In the article above from the New York Times, adults over the age of 75 are at a higher risk of death from a fall than they were almost 20 years ago. Key tips: Exercise!, Mind Your Meds, Re-Accessorize, Eliminate Tripping Hazards, and Hydrate and go Early and Often to the Bathroom.

Wednesday June 27th is National Sunglasses Day!
Sunglasses keep your eyes healthy by protecting them from harmful UV rays. To prevent UV-related eye damage, sunglasses should become part of each day’s “out-the-door” routine. UV damage is cumulative, occurring over a lifetime of exposure. Children are extra vulnerable, so get them in the habit of wearing sunglasses early! This will help to mitigate serious vision problems in the future.

KC Eye Clinic and Zeiss are excited to bring our patients the latest in laser vision correction.
What is SMILE?
SMILE is the latest in laser vision correction for myopia (nearsghtedness), providing LASIK-like outcomes in a minimallyinvasive procedure. A laser is used to create a thin contact-lensshape layer just beneath the surface of the eye and then a small opening through which that layer is removed, correcting your vision. Worldwide, over 750,000 SMILE procedures have been performed by more than 1,000 surgeons. And these numbers continue to grow every day! In fact, SMILE is the fastest-growing laser vision correction.
What are the differences between LASIK and SMILE?
Corneal Flap is made and then the corneal surface is treated with the excimer laser.
Small opening in the cornea is made, and then the treated layer is removed through the incision.
If you are interested in laser vision correction, please call Mary Galloway at 913.322.9141 for more information and to schedule your free pre-screening. Also ask about our seminar and how to save $500 off* your total procedure!

Choosing a Lens Color
Light conditions are constantly changing. To get the most out of Costa Lenses, it’s important to choose the right color. We offer six lens colors that range from low-light like dawn to extremely bright light with blinding glare.
For offshore, blue mirror is the way to go. For freshwater and inshore, green mirror and copper are great options. For low light at dawn or dusk, sunrise is perfect. Gray lenses are the best choice for everyday activities. Of course, the best way for you to decide is to consider your environment.
Our mirrors are more than an aesthetic, they put Costa on the map. Made through a high-tech beam ion deposition process, these multilayered thin film coatings make for the most scratch resistant mirrors out there. By bouncing reflected light away from the eye, they deliver superior contrast and color while enhancing visual acuity. Our mirrors are available in blue, green, silver sunrise and silver copper.
