The top five of 2020

2020 was the most unusual year of most, if not all, of our lives. Through it all, we worked hard to keep you educated about important issues related to eye, ENT, audiology, allergy, and facial plastic surgery care. This year, our top five blogs were:


A woman's eyes water because she's tired

5: WHY DO MY EYES WATER WHEN I’M TIRED?

It’s late, you’re tired, and as you start yawning your eyes start to water. Why is that? Why does being tired make your eyes tear?


A woman's eyes burn in the morning

4: WHY DO MY EYES BURN IN THE MORNING?

Not all of us are morning people, but waking up every day can be uncomfortable for anyone if our eyes burn. But why does that happen? Is it a cause for alarm?


A man's nose runs when he eats

3: WHY DOES MY NOSE RUN WHEN I EAT?

While you love a good meal, you’re always a little embarrassed to eat with other people. That’s because, for some reason, your nose runs every time you eat. What is happening, and is there any way to stop it?


A flashbang

2: HOW DO FLASHBANGS WORK?

You’ve seen them on TV or in the movies: A SWAT Team needs to quickly bring down a gang of criminals. One officer throws something into a room, and it explodes with a blinding light and a loud noise. The criminals are stunned and apprehended safely. Those officers used a flashbang. Flashbangs are real and are used by law enforcement officers regularly. But how, exactly, do they work?


Smell and taste and coronavirus

1: CORONAVIRUS AND YOUR SENSE OF SMELL AND TASTE

Many of the symptoms of the COVID-19 coronavirus are well known: fever, chills, and signs of respiratory illness. But scientists have recently determined that a loss of sense of smell and a distortion of the sense of taste are very likely tied to COVID-19, too.
