🕶️ Polarized lenses are engineered to diminish glare caused by sunlight reflecting off surfaces like water.

By filtering out horizontally aligned light waves, they allow only vertically oriented light waves to pass through. This reduction in glare enhances visibility, making it easier to detect objects such as an alligator in shallow water. Essentially, polarized lenses enhance contrast and clarity, enabling users to see beneath the surface and spot objects that might otherwise be obscured by glare!

New Year, New Trends in Eye Care! 🌟👁️

1️⃣ Digital Device Use & FDA Approvals: With increasing digital device use, it's crucial to address conditions like MGD (dry eye), blepharitis (inflammation), and DED (dry eyes). FDA approvals are pending for these areas. Tackling these issues could be valuable for everyone!

2️⃣ Myopia Management: Myopia management presents a major opportunity. FDA-approved prescriptions are potentially coming this year, promising a breakthrough in myopia awareness. Even big tech companies like Apple are addressing this concern by implementing eye distance feature (see our pinned FB post).

3️⃣ Virtual Reality (VR): Dive into innovative VR technologies! From glaucoma management tools like Smart System to quick misalignment testing with Neurolens, VR is transforming eye care. Explore VR devices that look like normal glasses, showing significant improvement in vision for patients with advanced AMD.

4️⃣ Artificial Intelligence (AI): Fast-growing AI technology is already making a mark in eyecare. Neurolens, with over 10 million data points, uses AI to provide exact phoria correction within minutes. AI is becoming commonplace in primary eyecare, aiding in decision-making for conditions like glaucoma, AMD, and dry eye.

Great place! Customer service is so helpful especially Craig!! After moving from the area last year I went to a local optical shop. Well you're on your own as for picking out frames. No help with what is better fitting for you at all! I'll be coming back to Formica's next time.
