LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

Hello, Friends,

I’ve been wearing glasses since I was in 6th grade. Oh, I fought having to wear them. I would hide them from myself and just hated being seen in them. Nowadays – older and wiser but still nearsighted – wearing my glasses is second nature. It’s the first thing I do every morning. I have embraced the preciousness of eyesight and acquiesce to the fact that

Tanya Tyler

if I want to see clearly now, I have to wear my glasses. But now and then I ponder the possibility of having LASIK surgery. I’ll have to look into it. This month’s issue of Health&Wellness explores other aspects of eye health, from age-related eye problems to the effect our tiny phone and tablet screens may have on our vision. Our good health is in our hands. Wouldn’t it be great to combine heart health and eye health? Check out the article about the upcoming Tri-For-Sight triathlon. The run, bike and swim will do your heart good and you’ll be raising funds for eye research for the University of Kentucky Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences. You don’t need 20/20 vision to know it’s a win- win for a lot of people.

Here’s to your health,

Tanya

RETINAL DETACHMENT

The eye is a marvelous organ. Sight occurs when light rays enter the eye through the cornea. The cornea bends the light, which passes through the pupil, a size-changing hole in the iris. The iris works somewhat like a shutter in a camera, allowing light to pass through. After it passes through, the light hits the  eye’s ….
