Eye Care In Winter Wonderland

Jennifer S., an avid skier, asked us the following question at her recent eye health appointment at our Optometry Practice:

Question: How do I protect my eyes while skiing during the winter months?

Answer:

 

The greatest damage to eyes in the wintertime is Ultraviolet Light, particularly UV type ‘A’. Exposure to UV-A over time can lead to premature cataracts. Damage to the eye’s lens is cumulative and builds up quickly if one does not protect the eyes from this particular radiation. Also, glare from sunlight reflecting off the snow can be both blinding and damaging to the eyes.

Your best protection is to wear ONLY 100% UV-A Block Sunglasses and Ski Goggles. An objective way to find out about UV blocking is to use an instrument called an Ultraviolet Spectrophotometer (also called a “UV Meter“) which instantly analyzes UV blockage.

Visit our Practice today and have your sunglasses and ski goggles analysed with  our UV Meter (Free of Charge) for their true objective, UV-A protection ability. If your eyewear is not UV-A protective, it is doing you more harm than good!

Thanks very much for your good question Jennifer!

Canada is 144, but Your EYES are only OVER 40

When the Age Monster comes calling on baby boomers, he gradually and increasingly steals away your ability to read the fine print, because words become difficult to see up close. This “40-and-over” condition is called Presbyopia (“Prez-bye-opia”).

Fortunately, you have more options than ever before to deal with this problem. Reading glasses, whether Full Frames or Franklins (granny glasses) are one option. They work very well, but can be a nuisance to carry around constantly.

For some, Segmented Spectacle Lenses, specifically bifocals, trifocals, or occupational lenses with lines work very well. Others dislike the cosmetics of wearing “visible” bifocals. Continue reading

Choose the Right Sunglasses

Less than two weeks to summer, and we are all anxious to see more sun! Here are some timely tips on choosing your sunglasses:

You already know that lenses which provide 100% UV protection are an absolute must. Glass lenses give crisper vision. Poly-carbonate lenses may be ideal for summer (and winter) sports because of their safety feature. Plastic lenses may be lighter in weight, but they are prone to scratching.

Photosensitive lenses need about a minute to change from light to dark. Not good while driving since they do not work well behind the car’s windshield. Practical for outdoor summer days with alternating sunshine and cloudy days. Continue reading

Contact Lenses and Your Child

Question: “My daughter has been asking for contact lenses. At what age would this be appropriate?”

Answer: Children become suitable candidate for contact lenses when they are ready to accept the responsibility of ongoing care and maintenance involved with contact lenses wear.

It usually depends on the child’s temperament and sense of responsibility. Some can be ready by age 7, others may not be ready until age 10 or even later. Continue reading
