It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

optical-2-300x200

It’s only a month to that very special time of the year! Each holiday season, however, thousands of children and adults as well, end up in hospital emergency rooms because of eye-related injuries. A little prevention goes a long way.

Toy Shopping: Avoid pellet guns, spray-guns, and spring-loaded toys. They are dangerous and can cause serious eye injuries. Buy age-appropriate toys as suggested by the manufacturer.

Driving Tips: As winter weather approaches, slow down! At 100km/hr, you lose 25% of your peripheral vision. This makes it difficult for you to see other drivers at your side or at the rear.

Winter Is So Bright…You’ve got to wear Shades: Bundle up and take your good quality sunglasses with you. UV rays can contribute to cataracts and macular degeneration.

He Shoots…He Scores! It’s hockey season again. Wear a proper CSA-Certified face protector at all times. It will save your eyesight too.
