Protecting Your Eyes From Glare

Glare is a distracting and sometimes dangerous excess of bright light, and can happen day or night. Glare can cause squinting, eye fatigue, and in extreme cases, even temporary blindness.

Did you know…

  • In daylight, glare can occur when walking indoors to outdoors, moving from shade to sunlight, even from reflected light off of surfaces like cars or sidewalks
  • At night, glare can occur from oncoming headlights while driving, or from bright reflections off of wet roads, even signs
  • Glare can impair visual comfort and visual quality, which can diminish healthy sight

Watch a short video about anti-reflection options:

Anti-reflective (AR) treatments are available for many lens products to help protect your eyes. AR treatments are proven to significantly reduce glare while increasing visual comfort.

Best of all? These types of lens treatments and materials, plus others like photochromics and polarized lenses, can often be bundled into one lens product for maximum versatility, as well as eye protection.

To our valued Patients:

To reduce the spread of Coronavirus Covid-19, The College of Optometrists of Ontario has recommended that our office sees urgent care cases only. As a result, we are on an “On Call” status and will see urgent care patients as necessary by appointment. If you have an eye emergency and require urgent care please contact info@bayblooroptometry.com or call the office and state: what your emergency/urgent eye issue is; when the issue began; and any symptoms you are experiencing. For all other inquiries, including new contact lens orders for existing patients, messages may be left in the same manner as above, and will be responded to as soon as possible.

We will be checking voicemail and email daily.

We thank you for your understanding and continued support and wish you all the best in good health.
