You can never be too cautious when it comes to your health, especially when we’re talking about the health of your eyes. Did you know individuals with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes are at risk for Diabetic Retinopathy, a disease which can result in blindness? But wait, there’s good news! As long as you have a comprehensive eye exam annually, you’ll have a good chance of catching the disease before it starts causing significant damage to your vision.
The human body’s system is what we call “interconnected,” meaning that changes in one part of our body, such as our eyes, can actually mean that there’s a change with another part of our body.
By having a comprehensive eye exam, your doctor may be able to spot a medical condition early, and begin a treatment plan before it starts to affect you. Since the eyes live on the surface of our bodies and are see-through, blood vessels, nerves and tissues can be easily viewed with specialized equipment.
Good vision is important in many aspects of life, but when it comes to an Olympian, good vision can be the difference between silver and gold. Whether on the court, in the pool, or in the sand, you’ll see many of the top athletes sporting protective eyewear or sunglasses while participating in the 2012 London Olympic Games.

Although, one of our favorite ‘50s styles making a second appearance comes to us in the form of fabulous retro sunglasses!
