May is time to think about how you can protect your eyes so you will have healthy vision in your future. Everyday protection is easy with quality sunglasses that block the sun’s UV light! Wear sunglasses – even on cloudy days! Choose sunglasses that block at least 99 percent of both UVA and UVB radiation. Wear a wide-brimmed hat when you’re outdoors for extra eye protection. Also, you are what you eat! Include choices like kale, spinach, orange bell peppers, and berries. Fish entrees will help you get your Omega’s! Quit smoking because on top of all the carcinogenic effects it can also cause cataracts. Lastly, reduce your screentime or take frequent breaks following the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, take a 20-second break to look at something 20 feet away. Stop in to see our collection of quality sunglasses and learn more about limiting your blue light exposure indoors through lens coatings like Crizal anti-glare lens treatments.
Blue light exposure is a part of our daily life, from computer screens, cell phones, and the biggest emitter, the sun! Never before has exposure been so widespread. Blue light is responsible for several eye health problems, including digital eyestrain, cataracts,and macular degeneration. Exposure to the sunlight is greatest in our youth, so it is important to begin good eye health habits early. The eyewear in this collection combines Crizal anti-glare coating and Transitions lenses on a polycarbonate lens to give the highest level of blue light and UV protection available. Kids 8 and under spend an average of 2 hours per day of screen time, while older kids between 8 -12 years of age, spend an average of 4 1/2 hours on digital screens.
With the CLUB, kids choose the frame they love and watch as the frame and lenses turn dark colors as they go outdoors, then back to clear when they step indoors! They are fun AND protective, so kids LOVE them! Kids also get a packet including stickers, coloring pages, and a convenient carrying bag. We are exclusive suppliers of this exciting new collection, so stop in and see for yourself how fun this protective eyewear can be!
How many hours a day are you exposed to blue light? Think about your exposure from sunlight, computer screens, cell phones, TV’s, and video games. It adds up quick! The amount of technology screens we view each day has caused a new entity in eye ailments called Digital Eyestrain. Symptoms include dry, irritated eyes, headaches, fatigue, and blurred vision. Adults are spending much of their workday and free time on computer screens. Kids are viewing screens at an alarming rate of 2 – 6 hours a day. Even infants are seen with Ipads in their hands! What to do about all this exposure to blue light?? New coatings and lens designs are now available to block blue light and glare to improve comfort and protect your eyes. We are ready to educate you on these problems and prescribe the products best suited to your lifestyle. We will be asking you about your “Screen Time” at your next visit!

It is time to think about “Back to School” and that means more than new clothes and school supplies. School screenings are specific only to identify poor vision at a chalkboard distance. They are unable to identify vision disorders that affect near vision or binocular vision (using the two eyes together). Ensure your child is actually ready to learn when they go back to school by scheduling a vision examination. We test all aspects of vision as it applies to learning including focusing, tracking, and vergence skills, all necessary to perform optimally in school. Don’t delay, summer is almost over!

Daily replacement contact lenses are gaining in popularity. They are certainly the most convenient way to wear contact lenses, but are there other reasons to switch to dailies other than convenience? Definitely! They provide users with many benefits other than convenience, specifically, better eye health, elimination of certain contact lens associated symptoms, and options for travel or infrequent wear. Ask us for a trial supply at your next contact lens exam and see for yourself!
