Questions About Eye Health?
Eye Care

Full-Service Eye Care at UVA

Did you know that eventually everyone will develop cataracts? They may develop at 60 years old or at 90; there's multiple factors involved. 

Optometrist Evan Kaufman, ODshares two pieces of advice for maintaining eye health:

  1. Get annual dilated eye exams so your doctor can properly evaluate your eyes and provide suitable treatment. 
  2. Don't sleep in contact lenses. It can lead to an increased chance of infection and significantly affect your vision.
