CLEARWATER, FL (PRWEB) October 08, 2012
The Eye Shop in downtown Clearwater, is offering a limited-time special for vision eyeglasses for the month of October; customers can purchase two pair for $99. Pam Rowan, the owner of Eye Shop, believes it’s important to provide specials such as this as a reminder that vision health should be taken seriously, as well as an incentive to schedule an eye exam.
According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), the suggested frequency of eye examinations differs between ages (1):
◦ First eye exam at six months of age; additional exam at age three, and then again at the start of school.
▪Routine eye exams are essential for children to be ready to learn in school; more than 80 percent of the information children receive in classrooms is presented visually.
◦Risk-free children should continue to have their eyes examined every two years until age 18.
◦Comprehensive eye exam every two years for adults ages 18 to 60, as vision may change, resulting in a different prescription.
“If someone knows they need to update their prescription, or it’s time for an eye exam, they are more likely to do so if they can save money,” commented Pam Rowan. “We want people to stay healthy, and want to make it possible for them to get the glasses they need.”
The AOA also advises on whom to see for your eye exam and prescription needs – and an ophthalmologist is included. Ophthalmologists are medical doctors (MDs or DOs) who specialize in eye care. Not only do they prescribe eyeglasses and contacts, but they also perform eye surgery and treat medical conditions of the eye. They are eye doctors who have completed medical school and have undergone additional post-graduate training in medical and surgical eye care. At the Eye Shop, patients can visit with a board-certified ophthalmologist, Dr. Carey Rowan, during their appointment.
The Eye Shop is also implementing weekly emails to customers who wish to receive educational information, the latest news on vision health, and special monthly offers. To sign up, please visit http://www.eyeshopdowntown.com/.
The Eye Shop is committed to providing superior service and the best deals on designer eye glass, frames, sunglasses and prescription sunglasses. Rowan will also be having monthly discount specials for eye exams and in-store purchases. To learn more about the Eye Shop, visit http://www.eyeshopdowntown.com, or call the Eye Shop at 727-755-EYES.
