Welcome back to the Encouragement Series of blog posts today! Hopefully this will brighten your day, even though it's not really related to eyecare. Feel free to "like" and share on social media so that your friends can receive the same encouragement.The Making of a Symphony
Now, I won't claim to be especially well-versed in music, though I did play the Viola back in junior high school. So that makes me an expert, right?! However, there are a few concepts I want to bring up that we can see...Read More
I can’t believe it is already late-November. As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, that means it’s almost time for the end of the year. Optometry is historically very busy at the end of the year because, you guessed it…flex spending accounts expire December 31, 2019. At ModernEyes Eyecare + Eyewear, we want to help you make sure your flex dollars go the farthest because if you don’t use ‘em, you lose ‘em.
Make an appointment to update your prescription and check your eye health soon before...Read More
In addition to January being National Glaucoma Month, it is National Optician Month. Although glaucoma is an important eye health issue (more information can be found here from the American Optimetric Association), I’d like to focus on our amazing staff here at ModernEyes Eyecare & Eyewear.ADAM MARTINEZ Optician and Lab Technician
Let’s start with Adam! Adam has been with us since before Dr. Reed and her husband opened the office. He was an integral part of our initial frame...Read More
The fall brings on so many warm feelings. We start seeing the beautiful autumn colors and finding pumpkin spice flavored and scented items everywhere—or maybe in your opinion the pumpkin spice thing has gone too far, which I can totally agree that pumpkin spice flavored dog treats are probably not necessary! In any case, fall also means it's time for football! Oh, and your kids may be resuming their fall-season sports (fall is not only about Husker football!). September is Sports Eye...Read More
Wow, demand for Eclipse Glasses totally out-paced our expectations! Being a small, new office, we initially just ordered a relatively small amount to start with, because we thought a few people may be interested, and we wanted to make sure to help them protect their eyes from damage while enjoying the Great American Eclipse experience here in Nebraska. Since then, we've reordered several times! Now, we have run up to the time limit in which we cannot get any...Read More
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
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

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
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
