EyeMax is so grateful for all our wonderful patients and the opportunity you have given us to care for your eyes this year!

Providing excellent care and convenience to our patients is a top priority for EyeMax. That's one of the reasons we have chosen to build our practice inside Walmart- you're just a step or two away from ordering glasses and contacts in the Vision Center.

We also understand that many of our patients prefer ordering online, so we've implemented a new program to make that process even easier! EyeMax has partnered with Dr. Contact Lens (https://portal.drcontactlens.com/) to provide a location where our patients can access their prescription at any time, and order contacts with just a few clicks. Once your prescription is finalized, it will be uploaded to the secure website where it will be accessible to you through text or email. All our patients with a current prescription will be have access to this resource. If you have insurance benefits that you need to use, we may be able to help you apply these benefits as well.

We hope this change makes your life just a little bit easier. Something we can all use in 2020! Please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 859-272-1422 if you have any questions. We’re happy to help!

As September marks Home and Sports Eye Safety Month, this post will focus on ways to keep your home safe for your eyes specifically in choosing toys that are safe for your children's eyes. Don't wait until it's too late to make sure your house doesn't pose any series dangers to your children's eyes.


In general, babies enter the world with an underdeveloped visual structure that grows as they get mature. As part of standard baby vision development, newborns can view objects only very close. A youngster's visual structure is constantly stimulated as he matures. Toys can be one of the easiest ways to stimulate children's vision. Nevertheless, it's important to remember that a large number of childhood mishaps occur in the house, many with toys.


What's the best way to avoid accidents? There are several precautions you can take when selecting toys for the home that are safe for your child's eyes.


First off, be sure toys with long handles - such as a pony stick- have rounded edges, and prohibit or monitor young children carefully if they are handling them. While blocks pose little danger for children of all ages, it's good to make sure the corners are blunted, in order to avoid eye or other bodily damage. It's a good idea to stay away from toys that shoot objects in the air, such as slingshots or dart guns. If you can't eliminate them altogether, then use of these toys should be monitored by a responsible grown-up. When allowing older children to play with a chemistry set or woodworking tools, make sure he or she wears protective glasses.


Is there anything else that can pose a problem in the home environment? Toys are actually just the beginning. As a parent, it's your task to go through your home and make sure there's nothing that could endanger your child's eyes. One of the most common threats is hazardous materials that haven't been locked up properly. If a child can access these chemicals their eyes are at great risk.


Although it's true that games and toys for children may not always be totally harmless, there are many wonderful playthings that can contribute to a child's eyesight. There are a number of age-appropriate toys for children that offer terrific ways to grow optical development. When buying toys for children, look for those that emphasize hand-eye coordination and will help youngsters to understand spatial relationships. It can also be a good idea to look on the Internet before making a purchase. Then you can do your best to make sure your purchase will protect your children and will enrich their optical development at the same time!
