We carry a frame line called Youth Force by Wiley X. These glasses are specifically designed to withstand the impacts received during sports, both...Read More
This time last month, we were almost finished with the OneSight clinic I mentioned in an earlier blog post. If you didn't read the full post, here is a quick summary: OneSight is a charitable organization that provides comprehensive exams and a brand new pair of glasses to those in need. OneSight works locally, nationally, and globally. On past clinics, I have had the opportunity to serve for two weeks in Xi'an, China, and was the Lead Optometrist twice in Omaha now.
For this clinic, we had...Read More
Android 7.0 (Nougat), Google's most recently released Android operating system includes a toggle called "Blue Light Filter." Many Samsung Galaxy S7 owners (and owners of other Android phones) have recently received the update to this version, however even in some of Samsung's other recently released smartphones before Nougat they included a "Blue Light Filter" feature. Clearly Samsung and Google both think this is an...Read More
For those of you who know me, you know that I am very passionate about giving back to the community when I am able. Coming up in the next few weeks, I will be out of the office for a week to spend the week volunteering as the lead optometrist for a clinic here in Omaha. The clinic is put on with the cooperation of two non-profits, OneSight and Building Healthy Futures....Read More

A lot has happened at the office since we posted about Pokémon and vision. If you haven’t read that post, please go check it out.
At the time of our initial post, the only thing to post pictures of was the exterior signage. So I will take you through the various different phases of construction, to give you a "behind the scenes" look, complete with pictures!Concrete and Plumbing
First, the walls were drawn out on the floor, along with the paths that some of the plumbing would follow. Some...Read More
If you haven’t heard of the new augmented reality game called Pokémon Go that is all the craze, we need to get you up to speed by having you check out this article. I’ll refrain from informing you that you’ve been living under a rock, as you’re also not likely to be reading this blog.
What on earth does this super addicting game have to do with anything eye related? Well, in order to “catch ‘em all,” you have to physically move around to find the Pokémon. If you haven’t witnessed people...Read More
Can we just have a light conversation about something that comes up at least once a day with patients? It is inevitable. At some point, usually more than once, I’ll have a patient inform me that the “Which is better, 1 or 2?” test stresses him or her out to the point that they hate coming to the eye doctor. Let me take a few minutes to put your mind at ease.
First, I promise you, we are not trying to stress you out. Or trick you. Seriously, we aren’t. When the options get really similar and...Read More
Our outdoor sign is now fully installed! Previously the "Eyecare + Eyewear" portion had yet to be installed. We're excited to share our brand and image to passers-by on Q Street near 192nd Street. For those of you who are just finding out about our new practice, in prepration for opening, I'd like to share a few thoughts related to our name. For those Shakespeare buffs, I present the question "What's in a name?" In Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, the phrase was to...Read More
We are super excited for the public’s first glimpse of our new office and image. ModernEyes is a new optometry practice, founded by myself (Dr. Kristin Reed) and my husband, Josh Reed. Our exterior signage is mostly installed and should be finished in the next day or two. We are currently waiting for our construction permits to come back so we can get the interior space built out. If all goes well, we will be ready to serve you in late summer or early fall of 2016. Be sure to check out our...Read More
