Sunglasses are crucial to your good health!
We all know sunscreen is important for protecting your skin – sunglasses provide the same necessary protection for your eyes. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation has been linked to cataracts and macular degeneration. It is extremely important that children begin to wear sun protection as early as possible to avoid the potential of these diseases. It’s never too late to start protecting your eyes.
The best eye protection is provided by good quality sunglasses blocking 100% of the UV rays. Our opticians can help you select the perfect sunglasses for you, whether you need prescription sunglasses, recreational sunglasses, or non-prescription fashion eyewear.
Research has proven that multi-vitamins may help various eye disorders such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, dry eye syndrome and diabetes. Ask Dr. Ostrander for more information to see if a multi-vitamin regimen is right for you.
Do you experience burning, itching, redness, dryness, a foreign body sensation, or even excessive tearing in your eyes? If so, you are not alone. It is estimated that over 40% of the population experience these symptoms and can get relief from occasional or chronic dry eye syndrome. Dr. Ostrander will evaluate and prescribe the correct brand of artificial tear or medication that can bring you long term comfort.
