Not only are we collectively growing older, we’re also working our tired eyes harder than ever before as more and more of our time, both at work and at play, is spent looking at screens,” Newsweek noted. “Meanwhile, serious eye ailments, like glaucoma, which can lead to blindness, are on the rise. With all that in mind, Newsweek partnered with the respected global data research firm Statista, to find the best eye doctors in the country”
