Eye Care For the New Year

The New Year is always a great time for new beginnings and new promises. This year, make “good eye care” one of your top resolutions to keep. Have a comprehensive eye examination to make certain

Youre seeing your best far away, up close and all distances in between,

Your eyes are working well together as a team, and,

Your eyes are healthy and free of blinding eye diseases like glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.

Take good care of your sense of vision, and dont leave it to chance. Get the care you deserve from the doctor you want, even if their name isnt on the insurance list. And, dont be fooled by discounted eye care deals that seem too good to be true. They usually are, and usually there are additional hidden charges.

Choose a doctor whos committed to helping you and who will perform a thorough exam for your needs. Ask questions and make certain theyre answered to your satisfaction.

If you need vision correction, there are lots of eyeglass frame options to choose from. Eyeglass frames come in all shapes, styles, materials, and prices. Choose a frame that fits your face and vision prescription. Some eyeglass prescriptions dont fit well in all frames. Color, size, and shape all impact how a frame looks on your face. A good optician will help you decide whats best for you.

Eyeglass frames are not cheap, and can be very expensive. Newer titanium frames are more durable, extremely light-weight and stylish. To lessen the blow of any “sticker shock,” ask yourself what you wear every waking hour of every day for one to two years or more.

Eyeglasses absorb a lot of abuse every day, month, and year of their lifetime. They provide you good functional vision, plus they rest on your face, the first thing a person notices when speaking to you. Make certain you choose a frame that complements your appearance. An eyeglass frame that you really like, but costs $50.00 more than a lesser appealing and lesser quality frame breaks down to six cents extra per day over the course of two years. If you could look and feel better about your appearance with a better quality frame for six cents a day, would you want that? As a preacher on the radio says, “not a sermon, just a thought.”

Start your year off by seeing your best and looking your best. When it comes to quality eye care, quality eyeglasses, and improved face appeal, choose wisely. Have a comprehensive eye examination from a doctor you trust. Sometimes paying a little more up front with no hidden costs is your better and less expensive option in the long run.
