Protecting Your Eyes From UV Rays

Every day—sunny or cloudy, Spring through Winter—you are exposed to damaging ultraviolet rays. Though you may not realize it, it’s there—UV radiation is invisible to the naked eye.

Watch a video about ultra violet rays:

Did you know…

  • UV light can "sunburn" the eye's surface and cause benign yellowish growths on the human eye
  • Prolonged exposure to harmful UVA and UVB radiation over time can contribute to serious, age-related eye conditions or diseases
  • These diseases include cataracts and macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in people over age 60
  • Only lens materials or lens treatments that promise 100% protection against both UVA and UVB rays protect your eyes fully from the harmful rays of the sun. Demand 100% UV protection.

All appointments have been cancelled until March 30th!

At this time, under the advice of the College of Optometrists of Ontario, Dolman Eyecare will be closing our clinic until March 30th or until further notice as a precaution to help protect our patients, team members and the community against the spread of COVID-19.

Should you experience an ocular emergency or concerns about your eye health, please email dec251b@gmail.com or call (519-662-3340).

You may also let us know if you are in need of contact lenses or have an eyeglasses emergency. We will do our best to help you.

A team member will be responding to messages and answering the phone between the hours of 10:00 am and 12:00 noon, from Monday to Friday.

The current State of Emergency in the Province of Ontario requires that we minimize contact with each other as much as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience. Once our office reopens, we will reschedule your appointment.

We appreciate you patience and understanding during this very difficult time.

 

Sincerely, with best wishes,

The Dolman Eyecare Team
