Even more reason to wear your shades!!

We've heard about seasonal affective disorder, in the winter where people get depressed because of less sunlight, but now that it's sunny, one research group says all the extra sun can make you mad if you're not careful. Summer is officially underway and if you're hoping to finally kick your winter and spring blues, don't forget your sunglasses. That's because people who squint and frown more, are unhappier. That's according to Smithsonian Magazine, where researchers surveyed people walking on a boardwalk with and without sunglasses.

Ready for Progressives?

Why progressive lenses? You may be maturing, but "mature" doesn't have to mean "old." If you are in your 40s (or older) and are having trouble reading fine print with your glasses, progressive lenses offer a younger-looking appearance and other advantages over the lined bifocal lenses your parents wore. Progressive lenses, sometimes called "no-line bifocals," eliminate the visible lines of traditional bifocals and trifocals and hide the fact that you need reading glasses.

Donating your Rebate Form Could Help Change a Life!

Want an easy way to help people in developing countries get an eye exam and glasses? If you wear contact lenses made by CooperVision, during 2012 you can specify that all or part of your rebate be donated to the global eye charity Optometry Giving Sight. This organization sponsors programs that can provide an eye exam and eyewear to a poor person for just $5. For many people, correcting their vision is life-changing, since it enables them to go to school and work to support their families. All you have to do is submit your rebate, and you will have an opportunity to designate a donation.

New Progressive Lens Aims to Keep You "InTouch" With Your Hand-Held Devices

 Smart phones and digital tablets are useful and fun, but not if you can't read the screen comfortably. That has been a problem for people who wear progressive lenses, and it's why Shamir has introduced its new InTouch progressive lens.Depending on the size of the screen, most people tend to view hand-held devices high and close to their eyes — higher and closer than they would normally hold a book or newspaper.

The Importance of an Annual CL Fit..

Contact lens prescriptions expire for the same reasons that medical prescriptions expire. Any time you are using a medical product, you should follow up with your doctor at least once per year to identify possible complications. The FDA considers contact lenses medical devices. In 2004, a law was passed that set the expiration date of contact lens prescriptions at one year, or the minimum required by state law, whichever is greater. Just because your eyes and vision seem perfect, that may not actually be the case. Remember that a contact lens is a foreign body placed into your eye.
