Eye Care Essentials

Your Vision Is Our #1 Priority

Yes, we’ll help you select a pair of eyeglasss and frames that you’ll be really happy with. But its also very important for us that we do a great job in supporting the recommendations of your Eye Doctor about your eye health.

Each of us has five senses: the eyes to see, the nose to smell, the ears to hear, the tongue to taste, and the skin to touch.  But many people consider their vision the most important of their sensing organs.  This perspective isn’t surprising as, according to Carl Zeiss (a German manufacturer of optical systems), 80 percent of our impressions of the world around us are perceived by our sense of sight.

Given how important our eyesight is to the way we function daily, attending to our visual health regularly is crucial. What’s more, the health of the eye can reveal a number of clues about overall health. An eye doctor performing a comprehensive examination can sometimes be the first health-care provider to detect certain systemic diseases. That’s why regular eye exams are so important, even if you currently have 20/20 vision.

While your Eye Doctor should be your primary resource for medical advice, clicking on each of the topics to the left will answer many of the typical questions that we are regularly asked about essential eye care.
