"I've worn glasses for 45 years -- this is incredible! I see ordinary objects (trees, flowers, people, houses, cars, etc.) with crispness and sharpness unlike I ever experienced with glasses. My only regret is that I didn't have it done sooner. The results are nothing short of UNBELIEVABLE!"

I'm Over the Moon Excited!

November 09, 2012 @ 05:15 AM -- by JoAnn DeRousse, COT

Dr. Emily Thomas is a Visianary!

It was a very emotional day last Thursday for Emily Thomas, OD of Springfield, MO.  Why?  

Emily who has been extremely nearsighted and dependent on glasses or contact lenses since she was a young child, decided to have the Visian ICL (Implantable Contact Lens) procedure.  To be able to see the clock and her Mom's face immediately after the procedure sent us all looking for tissues!

 

 

What Does It Take to See Great After Age 45?

November 05, 2012 @ 07:47 PM -- by Andrew J. Biondo, OD

What do you get when you marry a rigid gas permeable contact lens to a soft contact?  It's the new Duette™ HD and Duette™ Multifocal hybrid contact lens!

Those of us who wore contact lenses years ago know that RGP's (rigid gas permeable lenses) were our only choice back in the day.  Though they provided excellent vision, they definitely were not the most comfortable contact lens to wear.  The tiniest speck of dust or mascara under the lens could send you running for a tissue!

Now, you can have the best of both worlds...the great vision of a rigid lens AND the all-day comfort of a soft lens!

It's Flexible Spending Account Time!

September 12, 2012 @ 08:39 PM -- by JoAnn DeRousse, COT

Flexible Spending Account (FSA), Cafeteria Plan, Section 125 -- are all terms used to describe an employer-sponsored benefit for employees to fund out-of-pocket medical, dental, vision and in some cases, child care expenses.  

Money deducted from an employee's paycheck into an FSA account is done so BEFORE taxes...which at the end of the year saves you money by reducing the amount of income tax you pay!

But. you must use it by the end of the year....or, lose it!
