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!
National Eye Exam Month
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!

At 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 August and September 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!
