Are your kids continuing with Remote Learning? Fatigue, discomfort, blurry vision, and increased near-sightedness are some of the issues Optometrists are reportedly seeing among children who are carrying on with online learning.

Use this list to help your kids avoid harming their eyes:
- Make sure they take a short screen break every 15 minutes
- Increase the font size to help them avoid squinting
- Balance natural light to avoid glare from their screens
- Encourage them to keep their electronic devices at least arms-length away

It's about that time for school pictures! Photos where glare from glasses disguises beautiful eyes can be so frustrating!

This is where anti-reflective coating comes to the rescue, reducing the appearance of glare on lenses. The anti-reflective coating has many other benefits as well, here are a few:

- reduces eye strain
- helps night driving
- repels water and makes lenses easier to clean.

Make an appointment to pick a new pair of specs and request anti-reflective coating to be added to the set!

What Are Football Visors and Why Do Players Wear Them

4 days until the first official NFL game makes it officially Football Season and time for some tailgating fun!

Did you know that more players in the National Football League (NFL) are using visors to protect their eyes than ever before, despite visors being optional? Eye injuries and concussions are the biggest vision risks that football players take. Damage to the eye, eye socket, and visual areas of the brain can happen when a player is tackled too hard, or when another player’s flying hands or elbows come in contact with their eyes. To prevent these from happening, eye care professionals are urging the NFL to make eye protection mandatory. There are also more benefits to these visors, read up on them here:

A key part of an American football helmet is the visor which is attached to the face mask part of the helmet, and protects the eyes (sometime called an eye-shield). Visors aren’t required, but they…

Eagles stand out when it comes to excellent long-distance vision.

They can see about 8x farther than humans can, allowing them to spot, focus on, and zoom in on an animal as small as a rabbit from nearly 2 miles away. Their vision is best during the day, so they will sleep immediately after sundown.

A #GOAT is (one of the) Greatest of all Time when it comes to their eyes.

Goat eyes can easily rotate and their pupils are shaped like rectangles to help them remain constantly alert of their surroundings which is extremely important for prey animals, like goats, who are grazing with their heads lowered.

Mantis shrimp might have one of the most complex sets of eyes in the entire animal kingdom.

Their eyes can move independently of each other, just like a chameleon. And, with 16 eye cones- the part of the eye responsible for color vision- mantis shrimp have a very advanced color recognition system.

John Lennon's Green Sunglasses Sell for $183,000 at Auction

$183,000.00 going once? $183,000.00 going twice?

A pair of John Lennon's sunglasses were SOLD at an auction in London after being left in the back seat of the car that the late icon's former chauffeur, Alan Herring, picked John, Ringo, and George up in, in the summer of 1986.

The glasses were damaged, with a missing screw and lens scratches. But really, the damage definitely does not outweigh the reward for both the buyer and the seller in this circumstance.

Would you offer more for this pair of non-prescription specs? #ExpensiveSpecs

Just like high blood pressure, many eye conditions have no early symptoms and you do not know what your body is going through until you get checked out. Many health conditions also have eye-related side effects that an eye exam can bring to your attention. This is one of the main reasons why regular eye exams are extremely important, especially for those over the age of 60.

These days, glasses often have a lifespan of 1-3 years, but there are some treatments you can add to your lenses to make them more durable. One treatment is scratch resistance. Looking to replace lenses from a pair of vintage frames? Ensuring the right lens coating and treatments is something to consider! Antique eyeglasses made of solid gold often last longer and other, newer antique frames and are more likely to last with no breakage during a lens replacement.

It's the middle of baseball season! A perfect time to talk baseball and eyeballs. One question we had: Does eye dominance make a difference? Pitchers have been evaluated with respect to eye dominance and earned run average but it turns out, there is really no association between eye dominance, pitching, hitting, or fielding skills in baseball. Case closed. Game on.

Early diagnosis for any eye/vision issues is always ideal.

Before the bell rings, here is your reminder to get an appointment in the books for your school-aged children.

An academy-administered vision screening is not a comprehensive eye exam-- one of the most important exams to ensure your student starts off on the right foot.

Eyecare practice exams are necessary to determine what may be needed to enhance vision, from glasses to contacts to vision therapy, which can lead to an increased level of three very important aspects of success in class:
- Comprehension
- Responsiveness
- Retention

Beat the rush and schedule an appointment before the bell rings! 🔔✏️👀
