Director of Photography Bryan Sarkinen was shooting a video at 10/10 Optics for a cable show makeover segment. He said 'What do you think would look good on me?" Voila, an instant eyewear makeover. He loved it!
Too much sun exposure can increase your risk for eye problems, such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. How can you protect your eyes?
To protect your vision, wear sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays. When in the sun, wear a hat along with your sunglasses. For more tips on protecting your eyes from the sun, watch this video from the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
10/10 Optics offers a variety of prescription sunglasses that can help you protect your eyes from sun damage. To find out about the styles and services we offer in New York City, call (888) 508-4018.
Eye exams are an important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Adults should have their eyes examined regularly to screen for problems such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. Children should also have their eyes examined to check for lazy eyes and vision problems. If you have a family history of vision issues, your doctor may recommend more frequent eye exams. Here are some of the components of a comprehensive eye exam:
By moving an object in front of you and having you follow it with your eyes, your doctor can analyze the movement of your eyes. This test screens for weakness in the muscles around your eyes and any irregular movements that your eyes may make.
The visual acuity test is composed of letters printed on a page that become progressively smaller and harder to read. Sitting at a distance, you will be asked to read the letters until you are no longer able to clearly see them. You will cover each eye to test the visual acuity of each.
A retinal examination is also called an ophthalmoscopy. Using a device called an ophthalmoscope, your doctor will examine the back of your eye to look for abnormalities in your retina, optic disk, and blood vessels.
Your doctor may use the applanation tonometry test or the non-contact tonometer test, which is commonly known as the “puff of air” test. The non-contact tonometer is painless and does not require any anesthetic drops, whereas you will receive drops to numb your eyes before an applanation tonometry test.
