National Kindness Day

It may be chilly outside but may the warmth we generate within our hearts be enough to sustain us and others.

February is all about heart and soul. The American Heart Association outlines what it takes to have a healthy heart, but we know it’s more than just diet and exercise, it takes opening it up to others.

“ The openness of our hearts and minds can be measured by how wide we draw the circle of what we call family.” Mother Teresa

Glaucoma Awareness Month

January is Glaucoma Awareness Month. As the second leading cause of blindness in the US, glaucoma is very much treatable and manageable, as long as it is diagnosed in a timely manner, to avoid vision loss. The good news is that time is on our side, as it is typically a slowly progressive disease. The bad news is that the damage to the optic nerve that results is typically permanent and the vision loss irreversible:

Because there are no real symptoms to alert you early on, it is imperative to have routine eye exams to detect glaucoma. Many varieties exist, but it essentially restricts the flow of fluid from the eye, causing an increase in the eye’s internal pressure, which ultimately compromises the optic nerve, resulting in vision loss.
