Com­mit­ted to the on­go­ing health of your eyes

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS -

At OPSM Queen­stown, they are ded­i­cated to car­ing for the eyes of all the peo­ple within their com­mu­nity and have in­vested heav­ily in new tech­nol­ogy to as­sist with this. At OPSM, all the staff are highly com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing per­sonal and on-go­ing eye health care and ser­vices. At this time of year we like to en­cour­age peo­ple to think about how they are pro­tect­ing their eyes from the sun. Sun dam­age to the eyes has been linked to many eye prob­lems in­clud­ing early for­ma­tion of cataracts and mac­u­lar de­gen­er­a­tion. The ear­lier you get into a good habit of pro­tect­ing your eyes all year round the bet­ter. The op­tions are end­less – pre­scrip­tion sun­glasses; Tran­si­tions which change from clear in­side to dark out­side; con­tact lenses so you can wear any pair of sun­glasses you want; Clip-on’s; Fi­tovers and there are even clear lenses that give UV pro­tec­tion but with­out be­ing dark. Sun­glasses can also make a fash­ion­able and

prac­ti­cal Christ­mas present for any­one in your fam­ily and we have re­cently got in some great new ranges of kids sun­glasses. If you find it hard to choose frames then a gift card gives free­dom and flex­i­bil­ity. We also have a spe­cial of­fer for the over 65’s – ev­ery Tues­day you can have a full eye health and vi­sion check -up in­clud­ing dig­i­tal reti­nal photography for only $65. In ad­di­tion, there is also a 15% dis­count on frames and lenses if you hold a su­per gold card. So if it’s been two or more years since your last eye test or you are hav­ing any prob­lems with your eyes, or just need a fresh idea for Christ­mas presents, pop in and meet the team at OPSM Queen­stown.
