Do you wear contacts? According to a new survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you’re engaging in risky behavior. The survey was conducted with nearly one-third of participating contact lens wearers admitting they went to the doctor for red or painful eyes related to wearing contacts.
Not since “less filling” vs. “tastes great” has there been a debate this all-consuming. One little cocktail party dress is getting the whole world to throw drinks in other people’s faces. The question of whether a dress posted on Tumblr is blue and black or whether it’s white and gold has everyone drawing clear lines in the sand.
Without good vision, everything is much more difficult. But if you don’t have insurance, it can be a struggle to pay for an eye exam and prescription glasses. About 20 St. Paul kids who failed vision screenings at their school last fall got a follow-up exam Thursday with an optometrist.
The Twin Cities are seeing another benefit from hosting the 2014 All-Star Game. Major League Baseball and the Minnesota Twins are funding a program that provides free eye exams to people who can’t afford to see a doctor.

It’s Friday, and that means it’s time for Heather Brown to dig into the Good Question mailbag to answer some of your best queries. And it looks like, despite it being so late in the season, people still have many questions about winter.

Now that children are back in the school, doctors say it’s a good time to have their vision checked.
