How to watch an eclipse safely

On August 21, 2017, the entire United states will experience a partial eclipse – and for those lucky enough to be in parts of 11 states, a full eclipse.

The Great American Eclipse of 2017, as it is referred to, offers an exciting opportunity to experience this exciting event.

However, looking directly at the sun an eclipse can permanently damage your vision and potentially blind you, so it is important to plan so you can experience it safely.

Independence Day is upon us again and the bright sparkles and thunderous crackling of fireworks are an exciting and expected part of the celebration.

And though your little one may not be looking forward to trading in those grass-stained shorts for a fresh school year wardrobe, the back to school to-do list doesn’t just end at backpacks, ballpoint pens, and blouses: your son or daughter should also have a back to school eye exam before they hit the books.

My overall experience was excellent. I liked how I could have my pre-ops in Tucson, since there is only one Surgery Center. Joe in Tucson was wonderful. He called me back promptly and alleviated my concerns about the surgery. Overall, a great experience.

I had no idea you had such a selection of great eyewear. The optometrist helped me find the pair that fit my face, my personality and highlighted my eyes – which, I’ve been told, are one of my best features!
