People get routine medical check-ups for the rest of the body, yet the eyes often go neglected. It’s never intentional, but when squinting, seeking natural light, or grabbing a pair of store-bought “cheaters” gets us by in a pinch, it puts off making that important exam appointment too. Something tells me we are not alone, and this may apply to most of you too. Since we at JINS wear glasses ourselves, it is easy to admit that good eyesight is often taken for granted, but lucky for us procrastinators, JINS now has the answer to easy 20/20 vision in 2020, read on.
Practically everyone who wears, or will, wear eyeglasses will experience changes in their prescription over time. And the younger the age when visual assistance becomes a reality, the more changes will occur. Many factors play into our visual health, but two common culprits are age and illness.
Nothing can be done to avoid the age factor, but we can take steps to prevent ocular illness. You do not get a pass just because you feel nothing is wrong with your peeps! Regular eye exams every 1-2 years should be an integral part of every medical screening regimen to ensure proper health.
Before heading into a JINS store, verify your current prescription, or update an expired one. This will not only save time and hassle, but your JINS specialists will be ready to set you up with new glasses in 30 minutes (see store locations). Our personalized service continues as our friendly staff will correctly adjust your new specs to fit comfortably.
And if you didn’t know already, you can get an eye exam at the following JINS stores: Union Square in San Francisco, Valley Fair in San Jose, and the Santa Anita and Del Amo stores in Los Angeles. The exams are administered by 20/20 NOW’s Ophthalmology Services which provide thorough and accurate comprehensive eye exams. Customers benefit from their patented software, digital equipment and exam process. Using real-time HD video conferencing, board-certified ophthalmologists and expert ophthalmic technicians provide precise prescriptions on the spot. Digital comprehensive eye exams cost $65 and assess ocular alignment, pupil function, color vision and much more. Follow this link for more information.
Make a stride further to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays with a pair of JINS Switch eyewear. Available in various models, styles and colors, they do just as their name suggests, make a seamless switch between optical and sunglasses thanks to a tinted sunglass “switch” plate that effortlessly attaches directly to your frames.
UV rays are not the only menace out there, let’s not forget about noxious blue light. What is blue light you ask? It’s an invisible glare given off by our digital and smart device screens that is absorbed through the eyes. Exposing our peepers over long periods of “screen time” may cause damage. Protect your eyes and reduce eye strain with JINS SCREENs available in “ready-to-wear”, non-prescription models and as a lens that may be added to any JINS frame.
It doesn’t matter if you wear glasses (yet) or not. Taking care of our baby blues, greens, or browns will never be a waste of time and eye health should never go ignored. Sight, even if it isn’t 20/20, is a precious gift to be cared for. So why not kill two birds with one stone by having 2020 NOW examine your eyes in store today. Who’s with us? There is no time like the present, so contact your local certified eye-care professional today to schedule an exam. Your eyes will thank you later. When was the last eye-exam you had?
