Coronavirus update:

In times of crisis, it is important to come together to care for one another. We are committed to the safety and health of our team, our patients, and our community. As new guidelines emerge from the CDC, we have been advised to postpone routine eye care. By limiting the number of patients and team members in our current open clinics and maintaining our rigorous disinfecting procedures, we are confident we can safely care for patients still in need of our services.

For all of our patients the Chaska, Glencoe, and Hutchinson clinics remain open Monday through Friday 8:30-5:00 with reduced services. We ask that you call before coming to our clinics so we can best meet your needs. We may be able to accommodate your product requests by drive up service or shipping directly to your home.

We will continue to care for patients that may require the following services: blurred vision, broken glasses without back up, low stock of contact lenses, red or irritated eyes, trauma, postoperative care, continuing care of diabetics, glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration and other eye diseases.

We truly appreciate your patience as we all work through this unprecedented yet tumultuous time.

No Glare Lenses

Have you ever experienced blinding reflections in your lenses from oncoming traffic while driving at night? No-glare, also referred to as an anti-reflective or AR treatment, is specially calculated to eliminate the glare on your lenses and increase the amount of light entering your eye. This is an important safety benefit for driving at night as no-glare lenses reduce annoying reflections and halos around lights.

Reducing glare is beneficial for many reasons. No-glare lenses improve the cosmetic appearance of your glasses by dampening the reflections that mask your eyes when someone is looking at you, making your eyes look more natural. Better yet, most premium no-glare lenses include a special coating that makes them easier to clean along with a two-sided scratch-resistant coating.

Cleaning No-Glare Lenses

Cleaning your no-glare lenses is easy! Always start by wetting the lens and clean it with a soft soap or approved cleaner from Southwest Eye Care. Don’t ever use window cleaner, or other harsh chemicals as they can damage the lens. Always use a soft, dry cloth to wipe the lenses clean. Never use facial tissue or paper towel as these materials can scratch your lenses.

Be sure to ask for a demonstration of no-glare lenses during your next visit to Southwest Eye Care!
