3 Things You Need To Know About Glaucoma Right Now

Glaucoma can cause blindness. It is detectable by an Optometrist and can be treated before symptoms present themselves and before vision loss starts. The best way to prevent this disease is by having an eye exam, at least every 2 years if you’re under age 40, and every year if you’re 40 or above.

Do I Really Need Quality Sunglasses?

Lots of people wonder why or if they should spend money on a “good pair of sunglasses”, or whether the pair they bought at the gas station or drug store will do.  Here’s the reasons why you may want to consider a high quality pair:

  • The number one reason is that UV protection will protect your eyes from skin cancer, cataracts, macular degeneration.
  • An optically fit pair of sunglasses will look and feel better, is higher quality and will last much longer.
  • If you’re doing watersports, our glasses will take the glare off with the polarization filters.
  • Winter driving with lots of reflection coming off the snow or the sun-glare hood of the vehicle or icy or wet roads. You have enough to concentrate on without having to worry about squinting to see.
  • Bright adaptation, if you go from a bright sunny day to a darker environment you can see clearly right away.

If you don’t have a good pair of sunglasses, I encourage and welcome you to come by our store and we’ll help you find a pair to protect your eyes and look great!
