Our Somerset Optometrist Supports Healthy Vision Month in May!
Franklin Family Eyecare has offered quality eye care in Somerset, NJ since 2000. Our optometrist, Dr. Josephine Ngong-Tawe, is passionate about providing high-quality exams for children, adults, and seniors. We believe it is important for patients to maintain eye health so you can see clearly, perform tasks safely, and get the most out of life. That is why we want to let you know about Healthy Vision Month in May.
Healthy Vision Month in May
Sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Healthy Vision Month is a nationwide education effort in May aimed at reducing vision loss. The CDC stresses that taking care of your eyes should be high on your health priority list, along with good nutrition and physical activity. While many eye conditions, such as myopia, can be easily corrected, other diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy can lead to vision loss and blindness if not properly diagnosed and treated. To protect eye health, the CDC recommends that you eat right, maintain a healthy weight, quit smoking, wear protective eyewear and sunglasses, and wash your hands before touching your eyes.
Our Optometry Center Helps Keep Your Eyes Healthy
The best way to maintain optimal eye health is to have a regular comprehensive dilated eye exam from our professional optometrist. It is estimated that over 11 million Americans above the age of 12 could see better with glasses, contact lenses, or eye surgery. Dr. Ngong-Tawe uses state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and her skills as an optometrist and research scientist to diagnose and manage chronic eye conditions. She also treats eye allergies, dry eyes, pink eyes, and evaluates and corrects vision problems with prescriptions for eyeglasses and contacts. Conditions treated include computer vision, glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
