We were in their Community Room and were able to screen over a dozen of the residents, checking their vision, pressure for glaucoma and cataracts. Dr. Chung was also available to answer their individual eye health questions.

We were treated to refreshments and some home-baked goodies! Thank you to the staff of Ipswich Drive, we look forward to seeing you again soon!

D'Ambrosio Eye Care at Leominster High School

This week we had a team of ophthalmic technicians at Leominster Senior High School for the school annual Health Fair.

We provided vision screenings to over 80 students during the fair! It's a great opportunity for us to be able to remind students to wear their glasses or contacts, as this is the age they are preparing for their driver's license, or already have one. It's a good reminder of how important it is for them to see clearly to instill the necessary confidence behind the wheel.

Frame manufacturers have definitely taken the needs and desires of the "tween" generation into consideration. We carry several lines that are perfect for this age group coupled with our "Parents Painless Growth Program" for lens changes making a good deal for parents.

Eye Health Vitamins: MacularProtect Plus

Powerful Protection For Your Sight

MacularProtect Plus is a powerful nutritional formulation developed to help preserve your macular health. Based on the most advanced scientific research, MacularProtect Plus delivers a robust combination of antioxidants and minerals including lutein; vitamins A, C and E; zinc; copper and selenium – key nutrients found to play a significant role in eye health.

The Science Behind MacularProtect Plus

MacularProtect Plus is based on the findings of the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS), a clinical trial supported by the National Eye Institute, and also embraces other advanced science. The long-term AREDS clinical trial showed that patients taking supplementary antioxidants combined with zinc had a better chance of retaining their macular health and vision than those who received only zinc, antioxidants alone, or a placebo.

MacularProtect Plus is an appropriate choice for smokers and non-smokers alike.
