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.

We hope that you and your family have remained safe and healthy during this public health crisis. Due to social distancing, we will be limited at the number of patients we are able to see in a day. We appreciate your patience during this time.
What We Did To Prepare Our Office to Re-Open
When possible, please come alone to your appointment.
If you need to bring a companion to your appointment, we ask they wait in the car unless the patient is a minor.
When scheduling for children, please only bring the child that has a scheduled appointment.
Please wear a mask or suitable face covering as per state regulations.
Doctors and staff will be wearing masks.
There are protective face shields on our exam equipment. Sanitized exam lanes and equipment have always been our practice. Based on the CDC's latest recommendations, we have added extra precautions and additional steps specific to this pandemic.
Thank you for your patience. We will not only get through this, but we will emerge stronger after it!
