What is Vision, Really?
There are few secrets left to discover about how stars form, what they are made of, and how light is produced in the incredibly hot cauldron at the core of a star. The secret lies elsewhere. As sunlight travels 93 million miles to Earth, it penetrates the atmosphere and lands somewhere on the planet. In this case, the only somewhere we’re interested in is your eye.
Photons, the packets of energy that carry light, stimulate the retina at the back of your eye, starting a chain of events that leads to your brain and the visual cortex. The miracle of vision lies in the mechanics of how the brain processes sunlight, that much is clear. Yet the step that matters the most, converting sunlight into vision, is totally mysterious.
Comprehensive Services for Healthy Eyes
Vision care is far more involved than you may imagine. The proper diagnosis of any eye condition is the basis for successful treatment. Our eye care services include comprehensive eye exams that observe the important structures in the eye and the latest treatment options for eye diseases.
