Learning All About Glaucoma

Learing All About Glaucoma

It is one of the more well-known eye diseases, affecting more than 3 million people in America. It’s a disease that has no cure, but can be prevented and treated to slow and stop further progression. It’s the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the world. And because January is a month dedicated to spreading awareness about this disease, what better way is there for us to explain what it is, how it affects us, and how it is treated. Let’s talk about Glaucoma.

The Roaring Twenties and Eyewear: your guide to glasses in the early 20th Century

Today, we take eyewear a little bit for granted. Endless styles, futuristic technology, and availability to everyone. Glasses are a common commodity, and the world can see better because of it. But for the next few minutes, let us transport you to the 1910s and 1920s, where optometry innovations made glasses mainstream and fashionable. With Downton Abbey releasing this Friday, we thought it was only appropriate to turn the dials on our time machine and learn about optometry of the era, the technology behind eyeglasses at the time, and then style of the age. 

Downtown Visions’s Fall 2019 Frame Fashion Guide

The second Starbucks whips out the Pumpkin Spice Latte, fall has begun. No more shall we abide by the Gregorian Calendar. No longer shall we be held hostage by outdated fashion rules that ban wearing white past Labor Day! Begone, September 21st! You are no longer the signifier of autumn! Fall is a season known for warm colors despite the cooler weather (something I’m sure we can all agree we’re ready for here in Reno).
