With finals week almost here, college students around Northern Colorado will begin thinking about their summer plans and whether they will stay in the area or travel back home. Regardless of where they are, many students will be looking for summer work to supplement the cost of next year’s tuition and books. At Advanced Eyecare – your vision center in Fort Collins – we want to make sure everyone can see better during their summer job, no matter if it’s landscaping or doing data entry for their parents’ company.

If you’re working outside, it’s important to have proper eye protection, both from the sun and flying objects. If you’re mowing or landscaping, safety glasses are a must, so that  stray rock or stick doesn’t hit you in the eye. If you wear contacts, you can save your eyes from damage by wearing sunglasses while driving, and we can make sure that your prescription is up-to-date before the semester ends. If you’re going to be sitting in an office all summer, we can recommend the proper specs for working on a computer all day, as well as things to do to avoid straining your eyes and negatively affecting your sight.

The end of the spring semester will be here before you know it, and if you need an eye exam or new glasses before starting your summer job, visit your vision center in Fort Collins today. We’re conveniently located on College Avenue in Old Town, and you can make an appointment time that works for you. We look forward to helping you see better this summer!
