Research identifies ‘sweet spot’ of added correction that doesn’t compromise vision
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Bifocal contact lenses aren’t just for aging eyes anymore. In nearsighted kids as young as 7 years old, multifocal contact lenses with a heavy dose of added reading power can dramatically slow further progression of myopia, new research has found.
Congratulations to Ohio State

“Justice is what love looks like in public.” – Cornel West, PhD
Words truly fail. 2020 was to be our year of vision. Now we feel like it’s the year we know we needed to see; we must not look away. We must continue to strive to rise above society’s racist demons and to emerge more just, better, and kinder.
