One of the biggest mistakes I made throughout my school years was not asking enough questions.
Whether it was due to fear or ego, I almost never asked questions in class or went to office hours to ask for help. Not surprisingly, this lack of asking also stretched in to other area of life as well.
Fortunately, at some point along the way, I realized I was hindering my own growth by succumbing to this fear or letting my ego get the better of me. So over the last decade or so, I have deliberately forced myself to ask questions even if I feel it may make me look silly.
There are obvious situations where this is helpful such as in the exam room, discussions with colleagues, and in CE lectures. But there are other, less obvious scenarios that I have found it to be helpful. For example, asking for the time/location that is more convenient for me when scheduling meetings. Or when negotiating terms for a contract. Or, what has become my favourite personal challenge, asking for a discount.
The last one sounds silly. But trust me, if you want to push yourself out of your comfort zone, start asking for a discount everywhere you go. It’s actually amusing to see how some people react. And, once in a while, you’ll be rewarded by saving a few (or maybe a few hundred) bucks!
I’m definitely still working on this. But the one thing I have learned is that the feeling of looking stupid for asking a question passes much faster than the feeling of frustration after missing an opportunity to ask.
Who’s good at asking questions? Who’s been working on it? ✋🏻
Ever since joining the optical industry I have been so aware of my eyes. I think about how much we use our vision for EVERYTHING in our day to day lives. Visiting my optometrist has become almost as regular as seeing my dentist. I want to keep them healthy so they can serve me for the many years I have ahead of me!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Think about it, when is the last time you’ve had your eyes 👀 examined by an optometrist🥼? Adults should be going at least once every two years for a comprehensive eye exam, to make sure they are not developing any eye related problems such as glaucoma. If your vision 👓 is important to you, be safe not sorry and visit an eye doctor! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Are you guilty of using social media as a “television” rather than a “telephone?” 📺
Remember, it’s called “social” media for a reason. Don’t use your business pages as a way to just blast out promos and information about yourself, but provide real value to your audience and engage with them as well as other pages. ‼️
Treat your social media page as a phone conversation, not a television show! 📲

Ever sit down to do some work or social media scroll and suddenly realize you haven't blinked for a long time? Maybe your eyes start to burn or water? Perhaps your vision starts to blur or feel sensitive to the brightness of the screen. Those are signs of computer vision syndrome aka digial eye strain.
Computer vision syndrome symptoms occur with prolonged digital device use, that's your cell phone, laptop, tablet.
Most common symptoms:
neck and shoulder pain
These symptoms may be caused by:
glare on a digital screen
improper viewing distances
poor seating posture
uncorrected vision problems
a combination of these factors
Here is what you need to do: 👁Make sure you take vision breaks
😖Blink your eyes 😎Use blue light filters (in your glasses or on the device)
💦Use moisture replenishing drops
👩💻Adjust your device angle to be 15-20 degrees lower than your eye level. 👩🏫Get an eye exam
Remember the 20-20-20 rule
Every 20 minutes, look 20 feet away for 20 seconds.
That is your #FrEYEday Tip

A case of a patient with lung malignancy and an intraorbital mass.
This elderly patient has also got exophthalmos in his left eye and lacks of eye movement as well. His visual acuity is NLP and due to exposure there is conjunctival reaction and dryness especially in inferior quadrants making the patient suffer from serious eye pain.
No, this video is not sped up! This patient has Nystagmus.
Nystagmus is a condition of involuntary (or voluntary, in rare cases) eye movement, acquired in infancy or later in life, that may result in reduced or limited vision. Due to the involuntary movement of the eye, it has been called "dancing eyes"
In a normal condition, while the head rotates about an axis, distant visual images are sustained by rotating eyes in the opposite direction on the respective axis. The semicircular canals in the vestibule of the ear sense angular acceleration. These send signals to the nuclei for eye movement in the brain. From here, a signal is relayed to the extraocular muscles to allow one’s gaze to fixate on one object as the head moves. Nystagmus occurs when the semicircular canals are being stimulated (e.g. by means of the caloric test, or by disease) while the head is not in motion. The direction of ocular movement is related to the semicircular canal that is being stimulated.
There are two key forms of nystagmus: pathological and physiological, with variations within each type. Nystagmus may be caused by congenital disorder or sleep deprivation, acquired or central nervous system disorders, toxicity, pharmaceutical drugs, alcohol, or rotational movement. Previously considered untreatable, in recent years several drugs have been identified for treatment of nystagmus. Nystagmus is also occasionally associated with vertigo.
