Expert Tip #1 - Regular Eye Exams
Regular eye exams are an important part of your total healthcare regime. Many systemic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid and rheumatoid arthritis are discovered or monitored during a comprehensive dilated eye exam. A healthy lifestyle should include good eyecare.
Expert Tip #2 – Progressive Lenses
The newest digital processing of progressive spectacle lenses has evolved to a point where the difference in clarity of vision between high quality (optical products) and poorer quality (optical products) is similar to the difference in Hi-Definition TV and old analog TV. Patients are now definitely able to “see the difference”.
Expert Tip #3 – UV Protection
UV (ultraviolet) protection in your eyewear is always a good idea. For those with active lifestyles and/or jobs requiring outdoor activity, and especially if your family history (cataracts, macular degeneration) puts you more at risk from sun damage, good UV protection is a must.
