Trick question! Of course you do, don’t we all??? (And let’s face it, our husbands fall right into that category as well!) If you’ve been searching for the perfect kid’s frame that will withstand the playground, gymnastics, and the basketball courts in gym class, look no further!

I’ve had a blast creating a hidden gem within San Antonio – an office unlike any other local optical – where we can proudly say we have the BEST when it comes to eyewear!

I hear all too often from patients new to my office that they’ve never enjoyed wearing glasses before.

The average adult spends 9 hours a day on digital devices and our children are not far behind. Children between the ages of eight and 18 spend just under 8 hours a day with digital media. When the use of more than one digital device at a time is considered, they spend more than 10 ½ hours a day with digital technologies!!! Time on digital devices exposes our eyes to higher levels of “blue light,” leading to digital eye strain, sleep problems, blurred vision, headaches, and neck and shoulder pain.
