Back to School Celebration Sale

August is National Eye Exam Month. Our office cares about your family’s eye health and the positive impact that good vision has on a person’s overall quality of life. With school soon approaching, it is a good time to think about your child’s vision to maximize learning this year.

Studies have shown that of all school aged children who are identified as problem learners, as many as 60% of them have undetected vision troubles. Unfortunately, only an estimated 14% of children receive comprehensive eye exams before entering kindergarten or first grade. At Bordentown Family Eye Care, we want to see your children succeed in their academic and athletic lives. Scheduling an annual eye exam for everyone in your family, regardless of age, is imperative to achieving an optimal visual system.

Be sure to call ahead and book your annual exam, and stop by anytime to browse our fashionable and functional frames for the new school year. We also carry a large selection of sport and recreational eyewear to keep your whole family safe!

Fresh Spinach Day

July 16th is Fresh Spinach Day! It seems like Popeye The Sailor’s love of spinach didn’t only make him physically strong, but it may have also strengthened his vision.

Spinach is known for its high fiber content and vitamins, but did you know that it also has antioxidants beneficial to the health of your eyes?

There are three pigments, known as “macular pigment” at the back of the eye: Meso-Zeaxanthin, Lutein, and Zeaxanthin. Green vegetables such as spinach, kale and broccoli are naturally rich in two of these antioxidants; zeaxanthin and lutein. When these substances become part of a healthy, balanced diet, studies have shown a possible decrease in the development of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.

Since it is not always possible to meet one’s complete daily requirements of these antioxidants, our office offers a great natural supplement to our patients called MacuHealth. Not only does MacuHealth contain Lutein and Zeaxanthin, but it also contains Meso-Zeaxanthin, an antioxidant less commonly found in our normal diet.

Be sure to ask about the benefits of these antioxidants and MacuHealth at your next routine eye exam.
