Protecting Your Eyes

tennis largeDid you know…

  • Nearly half of traumatic eye injuries relate to ball sports
  • 45% of these occur in children under the age of 14
  • 90% of these are preventable

Polycarbonate is a lens material that is widely used for shatter-and-impact resistant lenses, and when combined with sturdy frame materials, makes for formidable eye protection.

There are hazards of sunlight and bright light that are harder to understand; namely, ultraviolet rays (UV) and Glare (extreme brightness). Protecting your eyes from these distracting, even dangerous elements is equally important to eye protection.


A Message to Our Patients

We are pleased to announce that TSO Wichita Falls is now open for eye care and eye examinations. Our new office hours are Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm.

For the Protection of Our Patients, we kindly ask the following:

  • Social Distancing - we are limiting the number of appointments and patients in our office and are asking, when possible, only one person enter our clinic for their visit.
  • Curbside Service - we will bring your glasses or contacts out to your car, without you ever having to get out of the car.
  • Fever Free Environment - anyone showing signs of illness including coughing, sneezing, fever, or general malaise will be asked to return when feeling well.

We are all in this together and appreciate your understanding as we do our part during this challenging time. We look forward to serving your eye care and optical needs soon.

Sincerely,
TSO Wichita Falls
