South Georgia/North Florida Optical Shops: Our Focus is on You

Monday, August 20th, 2018 

Ideally, an optical shop would be well-stocked with hundreds of stylish frames, staffed with experts to help fit your glasses and teach you about them as well, and in a convenient location. South Georgia/North Florida is pleased to provide all of these things for our patients – and in five locations!  Currently Eye Partners has Optical Shops in Valdosta, Tifton, Douglas, Moultrie and Madison, Florida.

All of our optical shops offer excellent patient care provided by our knowledgeable and personable Opticians and onsite labs at four of our five shops for quick-turnaround and quality control. We strive to educate our patients about the state of the art Digital High Definition Lenses we carry and the treatments available for their lenses to enhance their visions.  This helps improve the quality of life for our patients in their daily routines – work, home or play!

We carry a large variety of eyewear in all of our shops. Safety and Sports glasses are available for a wide range of task-specific activities.  We also stock contact lenses (whether dailies or soft monthly wear, gas permeable or scleral) and specialty fit contact lenses as well.  BluTech Lenses, both prescription and non prescription, are available and highly recommended by our staff to filter out the harmful Blue Light emitted by all the devices we use on a daily basis such as computers, cell phones, tablets and LED lights.

All optical shop locations also have a huge sunglass wall full of the latest nonprescription sunglasses for your eye protection and eye health.  Our shops carry many brand names as well as basic frames – something for every budget.  Some name brands we carry are:  Tom Ford, Persol, Prada, Tiffany & Co., Tory Burch, Coach, Miu Miu, Versace, Ray Ban, Oakley, Jimmy Choo, Moncler, Silhouette, Tommy Hilfiger, Brooks Brothers, BCBG, Costa del Mar and many others.

South Georgia/North Florida Eye Partners accepts most insurance plans and offer a package for any budget.  We accept outside prescriptions and walk-ins are welcome.  We’d love for you to make us your destination for all your eye care needs. We look forward to meeting you and making your experience with us rise above the rest.  See you there!

Be UV Protected: SGEP's Sunglasses Shopping Guide

Friday, April 11th, 2014 
Costa.jpg_1314894236People sometimes buy sunglasses the way they buy the rest of their fashion accessories:  get a new pair every spring with an emphasis on fashion over function.  South Georgia Eye Partners wants to be sure to remind you about the effects that ultraviolet (UV) radiation can have on your eyes and vision.
While doctors advise the use of eye protection, the multi-billion dollar sunglass industry is anything but easy to navigate.  The American Optometric Association (AOA) has important information on sunglass function that can make sunglass shopping easier.  Keep in mind that sunglass function and fashion are not incompatible – SGEP”s Optical Shop is stocked with hundreds of fashionable brand name sunglasses that will keep you at the fashion forefront while protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays.
Why You Need Sunglasses:
  • UV Protection.  The sun”s UV radiation can cause cataracts; benign growths on the eye”s surface; cancer of the eyelids and skin around the eyes; and photokeratitis, sometimes called snow blindness, which is a temporary but painful sunburn of the eye”s surface.  Wide-brimmed hats and caps can block about 50% of UV radiation but optometrists say that is not enough.
  • Blue-Light Protection.  Long term exposure to the blue and violet portion of the solar spectrum has been implicated as a risk factor for macular degeneration especially for individuals that are “sun sensitive.”
  • Comfortable vision.  The sun”s brightness and glare interferes with comfortable vision and the ability to Today’s roads and the practical traffic school online is very different from that of a generation ago (parents please note!). see clearly by causing people to squint and the eyes to water.
  • Dark adaptation.  Spending just two or three hours in bright sunlight can hamper the eyes” ability to adapt quickly to nighttime or indoor light levels.  This can make driving at night after spending a day in the sun more hazardous.
People should wear sunglasses outdoors whether they are working, driving, participating in sports, taking a walk, running errands or doing anything in the sun.
What You Need in Your Sunglasses
People need sunglass lenses that:
  • Block 99 to 100% of both UV-A and UV-B radiation
  • Screen out 75 to 90% of visible light
  • Are perfectly matched in color and absorption and are free of distortion and imperfection
  • Are gray for proper color recognition
