We carry the latest European and American designer eyewear collections in a variety of styles, colors and materials.

When you make a decision about your eyewear, you are making a statement about who you are. Your decision affects your vision. Glasses, if picked appropriately, can improve your best facial features, while hiding your less desirable features. Our dedicated and expert optician will assist you in finding the perfect pair to fit your lifestyle.

Q&A with Dr. Deanna Lyn Hammond | Diabetes

How does diabetes affect your eyes?

How does diabetes affect your eyes?

When we eat carbohydrates our body breaks them down into sugar which is sent to the bloodstream with the help of insulin. If too much sugar is made or we don't have enough insulin to handle this process we have an excess amount of sugar in the bloodstream.

One side effect is a swelling of the lens in the eye caused by water being pulled into the lens.This can cause blurred vision which is often temporary. Other more severe risks include diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, cataracts, and glaucoma.

NOTICE OF TEMPORARY CLOSURE/REDUCED BUSINESS HOURS DUE TO COVID-19

Dear Patients and Families of First Eye Care Grand Prairie,

In light of the recent development and spread of COVID-19, our top priority has remained the safety of our patients, families, community, and staff.

The American Optometric Association (AOA), Texas Optometric Association (TOA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have recommended that “health care facilities and clinicians should prioritize urgent and emergency visits and procedures now and for the coming several weeks” and to “postpone routine dental and eyecare visits.

To better follow the guidelines recommended by the CDC, we have made the decision to postpone routine eye exams and temporarily close. A doctor will be on call for urgent or emergency medical eye visits only. Should you have an ocular emergency that requires immediate or urgent care, whether it is an injury, infection, foreign body, or sudden change in vision, please call/text (469) 563-2460.

We will have limited staff in the office on an as needed basis for urgent/emergency visits, and to take care of contact lens orders, picking up glasses, etc. Patients can arrange to get their contact lenses ordered and shipped to home, or curbside pick up of glasses/contact lenses can also be arranged. We believe that this unfortunate but necessary step will allow us to better follow the CDC’s guidelines and the Dallas County Shelter in Place Order to help limit the spread of COVID-19.

We will continue to monitor and keep you informed as the situation unfolds and will update you on changing hours as we learn more.

We want to thank you for your overwhelming understanding and support as we get through these difficult times together (but socially distant). We are most concerned for your health and safety, and that of your family, and look forward to seeing you again soon!
