Colorado Eye Doctors Advise Against Buying Discontinued Frames

discontinued frames
There is a good chance that you, like many people out there, tend to look for the best deals, especially on higher ticket items. Sometimes this means settling for last year’s model.

But there are other categories, however, where the risk of buying discontinued models can be much greater, and one of those is eyeglass frames. Many outlet stores... Read More

Colorado Eye Doctors: Quality Frames Worth the Extra Cost

When it comes to eyeglass frames, you truly get what you pay for. While there are a lot of fashionable and utilitarian frames available at discount prices, many are made with inferior materials and manufacturing practices that can lead to both durability and comfort issues. The average frame may have up to 17 individual components, from the nose pads to the temple tips, which in a low quality frame can be translated into 17 potential points of failure. Despite our best intentions, our glasses sometimes take a beating and, one... Read More

Denver Eye Doctor Recommends Retinal Imaging to Determine Stroke Risk

Poets say that eyes are the windows to the soul. That may never change, but the more research that comes out about optometry, the more Denver eye doctors there are who claim that eyes are the windows to the body. Recent medical research has associated signs of high blood pressure in retinal imaging to strokes, which will help pave the way for better predicting and preventing these life-threatening events. Strokes are the world’s second-highest cause of death (first being Ischaemic heart disease, the most common trigger for heart attacks), and... Read More

Colorado Eye Doctor Recommends Retinal Imaging for Your Eye Exam

At the Optician
Any comprehensive eye exam needs to include a close look at the retina, which is located at the back of the eye, to screen for abnormalities or disease. The sensitive tissue that makes up the retina is susceptible to a variety of conditions that can ultimately lead to partial loss of vision or even complete blindness. Early detection of any retinal abnormality is critical. Previously, this screening was done by dilating the pupils, which enables optometrists to peer into the back of the eye.  But most of us find the... Read More
