  • 45% of these occur in children under the age of 14
  • 90% of these are preventable

Polycarbonate is a lens material that is widely used for shatter-and-impact resistant lenses, and when combined with sturdy frame materials, makes for formidable eye protection.

There are hazards of sunlight and bright light that are harder to understand; namely, ultraviolet rays (UV) and Glare (extreme brightness). Protecting your eyes from these distracting, even dangerous elements is equally important to eye protection.

To our valued patients:

The CDC, AOA, and the Illinois Optometric Association has advised that all routine eye care be postponed immediately.

In light of these recommendations and to keep our patients as safe as possible, we are reducing our services to urgent eye problems and ongoing potentially sight threatening conditions ONLY

We will have a staff member in the office from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm to answer questions, place contact lens orders and schedule urgent/emergency patients by phone.

Thank you for your understanding, please keep your families safe at this time.
