Started March of 2006 and headquartered in San Francisco, CA, Twitter has grown into a real-time short messaging service that works over multiple networks and devices.

August is National Cataract Awareness Month and with the summer months approaching, ECANJ would like to stress the importance of wearing the correct sunglass lenses to protect your eyes. Daily exposure to the invisible ultraviolet rays (UV) of the sun can cause serious long-term damage to your eyes.

UVA and UVB rays are absorbed by several structures in the eye. Studies have shown that exposure to UV rays is one of the causes of cataracts and possibly cause macular degeneration. Just as you protect your skin with sunscreen, protect your eyes with UV−filtering sunglass lenses. At Eye Care Optical, we suggest polarized lenses and anti-glare coating. As part of our commitment to all our patients, we are offering a 10% discount on the purchase of sunglasses through Eye Care Optical. Just bring your copy of the newsletter to the optical shop to get your discount on a stylish pair of sunglasses.
