As always when making changes, there can be some hiccups along the way and we appreciate your patience as we work out any issues 🙂

EZO is Growing!

To Our Valued Customers,

Our small family owned business is growing and we are making some major changes to our business model in order to improve our customer experience for both our local customers and our internet customers.

For our internet customers: We will be offering “Frame Only” orders and will discontinue prescription lens options and some of the “Special Order” products to eliminate long wait times.  We will revisit this decision after we have added more trained staff to process specialty items and provide the attention they deserve.

For our local customers:  We have moved our service locations to N. Conway, Tamworth, and Union/Wakefield with “Walk-In” hours at each location.  We accept the following insurances at those locations:  MaineCare, NH Medicaid, Spectera, Well Sense and some Davis Vision Plans.  Complete details can be found on our website / Local Optical Services.

August 2018 – Children’s eye health and safety month

Back to school! Good vision and overall eye health are vital to learning

Back-to-school time is just around the corner, and the scramble to buy school clothes and new pencils, backpacks and notebooks will begin. Ophthalmologists remind busy parents not to neglect one of the most important learning tools: their children’s eyes.

Good vision and overall eye health are vital to learning. E-Z Optical joins the American Academy of Ophthalmology in emphasizing the importance of healthy vision to academic success during Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month in August.

Because children are still growing, being vigilant about eye health is important. The earlier that problems are identified, the sooner they can be addressed. For children to maintain healthy eyes and vision throughout the school year, E-Z Optical and the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommend the following four tips:

  1. Get regular childhood vision screenings – Children’s eyes change rapidly, making regular vision screenings an important step in detecting and correcting eye problems early. In addition to screenings for infants, the Academy recommends further vision screening for children when they are:
    • Pre-school age, between age 3 and 3 and a half
    • Entering school
    • Experiencing a possible vision problem

For school-age children, a vision screening – which is less comprehensive than a dilated eye examination by an ophthalmologist, can be performed by a pediatrician, family physician, nurse or trained technician during regular checkups. If the screening detects a problem, the child may need to see an ophthalmologist – an eye physician and surgeon – or other eye care professional.

  1. Know and share your family eye health history – Everyone should find out whether eye conditions or diseases run in their family. Parents should share that information with the person performing the screening when possible. Examples of common eye conditions include nearsightedness, crossed eye, known as strabismus, and lazy eye, known as amblyopia. If these are not treated in childhood, they can cause permanent vision loss in one eye.
  1. Watch for signals of eye problems – Parents should be alert to symptoms that could indicate an eye or vision problem, such as complaints of eyestrain, headaches and squinting when reading or performing other common activities. Other symptoms to look for include a white or grayish-white coloring in the pupil, one eye that turns in or out, or eyes that do not track in sync together.
  2. Wear protective eyewear when playing sports – Eye injuries while playing sports can cause serious damage, whether by getting smacked with an elbow during basketball or hit with a hockey stick. If your child plays racket sports, hockey, field hockey, baseball or basketball, consider having them wear goggles or other certified protective eyewear.
