Do You Know How Many Hours Your Child Spends in Front of a Screen?
 
 
 
 
Addiction to devices with screens is starting earlier and earlier in age. With laptops, smartphones, and tablets everywhere, this newest generation picks up their devices at dawn, and doesn’t put them down until they fall asleep at night; never giving their eyes the rest they need.  On average, tweens in the United States spend 6 hours per day, looking at a screen. For teenagers, this average jumps up to nearly 9 hours per day!

What are the long-term effects of so much screen time? What can be done to remedy its effects, particularly for dry eye?

A Personal Message from Janine Disanti, O.D.
 
 
 
 

Hello patients of MEA! I am Dr. Janine Disanti. It has been a pleasure getting to know many of you in my last year and a half at Matossian Eye Associates. I graduated from optometry school last May 2016 after deciding to pursue optometry at the age of 14 and I couldn't be more excited to be working doing what I love! My boyfriend Mike and I live together in Conshohocken along with our cat named Penny that we adopted 3 years ago.


I love to travel and plan mini trips with any free time I have. Before optometry school, I was able to travel to Europe three summers in a row but optometry school put a hold on all of that. However, just this October I broke my travel drought and traveled to Italy with my dad and my sister. It was my dad's first trip to Europe! He is 100% Italian and has always wanted to go to Italy, so it was great to see him live out his dream.

We also have relatives that live near Rome that we were able to meet for the first time which was an amazing experience. We city hopped during the trip and stayed in Rome, Cinque Terre, Florence, and Venice. I'd have to say hiking between the Cinque Terre villages was my favorite part.


I hope to meet many of you and thank you for welcoming me to the MEA practice.
