IamA I'm Dr. Tanya Gill licensed optometrist: AMA! …Like about why your eyeglasses are so expensive, or about any other “eye-care” conspiracies!
My short bio: Hi Reddit, I am Dr. Tanya Gill, UC Berkeley trained Optometrist and Entrepreneur based in Oakland CA. I’ve been practicing Optometry for 17 years and have seen just about everything you can imagine come through my office o__o
Recently I’ve been treating an increasing number of patients suffering from computer eye strain. Yes screens are bad for your eyes! Yes I am staring at a screen now for this AMA ;) Thank you for having me and looking forward to answering your questions.
 Note: I do not condone or agree with re-using daily contact lenses. I do not want you to buy your glasses or contact lenses online as it undermines my small business while putting money into greedy internet companies. Buying your glasses or contact lenses at your local optometry office puts money into your community: jobs, public works, community programs, etc. Let's all #shoplocal and do this!
