them for free.
  • Wear sunscreen around the eye area to protect your eyelids from burning. Also, wear sunglasses!
  • Chlorine from swimming pools can cause a chemical burn in your eyes. Use preservative free artificial tears to flush out your eyes after exposure, and be sure to rinse off after pool time.
  • Contact lens wearers should be especially careful not to open their eyes underwater in a pool or other water area. River & lake water carry a variety of microorganisms, the most damaging called acanthamoeba. This organism has the ability to attach to your contact lens and as a result cause the cornea to become infected. Scarring can occur if the eye is not treated.

Have a safe and FUN summer by following Dr. A’s summer eye safety tips!
