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!

Now that the summertime is here it’s time to keep your eyes protected from the sun and other warm weather dangers.

Here are some tips to safe in the sun:

  1. Buy glasses that offer proper UV protection. If your glasses don’t have 100% UV protection to guard your eyes from the dangers of UV exposure, they may be resulting in more harm than benefit.  It’s important to keep in mind that 100% UV protection doesn’t necessarily cost more – plenty of cheaper brands give complete UV blockage.
  2. Opt for larger sunglasses. When it comes to UV defense, think big. When possible, opt for shades with wraparound frames and wide lenses.
  3. Wear a wide brimmed hat or visor. While glasses are a great first defense, a large hat will give you the extra defense you need to shade your eyes from harmful UV rays.
  4. Wear sunglasses when the sun is hidden. Even when the sun is behind the clouds, UV can still reach your eyes and cause damage. Don’t be fooled by a cloudy day.
  5. Invest in a sturdy sunglasses case. Sunglasses can easily be scratched, broken or lost. It’s worthwhile to keep them in a closed case to minimize mishaps.
  6. Drink enough. Consuming at least 2 liters of water each day will not only keep you and your skin hydrated but it will ensure your eyes are hydrated as well.
  7. Stay away from the afternoon sun. Stay inside as much as possible especially between the hours of 11 am and 3 pm when the strength of the sun and ultraviolet radiation in the atmosphere are at a peak.
  8. Consider polarized lenses. Since they reduce glare from reflective surfaces, polarized lenses are great for water-based activities and driving.
  9. Use swimming goggles to safeguard your eyes from bacteria in the water or chemicals. Since the sun’s rays reflect off water you can increase exposure to UV so get goggles that block UV as well.
  10. Be careful not to apply sunscreen too close to the eyes as it can enter the eye and burn.
