Tips for healthy eyes!


Tips for healthy eyes:

Did you know that smoking can increase your risk of cataracts and macular degeneration?

Using old eye makeup and not removing your eye makeup before bed can lead to infection-causing bacteria. You should replace your eye makeup every three months. 

Wear safety goggles when mowing, weed whacking, edging or using any other landscaping tools to protect your eyes from flying debris. 

Wear sunglasses that protect against harmful UV rays to prevent cataracts and skin cancer on your eyelids. 

If you are diabetic do not skip your visits to the ophthalmologist to prevent blindness.

Computer Vision Syndrome


Computer vision syndrome is eyestrain due to computers, ipads, iphones, ipods, etc. The symptoms are blurred vision, itchy eyes, burning eyes, sensitivity to bright light and eye fatigue. People blink less when working on a computer and this dries out their eyes. This can cause the itchy or burning feeling.

When people read a book they tend to hold it farther away than when they read from a hand held device so the eyes have to adjust to things up closer. Computers and hand held devices can be adjusted with making fonts larger, and increasing or decreasing brightness which can help.

Ioptics specializes in computer lenses.  

How to clean and dry your glasses!


Dawn dish soap can clean your dishes, get oil off of birds feathers and can get the oil off of your glasses! It's important to rinse your lenses under water to get the dirt, dust, pollen, or salt from the air off. Wiping your lenses without rinsing them with water can cause these elements to scratch them. If you only use water and then dry them, the oil spots from your fingers just get spread around the lenses. Use a small amount of Dawn dish soap on your lenses to get the oil off and dry them with a soft cotten cloth or cleansing cloth. Drying them with a tissue, paper towel, napkin or toilet paper can scratch your lenses. Clean your glasses daily.

Did the dog eat your glasses?


Did the dog eat your glasses? You are not alone. This is a common thing. Puppies especially with all their teething love to chew. Your glasses get your bodies natural oil on them and the dog can pick up that scent. Some dogs can be spiteful when left alone for too long. Protect your glasses by keeping them in a hard case when you are not wearing them and come get your new glasses at Ioptics in Sarasota. We offer a $30 insurance for accidents like this with the purchase of a frame and lenses. The insurance is good for one year and allows you to get your new frame and lenses for half off. (Some restrictions may apply on insurance)
