We are re-opening Friday May 8, 2020. We are eager to get back to a routine. That means we are seeing patients for routine eye exams again.
The “new normal” routine in a doctors office is explained below:
1) You will have your temperature taken with a non-contact thermometer and sent home if above 99.9. 2) You will be asked some screening questions about your health and recent travel habits. 3) Our waiting room is sparse. There is nowhere to sit. So don’t bring companions. 4) Bring a mask and wear it over the nose and mouth.
We will be constantly cleaning and disinfecting around you and in front of you.
You will not be uncomfortable and you will get a safe exam, so feel relieved.
Glare is a distracting and sometimes dangerous excess of bright light, and can happen day or night. Glare can cause squinting, eye fatigue, and in extreme cases, even temporary blindness.
Did you know…
In daylight, glare can occur when walking indoors to outdoors, moving from shade to sunlight, even from reflected light off of surfaces like cars or sidewalks
At night, glare can occur from oncoming headlights while driving, or from bright reflections off of wet roads, even signs
Glare can impair visual comfort and visual quality, which can diminish healthy sight
Watch a short video about anti-reflection options:
Anti-reflective (AR) treatments are available for many lens products to help protect your eyes. AR treatments are proven to significantly reduce glare while increasing visual comfort.
Best of all? These types of lens treatments and materials, plus others like photochromics and polarized lenses, can often be bundled into one lens product for maximum versatility, as well as eye protection.
