Top 5 Holiday Gifts for People Who Wear Glasses

holiday gifts 640

The holiday season is upon us. For most people, that means going online or running to the mall to shop for gifts. When buying a present for someone who wears glasses it’s good to know what’s trending today. At Overland Optical Family Eye Care we carry the latest selection of designer frames, prescription eyeglasses and eyewear accessories.

Eye Doctor & Optical Store

If someone on your gift list wears glasses, below are 5 gift ideas to inspire you:

1. Gift Card

You can’t go wrong with a Overland Optical Family Eye Care gift card. Investing in a loved one’s vision goes beyond just providing clear vision. It shows them that you’re thinking of them and care about their health.

2. A Glasses Case

A quality pair of eyeglasses need to be protected. Buying a nice printed or colored eyeglass case allows people to keep their glasses protected in style. There are thousands of cases to choose from. A hard case is usually the best choice, as it delivers a higher level of protection. Consider your friend or loved one’s style preferences when shopping for the perfect case.

3. Eyeglass Repair Kit

An eyeglass repair kit may not be the most unique holiday gift, but it’s among the most useful gifts to have at home or when traveling. A repair kit usually comes with a microfibre cloth, screwdrivers, tweezers, and more. An eyeglass repair kit can be a lifesaver, especially during holidays and weekends, and for those who are often on the go.

4. NerdWax

Any eyeglass wearer will tell you how annoying it is to have to frequently push up their glasses from the bridge of their nose, or how frustrating those red marks on their nose can be because of their frames.

Nerdwax is a tube of wax that enables glasses to stay in place, all while stopping them from irritating the nose. This simple gift can bring increased comfort to the eyeglasses-wearer, enhancing their quality of life.

5. Cleaning Kit

Because eyeglasses require daily cleaning, an eyeglass cleaning kit is a great gift for those who regularly wear specs. Clean glasses not only offer clearer vision, but they help prevent glare, which enhances safety, particularly while driving. Using a proper cleaning kit also prevents the lenses from scratching and incurring permanent damage. A proper cleaning kit should include lens cleaning solution and at least one microfiber lens cloth.

With the assistance of our team, your gift recipient can choose from a wide selection of eye care products. Contact Overland Optical Family Eye Care to find out what a gift card can be used towards this holiday season.

Are Eye Problems More Common in Women Than Men?

Being a Woman Increases The Chances of Developing Eye Problems

When it comes to eye health and vision, men and women aren’t created equal. It might surprise you to learn that, worldwide, two-thirds of all cases of blindness and visual impairment occur in women.

Read on to learn why being a woman increases the chances of developing eye problems, and how regular visits to your eye doctor can help.

Longer Life Expectancy

Women live about 5 years longer than men on average. Moreover, women tend to remain healthier longer than their male counterparts. According to the World Health Organization, the average woman can expect to live a full 70 years before experiencing a major disease or injury, compared to 67 healthy years for a man.

But a woman’s increased life expectancy has significant implications when it comes to her eye health and vision. Age is a major risk factor for conditions and diseases like glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and dry eye syndrome.

The longer a woman lives, the more likely that she will develop a serious eye condition or disease.

Hormones

Women experience a remarkable amount of hormonal fluctuation throughout their lifespan. Puberty, pregnancy, and menopause all cause surges of estrogen, which can affect vision. Taking birth control pills also can cause visual or ocular symptoms, due to the varying levels of progesterone and estrogen.

Fluctuating estrogen levels can result in dry eye syndrome, which causes uncomfortable symptoms like red, itchy, watery eyes and, if untreated, possibly eye damage. Some women also experience blurred vision during estrogen surges. This is common during pregnancy but vision tends to normalize shortly after birth.

Medications

In almost every society around the world, women take more medication than their male counterparts. This includes both prescription and over-the-counter medications. What many don’t know is that several of these medications can pose significant risks to your eye health and vision, if taken in high dose and over an extended period of time.

Some medications that can affect your eyes include corticosteroids, antihistamines, antimalarials, and antipsychotic and antidepressant medications. Always consult your doctor before taking any prescription or nonprescription medications.

Autoimmune disorders

An autoimmune disease occurs when the body’s own immune system backfires and attacks the body’s own tissue. While the exact reason is still unclear, it is well documented that women have far more autoimmune diseases than men.

According to The National Institutes of Health, 75% of people living with an autoimmune disease are female. Some common autoimmune disorders that impact eye health include rheumatoid arthritis, Sjorgen’s syndrome, multiple sclerosis, lupus, and Graves’ disease (hyperthyroidism). These can cause symptoms like dry and red eyes, foreign-body sensation, pain, changes in vision, and sometimes vision loss.

What Can Women Do To Preserve Their Eye Health?

Whether you are male or female, taking a preventative approach to eye care is the best way to preserve your vision.

Eat a healthy diet rich in vitamins A, C, E, Omega-3’s, and zinc to support eye health. Quit or reduce smoking if you haven’t already. Also, limit your alcohol intake.

In addition to healthy lifestyle choices, a key factor in minimizing your risk of eye disease is seeing your eye doctor regularly.

Having frequent comprehensive eye exams allows your eye doctor to screen your eyes for early signs of disease. By detecting eye disease early, you’ll increase your chances of receiving effective treatment and preserving your vision.

Overland Optical Family Eye Care optometrists in Overland, Missouri provide expert eye exams and quality eye care services.

Dangerous Halloween Makeup Mistakes & How To Avoid Them

Eye Care at Overland Optical Family Eye Care

Eye Care at Overland Optical Family Eye Care

Using face paints and eye makeup can be a fun and creative way to dress up this Halloween. But since costume makeup is often applied more heavily than day-to-day makeup, it involves greater risk of eye infection and irritation. Here are our recommendations for keeping your eyes safe and happy while rocking your Halloween makeup look.

  1. Only use products that are intended for use around the sensitive eye area, such as the eyeshadow and eyeliner you use all year long. Many face paints and other products sold before Halloween are not eye-friendly. Be sure to read a product’s instructions before applying it.
  2. Try to use hypoallergenic products to lower the risk of an allergic reaction.
  3. Avoid applying costume makeup directly on your eyes, even if the product’s packaging depicts an image of an eye with closely applied makeup. A good rule to follow is keeping the makeup above the eyebrow.
  4. If you plan to use a new product, test it out on a small area of skin a few days before Halloween to ensure that it won’t irritate your skin.
  5. There is no luminescent or fluorescent cosmetic product that is FDA-approved for use around the eye area. Don’t apply makeup containing these ingredients.
  6. To prevent irritation, promptly remove your eye and face makeup after trick-or-treating or attending a Halloween party.
  7. Follow the removal instructions that are written on the product’s label.
  8. Always replace Halloween makeup from year to year. Using last year’s cosmetics significantly raises your risk of introducing harmful microbes into your eyes.
  9. Never share eye makeup with another person.

Some signs of irritation include eye redness, itchiness, inflammation, pain, sensitivity, or watery eyes. If you experience any uncomfortable symptoms due to eye makeup or anything else, contact Overland Optical Family Eye Care for a prompt eye examination. We wish all of our patients a safe and happy Halloween!

Eye Health Benefits of Eating Pumpkin

Are Pumpkins High in Vitamins & Minerals?

From pumpkin spice lattes to warm and comforting pumpkin soup, this winter squash is a favorite autumn ingredient — and for good reason. Not only are they delicious, they’re packed with several key nutrients that support ocular health. In fact, the nutrients in pumpkins and other carotenoids are strongly associated with a reduced risk of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Here’s why your eyes will thank you for consuming more pumpkin this autumn.

High in Vitamins A and C

Vitamin A plays a key role in protecting the cornea and supporting clear vision in dimly-lit settings.

When taken in combination with Vitamin A, Vitamin C has been shown to reduce the risk and slow the progression of age-related macular degeneration — a leading cause of blindness in adults. Vitamin C also reduces the risk of developing cataracts.

Great Source of Zeaxanthin and Lutein

Zeaxanthin and Lutein can be thought of as the eye’s natural “sunscreen.” They help filter out damaging high-energy light rays from the eyes.

Consuming sufficient amounts of these nutrients is also linked to a reduced risk of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.

Rich in Zinc

Zinc is an essential nutrient for eye health: high levels of it are found in the retina and choroid (the vascular layer of the eye). Zinc deficiency has been linked to having poor nighttime vision and the presence of cataracts.

It also helps deliver Vitamin A to the retina to form melanin (a pigment that protects the eye).

What’s more, zinc reduced the loss of visual sharpness by 19% and significantly slowed the progression of age-related macular degeneration in the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) sponsored by the National Eye Institute. The study found that getting 40-80 mg/day of zinc (in combination with other antioxidants) slowed the progression of AMD by 25%. Other studies determined that even a daily zinc intake of 25mg reduces AMD progression.

Some delicious and healthful ways to up your pumpkin intake are roasted pumpkin, pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin seeds for snacking, and last but not least — delectable pumpkin soup.

Below is an easy and nutritious recipe for pumpkin soup that will warm you up on chilly autumn days.

Pumpkin Soup – Food for the Soul and Your Eyes

You’ll need:

  • 2 sugar pumpkins or 2 ¼ cups of pureed pumpkin
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 shallots, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup coconut milk or other non-dairy milk
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 Tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp each of nutmeg, black pepper, cinnamon

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Then, cut the tops off the pumpkins and cut them in half. Scrape out all of the seeds with a sharp spoon. Here’s a tip: keep the seeds on the side and roast them later for snacking.

Brush the flesh of the pumpkins with olive oil and place them on the parchment paper, cut side down. Place in the oven for 40-50 minutes, until a fork easily pierces the skin.

Remove the pumpkins from the oven and let them cool enough to handle. Remove the skin from the pumpkin and set aside.

In a medium pot placed over medium/high heat, add the olive oil, diced shallots, and garlic. Cook until translucent or slightly browned, stirring occasionally.

Add the pumpkin and remaining ingredients to the pot and simmer for 20 minutes.

Use an immersion blender to puree the soup into a thick and creamy bisque.

Serve hot and enjoy!

Beware of Eye Infections – Eye Makeup & Decorative Contact Lenses

Eye Care at Overland Optical Family Eye Care

Eye Care at Overland Optical Family Eye Care

What is Keratitis?

Keratitis is an inflammation of the cornea (the clear outer covering of the eye). There are two types: infectious keratitis and non-infectious keratitis.

Though there are many fun aspects to Halloween, it can rapidly become scary if things go awry, especially when it affects your eye health. Halloween eye makeup, decorative contact lenses, shared eyewear or makeup, and the use of glitters can all potentially increase the risk of eye infections and unpleasant ocular conditions. So what is keratitis and what steps can you take to keep it from ruining your Halloween fun?

Infectious keratitis can be caused by a virus, fungus, bacteria, or parasites, and can only be treated with medication.

Non-infectious keratitis is usually caused by an eye injury, a foreign substance stuck in the eye, or wearing contact lenses longer than the recommended wear time.

What Are the Symptoms of Keratitis?

Signs and symptoms of keratitis include:

  • Eye redness
  • Eye pain
  • Excessive tearing or eye discharge
  • Blurred vision
  • Light sensitivity
  • Difficulty or inability to open the eye
  • Decreased vision or temporary blindness
  • The feeling that something is stuck in your eye

If any of these feel familiar, promptly contact Dr. Sara Schmitz, O.D. for immediate treatment.

So How Exactly Is Keratitis Treated?

Keratitis should be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. Any delay in treating the condition can lead to complications — even blindness.

The first step is going to your eye doctor for a comprehensive eye exam and getting an accurate diagnosis. Once keratitis is diagnosed, Dr. Sara Schmitz, O.D. will get to the root of the problem, determine the exact cause, and will provide treatment accordingly.

Mild non-infectious keratitis is generally treated with artificial tear drops to soothe any ocular discomfort until it heals. More severe cases of non-infectious keratitis can be treated with an eye patch and topical eye medications.

Infectious keratitis, on the other hand, is treated with antibacterial, antiviral, or antifungal eye drops, depending on the type of infection.

What Steps Can I Take to Prevent Keratitis?

We cannot emphasize it enough: to prevent complications, always maintain strict ocular hygiene.

  • Always wash and dry your hands thoroughly before handling your contact lenses
  • Replace your contacts at the recommended time
  • Replace your lens case every 3 to 6 months
  • Don’t swim or shower with contacts on
  • Switch to daily disposable contacts if you’re prone to eye infections
  • Avoid touching your eyes if you have an outbreak of cold sores/herpes, unless you’ve thoroughly washed your hands
  • Only use eye drops suggested or prescribed by your eye doctor and check when they need to be discarded.

While we certainly want our patients to enjoy themselves and have fun this Halloween, at Overland Optical Family Eye Care we care about eye safety while partaking in good-spirited fun.

Risks Of Decorative Contact Lenses

Contact Lens Eye Exam at Overland Optical Family Eye Care

Contact Lens Exam at Overland Optical Family Eye Care

Changing the look of your eyes with the help of decorative contact lenses can take your Halloween costume to the next level. But did you know that purchasing these lenses without a prescription from an eye doctor can actually pose serious harm to your eyes and eyesight?

Keep your eyes healthy this Halloween by asking Dr. Sara Schmitz, O.D. about the safest way to obtain and wear colored or cosmetic contact lenses.

How Can Decorative Contact Lenses Harm Your Eyes?

Because decorative contact lenses usually don’t correct vision, many consumers believe that it’s fine to purchase them without a prescription, online, from a street vendor, or beauty supply store. The truth is that decorative contact lenses can increase your risk of serious eye disease.

While few eye doctors stock decorative lenses, your eye doctor can provide you with a contact lens prescription based on an examination and fitting, as well as instructions on how to care for them in a safe, hygienic way. Never order lenses unless they conform to an optometrist’s prescription.

Some of the risks of decorative lenses include:

  • Bacterial or viral infection
  • Allergic reaction (red, watery eyes)
  • Corneal abrasion (a cut or scratch on the eye’s surface)
  • Permanent changes to vision
  • Blindness

Decorative contact lenses are often made by unlicensed manufacturers that tend to use lesser-quality or toxic materials such as lead (often used in lens coloring), which can get absorbed through the eyes into the bloodstream. They also may contain high levels of bacteria from unsanitary packaging, shipping, and storage conditions. We think that’s a reason to be spooked!

Furthermore, wearing decorative contacts without a proper fitting by an optometrist can lead to a permanently damaged or scarred cornea. The feeling of dryness that sometimes accompanies wearing these contacts often means they fit poorly and are scratching the cornea.

Even if you don’t need vision correction but still want to wear decorative contact lenses, make an appointment with Dr. Sara Schmitz, O.D. for a comprehensive eye exam and contact lens fitting to avoid potential eye damage.

Checklist for Decorative Contact Lens Wearers

  • Make sure to undergo a comprehensive eye exam by an eye doctor, who will measure your eyes and provide a thorough fitting of the contacts.
  • Obtain a valid prescription that includes all relevant information, like the contacts’ parameters, expiration date, and brand name.
  • Ensure the contact lenses you’ve ordered match the prescription in every detail.
  • Always purchase decorative contact lenses from a reliable retailer (tip: reliable retailers should demand a prescription.)
  • Carefully follow the hygiene instructions for cleaning, inserting, removing, and storing lenses laid out by your eye doctor.
  • Make sure to undergo a follow-up eye exam as directed by your eye care professional.
  • Never share contact lenses with anyone else.

By following these guidelines for safe contact lens use, you’ll be able to enjoy your Halloween without the worry or discomfort of an eye infection or damaged cornea. To schedule your comprehensive eye exam, call Overland Optical Family Eye Care or visit our Overland office.

Can You Limit Blue Light Exposure?

Computer Glasses Available at Overland Optical Family Eye Care

Computer Glasses Available at Overland Optical Family Eye Care

The topic of blue light has grown in popularity over the last decade, as indoor blue light exposure from computer screens and handheld digital devices has grown. You may hear varying opinions about whether blue light affects the eyes and to what degree, so continue reading to learn what we think is the most relevant information on the subject.

What is Blue Light?

Every color of visible light has a different wavelength and energy level. Colors like red, orange, and yellow have longer wavelengths and carry less energy than colors like blue and purple.

Because blue light carries higher energy, it can easily reach the retina at the back of the eye. Although some of the eye’s structures filter out harmful rays like ultraviolet light, they allow blue light to penetrate.

The sun, digital screens, and LED and fluorescent lighting all emit blue light.

How Does Blue Light Affect Eye Health?

The retina’s light-sensitive cells (photoreceptors) can be damaged by blue light when overexposed. In severe cases, this kind of cell damage produces similar symptoms to macular degeneration, and can even cause blindness.

Further research is needed to determine how much natural and man-made blue light is excessive, and what effect it has on eye health. Until more is known, many people err on the side of caution and try to limit their blue light exposure, especially from digital devices.

What is certain is that blue light contributes to digital eye strain. Because blue light has more energy and scatters more freely than other light (the reason that the sky appears blue), it is not easily focused. As the scattered blue light rays enter the eye, they create visual “noise” that is believed to be partly responsible for digital eye strain symptoms such as watery eyes, headache, blurry vision, and dry eyes.

How You Can Limit Blue Light Exposure

There are several ways to limit the amount of blue light that enters your eyes. You can purchase blue light filters for your devices, or simply reduce screen time.

If you spend a significant amount of time staring at a screen daily, you may want to consider purchasing computer glasses or blue light filters for your lenses. These glasses are available with or without a prescription, so they are compatible with contact lenses as well. Computer glasses are customized to meet the needs of your eyes and lifestyle.

To learn more about computer glasses or blue light, call Overland Optical Family Eye Care and make an appointment with . We can help guide you in choosing the right glasses that meet your visual needs.

What Are Trifocal Lenses?

Eyeglasses & Lenses - Overland Optical Family Eye Care

Eyeglasses & Lenses – Overland Optical Family Eye Care

Trifocal lenses correct vision to allow you to see clearly at near, intermediate, and far distances. Near vision refers to the ability to clearly see objects like a book or phone screen about 14 inches from the eyes. Intermediate vision is used to see objects that are 18 to 24 inches away, such as a computer screen or car dashboard. Distance vision refers to the eyesight needed to view objects beyond an arm’s length. You rely on good distance vision when driving, playing sports, or watching TV.

For those who need vision correction to see all three distances clearly, speak with Dr. Sara Schmitz, O.D. to determine whether trifocals can help.

Trifocal Glasses

Standard trifocal glasses are separated into three distinct sections, each one correcting a different type of vision, with a fine line demarcating each section. The top section corrects distance vision, the middle section corrects intermediate vision, and the bottom section corrects near vision. This allows you to see clearly at all distances just by shifting your focus to a different part of the lens.

Progressive trifocal glasses work the same way as standard trifocals, but don’t have the two distinct lines separating each section. Some patients report that progressive trifocals provide a smoother transition between visual zones.

Who Could Benefit From Trifocals?

Trifocals are popular among those with presbyopia, age-related farsightedness that makes it difficult to focus on near objects. Presbyopia is a natural part of aging and generally starts once a person turns 40 or 50. Trifocal lenses conveniently offer clear distance vision while eliminating the need to switch to different glasses when performing intermediate or up-close tasks.

Schedule Your Next Eye Exam

Whether you need trifocals, bifocals, or standard prescription eyeglasses, Overland Optical Family Eye Care can offer you the best in vision correction with a wide array of frames to choose from. To schedule your next eye exam or if you have any further questions, call us today.

Can Pregnancy Cause Blurred Vision?

Eye Exams at Overland Optical Family Eye Care

Eye Exams at Overland Optical Family Eye Care

Pregnancy is a beautiful time in a woman’s life, but can sometimes produce not-so-beautiful side effects like morning sickness and exhaustion. In some women, “blurred vision” can also be added to that list.

Blurred vision can affect pregnant women at any time during pregnancy, usually due to fluctuating hormones. In the vast majority of cases, a woman’s vision will return to normal within a few weeks following delivery. Rarely, blurred vision may be caused by serious pregnancy-related medical conditions, so it’s important to alert your physician and your eye doctor if you notice a change in your eyesight.

At Overland Optical Family Eye Care, we treat patients with all sorts of visual conditions, including pregnancy-related blurred vision. Read on to learn more about its causes and how it can be managed.

How Can Pregnancy Cause Blurred Vision?

One of the most common reasons for a pregnant woman to experience blurred or hazy vision is due to hormonal changes. Pregnancy hormones cause fluid retention, which results in the cornea becoming thicker. Since the cornea is responsible for focusing most of the light the eye sees, vision can be altered by this corneal change.

Usually, during their second and third trimesters, some women experience decreased eye pressure (IOP). IOP changes typically return to pre-pregnancy levels by two months postpartum. Excessive amounts of progesterone throughout pregnancy can soften the corneal tissue, causing a woman to experience double or blurred vision. Pregnancy hormones also decrease tear production, which can affect how clearly she sees.

Some complications of pregnancy, such as gestational diabetes or preeclampsia, can also be responsible for changes in vision. Gestational diabetes can cause temporary vision loss, light sensitivity, and flashes of light. And preeclampsia can cause modifications in the cornea and even damage to the retina, due to elevated blood pressure. For this reason, it is crucial that your physician regularly monitor your blood sugar levels and blood pressure.

We Can Manage Pregnancy-Related Blurred Vision and Other Eye Conditions

If you are pregnant and experiencing any sort of visual changes, speak with Dr. Sara Schmitz, O.D. about how to manage and ease your symptoms. It may be advisable to discontinue wearing contact lenses and switch to glasses for the duration of your pregnancy. Dr. Sara Schmitz, O.D. can also suggest several eye exercises and prescribe pregnancy-safe eye drops that may provide some relief while you’re expecting.

Don’t let uncomfortable or bothersome visual symptoms stop you from enjoying this special time. Call Overland Optical Family Eye Care to schedule your appointment today.

“Buying local” isn’t just a new fad reserved for the trendy. It’s a socially responsible way to strengthen your community.

Not having a warranty can be a deal-breaker for many shoppers, something to be wary of when shopping online in general.

Need a Repair? No Big Deal

Nose pad fell out? Lens became loose? Not a problem. The local optical practice where you purchased your eyewear can help with the repair. It’s always best to have your glasses repaired at the location that they came from, since the staff is familiar with the piece and can easily provide assistance.

Personalized Service & Care

Online shopping doesn’t compare to the friendly and warm shopping experience you receive when visiting Overland Optical Family Eye Care. Our staff aims to provide you with personalized service and care, to make every visit a positive experience.

Find Your Perfect Fit – Optician in Overland

Take the opportunity to get fitted by an optician who can recommend frames that properly fit your face, and make adjustments to ensure your glasses fit comfortably yet securely. You may be disappointed when ordering stylish glasses online, only to receive ill-fitting eyewear that isn’t your exact prescription. At Overland Optical Family Eye Care we ensure that each patient is fitted with eyewear that best suits their style, face, and vision.

Shop Local – Support Local Service Providers

Where you spend your dollars makes a difference. Buying locally strengthens the local economy and ensures that jobs are available to those in the community. Especially in this current pandemic situation, your community needs you to invest in it and allow it to continue to survive. Help make a positive change in Overland — invest in local businesses.
