San Diego, CA (PRUnderground) March 18th, 2020

Eyes are one of the most important sensory organs of the human body. It is a well-known fact. Eyes are also one of the most complex organs next to the brain, and 80% of humans’ learning comes through eyes. Everyone is well aware of the significance of vision for survival. However, we seldom take action to safeguard our vision. Eyes are highly vulnerable, and adequate care is necessary to protect them. So, what are the steps we must undertake to protect our eyes?

“Make sure you get your annual eye exam to make sure your eyes are healthy. We can catch things that you may never know are going on.”, says Dr. Michael S. Matthews, OD.

DR. MICHAEL S. MATTHEWS, OD – Midway Optometry

Michael S. Matthews OD is a 2020 ThreeBestRated® Award-winning Eye doctor from San Diego, CA. He is an alumnus of the University of California, Berkeley, School of Optometry. Dr. Matthews practiced for several years in San Francisco, and Alameda and moved to Mazatlan, Mexico in 2015 after his retirement. But within a few years after his retirement, he started missing his practice so much. That made him come out of retirement and continue his service in optometry.

At the same time, he had an opportunity to take up the ownership of the Midway Optometry. Dr. Matthews acquired the office and became the fifth owner of Midway Optometry.

Since he became the owner of the Midway Optometry, he has restructured the office to be his dream practice. Midway Optometry now offers state of the art eye exams with state of the art equipment. They have made the diagnosis accurate using the Oculus suite of testing instruments; visual fields, autorefractor, and the M5 keratometer. They also have the OptoVue retina camera and OCT. The OCT is a laser that scans the retina and is capable of detecting eye diseases at the earliest possible moment. At the Midway optometry, they treat several anterior eye diseases, remove foreign bodies, and treat glaucoma. They are known for fitting all types of contact lenses, including complicated fits. A large selection of fashionable glasses is available. The EnChroma lens that helps people with color blindness see colors again is featured at Midway Optometry. Especially, Myopia control is a large part of Dr. Matthews practice.

Three Best Rated® had the opportunity to reach out to Dr. Matthews to learn about five simple tips to safeguard our eyes. His pieces of advice are:

  • The 20-20-20 rule. Every 20 minutes on the computer, take a 20-second break by looking 20 feet in the distance.

  • If you wear contacts, practice good hygiene to avoid eye infections. Overwearing contacts or taking naps in them is an easy way to get eye infections.

  • Consider getting lenses with a blue light blocking filter embedded in it to reduce the harmful light from electronic devices.

  • Dry eye is becoming more and more common, even in young people. Make sure you keep your eyes well-lubricated.

  • If you have suspicions that anything is wrong with your eyes, get it checked immediately. It’s better to take a few minutes to get it checked than to lose your vision forever.

Dr. Matthews has a mission to meet and exceed the best quality eye care for his patients. He proudly says, “Being listed in ThreeBestRated is a testament to all the hard work that my staff and I put in to make sure our patients are happy and well-educated about their eye health. I couldn’t be any prouder, and promise to continue providing the highest quality of care to my patients. To me, it means that my patients are seeing well with the prescription in their glasses, happy with the frames they chose, and most importantly, that they are educated about their eye health when they walk out the door.”
