When most people think of the eye, they think of the colored ring in the center (the iris), the black circle in the middle of the iris (the pupil), and the white of the eye (the sclera). If you look more closely, you can see a clear, round dome, like a watch crystal, covering the iris and pupil. This is the cornea (KOR-nee-uh), which helps focus light rays that enter the eye.
Did you know these?
May is National High Blood Pressure Education Month.
High blood pressure is also known as hypertension. Hypertension occurs when your blood pressure rises and stays above normal over a period of time.
Hypertension is often related to atherosclerosis, which is the buildup of plaque in blood vessels, often associated with an increase in your "bad" cholesterol.

To protect your eyes from harmful solar radiation, you should wear sunglasses that block 100 percent UV whenever you are outdoors in daylight. Your eyes need protection even on cloudy days because the sun's damaging UV rays can penetrate cloud cover.
The focus for us is on YOU!
See your best and look even better with our frame collection!
Why do I need sunglasses? Sunglasses can help your eyes in two important ways. They help filter light and they protect against the damaging rays of the sun. Good sunglasses reduce glare and filter out 99 to 100% of ultraviolet (UV) rays. They should be comfortable and protect your eyes without any distortion.
A great idea!
Many eye problems and diseases can be treated if caught early. To make sure you keep seeing clearly, get a comprehensive dilated eye exam. An eye care professional will examine your eyes for signs of vision problems or eye diseases. It's the best way to find out if you need glasses or contacts, or are in the early stages of a serious but treatable eye disease.
A diet that includes fresh leafy green vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fish, and other foods containing vitamins C, D, and E, lutein, zeaxanthin, and omega-3 fatty acids may contribute to better vision.

Perform Amsler Grid Tests at Home!
The Amsler grid is a square with intersecting horizontal and vertical lines. This test can detect early signs of AMD and can help monitor changes in vision after diagnosis. If the lines appear to you to be wavy, dim, irregular, or fuzzy, contact your eye care specialist.
January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month, an important time to spread the word about this sight-stealing disease. Make an appointment TODAY to get a comprehensive dilated eye exam! There's no cure for glaucoma, but early treatment can often stop the damage and protect your vision.
Our eyes are amazing!
Glaucoma is the condition of the eye where your optic nerve gets damaged. In most cases, glaucoma is caused when people get really really high blood pressures.

Did you know?
It doesn't only sting and itch if you get snow in your eyes, but those eye chips can sometimes even damage your cornea as well.
Keep in mind during these cold and gloomy days you're still exposed to UV light that causes you to age faster and can give you skin cancer.
Hydration is key! One of the best ways to fight dry eyes during winter is to keep yourself appropriately hydrated. Experts recommend drinking at least 8 glasses of water every single day to do so. Enough moisture in your eyes means fewer problems for them to run through the cold season.
