Written by David Evans, PhD, MBA   Posted on October 5, 2017

The 2017 NFL season is well under way, and as a native son of the Who Dat Nation (ie New Orleans Saints), it’s fair to say that I’m still waiting on our boys to hit stride this season after a 2-2 start. (I was particularly excited to see what the Adrian Peterson addition would yield […]

Dude, Where’s My Contact Lens?

Written by David Evans, PhD, MBA   Posted on July 28, 2017

I’ve worn disposable contact lenses for nearly 35 years, during which time I’ve had my share of minor problems. Accidentally falling asleep before removing them, losing one or having trouble getting one in place, forgetting to pack solution before a trip, etc. If you wear contacts, you’re undoubtedly familiar with some of these common issues.

Written by David Evans, PhD, MBA   Posted on July 26, 2017

I’m sitting down to write this blog after reading the news about Senator John McCain’s unfortunate announcement that he’s been diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor.

I recently returned from the Glaucoma Foundation Annual Think Tank, where I was invited to participate as an observer.

(The picture below shows the initial […]

Is Space Travel Bad For Your Eyes?

Written by David Evans, PhD, MBA   Posted on June 15, 2017

Once upon a time when I was in the Air Force, I worked on a team developing a special eye chart that would be used to test astronauts’ vision during space travel. Back then, the duration of space missions was relatively short (less than a few weeks) and few differences were found between their earthbound […]

Is Your Eye Pain an Eye-mergency?

Written by David Evans, PhD, MBA   Posted on June 6, 2017

I was chatting with one of our writers a few weeks back and he was telling me about a bizarre eye issue he experienced that prompted a visit to the doctor. He woke up one morning with extreme, sudden onset eye pain in the left eye. Something he’d not experienced before. He had light sensitivity […]

Mediterranean Diet a Sight for Sore Eyes

Written by David Evans, PhD, MBA   Posted on May 26, 2017

The old saying is, you are what you eat. Over the last few years as I have noticed my metabolism has slowed, I have to be much more conscious of what I eat. A burger here, a beer there… it adds up. Personally I hate diets. I like salads as much as the next guy, […]
