Contact Lens Recycling Campaign – Win a Pair of Sunglasses

Coopervision Contact Lens RecyclingAt Bordentown Family Eye Care, we could not be more excited about summer! To us, this season represents spending more time outdoors, especially at the beach, fun family vacations, and of course, trendy sunglasses! During the months of July & August, we will be raffling off sunglasses to help promote our contact lens recycling campaign. We are very concerned about the amount of waste generated from contact lens packaging and it’s impact on our environment. So, simply bring in your empty contact lens blister packs to be recycled and enter our raffle to win a sunglass for being an environmentalist!

Our oceans are being inundated with so much plastic waste that it is found in 25% of all fish. A startling statistic is that by the year 2050, there will be more plastic by weight in the ocean than fish. Therefore, we aim to do our part and you can help too!

Please watch the following video which explains the dire situations of our oceans – you will be amazed!

Spring Clearance Sale

Spring is in the air as the earth thaws, the bulbs emerge and the allergies commence. At Bordentown Family Eye Care, we celebrate with our SPRING CLEARANCE EVENT!

March is also about SAVE YOUR VISION MONTH and about honoring women. While many think that good vision translates to healthy eyes, that may not always be the case. Routine eye care can ensure that you not only have great vision, but that your eyes are healthy too. The preservation of good vision is only through healthy eyes. Although March 8th was officially International Women’s Day, we believe it should last at least the entire month, and remembered through the year. Women are why we exist and that seems like reason enough to celebrate! For the remainder of the month of March women can enjoy 50% off all eyewear!

Glaucoma Awareness Month

January is Glaucoma Awareness Month. As the second leading cause of blindness in the US, glaucoma is very much treatable and manageable, as long as it is diagnosed in a timely manner, to avoid vision loss. The good news is that time is on our side, as it is typically a slowly progressive disease. The bad news is that the damage to the optic nerve that results is typically permanent and the vision loss irreversible:

Because there are no real symptoms to alert you early on, it is imperative to have routine eye exams to detect glaucoma. Many varieties exist, but it essentially restricts the flow of fluid from the eye, causing an increase in the eye’s internal pressure, which ultimately compromises the optic nerve, resulting in vision loss.
