You get what you pay for. `

Quality is an important issue when it comes to glasses. For instance, Crizal Avance antireflective coating will double the cost of a simple pair of lenses. Still, eventhough the no glare coating adds to the price of the lenses it is value added. The Crizal Avance coating reduces glare at the computer, under fluorescent lights and while driving at night. The hydrophobic properties make it easy to clean. It resists dust and fingerprints. Furthermore, when you have an anti-reflective coating like Crizal Avance, it makes it easier to see your eyes.

When you purchase glasses remember that you get what you pay for. Quality will pay for itself in durability, functionality and in beauty.

Question of the day.

I have a medical issue that I am trying to figure out. If there are experts in the bloggosphere that comes across this I am interested in your advice. I am 30 and recently had cataract surgery in my left eye. Now I have one eye that sees 20/25 with no focusing ability and one eye that sees 20/15 and can focus. My trouble is that when I try to focus it shakes the IOL and makes my vision funny. I am thinking of getting some progressive glasses but I am not sure how that affects things like creating early presbyopia, visual balance etc. If you have any thoughts let me know by leaving a comment.

Allergy Season

Allergic Conjunctivitis is not fun. The eyes can get watery and itchy. It can make it difficult to do those things that you have fun with. If you have sinus allergies don't leave your eyes out of the equation. Simple solutions like Pataday or Elestat can help. These mast cell stabilizers and histamine blockers are designed to deal with allergies in the eyes. Check out for a place to find a doctor to help make your eyes feel better.

Don't settle for eye strain

Eye tracking is an important part of sports and reading. When visual efficiency lacks in saccades (eye jumping) and pursuits (smooth eye movements) this can cause poor performance in sports and cause a student to struggle with reading. This is something that vision therapy can help. A person can learn, through specific training, to improve these functions. If you have trouble keeping your eye on the ball, we can help.

We can help.

In an effort to focus on the need of others our new ad campaign will be listing specific elements of vision that we can address. This is an exciting new series of photographs that highlight my own family and inform patients of services that may not be familiar to others.

New promotion

We are not offering half off a second pair of glasses. This is to help those who need more than one pair of glasses in their lives. This is good for a second pair of reading glasses, sunglasses, a spare pair for the car or just a different look. This offer is good for the same patient ordering on the same day.
