Not many people work in a profession that requires them to dedicate their lives to helping others like the field of healthcare does. During national healthcare recognition, we have challenged people to sum up in one or a few words the impact their profession means to them and how important it is for their community. 

Despite popular opinion, men need to take care of themselves.

Asthenopia is the medical term for eyestrain or eye fatigue which can sometimes cause headaches located above the brow. This can arise from prolonged and/or tedious near visual tasks. A common source of asthenopia is glare from electronic devices such as smart phones, tablets, and computers.

Asthenopia can be a symptom of hyperopia, which is farsightedness, presbyopia, which is difficulty focusing up close due to physiological changes caused by aging, or focusing disorders.
