Why Your Eyes Should Give Thanks

November 21, 2017

At OCLI, we’re excited for Thanksgiving! We can already taste the roasted turkey, homemade stuffing, candied yams, and pumpkin pie! (Are you getting hungry yet?) Being in the business of eyecare, it seems to us that our eyes have a lot to be grateful for. Here’s our latest list of reasons your eyes will thank you for bringing them to OCLI, where you’ll always find service that’s friendly, effective, and affordable!

Be thankful for saying goodbye to your eyeglasses and contact lens, for good.

Our LASIK procedure offers precise, individual vision correction that’s even more customized to your unique eye than your existing eyeglass or contact lens prescription. With LASIK, you’ll be able to finally ditch your eyewear to enjoy unhindered recreation and newfound convenience. (Sounds pretty nice to go swimming, play contact sports, rough house on the floor with your kids or hold your baby without worrying about your eyewear, right?)

And forget about fussing with contact lenses. No more buying lens solution, popping your lenses in and out to shower or sleep, or even remembering to reorder them when you’re running low on your disposable daily wear. And thanks to our accessible financing options, LASIK is long-term cost-effective option within the reach of almost everyone.

Be thankful for the state-of-the-art in dry eye care.

Dry eyes are one of those things that may not sound like a big deal…until you experience it and find out for yourself how incredibly uncomfortable (if not downright miserable) it can be. Especially for chronic sufferers, dry eyes can be not only a major source of physical and emotional irritation but a health hazard, making eyes more vulnerable to infection and other problems.

If you experience dry eyes, never fear, effective help is available at OCLI. We have traditional treatments to bring you relief, as well as the latest in chronic dry eye treatment: the TearLab Osmolarity System along with the MiBoThermflo therapeutic treatment device.

Be thankful for relief from digital eye strain.

Working on your computer all day can wreak havoc on your eyes. Here at OCLI, as more and more people are spending more and more time on their smartphones, laptops, and tablets, we’re noticing (you guessed it) that more and more patients are presenting with the symptoms of digital eye strain. (Nature never intended that multiple, consecutive hours of our day would be spent focusing on a relatively small, stationary, glare emitting object.)

Of people who use computers at work, 50-90% develop symptoms, while those of us who use computers mostly for personal reasons fare only slightly better with 40-60% symptom rate. The good news is that we at OCLI are expert at addressing these symptoms, giving all you digital warriors some much needed relief.   

We also offer the new Hoya Sync BKS lenses, a modern single-vision lens for wearers who have dynamic visual demands at various distances from the use of digital devices such as smartphones, tablets and computers. The design component is placed across the entire surface of the lens providing a wide, edge to edge functional area.

Be thankful for no longer needing your reading glasses.

Would you like to be able to read fine print again, thread a needle, or focus clearly on small details without your reading glasses? How about being able to apply your eye makeup without a magnifying mirror? If you’re middle-age or older, chances are your close-up vision is showing signs of deteriorating or is already so compromised you find it all but impossible to perform certain simple tasks.

The KAMRA Procedures are a state-of-the-art treatments for restoring your ability to see things clearly, close up, resulting in a natural range of vision (giving you both near sight and far sight without the aid of eyewear).   We are one of a handful of practices nationally ceredentialed to provide both procedures to our patients.

This season as you’re dreaming about the food, family, and fun that’s in store for you, give thanks with us here at OCLI for all the ways we can make your eyes grateful. Contact us today and see what’s on the Thanksgiving eyecare menu for you!
