Protecting Your Eyes

Tennis playerDid you know…

  • Nearly half of traumatic eye injuries relate to ball sports
  • 45% of these occur in children under the age of 14
  • 90% of these are preventable

Polycarbonate is a lens material that is widely used for shatter-and-impact resistant lenses, and when combined with sturdy frame materials, makes for formidable eye protection.

There are hazards of sunlight and bright light that are harder to understand; namely, ultraviolet rays (UV) and Glare (extreme brightness). Protecting your eyes from these distracting, even dangerous elements is equally important to eye protection.

COVID-19 UPDATE:

As of Tuesday evening, March 17th, the CDC has recommended that all routine eye exams be postponed until further notice in order to slow the transmission of COVID-19 through our community.

The Altamonte Mall is temporarily closed, however I am still available to see patients for urgent or emergency care. You may leave a voice mail at (407) 830-6546 or email me info@DrMyEyes.net for extensions on your contact lens prescriptions and other eyecare concerns.

If you are scheduled for an annual eye exam, we will tentatively reschedule you starting end of April/ early May. You can also book online by clicking the ‘Make An Appointment’ banner below.

With sincerest wishes for your continued good health, I remain in your service.

Dr. Libby Thompson
