Glare is a distracting and sometimes dangerous excess of bright light, and can happen day or night. Glare can cause squinting, eye fatigue, and in extreme cases, even temporary blindness.
Did you know…
In daylight, glare can occur when walking indoors to outdoors, moving from shade to sunlight, even from reflected light off of surfaces like cars or sidewalks
At night, glare can occur from oncoming headlights while driving, or from bright reflections off of wet roads, even signs
Glare can impair visual comfort and visual quality, which can diminish healthy sight
Watch a short video about anti-reflection options:
Anti-reflective (AR) treatments are available for many lens products to help protect your eyes. AR treatments are proven to significantly reduce glare while increasing visual comfort.
Best of all? These types of lens treatments and materials, plus others like photochromics and polarized lenses, can often be bundled into one lens product for maximum versatility, as well as eye protection.

Below are the safety protocols that have been put in place for all visiting patients:
All equipment is cleaned with 70% isopropyl alcohol before and after each use. Examination chairs are disinfected using a virucidal spray before and after each patient. All high touch surfaces are constantly disinfected with virucidal solution.
A protective plastic shield has been installed at the front check in area.
Upon arrival each patient will need their temperature checked with a non-contact thermometer and blood oxygen level taken with a pulse oximeter.
Each morning staff will also undergo temperature and blood oxygen screenings.
We will use our online check-in form as well as requiring any insurance cards or documents to be sent to us via text/email.
All payments can be made with credit card by phone.
All visitors will be required to wear a face covering or mask at all times. You will not be allowed to enter without wearing one.
All pick-ups, adjustments, and other visits will require an appointment time. This is needed so that we know when to expect you and can distance you from anyone else.
We will schedule gaps in between each patient to avoid any overlap between patients. Please come at your scheduled time. If you arrive too early you may have to wait in your car. If you arrive too late for us to perform the necessary tests for your exam you may have to be rescheduled.
A maximum of 2 people will be allowed into the office.
Frames that are tried on must be put into a separate box. Frames are disinfected by saturating in a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution for a minimum of 10 minutes, dried, and then stored for 3 days before being put on display.
