Today it is a well-known fact that people should wear sunscreen in the winter to help protect their sun from the sun’s rays. However, did you also know that it is important to wear sunglasses year round to protect your eyes as well from the sun’s harmful rays? The sun emits UVA and UVB rays that can both cause serious damage to your eyes. For this reason, it is wise to wear sunglasses year round that will protect your eyes from the sun. This is also especially important for your child’s eyes as well. A child’s eyes are even more susceptible to eye damage from the sun’s rays. This is why we are also happy to carry a selection of child’s sunglasses at our Bronx optical store.
At our Bronx optical store, Eye Express, our staff of licensed opticians and optometrists are happy to help you with all of your eye care needs. Our optometrists provide comprehensive eye exams and contact lens exams and fittings to help with your eye wear prescription needs. Our opticians will help fit your eyeglasses to your face so that they will be comfortable and provide an optimal vision experience. Our optometrist, Dr. Alan Vilinsky, will also be able to discuss with you the different types of lens options that are available to you. They will be able to make specific recommendations regarding which type of eyeglass or sunglass lenses will be able to provide you with UVA and UVB protection. Exposure to these harmful rays can cause vision problems as you get older, including causing cataracts. For an appointment with our optometrist, please contact us today. If you are coming in for a new pair of eyeglass frames and lenses, feel free to visit our eye care practice at any time.

Contact lenses are a popular choice in corrective lenses. You can wear them for a variety of vision problems, there are several types- including colored lenses- and they hold several advantages over eyeglasses, their older cousins. Whether you already have eyeglasses and you are considering switching to contact lenses or if you are in need of an eye exam to find out if you need contact lenses, our Bronx eyeglass store, Eye Express, is the place to go. We have everything you need including the expert advice and the wide selection to make it a pleasant experience.
Bronx Contact Lens Exam
With contact lenses from our Bronx eyeglass store, you can have the benefits of a very natural way of seeing compared to eyeglasses. You retain your full peripheral vision, also. You will also be pleased that you can have a higher degree of comfort with contact lenses than you thought possible. Among the types of contact lenses, daily disposables have become quite common. They offer the convenience of no maintenance. At the end of the day, you simply toss them in the trash. The next morning, you put in a new pair. They require no case and if you lose one, it’s not that big a deal. You also have less risk of germs forming on them which makes you far less likely to get an eye infection. Bifocal and multifocal lenses allow you to address more than one vision concern with one pair of lenses, just as you would with eyeglasses. Color lenses let you express your sense of style while at the same time correcting your vision. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to change eye color? This is your chance. In fact, you can get no-prescription color contact lenses even if your vision does not need correcting.
Other advantages of contact lenses include no reflection, glare, or fogging as you would have with eyeglasses. It’s far easier to engage in sports or other activities with contact lenses than it is with eyeglasses. You also won’t have to worry about the way eyeglasses sit on your nose or ears. That is a common complaint, but with contact lenses you eliminate that concern. Come on in to our Bronx eyeglass store today. If you need an eye exam, please call to schedule one first. You will be thrilled to see all of the possibilities when you decide to wear contact lenses.
