Wing Eyecare Celebrates 100 Years!



When Dr. Philip A. Wing began examining eyes and prescribing and making glasses in 1914, he could not have foreseen that his family practice would become the largest optometric group practice in the state of Ohio.  Dr. Philip A. Wing was one of the very first to be licensed in Ohio as an optometrist when licensing began.  He was an innovator then, providing the first “One Hour” glasses service ever by transporting his patient’s frames to a downtown lab and back the same day.  Years later, his son, Marvin Wing became the second optometrist in the family, practicing for years with his father.  In the mid-70’s, grandson Philip M. Wing joined the practice as the third generation family doctor.  It was Dr. Philip M. Wing’s vision of a multi-location group practice that initiated the opening of the second office on Colerain Avenue, managed by Dr. Thomas Nagy.  Since then, we have added 10 more Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky offices, serving over 50,000 patients each year.

This new year marks the 100th anniversary of our family practice.  To celebrate our 100th year, Wing Eyecare will be rewarding our patients for their loyalty in helping us grow over the years with 100 drawings to win free annual supplies of contact lenses.  We will also be coordinating through local charitable organizations to donate 100 free eye exams and 100 pair of glasses to the neediest in our community.  Come help us celebrate this important achievement and thank you for your past patronage.

What do you do when you're out of town and you're looking for a place to stay or looking up things to do?

When you're out of town (or even at home) trying to find a restaurant to eat at what do you typically do?

More and more people are turning to places like UrbanspoonYelp, and TripAdvisor to help make these kinds of decisions. Finding an eye doctor or any kind of health practice is no different. Today, online, local, and social reviews are more important than ever.

Facebook has recently made it even easier people to review your business and we ask that you take a minute of your time to do so. Next to the "Like" button there is now a "Review" button. Simply click on the button and another pop-up will appear for you to choose a star rating, fill out an optional feedback box, and that is it.

Maui Jim Sunglasses @ Wing Eyecare!

Wing Eyecare is proud to announce that our eye doctor locations will be carrying more Maui Jim sunglasses. We've posted quite a few of them on our Instagram, Flickr, and Tumblr pages. All of the Maui Jim sunglasses on those pages and more will be available in the offices this week.

To give you a little background on Maui Jim:


HOW IT ALL BEGAN

Now the fastest growing premium polarized sunglass maker in the world, Maui Jim got its start in 1980 as a small company selling sunglasses on the beach in Lahaina, Hawaii. Seeing a need in the market for technology that could combat intense glare and harmful UV while bringing the brilliant colors of the island to life, our fledgling company engineered the revolutionaryPolarizedPlus® lens. Incorporated into seven new sunglass styles, our Classic Collection was introduced. And with that, we have steadily built a cult following.

HIGH-PERFORMANCE MILESTONES

Over the years, Maui Jim has continued to offer our fans high-performance design developments. In 2004, PolarizedPlus®2 technology revolutionized the sunglass market - patented, color-enhancing treatments in the form of rare earth elements were added to our lenses to really pop the colors your eye takes in.

In 2006, our new 24,000 sq ft state-of-the-art direct surfacing lab was built to ensure precision prescription optics. A year later, we introduced MauiReaders®. MauiPassportTM  followed in 2008, offering prescription wearers wide views and outstanding acuity. That same year, our newMauiHTTM  lens brought clarity to low-light conditions.


IT’S ALL ABOUT THE VIEW

The Aloha Spirit permeates our philosophy at Maui Jim. Our “ohana” (Hawaiian for family) is passionate about creating the best sunglasses on the planet. Because at the end of the day, we want to see the world at its best - and we know that you do, too, no matter where you live. Aloha, friends!

Mobile Website Updated!

As expected, we've noticed a significant increase in mobile web traffic. We've updated our mobile website making it more visually appealing and added more content to provide you with more information.
m.wingeyecare.com/locations.html

The picture above shows what our 'Locations' page used to look like and what we modified. We've added images of the front of the offices to the page giving it more visual appeal.

m.wingeyecare.com/products.html
We've updated our 'Products' page look and replaced it with an additional 5 pages. We've added a page for contact lenses, eyeglasses, sunglasses, accessories, and included a page that lists some of our most popular brands.

m.wingeyecare.com/products/brands.html

The brands page also includes the ability to look at frames of that brand that we carry. Click on any of the brands that have 'Click for Flickr album' to see frames that we carry. More albums will be ready in the future.

m.wingeyecare.com/services.html

We've also updated our services page to make it more organized and included additional information. We've made eye exam information and pricing its own page, as well as added a page for medical services, Optikam, and the Optomap. For those of you that don't know, the Optikam is a digital measurement system that we use to get proper eye measurements for prescription eyewear. Optikam also gives our patients the ability to compare different frames side by side on their face and gives us the ability to show you the benefits of lens options such as anti-reflective lenses. The Optomap Retinal Exam provides a wide field view of the back of the eye that allows doctors to detect early eye diseases such as glaucoma. All of our doctors highly recommend the Optomap, however there is a small additional fee that insurance does not cover yet.

m.wingeyecare.com/instagram.html
On our sunglasses and eyeglasses page you may noticed that we've included a new page that has our Instagram feed in it. It gives us the ability to show you pictures of the latest eyeglasses and sunglasses that we carry. We also post pictures of our offices, equipment, and more!

We've made some other small changes to better your experience on the site, including changing the icons at the bottom of the screen, adding a Google +1 button, and changed the way our fields look on the appointment request page.

Visit our mobile website by visiting wingeyecare.com from your mobile device or directly by going to m.wingeyecare.com.

If you have any suggestions, comments, or questions please email us at wingeyecare@wingeyecare.com.

What Type of Contact Lenses Are Right For You?

Wing Eyecare Eye Doctors Recommend Daily Contact Lenses

We're always looking to find ways to better help educate our patients about eye care. We've added three new pages to our website that help explain the differences of daily, monthly, and bi-weekly contact lenses. For your convenience we've listed the content below:

Daily Contact Lenses
Daily contact lenses are highly recommended by Wing Eyecare eye doctors. They are the healthiest way to wear contact lenses, providing a clean, sterile new lens every morning. They are the most convenient way to wear contact lenses. No cleaning or storing required. Daily lenses are the most compliant way to wear contact lenses. Daily disposable wears are 98% more likely to follow the daily routine, giving them the healthiest experience.
Daily lenses are comfortable and affordable. Many daily disposable lenses cost about a $1 a pair. Some manufacturers also offer mail-in-rebates.
Daily contact lenses are:
  • The healthiest contact lens option available
  • Available for astigmatism and multi-focals.
  • Affordable (About $1/day)

Monthly Contact Lenses
Monthly contact lenses have a very easy, simple replacement schedule. Replace your monthly contact lenses on the first of each month. These lenses are recommended over two week (bi-weekly) lenses. While monthly lenses are preferred and recommended over bi-weekly lenses, they are still susceptible to over wear which can be harmful to your eye health. Please make sure you replace these lenses every 30 days or as instructed by your eye doctor and/or optician.
Monthly contact lenses are:
  • Available for astigmatism and multi-focals
  • Available in high-oxygen silicone/hydrogel materials.
  • Available in 30 day continuous wear or extended wear (24 hours a day, 7 days a week).
  • Lowest cost among annual supplies of contact lenses (12 pairs).

Bi-Weekly Contact Lenses
Two week replacement contact lenses have the least compliant modality. Many patients forget when to replace their lenses on a two week schedule. This can lead to over wearing your contact lenses. Over wearing contact lenses is very unhealthy for your eyes. By extending the wear of your contact lenses you can restrict the amount of oxygen that reach your eyes. This could possibly lead to a corneal infection. Replacing your contact lenses every two weeks is critical to your Eye Health.
Dr. Charles Slonim an opthamologist and University of South Florida professor says "People often use razors to the point where they can’t be used anymore — you often throw it out once it cuts you. Then you know it’s no longer good. You don’t have that option with contacts. Once you get to the point where it hurts, it could be too late.”
Bi-weekly contact lenses are:
  • Available for astigmatism and multi-focals
  • Available in high-oxygen silicone/hydrogel materials.

To find out what contact lenses are best for you please schedule an eye exam at www.wingeyecare.com
