Course Description

What do we have to offer patients for the best acuity, comfort, and eye protection when they’re enjoying the great outdoors or driving? Answer: Polarized, Polarized, and Polarized!

We craft eyewear to help patients see their best and feel their best and look their best and when we add the benefit of protecting their eyes from harmful rays and impact injury, Eureka!, we strike optical gold!

In this course, we will review the patient benefits to be derived from wearing sunglasses with protection from polarized glare, light protection (UV and Blue) and impact protection.
