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!

(*Sale is not valid in combination with VSP and other Insurance benefits. Exclusions apply.)

National Kindness Day

It may be chilly outside but may the warmth we generate within our hearts be enough to sustain us and others.

February is all about heart and soul. The American Heart Association outlines what it takes to have a healthy heart, but we know it’s more than just diet and exercise, it takes opening it up to others.

“ The openness of our hearts and minds can be measured by how wide we draw the circle of what we call family.” Mother Teresa

At Bordentown family Eyecare, we celebrate this month by honoring the legacy of Dr. Sidney Lavine. He shared the same ideals that we do for a successful community of patients: to always be charitable and kind. Our patients make up this great little community that we are so proud to call the home of our office. Bordentown Family Eyecare is proud to be a sponsor to the Bordentown Halloween parade, local sports teams, school safety programs and much more both in and outside of Bordentown city.

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.
