Protecting Your Eyes From Glare

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.

Last updated March 10, 2021: Your safety along with that of our staff and families is our number one priority. Our office will continue to follow CDC guidelines regarding COVID-19 and thus are still requiring our staff and visitors in our office to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status. In addition, we will keep our other protocols in place which include sanitizing between each patient with hospital grade disinfectant, limiting the number of patients in the office, and screening every visitor for COVID-19 symptoms/exposure. We are still asking that you please call to schedule an appointment time for all services to ensure we can accommodate you at your preferred time. Please understand that patients with appointments will be given preference to those without. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
