Blinking is essential. Every time our eyelids close, salty secretions from our tear glands sweep over our eyes’ surfaces, protecting them from harmful particles. The average person blinks 12 to 15 times per minute but when you’re in front of a computer screen, that number decreases dramatically to 3 to 4 times per minute. With the average American spending 6 to 8 hours each day in front of a computer, we’re missing out on hundreds of opportunities to cleanse and protect our eyes.
At Columbus Ophthalmology Associates, we shoot for the moon. In our world, the moon is each satisfied patient, which is our goal 100% of the time. Our Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, and Opticians take a lot of pride in the relationship that they have with each patient. They also pride themselves in the work that they do to ensure each patient has optimal visual ability. And we LOVE when our patients are happy with their results. The best compliment that we can receive as a practice is from our patients. We are driven by the desire for each patient to have an excellent experience with all of our staff and with their procedures. The best compliments to our practice come from our patients. When they volunteer amazing feedback and testimonials about their experience, we know we’ve successfully accomplished our goal. Take a look at the patient testimonial that Debra shared with us after her brow lift with Dr. Cho:
We love to highlight the work that we do as well as our patients. You can see some of our other satisfied patient testimonials by visiting the Columbus Ophthalmology Associates YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/user/coavisioncolumbus.

This condition is a result of inflammation of the membrane (conjunctiva) that covers the white of the eye and the inner portion of the upper and lower eyelids.
