Norwalk Eye Care is proud to be one of the first practices in the country to have BluTech lenses! BluTech Lenses filter high-energy blue and ultra-violet light and provide the same protection, contrast enhancement, and color perception to the eye as the human crystalline lens. Blue light is found in a number of every day activities, including fluorescent lighting, electronic screens (phones, tablets, computers, TVs), and the sun. Anyone who uses a computer, tablet, or handheld device would benefit from this protection. Please call the office today to find out more information about this exciting technology!
Most eye injuries that occur in the workplace are preventable.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness for those 65 years of age and older. Are you aware of the ways to prevent it?
Glaucoma, often called the "sneak thief of sight", is the leading cause of blindness worldwide, and the leading cause of blindess in African Americans.
This may be a good time to evaluate how you are going to spend your flex spending account if you have not used it completely. If you have not had your eye examination this year yet, call us to set-up your appointment before the end of the year. You may be able to use these funds for your examination fees, as well as glasses and contact lenses.
The American Medical Association has issued a policy recognizing that exposure to excessive light at night, including electronic screens, can lead to sleep loss, especially in children and adolescents. Our practice proactively recommends Blu-Tech lenses to any and all patients, especially children, for work on computers, hand held devices and video games. Visit www.blutechlenses.com to learn more about this great technology, and visit our office today to get your pair!

Autumn allergies can be tough on all patients, whether they wear contact lenses, spectacles, or neither. Instead of heading to your local drugstore to for over the counter relief, schedule an appointment to see Dr Feder or Dr Stewart. Many systemic antihistamines can clear up runny noses and sneezing, but make ocular symptorms worse by decreasing team quantity and quality. Dr Feder or Stewart will recommend the right treatment for your symptoms, and have you enjoying the beautiful fall weather and feeling great!
We are pleased to introduce one of the newest lens technologies- Transitions Vantage lenses! Until now, there have been clear lenses that darken, and sunglasses that are polarized. But there has never been an every day lens that is able to both darken and polarize in outdoor light- until the Vantage lens! These new lenses are photochromic and also have variable polarization that increases as the lenses get darker in outdoor light. This gives you lenses that get darker, with crisper, sharper and more vivid vision, and less glare.
We find these lenses to be great for every day use- visit the office today to learn more!
