A new study indicates that having cataract surgery may reduce the risk of dementia. Dr. Bob Melrose reviews this interesting research. Then, Dr. Bob and Dr. Yolanda Scheer dive into the world of glasses that are specifically designed for computer use. Even for people with a very mild prescription, long hours on the computer make your eyes work really hard. Computer or office glasses can take over a lot of that focusing work, reducing your eye strain and making you more comfortable. Finally, Dr. Bob and Mark Calonico explore one of Stockton's "hidden gems": the Stockton Chorale. Learn about the Chorale's history, how they weathered the pandemic, and the exciting new opportunities they've got coming up this year.
We all can relate to hours spent each day on our smart phone, tablet and computer. The average adult American spends close to 4 hours a day on an electronic device (excluding television). You start off each day seeing well, your eyes feeling good, but that all changes as the day wears on. By the end of the day, your eyes are now feeling tired, going in and out of focus, maybe feeling dry and needing to blink a lot to focus and even have some degree of a headache around or behind your eyes.
