Protecting Your Eyes From Glare

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.

In response to the recent announcement of Governor Abbott’s Executive Order on the mask mandates, we would like to reinforce the importance of mask-wearing in our office as recommended by the CDC and the State and Federal Optometric organizations. All staff members, patients and guests will be required to wear a mask in our office even if vaccinated. Although we have been encouraged by the recent declining COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations as well as increasing vaccinations, it is essential to continue our safety efforts to help stop the spread and reduce transmission as new COVID-19 variants spread across our communities.

Our top priority is the safety of our team members, patients and their families. Thus, we will continue to enforce all of our existing COVID-19 prevention protocols by diligently disinfecting all surfaces, practicing hand hygiene, socially distancing and wearing a mask in the office. We truly appreciate your support and understanding as we protect our employees, patients and communities.
