Did you know…

Our eyes are not designed for continually peering at monitors and tiny phone screens. Protect your eyes from eye strain with the 20/20/20 rule: every 20 minutes, take 20 seconds to look at something 20 feet or further away to help your eyes readjust. Ask us about lens coatings to protect your eyes from glare.

A study by the American Optometric Association, the Optical Laboratories Association and The Vision Council found 45% of glasses ordered online had incorrect prescriptions or safety issues, 29% had at least one lens that failed to meet the prescription, and 25% of children’s lenses failed impact resistance testing.

Remember the online controversy about the dress being blue and black or white and gold? Depending on the light in which you looked at the photo, and an optical phenomenon called colour constancy, your brain compensates for shadows in an image by interpreting colours in shadow as being lighter.
