Opening Day 2014
Joel Kestenbaum, OD


Guess what?  Its baseball season again.  The New York teams will be back in action soon in new stadiums and the fans will come out in droves to root for them.  I enjoy going to see the Yankees once in a while but I for one am a Mets fan.

So many of the patients I see in the office are wearing Mets or Yankees hats into the exam room.  Since I am a diehard Met fan, I always ask the Yankee fans to turn their hats backwards.  Of course it is a joke, but it does make it easier for me to see their eyes.

I think of baseball season as the start of a wonderful time of the year.  This has been a very harsh winter so people are looking forward to emerging from their winter gloom and doom.  Flowers start to bloom as the weather warms and people are starting to spend more time outdoors, exposed to more harmful ultraviolet rays and blue light.  Studies show that lifetime exposure to invisible ultraviolet rays and blue light is the main cause of cataracts and macular degeneration.  Protect yourself and your children.  Now is a great time to purchase those sunglasses that you have been putting off getting.  Get your eyes prepared to see the beauty that spring brings.  Make sure that the beauty that is spring and the games that you play or watch are seen at their best.

Have your eyes examined. Schedule an appointment for your children or your spouse if it has been more than a year since their last eye exam.
