Boo!

Are you ready for Halloween?

Halloween
We want to help make sure you and your scary little ghosts and goblins stay safe this year. Here are a few tips to keep your eyes as sharp as a cat’s whether you’re trick-or-treating or heading out to a monster bash:

  • Avoid big, heavy masks, or make sure you can see clearly through the eye slots.
  • Don’t leave your specs at home! After all, witches and vampires are just as scary in glasses.
  • If you’re planning on wearing costume contacts, make sure they are prescription. Non-prescription costume contacts can cause serious eye damage.

Most importantly, make sure you have a SPECtacular Halloween!

Protect Your Peepers: Three tips for preventing eye injuries.

Did you know that every year about 2.5 million people visit the emergency room with an eye injury? What about the fact that 44.7% of those injuries happen in the home?

Many people think that eye injuries occur most often on the job in places like factories or car shops. However, the truth is you’re more likely to sustain an eye injury in your home. Why? Because you don’t expect it!

Eye safety

Luckily, here are three great tips for preventing eye injuries:

  1. Read the directions on household items, such as cleaning supplies and chemicals. Many of these products can be hazardous to your vision if they get into your eyes. Depending on the chemical, you should try to wear goggles, keep a distance and wash your hands thoroughly after use. If you do accidentally get something in your eye, think back to high school chemistry class and immediately find a sink and splash (don’t rub) water into your eyes to rinse the chemical out.
  1. Wear the appropriate eyewear. Whether you’re mowing the lawn, remodeling your home, working on your car, gardening or using a deep fryer, you never know when something sharp or hot could come flying your way.
  1. Don’t forget your sunglasses! One of the most common methods for hurting your eyes is simply by forgetting your sunglasses at home. Not only can the sun damage your vision, it can actually sunburn your eyes. In order to make sure you don’t forget your sunglasses, try to leave a pair in your car and another in your home.

The Latest in Eye Care Technology

Gregor Eye Care

Over the past century eye care technology has steadily been progressing. In fact, most of the eye care technologies as we know them today would hardly be recognizable to an eye doctor in 1915. These technologies aren’t just for handing out lens prescriptions, they are to help people across the world keep their eyes healthy so they can live higher quality lives.

For example, in the United States alone there are 2.2 million people suffering from Glaucoma, a disease that often leaves people partially or completely blind. Out of those 2.2 million, only half of them actually know they have the disease! Gregor Eye Care is working to change that by incorporating the latest technologies in eye care to ensure Dr. Gregor is not only able to keep her patients’ eyes seeing clearly, but also to prevent debilitating conditions and diseases like Glaucoma.

Schedule an appointment to get a first hand glimpse at Gregor Eye Care’s state-of-the-art eye care technology, and help yourself prevent any future eye health problems today.

4 ways to prepare your eyes for Autumn.

fall

Autumn is the only season of the year that sneaks up on us. Everyone’s out enjoying their summer, then BAM! Summer is over and fall is setting in. But don’t fall into fall… That is unless you’re falling into a pile of leaves. But if that’s not the case it’s much better to approach this time of year with a little preparation.

Even though autumn officially started last week, here are 4 ways to help make sure you have a healthy season:

  1. Don’t put away your sunglasses. Just because summer is over and the temperature is gradually dropping, it doesn’t mean the sun is off duty. Sunglasses are necessary all four seasons of the year to help protect your eyes from those harmful, vision damaging UV rays.
  1. Take control of your autumn allergies. Whether your seasonal allergies include an itchy nose or terrible migraines, make sure you’re ready to take on the monster. In addition to picking up a prescription or over the counter allergies meds, make sure you keep your home clean, wash your face regularly and stay inside as much as possible on those dreaded high pollen days.
  1. Pick up some over the counter eye drops. Eye drops can be a great for beating the itchy, watery eyes that can come with allergies, but even if you aren’t an allergy sufferer it is a good idea to have some around. Why? Because as the weather becomes colder, it also becomes dryer, drying out everything else in the process… including your eyes!
  1. Invest in some night time driving glasses. As most of you have already noticed, the days are once again getting shorter. Soon we’ll be heading work and heading home in the dark. Help yourself stay safe on the road by investing in a pair of night time driving glasses. Stop by Gregor today to find out more about these important lenses.

Fall is one of our FAVORITE times of the year, but if you aren’t prepared for it, it can be miserable. Want more tips about protecting your eyes this fall? Schedule an appointment with Dr. Gregor today by calling (913) 685-0212.
