Plenty of areas across the country experience more than their fair share of bright and sunny days. That's part of the reason why holidaymakers continue to head to Australia, and it isn't exactly bad for natives either. However, such extensive exposure to UV light can cause health issues, and one of the lesser-known problems is pterygium, sometimes referred to as 'surfer's eye'. Here's a quick overview of everything you need to know.
Welcome to my blog. My name is Matthew, and my blog focuses on everything related to optometry, with an emphasis on making the most of your vision consultations with your optometrists. Although I am not an optometrist, I have been involved in the industry for years as a glasses wearer. I hope that the facts, ideas and range of posts about optometry here help you, and if you share them, I hope they help your friends as well. When I'm not typing on a computer, I love to do woodworking, ski, read, follow politics and spend time with my family.
