FY EYE! All About Progressive Lenses
Progressive lenses are an amazing piece of vision enhancement technology, allowing multiple vision fields to be incorporated into a single lens without any clear distinction between the fields. The focal point in the lenses progressively and seamlessly changes from far to mid-range to near: you simply raise your gaze to clearly see far objects, look through the middle of the lens to see mid-range objects, and lower your gaze to focus on objects close to your face.
Unlike traditional bifocals or trifocals, there are no visible lines separating the different fields of a progressive lens. Your eyes are seen clearly through progressive eyewear, and there are no "lens lines" to distract your vision.
If you're interested in making the seamless transition to progressive lenses, come see us at 10/10 Optics today!

FY EYE! Reduce Your Risk of Digital Eye Strain
The easiest way to reduce risk of digital eye strain when working at a computer or using a smart phone or tablet is to follow what many optometrists and ophthalmologists call the "20-20-20" rule:
Every 20 minutes, look away from your screen and view an object that's at least 20 feet away for 20 seconds.
This simple technique has two effects -- it relaxes eye muscles that keep your eyes focused when viewing close objects, which reduces eye fatigue, and it stimulates you to blink your eyes, which reduces dry eye symptoms.
Other things you can do to reduce your risk of digital eye strain include:
Blinking your eyes fully after each page view.
Increasing the size of the font on your screen.
Increasing your device's brightness and/or contrast settings.
Using a device with a higher resolution screen.
Making sure your device is at least 10 inches from your eyes.
If you're experiencing eye strain or other vision problems, make sure to book an exam with Dr. Rozenberg at 10/10 Optics ASAP!

FY EYE! 3 Tips For Wearing Contacts in Winter
1. Keep eye drops handy! Between the chapping cold outside and the desert-dry heat inside, your eyes are much more likely to dry out, which can lead to extra discomfort (and even eye infections) in contact-wearers.
2. Make sure you change out your contacts regularly! By swapping your lenses on time, they are better able to conduct oxygen, reduce irritation, and increase comfort.
3. Come see Dr. Rozenberg here at 10/10 Optics if you're having issues with your eyes or contacts lenses during the winter months. Dr. Rozenberg can prescribe contact lenses which you can swap out more frequently, contacts that are more appropriate for dry eyes, or even prescription eye drops if necessary.

FY EYE! New Year, New You - How An Eyewear Makeover Works
Looking to actualize more of your amazing potential in 2015? Ready to take on the challenge of uncovering a better you? Would you believe that something as "simple" as an Eyewear Makeover at 10/10 Optics could help with that?
Research in motivational psychology has shown that making positive changes to a person's appearance can be a powerful motivator for that person to make positive changes in other areas of their life. As self-perception changes positively, self-esteem and self-efficacy increase, and consequently so do personal productivity and motivation.
Our opticians here at 10/10 Optics are highly trained and skilled not just in the science of eyewear, but in the art of eyewear -- the art of helping you to see yourself in a whole new way!
