Eye Health means Protecting Your Eyes!

Eye health means protecting your eyes!  This video shows some amazing scenery.  Your ability to see is best served with maximum eye protection of your eyes.

UV rays may lead to serious health conditions including sunburn of the eyes, cataracts, macular degeneration and cancer.  Maui Jim has produced this video explaining this and shows you how their lenses block 100% of harmful UV rays.  Our office has written many times on the hazards of UV on facebook and in blogs.  I hope this message and prior ones we have written have helped people understand that their are differences between lenses that protect UV.  Many people pick up sunglasses from department stores or convenience stores that have UV stickers which don’t necessarily have full UV protection.

Skin Cancer

5-10% of all skin cancers occur around the eyes.  Full eye coverage sunglasses that wrap around are the most protective.  Maui Jim sunglasses have earned the Skin Cancer Foundaation Seal of Recommendation as an effective UV for your eyes and skin.

General Eye Comfort 

The sun’s brightness and glare interferes with comfortable vision and ability to see clearly can cause squinting and headaches.  Polarized sunglasses eliminate 99.9% of glare.  This reduces the impact of the sun’s brightness to relax your eyes.

Dark Adaption

Who would think that polarized lenses worn in the brightness would help you dark adapt in varying light conditions? Polarized lenses help your eyes light adapt when going from one extreme light condition to the next.

Blue Light Protection

Clear lenses and sunglasses should protect your eyes from harmful UV.  UV exposure to digital devices in and outdoors subjects us to internal eye damage.  Outdoors we are exposed to many levels and colors of UV light which can be absorbed by your lenses.  Blue color are clearer but blue light is shielded.  Schedule an appointment to have your eyes examined and learn about sunglass lens protection all year round.

Did you get sunglasses with a UV sticker on them?

Did you get sunglasses with a UV sticker on them?

Did you get sunglasses with a UV sticker on them?  Check this out!  Many people do have sunglasses which we call pickup sunglasses.  They are  usually are found in places like convenience stores, pharmacies and department stores.  People get them because they are convenient and they think they look good. The UV stickers say UVA and UVB protection so why not get an inexpensive pair? To the unknowing consumer, anyone would think that they were good sunglasses. You don’t have to spend alot of money on good sunglasses.

What people don’t know is that even clear plastic lenses in glasses have UVA and UVB protection without a tint.  In our office, many patients when told of the need for UV protection in their sunglasses, may say “I have a dozen sunglasses with that UV sticker on them.” These actually may do more harm than good. In fact if you add a tint to a clear lens without full UV protection it is more harmful to your vision.  Why?  Your pupil is fooled and gets larger in a darkened environment and lets more UV light into your eyes. Larger pupils allow more light into your eyes than smaller pupils. This may be worse in terms of eye health protection than if you didn’t wear any sunglasses at all.

This astounds people. Since the Spring and Summer seasons are upon us.  It is important to know what is safe for driving and protecting your eyes while outside so you don’t outlive your vision.  Even beyond the sunny months, harm caused by ultraviolet rays, including long-term problems, such as cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, and even cancer. The American Optometric Association (AOA) provides guidelines recommending the use of sunglasses, wearing a hat, and using sunscreen on the skin around the eyes.

Eyewear Gallery in Memphis, Tennessee with both Dr. Warren Johnson and Dr. Do Nguyen want our followers to understand Ultraviolet light better and it’s repercussions on both your vision and skin.  Below are some recent studies that confirm what we tell our patients and why we always recommend total UV protection for your eyes.

The Vision Council has issued its “2016 Vision Report.” which reveals that “three-quarters of Americans are worried about eye damage from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays, but only 31 percent actually take action to somehow protect their eyes” by wearing sunglasses. The report’s authors concluded, “Americans’ lax approach to sunglass use reveals that they are likely underestimating the danger of UV.”

Why Should You Read This?!  Are You Seeing Your Best with Cheap Sunglasses and Glasses?

Are you seeing your best with cheap sunglasses and glasses?  Be careful of cheap sunglasses that have that UV protective sticker on them.  They might not be UV protective.  Glasses: Buyer Beware:  Here is the TENTH and LAST  post of the 10 days and 10 reasons to explain what you should know to be careful about purchasing cheap glasses & sunglasses.

Reasons to avoid cheap glasses

Cheap eyeglasses and sunglasses can rob you of the opportunity to see and look your best — and fully protect your eyes for a lifetime of good vision.

You may see acceptably well with cheap glasses, are you really seeing your best and doing everything you can to protect your eyesight?

A knowledgeable optician can educate you about the latest advances in eyeglass lens technology which many times are not found in cheap sunglasses and glasses.  This includese the following in your lens technology:

Even if you choose only one or two of these premium products, it will help you come closer to seeing your absolute best and/or more fully protecting your eyes from injury and damage.

Budget-Stretching Tips When Buying Glasses

So what can you do if you or your family members need glasses and you want the best value possible?

Here are a few tips to help you stretch your budget and get all the benefits of high quality eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses:

  • Take advantage of your vision insurance benefits. Many people fail to use the vision insurance plans (such as VSP and EyeMed) that they are enrolled in as part of their benefits package at work. These plans essentially work like a gift card program — just show your card and you get significant discounts on eye care and quality eyewear. Your HR representative at work can help you locate a participating eye care provider.
  • Ask about bundles. Many optical stores provide a discount on premium eyewear products such as anti-reflective coating, photochromic lenses and progressive lenses if you purchase them as part of a bundled package. Ask your optician for details.
  • Know the terms and conditions of warranties. Premium eyewear can be a better value than cheap glasses if it comes with a warranty against lens scratches and frame materials and workmanship. Warranties are particularly valuable if you work or live in a harsh environment and for children’s eyeglasses. Ask your optician to explain the terms and conditions of warranties included with your eyeglasses and sunglasses.

Also, ask your eye care professional about possible discounts for multiple purchases, special promotions on specific frames and lenses, and financing plans for eyewear purchases to make quality eyewear more affordable.

Why Should You Read This?! I’ll buy 2 pairs and still save money! 10 Days 10 Reasons YOU NEED TO KNOW about Cheap Sunglasses!

“At this price, I’ll buy two pair of sunglasses and still save money” argument make sense?  Why Should You Read This?!  10 Days 10 Reasons about Cheap Sunglasses!

YOU should read this because you need to know what to look for when you get your sunglasses.  You may have heard people say “At this price I’ll get 2 pairs of glasses.”

Glasses: Buyer Beware:  Here is the NINTH post of the 10 days and 10 reasons SERIES to explain what you should know to be careful about purchasing cheap sunglasses.

Reasons to avoid cheap glasses

 

Does the “At this price, I’ll buy two pair of glasses and still save money” argument make sense?

The bargain basement price of some cheap eyeglasses and sunglasses makes it tempting to buy several pairs. But does it really make sense to spend money on something as important as eyewear when there’s a good chance it won’t be durable enough to last more than a few months?  They may last longer than that but you get the point about the type of materials the cheap eyewear is made of is not durable.

And what if the quality of your vision with cheap glasses and sunglasses isn’t as good as it should be? What do you do then?  We all have a budget limit.  We all want to know what we are paying for.  We don’t know the differences until we do our homework.  We will help you with the  homework and show and explain the differences in sunglasses when you come in.  Schedule an Appointment and have your eyes examined by our doctors.  www.EyewearGallery   Dr. Warren Johnson / Dr. Do Nguyen

Why Should You Read This?!  Will your cheap sunglasses be warranted for UV protection?

 

Will your cheap sunglasses be warranteed for UV protection?  Cheap glasses places and online retailers may have no warranty on their products.  Inexpensive manufacturers have to do a large volume of sales to offer inexpensive glasses and sunglasses.  These will have lesser quality because of cheaper materials used in manufacturering to keep their costs low to make a profit.  That is not a new concept in retail.  Like most anything will they be in business when you need something?

Glasses: Buyer Beware:  Here is the EIGHTH  post of the 10 days and 10 reasons to explain what you should know to be careful about purchasing cheap glasses & sunglasses.

Reasons to avoid cheap glasses

 

Can you be sure sellers of cheap glasses will be around tomorrow?  Do these sellers warranty their materials?  Do these sellers guarantee safe levels of UV protection? 

Warranties on eyeglasses and sunglasses are only as good as the reliability of the retailer who provides them. Can you really trust an online dealer, established or start-up to honor a warranty on their cheap glasses and sunglasses?  Your eye care professional should explain which trusted brands of sunglasses are the best.  Scratched eyes may be caused by a lack of UV protection from harmful rays.  We all need our sunglasses and glasses to have preferred visible light transmittance for outdoor activities and visual needs.
