No parent likes the thought that their child may be struggling in life due to a preventable issue like vision correction care but it is a real concern with children of all ages. Here are a few signs to look out for your child to make sure they have the ultimate in eye health for their everyday lives:

  • If you find your child squinting or tilting their head a lot to see when reading. Or if they aid themselves with a pointed finger or lose their place excessively. These symptoms could attribute to many vision problems that are in need of correcting.
  • If your child is always wanting to sit close- for watching television, close to the front of class to see teacher best or pulling very close up to the computer. If you find your child doing this type of behavior over and over- they could definitely need an eye exam.
  • If your child complains of frequent headaches, eye strain, fatigue or rubs their eyes a lot. This could be indicative of eye strain your child is going through daily.
  • If you notice excessive and additional signs of clumsiness or running into walls or missing steps– this could be more than their ever growing motor skills this could be an eye issue as well.

Many issues face a child when trying to accommodate their eyes when in need of glasses- so just keep in mind of these signs so your child can have the best options for their vision.

Transitions Lenses- Which one do I choose?

   With the multitude of options Transitions lenses offers, it can be very difficult to determine which you might like best or be the best fit for you. This article will break down the differences between all the most popular transitions choices we offer at www.Simplyeyeglasses.com.

trans4transitionscom

 The most widely used Transitions lens is the  Chromea Transitions Signature 7 lens. This is their standard option that is their newest version of Transitions technology.  This lens is completely clear indoors and when you go outdoors and into the UV light rays from the sun they turn to a gray or brown sunglass or medium shade depending on the brightness of the light. This type of Transition technology is available in just about every type of progressive, single vision and bifocal lens we offer at Simply Eyeglasses. There is one drawback to this choice and that is it does not transition behind the windshield of a car due to the UV filters installed in most modern car windshields, which block the UV rays needed to change the lenses to a darker hue.                                                   

trans2If you are in need of your eyeglasses to change behind the windshield of a car, then you are in luck with other types of transitions. There are two types of Transitions that do react behind the windshield of a car. Xtra-Active transitions lenses change very rapidly in varying lights. Faster than any other transitions they are made for an active customer who needs a very quick changing lens. When indoors they have a slight tint of either brown, gray or gray-green-perfect for indoor use. When outdoors they change quickly to a darker shade but behind the windshield of a car they are not able to fully transition. If you are looking for a transition lens that changes fully behind the windshield of a car than look no further than Transitions Vantage. The newest and fastest growing in popularity- the Transitions Vantage lens does actually change fully behind the windshield of a car. Also, as the Vantage lens darkens it becomes a gray polarized sunglass when fully transitioned giving you the ultimate in protection against glare.

Any lens option you choose with Simply Eyeglasses is going to be the finest choice- but with choosing a Transitions lens you can say goodbye to switching from eyeglass to sunglass frequently, harmful UV rays/glare/blue light and be the utmost in lens technology.circle_259x259_everdaybrochure

It is pivotal to use up the funds to ensure you have proper eyewear for the upcoming year. Vision insurance plans primary goal is to lower your out-of-pocket cost for eye exams, contacts and prescription eyewear. Some plans even offer discounted rates on vision correction surgery. Each provider has a  different plan and a wide range of benefits, it is always important to know exactly what your eye insurance covers before looking into purchasing glasses so you are aware of exactly comes out of your pocket in the end.

Vision insurance policies can be different than other major medical policies. For example, many standard overall health insurance plans provide benefits after you pay a certain co-pay or a deductible. Vision insurance plans are known as discount or wellness benefit plans that offer benefits and discounts when you pay a yearly insurance premium. Sometimes you can also compare the same items you are wanting to purchase from your doctor to an online store and see that you can pay less due to the high mark up in a retail or doctor’s office environment with out using insurance. Since these benefits and discounts are based on an annual premium, they don’t roll over to the next year if not used. Keeping informed on your eye insurance plan and flexible spending dollars will ensure you get the most for your money when ordering eyewear or contacts.


 

 

What You Need to Know About Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a very common eye issue that effects most people but only a few are actually severe enough to need corrective lenses or procedures to correct the problem. Astigmatism will show itself while in the process of an eye exam. In your eye, light enters passing through the cornea. The cornea bends the light, and in unison with the prescription lens, focuses it onto tastigmatism1he retina and the macular at the back of the eye. The retina sends the signals to the brain and forms the image of what you are actually looking at.

In an eye with no astigmatism the cornea is round and shaped like a basketball. In an eye with astigmatism the cornea is shaped oblong- more like a football. Because of the football shape the light is dispersed in many places and noastigmatismt directly to the retina and the macular causing blurred vision at many varying distances. It is usually caused by genetics or injury to the eye and nothing that a great pair of glasses can’t fix.
