Happy World Sight Day!! What better way to spend a part of it than a walk through the autumn colours with my better half, sporting @oakley and @transitions_canada to be stylish and protected. How did you enjoy the light safely today?

The most fulfilling moment of my week: delivering a donation of protective goggles on behalf of @essilorcanada and the Essilor Vision Foundation to the Royal Ottawa Hospital. These goggles are part of a larger donation being made to more than 19 organizations and hospitals across Canada, to help protect our healthcare workers as they care for their patients during this pandemic. We thank them for all they do.

Affordably priced, these models are curated specifically for their ability to shield the eyes from different angles, and paired with an exceptional range of lenses. Profits going to support local Covid-19 responses. Ask me how to get access to great protective eyewear!

Just a quick note to pass along a Thank You.
Thank you to all the clients I've been in touch with that we've hopefully been able to help, and in turn for the help you've given others.
Thank you to those who have stayed home and helped keep others safe.
Thank you to those that are working on the front lines and facing this head on.
And thank you to all the others who, like Elvis, report every day to try and help where they can, including helping us to do that.
We're getting there.

Taking Care of Your Glasses While Social Distancing

Binge watching or reading and more screen time means you're leaning heavily on your glasses and want them in tip top shape during this stressful time. Here are some tips:

1. Clean your lenses regularly with a microfiber cloth
2. You can wash your lenses with lukewarm water and mild soap, then rinse under cold water
3. Don't use paper towels, or clothing to wipe your lenses! This can lead to scratches!

Have a problem with your eyewear, or have they broken? Contact me via DM and Elvis can put you in touch with an eyecare professional who can help. They, and we, are here to support you!

What's the Solution for No Solution?

If you're a contact lens wearer and you're running out of, or have run out of contact lens solution during social isolation, here are some tips:

1. Wear your backup glasses!
2. Put the empty case in boiling hot water to disinfect it.
3. Saline can be used to rinse your contact lenses, but will NOT disinfect them.
4. DO NOT rinse them with tap water! This could expose your lenses to Acanthamoeba, which can cause rare but severe infections of the eye.

There is no better solution than the proper solution - have a friend visit the pharmacy for you to keep your eyes safe and healthy!

Contact your eyecare professional for more info, or DM me for Elvis' help putting you in contact with someone who can help.

Staying home to stay safe?
While spending a lot of time at home during this challenging time, remember the 20/20/20 rule:

For every 20 minutes looking at a screen, look at something 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds.

** CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS **
Are you interested in changing the lives of kids in our community? Have some free time to help make a difference?

We're looking for volunteers with and without optical experience to help at vision screening clinics and mobile eye exam clinics at local public schools. Opportunities exist for people with administrative experience to help coordinate vision screenings, on site training for those interested in conducting preliminary screening, and for licensed opticians or optometric assistants to help children select frames for their glasses.

This is a great opportunity to change a child's world for the better!

WANT MORE DETAILS? EMAIL [email protected] for more info!

Happy New Year everyone, and to all of your families! We hope the holidays have been wonderful for you all.

The right eyewear is as important as the other gear you wear in the shop!
Varilux Digitime Mid not only protects my eyes while I'm doing my woodworking, it also gives me great arms length clarity and a perfect near boost so I can avoid mistakes.

And this *is* my concentration face.

Happy World Sight Day!
Today I worked with partners from the Lions Club and Dr Said Karimzad and the Canadian Council of the Blind to finish up eye exams for students referred from the Education Foundation of Ottawa's vision screening clinic at Queen Mary Public School.
45 children examined, 21 pairs of glasses = 1 transformative experience!
