Frames Friday: New Line, Alexander Daas!



We are SO excited to introduce to you a new line we are now carrying, Alexander Daas. These frames are super modern and stylish and come in a wide range of styles. There are so many aspects of this brand that we are excited about, but we’ll outline a few here for you;

1. All Alexander Daas frames are designed using a real face. This is great because it helps ensure proper fit, they construct their frames keeping in mind that every face is different.

2. They have an entire line of petite frames. The choices for those with smaller faces can be rather slim, but not with Alexander Daas. They really aim to fill the void for petite faces.

3. The use only high quality Japanese and Italian acetate. An eyeglass wearer can absolutely tell the difference when wearing high quality acetate, and it will last.

4. They give a portion of all proceeds to charity. Each authorized dealer gets to choose where they will donate! Give the gift of sight and feel good about it, too.

In short, Alexander Daas frames are modern, stylish twists on classic designs. Interested in getting fitted for a pair? Stop in or make an appointment!

Feast for Your Eyes

Feast for Your Eyes

Its that time of year – holiday parties, family celebrations – it all means plates full of foods that are most likely not the best for us. We all tend to splurge and eat a little more than usual during the holidays, so why not take the opportunity to pack a few eye-healthy foods into your diet and onto your plate?
Patients are always asking what they can do to keep their eyes healthy. A response they don’t often expect is to incorporate more eye-healthy foods into their diets. Below is a chart of some of the essential nutrients that specifically impact your eyes, along with the best foods that pack the biggest punch of each nutrient. Always check with your health practitioner before adding or changing your diet, specifically nutrients, at it may interact with medication.
Protecting your eyes and keeping them healthy is a lifelong process.  Along with diet, you can help maintain your best visual performance and decrease your risk of age-related eye changes by:
-maintaining healthy levels of lutein and zeaxanthin
-wearing sunglasses and hats when in sunlight (even in the winter!)
-examining your eyes annually
-discontinuing smoking
-watching your weight
-limiting alcohol intake
It’s never too late to start incorporating these healthier changes into your everyday life.  Great idea for New Year’s resolution!
