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.
