November is a time when we feel so much gratitude in our hearts as we honor our brave Veterans, appreciate the wonderful community that we are part of and remember Dr. Sidney Lavine. At Bordentown Family Eye Care, we are so incredibly grateful to the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much for their country so that we may enjoy such freedom. We are so very thankful for those who have paved the way before us. We feel unbelievably blessed to have such supportive and loyal patients who make what we do so enjoyable and rewarding.
As sad as we are to say goodbye to the laid-back days of summer, we look forward to what awaits. September is Healthy Aging Month, and so we recognize the importance of a healthy lifestyle to reduce the degenerative process. With regards to the eye, our best defense in preventing degenerative changes is a healthy diet, including plentiful fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Leafy greens, in particular, are considered the super-food for the eye, as studies have shown their role in the prevention of Macular Degeneration and Cataracts. If you are unsure of how you’re doing in this process, you can schedule a comprehensive eye exam and we’ll let you know!
August is National Eye Exam Month! Have you scheduled your annual examination with Dr. Andrasz? Whether your eyes are feeling great, or maybe there’s some seasonal irritation, it’s always a good idea to have an annual check-up for your eyes. It’s the best way to get a thorough look deeper into ocular health and catch conditions early, while they’re still manageable. Our office has flexible hours and late nights available every Thursday, and we are ready to accommodate you, your family, and new patients. Make sure to stop by and take advantage of our Summer Sunglass Sale and participate in our Contact Lens Recycling Raffle! Bring in any quantity of empty contact lens blister packs to be recycled. That’s right! Those small plastic containers your contacts come in, are enough to get you entered into a raffle to win a free pair of sunglass frames! Its just a small way of thanking you, for being environmentally friendly this summer!
