Today is National Sunglasses Day! We encourage everybody to wear sunglasses when you're outside to protect your eyes from the u.v. rays of the sun.
A major new product alert: Transitions lenses now come in actual colors and mirrors! For those of you not familiar with the product, Transitions are plastic lenses that have the ability to change from light to dark as you go from indoors to outdoors. Previously they were only available in three "colors": gray, brown, and green. Now there will be a much larger selection of colors to choose from. One thing to keep in mind about Transitions lenses--they need U.V. radiation to be activated. Since most car windshields have U.V. coatings that prevent U.V. rays from entering the car, their effect while in the car will be limited. Another fact about Transitions--they work better in cold weather vs. warm weather, that is, they will get more dark outside when it is very cold vs. when it is very warm.

I decided it was time to add some personality and color to the boring exam room walls. Here is the new Star Trek/Tetris wall. As you are probably not aware, I'm a Star Trek fan going back many years, and here are some of the actors I've met from the show. Putting it up, it also brought back memories of playing Tetris at a younger age. I've also put up a separate section of celebrities and pro athletes I've met not pictured here. So if you're a Star Trek fan, come on in--we have lots to talk about! Live long and prosper! #Startrek
