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!
During your Eyewear Makeover, we evaluate your individual facial features - smile, cheekbones, facial shape, nose, eyebrows, skin tone, and more - as well as your hair color, haircut, and your unique personality, to pull customized suggestions from our huge collection of designer frames that bring out the best in you!
Take a look at our Eyewear Makeover Gallery for a preview of what we at 10/10 Optics can do for you, then come visit us and get started on achieving all your goals for 2015!

A new report from the Center for Disease Control has found that millions of Americans are misusing their contact lenses-- misuse which has caused close to one million eye infections in the United States this past year.?
Unhealthy habits such as sleeping with contact lenses, failing to clean and replace lens solution frequently, and letting contact lenses get wet while swimming or in the shower, greatly increase a person's risk for keratitis, a painful infection of the cornea, which, in severe cases, can lead to blindness.
Keratitis isn't just bad for your eyes, it's bad for your wallet too -- this highly preventable infection adds $175 million to Americans' health bills each year.
To help prevent keratitis, the CDC recommends:
Washing hands with soap and water before touching contact lenses,
Removing contacts before bed, showering or swimming,
Rubbing and rinsing contacts in disinfecting solution after taking them out,
Rubbing and rinsing the contact lens case with contact lens solution, drying the case and keeping it upside down with the caps off,
Replacing lens cases at least every three months.
Need new contact lenses or contact lens supplies? Contact us at 10/10 Optics and we'll be happy to help you!

Most of us have heard of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism - many of us may even have these conditions - but how exactly do each of these fairly common conditions affect our eyes and vision?
Nearsightedness (also called myopia) is a condition where objects up close appear clearly, while objects far away appear blurry. With nearsightedness, light comes to focus in front of the retina instead of on the retina.
Farsightedness (also called hyperopia) is a common type of refractive error where distant objects may be seen more clearly than objects that are near. However, people experience farsightedness differently. Some people may not notice any problems with their vision, especially when they are young. For people with significant farsightedness, vision can be blurry for objects at any distance, near or far.
Astigmatism is a condition in which the eye does not focus light evenly onto the retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. This can cause images to appear blurry and stretched out.
