Protecting Your Eyes

tennis largeDid you know…

  • Nearly half of traumatic eye injuries relate to ball sports
  • 45% of these occur in children under the age of 14
  • 90% of these are preventable

Polycarbonate is a lens material that is widely used for shatter-and-impact resistant lenses, and when combined with sturdy frame materials, makes for formidable eye protection.

There are hazards of sunlight and bright light that are harder to understand; namely, ultraviolet rays (UV) and Glare (extreme brightness). Protecting your eyes from these distracting, even dangerous elements is equally important to eye protection.

To all of our valued patients :

We are partially shutdown not selling glasses at this time and limiting how many patients can come into our optical at one time.

We hope to be selling glasses again in a few weeks around the beginning of May if not sooner.

I am doing urgent care such as eye infections, abrasions, etc and renewing expired eyeglass and contact lens prescriptions. We are selling and dispensing contact lenses and if they are not in stock we will mail them directly to you which not only helps to limit people in one place but is a convenience to you at no extra charge!

We strongly recommend that you wear a face mask when coming in for an exam and we are taking all of the precautions sterilizing our optical and equipment for the safety of everyone.

Our hours of operation are shortened temporarily to approximately from 10:00AM -2:00PM but will try our best to accommodate your needs in this time of the Corona Virus threat and cannot wait to be operating with a full schedule and staff hopefully soon.

Thank you so much for your understanding and support during this difficult time.
