We are just 6-weeks away from the date that marks the official change in seasons and the first day of fall in Colorado (9/22/22). Cooler temps are on their way and soon the Colorado Front Range will be ablaze with vibrant hues of red, orange, and yellow as the leaves change color. Not only is fall a beautiful time of year, but it’s also a great time to get outside and experience all the fun activities that Colorado has to offer like fishing, hunting, skiing, and golfing. That’s why now is the perfect time to visit Stack Optical in Denver for your annual eye exam!

My team and I will provide you with the dedicated care and attention you need to stay active and healthy this fall season. We’ll do a thorough check-up on your eye health and can even provide you with prescription sports glasses designed specifically for the outdoor activities you enjoy!

Get Ready for Fall with an Eye Exam

Fall is a busy time of year for many of us. By the time that September rolls around, the school year is in full swing, adding to the busy schedule of families and parents. Furthermore, fall is also when temperatures cool down, making it more enjoyable to be outdoors. It’s also when the hunting season starts for deer, elk, bear, and moose.

In order for these activities to be successful, you’ll need to be able to see clearly and have good vision. That’s why now is a great time to come see us for an eye exam at Stack Optical. We’ll examine your eyes and check to make sure that each component is healthy and functional. We’ll also check your vision to make sure that you’re seeing clearly and ask you about any changes or symptoms you may be experiencing. Lastly, we’ll check for any potential concerns and signs of disease, so that we can address issues while they are still in the early stages.

The Importance of Regular Eye Exams

Regular eye exams are important for maintaining good vision and eye health. An optometrist can check your eyes to make sure they are working properly, are in good health, and are free of any signs of disease or conditions that may affect your vision. An eye exam also allows can determine whether you need prescription glasses or contacts. Or, if you already wear glasses/contacts, we can make sure that you have the right prescription for your needs and, if necessary, make adjustments that allow you to see clearer.

In general, regular eye exams allow for:
• Detection of vision problems
• Adjustments to current prescriptions or eyewear
• Thorough assessment of your eye health
• Early detection of glaucoma, cataracts, undiagnosed problems, and disease

Vision Care & Prescriptions

Based on your eye health and the results of your exam, I may make recommendations for improving your vision. My team and I will work closely with you to determine the best prescription based on your eyesight and individual needs. When we do this, we take your lifestyle and any medical conditions you may have into careful consideration. We focus not only on your eye health, but also your overall wellness, happiness, and quality of life. Our goal is to help you stay healthy so you can enjoy life to the fullest.

Sports Glasses for Hunting, Fishing & Outdoor Activities

If you’re the type of person that enjoys hunting, fishing, golfing, or outdoor sports, Stack Optical can provide you with prescription sports glasses to make your outdoor activities more enjoyable.

Stack Optical offers prescription sports glasses that are:

• Impact and UV resistant
• Multifocal for more accurate sighting
• Available in various tints (dark, clear, yellow, etc.)
• Option for interchangeable lenses (Stack Sports Pack kit)

I, myself, am an experienced shooter and outdoor enthusiast. Therefore, I understand the unique needs that sportsmen have when it comes to their eyewear as well as the shortcomings of the generic options out there today.

My optical industry expertise allows me to create customized eyewear that suits my patients’ lifestyles. If you are a sportsman, I can create specialized glasses that allow you to see both the sight and the target clearly. Your glasses can be customized not only for your prescription, but also based on the type of firearm you use, your stance, and typical shooting conditions.

In order to be able to focus on both the sight and target, you may need a multifocal lens. I can design a lens that has a bifocal at the top (rather than the bottom) for more accurate sighting. I can also design your lens to be tinted, which can help you aim and shoot better by increasing contrast, reducing glare, and preventing eye strain.

Some sportsmen find themselves shooting in all different types of weather and lighting conditions. For this type of outdoorsman, I recommend the Stack Sports Pack. This is a specialized kit that allows you to change your lenses as needed throughout the day depending on the lighting and conditions you’re shooting in.

Prescription sports glasses are useful not only for hunters, but also people who enjoy other outdoor sports like fishing, golfing, skiing, mountain biking, etc. They’re made with impact resistant lenses that also block UV rays. Because of the nature of outdoor sports, it’s important to protect your eyes not only from immediate threats, but also those that may affect your health and vision over time.
