Coast to Coast Total Solar Eclipse 2017

We are excited to be part of such a special day in history this Monday, August 21st. While the last Total Solar Eclipse in the USA only dates back to 1979, the last one to stretch from coast to coast has not occurred since June 8, 1918. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon blocks any portion of the sun, and a total solar eclipse occurs only when the moon entirely blocks the sun, turning day into night for a few brief minutes. Because being part of this special day in history is so important to many people, we want to make sure you are safe while doing so. Please take time to read the safety precautions recommended by NASA and the American Optometric Association. Everyone should make the most of this experience, but we also urge you to follow the recommended safety precautions. If you find you have any vision issues after the solar eclipse, please call our office at 479-750-3937 and make an appointment. https://www.aoa.org/Documents/public/AAS-Solar-Eclipse-Safety-v170210.pdf

Have you ever considered the wonder of color–how a soft, pristine blue can calm and relax, how a vibrant, intense red can energize and motivate, or how a lush, welcoming shade of green can bring renewal or ideas of rebirth? Hunter has pondered these things and more his entire life… Here is his story. “When I was three years old, I started a journey that would impact the rest of my life…I began preschool. I had always been a very social person, so I was naturally excited to meet a classroom full of new friends. The thought of having 30 new people to laugh at my jokes, to race across the playground, to build tall block towers, and to learn with was so exciting to me. Let’s just say, preschool didn’t exactly unfold as I had planned. Learning my alphabet and numbers came with great ease–I even learned them faster than most of the other kids in my class, but I severely struggled when we started to learn patterns and colors. I remember being so frustrated with myself and embarrassed that I could never quite stumble on the correct answer. My parents spoke with my teacher on many occasions, and all became worried that maybe I had a learning deficiency. After many hours of thought and collaboration, my parents decided to have me tested to see if I could be color blind. I was very nervous the day I walked into the optometrist’s office. My mom assured me that the test would be painl

Have you ever seen a rabbit wearing glasses? Doubtful! We have always been told that eating carrots promotes good vision and healthy eyes, but is this truth or fiction? The orange hue of carrots appears because of beta-carotene, which is converted to Vitamin A in the liver, producing the richness that our bodies need to aid in smoothly functioning eyes. The truth is, rabbits don’t maintain their glasses-less faces on a diet of only carrots. There are other essential foods that help maintain healthy eyes. Leafy green vegetables are also important to the diet and eye health. Studies have proven that leafy greens actually help reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration, the most common cause of vision loss in people 50 and older. While you are dying your Easter eggs, take the opportunity to crack one of those eggs open and enjoy the yellow yolk in the middle. Egg yolks are rich in antioxidants and zinc, which also reduce risks of macular degeneration. Citrus fruits and berries are known to contribute to healthy eyes. The vitamin C contained in these tropical fruits has been shown to reduce the chances of developing macular degeneration. A handful of almonds contains half of the body’s daily amount of vitamin E. These make for a convenient snack, all while helping slow the process of macular degeneration. Bright red and orange fatty fish such as tuna, mackerel, salmon, e
