Healthy Sight

When we’re talking about healthy sight, we’re really talking about the immediate, short and long-term care and protection of your vision—the sense that provides you with a unique and personal view of the world. So much of what we learn, what we experience, and what we enjoy comes to us through our eyes.

Healthy Sight isn’t a slogan; it’s a way of life that enhances your everyday vision while preserving the well being of your eyes. It means getting regular checkups. Eye health means wearing the correct prescription if corrective lenses or contacts are needed. It means knowing how to protect your eyes from glare, from the sun’s harmful UV rays, from the hazards of extreme activities. Having healthy eyes understanding how lifestyle, diet and personal habits can affect the way you see—today and tomorrow.

Healthy sight means protecting your children’s vision as well.

Healthy body. Healthy habits. Healthy eyes. Healthy sight.

Your eyes are a part of your body. Some of the same healthy habits that protect your general health also promote healthy eyesight:

  • Eating a balanced diet rich in fiber, fruits and vegetables
  • Drinking water to hydrate your body and your eyes
  • Not smoking, and avoiding long-term smoke exposure
  • Wearing ultraviolet (UV) protection
  • Considering appropriate vitamin supplements

Antioxidants such as vitamins C and E and carotenoids such as Lutein and Zeaxanthin have shown some promise in research studies at reducing the risk and progression of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Additional eye health reminders.

Research shows a surprising number of healthy sight habits go overlooked, like fully treating diagnosed eye problems with proper medication when prescribed. That means following the directions to the letter until the medicine is gone.

Also remember to share any current medication prescription information with your eye doctor, as there may be unwanted visual side effects when mixing eye medicine with other prescriptions.

You’d be surprised how many of us admit to working in low light or poor lighting situations—be sure to utilize proper, even lighting when reading or doing work that requires concentration. And adjust your computer screen lighting to fit your environment.

Both glare and UV radiation present particular visual hazards and dangers. Take the time to understand how to minimize both, with protective lenses or lens products that have glare reduction and 100% UV blockage built-in.

There’s more—much more—to consider if you truly wish to commit to healthy sight. Considerations you’ll find completely explained throughout the EyeGlass Guide.

COVID-19 (coronavirus)

As the facts and situation around COVID-19 (coronavirus) continue to evolve, and in compliance with the recommendations by the CDC, our practice is suspending non-essential or non-urgent eye care effective immediately until further notice.

We believe by taking these extraordinary precautions along with other health care facilities, collectively we can make a difference in helping control the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We recognize the gravity of these extreme measures and remain sensitive to your eye care priorities.

We will be available by phone, voicemail, text and email on a limited basis.We understand that some of you may have eyeglass and/or contact lens orders to pick up.  We will be able to ship these orders to you at your request.

We encourage you to wear your eyeglasses as much as possible especially if your contact lens supply is running low or if you are in need of contact lenses you may visit our online store at http://www.yourlens.com/ceciliaperezod to place an order.  As a courtesy to our loyal patients, we will extend contact lens prescription for 2 months and ship them to you at no charge. In the meantime, please do not over wear your contact lenses for your own safety. Lately there has been misleading information in the press, regarding the use of contact lenses during the COVID-19 spread.  The American Academy of Optometry released this statement regarding contact lens wear: To prevent contact lens infections of all kinds: bacterial, viral, and fungal, contact lens wearers must:

  1. Wash hands thoroughly, at least 20 seconds, with soap and water, and dry hands completely.
  2. Use daily disposable contact lenses if possible.
  3. If solutions are required, use them appropriately. Specifically, do not re-use solutions.
  4. Replace cases monthly or more frequently. Rinse, wipe, and air dry contact lens cases every day.
  5. Do not wear contact lenses when you are ill.

If you have a medical eye emergency ​please call 911 or go to the nearest urgent care facility.Thank you for your trust and understanding during these challenging times.  We always appreciate your loyalty and support!

Stay safe and healthy.
