Q&A with Dr. Takeia Locke

Dr. Locke Answers Your Eyecare Questions

Why should I discuss one day disposables with Dr. Locke?

Simple answer: Convenience, Comfort, Cleanliness.

Most eye infections come from bacteria that live on your eyes and skin. Contact lenses (especially when over worn and slept in) and contact lens cases can become a great environment for these bacteria to have a “party” aka cause an infection.

Your body also responds unfavorably to extended wear of the same lens in the form of an allergic response.

Frequent replacement with a sanitized, germ free lens keeps your eyes comfortable and healthy by minimizing infections and protein build up.

Looking For Vision Therapy Specialist in Buckhead, Atlanta?

Vision Therapy is by far one of the most life changing managements we offer in our office. Now more than ever, the visual demand in a typical day for all of us, including some infants, puts an enormous strain on the visual system-which includes the brain AND the body. A fatigued child or adult can turn into an easily distracted child or adult. For children and adults any binocular vision problem likely impacts their learning and productivity.

Therapy can also aim to rehabilitate a vision system troubled do to head injuries and concussions from sports or accidents, tumors, balance problems. Certain medications can also cause visual disturbances and can benefit from some version of therapy.

Although the overall vision system is too complicated to detail in a short article, the bottom line is that your eyes are not a stand alone entity. They are connected to our brains and our body and can wreak havoc on our lifestyles when they are not working as they should- or in a lot of adult cases overworked.

Offering therapy in our office helps troubleshoot problems related to underlying vision difficulties and can be done actively in the office, at home, or sometimes with a specialized pair of glasses.

Remember to discuss your lifestyle, goals, history and medications, and ask Dr. Takeia Locke and our office staff all of your questions. We are here to improve your lifestyle in any way that we can. If Vision Therapy is an option for you, we are happy to discuss the benefits. Click here for Vision Therapy patient testimonials!
