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.

Our office will be closed to observe Boxing Day, Christmas and New Year's Day. Please plan accordingly and visit us for your end of year eyewear benefits and eyecare. Call us 844-906-3937. and let your friends know about us!
