New year… New resolutions! For many this means a new diet, with the hopes that they can shed those extra 5lbs they put on last year. But this year, there’s a new diet that should take precedence in your life: an eye diet! No, that doesn’t mean your eyes need to lose weight. We’re talking about feeding your body foods that are good for your eye health!
There are so many different foods you can eat that can help maintain and improve eye health. These are just a few that you should be incorporating into your New Years eye diet.
Heading back to school after summer break means it’s time to adjust those eyes to looking at the whiteboard and school books again. Hopefully, kids get an “eye break” over the summer while they play outside, go on adventures and practice reading for enjoyment rather than studying is a great way to help them exercise their eye muscles.
With so many activities still closed or offering reduced hours it might be hard to think of fun ways to get outside and enjoy the outdoors this summer. But there’s no reason to spend your days at home, shopping online for glasses and new clothes! Get outside and experience Oakville with one of these suggestions this summer.
With so many great things to see in Oakville this summer, make sure you’re seeing it all with your best vision! At Envision Eye Care, we’re accepting new families and your eye exams are just a call or click away!

With the prevalence of a new coronavirus taking over our news feeds, it can often bring up questions about some of the less common side effects that could be experienced with the flu or coronavirus.

Yes, staying indoors too much is bad for your eyes! A break from work or school is always a good time to spend more time outdoors – for recreation, leisure, and great health!
For children and adults alike, a largely indoor and sedentary lifestyle is not healthy.
The current COVID-19 pandemic is likely forcing you to spend more time indoors than you usually would be. Please be mindful that spending time outdoors, while safely social distancing, is good for your overall and eye health.

When the time comes to buy new glasses, it can feel like a given to hop online with your new prescription in hand and place an order.

Though there are many reasons to buy glasses in-store rather than online, there are even more benefits to buying glasses in a store where an optometrist is…

The rest of the year sunglasses aren’t usually something that feels as commonplace, but that doesn’t make them any less important! There are many reasons to wear sunglasses in the winter, too. In fact, it may be even more important to wear sunglasses in the winter than in the summer!

Most sports come with their standard protection equipment. Soccer players wear shin pads and hockey players have a full protective uniform. But many players forget to protect one of their most important assets… Their eyes! Sports are among the leading cause of eye injuries and since eyesight is such an essential part of life (and sports!), it’s a good idea to prevent any possible eye injuries.
When it comes to your sight and how you perceive things, there is more to it than “meets the eye”! “Sight” and “perception” are related and combine to form how we come to lern and know about our visual world. They are both factors that work together to help you navigate your way through many areas of life.
