Blue Eyes Are Light Brown?

Posted by Sonya Frank on Monday, August 29, 2016,
The sky is not truly blue. Higher energy blue colour in sunlight bounces around the sky more than other colours and scatters the blue light. This scattering is why 'blue' eyes appear blue, even though they are truly light brown.

Sunny Days… Keeping Those Rays Away!

Posted by Sonya Frank on Thursday, April 23, 2015,

Ah, spring!  With winter finally over, we can get out and start enjoying the great outdoors once again.   Make sure you bring your sunglasses along for the journey!

Think of sunglasses as sunscreen for the eyes.  The strong rays of the sun damage your skin and cause a burn, and this can also be true for eyes.  A “welder’s flash” is a quick sunburn on the front of the eye and is REALLY painful, but you can also get sunburns on the back of the eye that can be painless yet permanently bli...

Sunglasses

Posted by Sonya Frank on Thursday, December 4, 2014,

Sunglasses are a "must", even in winter!  They protect your lens, retina, cornea, iris, the white of the eye and the skin around the eye.   When shopping for new shades, be sure they have 100% UV protection.  Polarized lenses don’t add extra UV protection, but they do reduce sun glare which is especially great for people who love to be by the water.  Colour and lens darkness is up to personal preference; some colours can even help enhance vision for particular sports and activities.  As wit...

Clearing Things Up...

Posted by Sonya Frank on Monday, November 17, 2014,

There are a lot of misconceptions about eyes and vision out there.  Here is my list of the top 10 truths that I think everyone should know:

1)  No taxes apply to eye exams or prescription eyewear.  That’s right – as long as they are prescription, there is no tax on glasses, sunglasses or contact lenses!  Items like pre-made reading glasses or non-prescription sunglasses are charged HST, though.

2)  “Vision screenings” are not the same as “eye exams”.  Quickly reading an eye char...
