Protecting Your Eyes

tennis largeDid you know…

  • Nearly half of traumatic eye injuries relate to ball sports
  • 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.

Hello from Dr. Jurgensen & Associates

For the safety of our patients and staff, we will be postponing all non-emergency routine exams.

Our office will be limiting our hours during the next few weeks, but we will be here so you are able to pick up glasses and contact lenses, assist you in ordering contact lenses, and answer any questions you may have.

Thank you for your patience during this difficult time.

Our office hours for the next few weeks will be:

Monday: closed

Tuesday: 10 am-4 pm

Wednesday: closed

Thursday: 10 am-4 pm

Friday: closed

Saturday: 9 am-12 pm

We appreciate your support during this time.
