Today I was thinking about my friends in Keene, NH. Talked to them today as a matter of fact (fantasy football-related). When we would go over to visit my good friends Kristin and Eric, one of them would always ask me how the eyeballs were that day. “Much better now”, I would jokingly say. So in thinking about that, I thought it would be fun to do a daily eyeball report to share what I had learned during each day. Easy way to update the blog more often, right?
So here goes:
Tango. Zebra. Edward. Victor. Charlie. Lima.
Music to my ears when I’m at our Los Patios Vision Source office off of N.E. Loop 410 and Starcrest. That tells me that a San Antonio police officer has read the 20/20 line (TZVECL) and should have great vision with his or her new prescription. In 12-plus years of helping people with their vision, I’ve never seen a better group of folks. I might have thought that police officers might be too high-strung to relax when they come in, but they and their families are some of the most polite and respectful group of patients I’ve ever seen. It’s a pleasure to help them.
They come to see us for two reasons. One is that the San Antonio Police Officer’s Assocation is located within our building. And two is that Dr. Mervyn Bloom treats all of them like family. It’s been great.
Today was a busy day of eye exams, with a foreign body removal and an eye infection sprinkled in.
I’m having more and more success with the Air Optix Multifocals. I wrote one of my first blog posts back in 2010 http://eyedocdeviney.com/?s=air+optix as it was just coming out and we’ve learned more tricks to get them to work well. We can fit most prescriptions with trial lenses the same day. But if you have a little astigmatism, your chances of success does go down a little.
Currently, we are having a promotion with Ciba contacts. When combined with a purchase of new glasses, patients can save up to $200 combined. Details vary depending on the type of contacts and glasses purchased.
Otherwise back to school eye exams are going to keep us busy for at least the next two weeks as students and teachers come in to prepare for the academic year. I would love to help you get your vision ready. Currently, I see patients at the Los Patios office on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and I see patients at the Alamo Heights Vision Source on Mondays and Thursdays. Hope to see you soon!
