Be a Hero for Your Eyes This Solar Eclipse 2024


A solar eclipse is an eye-catching event, but it can also be a life-changing event if you fail to practice eye safety while enjoying this celestial phenomenon. Wearing sunglasses is not enough to protect your eyes from damage while looking at the sun directly - you need to instead acquire a pair of eclipse glasses from a reputable seller.



Such a rare and "burning" phenomenon is a solar eclipse. To see the light and not go blind you will need special equipment, but a warning - even this doesn't guarantee safety for your eyes. I would prefer to write in big letters "DON'T REPEAT IT AT HOME", but what to do with people who couldn't live without SOLAR ECLIPSE?

Welcome to Benjamin Eye Institute, where we prioritize our patients and their unique eye care needs. If you've scheduled your initial appointment with us, here's a step-by-step guide on what you can anticipate.

Eye tests



For the eye to focus optimally, two critical structures come into play: the cornea — the clear front surface of your eye, and the lens — nestled right behind your iris and pupil. A perfectly round cornea ensures sharp vision. Yet, in astigmatism, the cornea deviates from its ideal symmetrical round shape, leading to vision distortion.

Presbyopia: Overcoming Age-Related Vision Challenges


Unlike other eye conditions (such as myopia or astigmatism), presbyopia is specifically related to aging of the eye and the loss of flexibility of the eye's lens. As the eye ages, the lens becomes hard and rigid. Additionally, the associated muscles of the eye have aged and lost flexibility, rendering the lens unable to flex and focus. The result is an eye unable to focus on things that are close.

This aging of the eye is most noted around the age of 40. You may notice that you have to hold things further away in order to read fine print. Unfortunately, presbyopia is unavoidable, as it simply is the result of the eye aging.

Almost everyone will develop presbyopia, so if a person also has another eye condition such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) or astigmatism, the conditions will combine. Individuals that are nearsighted (myopia) may have fewer problems with presbyopia than those that are farsighted or those with astigmatism.
