Beating the Blues…

We are all aware of the importance of protecting our eyes from Ultraviolet light year round. Quality wraparound sunglasses and a broad brimmed hat are the best defenses during outdoor activities. But did you know that there are equally harmful wavelengths in the visible spectrum that we are increasingly exposed to on a daily basis? Blue-light is scientifically recognized as harmful to the retina. LEDs used in smart phones, tablets and computer screens emit up to 30% blue light. The 415 to 455 nm range represents the greatest phototoxic risk to the health of important retinal cells in the macula and damage is likely due to cumulative exposure.

We now offer a complete line of ophthalmic lenses that goes beyond optical correction! Our selective photo-protective ophthalmic lenses filter out UV radiation and significantly attenuate harmful blue-violet light while permitting beneficial blue-turquoise light (responsible for mood, memory, wakefulness) to pass.

We look forward to providing you with spectacle lens technology that addresses all of your visual and ocular health needs.

  • We carry a large variety of top designer frames for both eyeglasses and sunglasses.
  • Whether or not you require vision correction, sunglasses can add an element of comfort and enhanced performance to your activities, while helping you look great. Most importantly, like sunscreen protection, they protect your eyes from the harmful effects of sun exposure, which can cause many irreversible ocular conditions.
  • Eyeglasses are more popular today than ever, despite the availability of contact lenses and vision correction surgery.
  • Get tips on caring for your lenses and frames and learn about the benefits of bifocals, progressives, high index lenses and prescription sunglasses.
  • Sports glasses, Protective eyewear, SCUBA diving... we can help you with glasses for your specific needs.
  •   Today’s eyeglass lens treatments make a real difference in what you see, and what you don’t see. Scratches, glare, ultraviolet rays—all are potential hazards to healthy sight that can be minimized or eliminated by a lens treatment.
