We have been running this little promotion for a while now and decided to let everyone in on it. We track how many eye exams our doctors see each month and just to add to the fun we decided to make it interesting for our staff and reward our patients at the same time. We have a little tally marker in the front that the receptionists mark off after every check-in. It's fun to see our staff get excited for our patients. For every 100th patient that comes in we are giving a pair of movie tickets. Yes it's a small token, but everyone that's been our 100th patient has been just absolutely thrilled. We love keeping a smile on our patients face and making sure you walk away happy. Thank you for your continued support for our office and our company, we're very thankful for and value what you bring to our office.
If you've spent time at Dr. Bladh's office, you know what anti-reflective (A/R) coating is and does. Back in the early days of optometry, A/R coating was primarily used to get rid of glare when taking pictures and get a clearer view of the world through your lenses. Both solid reasons to commit to adding this product onto your glasses, but there were some flaws. Typically, the lenses were hard to keep clean and often times the coating would peel after several months so scientists went back to the lab and developed newer technology to combat those problems. After perfecting the anti-reflective product, laboratories started to add other benefits to the coating (insert blue-light filters). The most recent advancement has come with the recent COVID-19 pandemic as a way to defend your eyes from harmful blue light rays as well as BACTERIA! Yes you read that correctly; the new blue-light A/R coating has been ISO-certified as anti-bacterial technology. Sound like a gimm
Everyone seems to be staring at a screen these days, whether their computer, their smartphone or another digital device. The stress it puts on your eyes can cause a condition called "digital eye strain" (DES) or "computer vision syndrome" (CVS) . Symptoms include eye fatigue, dry eyes, blurred vision, headaches, neck and shoulder pain, red eyes, and eye twitching. How To Protect Your Eyes While You Work Below are a few things you can do to lower your risk or mitigate any discomfort associated with DES. 1. See your eye doctor for a comprehensive eye exam This is one of the most important things you can do to prevent or treat symptoms associated with computer vision syndrome. During your eye doctor’s appointment, make sure to speak with Dr. Bladh about your working habits, including the frequency and length of time you use a computer and other devices at work and at home. If you get a chance before you come, measure the distance between your eyes and your comp
Carrera has approached us with a promotion for their line of sunglasses and regular ophthalmic eyewear that we wanted to let everyone know about. The line has grown immensely over the past year and we are one of their larger accounts so they've asked if we wanted to participate. Of course we said yes! For each pair of Carrera brand sunglasses or eyeglasses sold they are giving a free bottle of cologne with each purchase. We're not sure how long this promo is going to last, but we've already sold a good portion of the supply that they've given us to go with it. We had a Facebook post last week about Carrera's parent company Safilo Group S.p.A. and their teaming up with Jimmy Choo on the Carrera line to come up with some amazing frames. Kit Harington from Game of Thrones actually endorsed the line with this featured frame below and no he is not included, but the cologne is. So if you want your man to look like Jon Snow (yes, please!) stop on by and t
