The Importance of Wearing Sunglasses
Sunglasses look cool, but their cosmetic effect is not the only reason you should wear them. The darker lenses provide necessary protection from UV rays and help reduce the effects of bright sunlight on your eyes. Not only do sunglasses increase your comfort level on bright days, but they also protect your eyeballs against potential future health problems. At EYECARE for You in Richboro, our optometrist can evaluate your eyes and set you up with prescription sunglasses. If you don't need a prescription, you can still come in and get advice on choosing the right pair of sunglasses.
Ultraviolet rays and glare are two things you need to avoid. UV rays can lead to cataract formation and other eye damage. If you normally wear glasses, those lenses should all have an anti-UV coating. If you don't normally wear glasses, then getting a pair of good sunglasses with an anti-UV layer is essential to your future eye health. Even if you don't need a prescription from an eye doctor, you can consult with an optometrist and an optician to find the right pair.
Harsh reflections and bright light can effectively burn your eyes. This is a real condition called photo keratitis, commonly known as sunburn for your eyes. It occurs when you're exposed to UV rays and bright light without sufficient protection. Dark sunglasses with UV protection are necessary to prevent this kind of damage to your eyes.
Sunglasses also cut down on the halo effect you can get from glare on extremely bright days. You won't be able to look directly at a light, of course, but you can cut down on some of that starburst effect you might otherwise see.

Dr. Joyce is the most compassionate, caring person I have ever met. She is very intelligent, explains the eye tests and results, and offers suggestions to keep my eyes healthy. I consider her a friend as well as a fabulous eye doctor.
Dr. Joyce was affable and professional. Most thorough eye exam I’ve experienced. State of the art facilities. Friendly and knowledgeable office staff. Highly recommended.
Very professional & friendly staff, very clean office with top of the line eye care equipment for extremely thorough eye care exam. Dr. Joyce in addition to examining my eye sight reviewed very detailed results of my overall eye health.
The staff are friendly and competent. Dr Joyce takes time to explain any tests that were performed. Great experience.
Very thorough. explained what is going on with my vision and was able to fit me with contact lenses that feel great and now have no need for reading glasses.
Dr. Joyce is top notch and has all of the cutting-edge technology. I also bring my children to her. We used to see her when she was at Schwartz Eyecare in Newtown and we were thrilled when she opened her office in Richboro...even closer to us! You'll be well taken care of if you choose her as your ophthalmologist....
of the best, most thorough, articulate, accessible doctors I’ve ever seen. Her office is packed full of state of the art cool eye tools that provide incredible insight (oops... pun actually works) and she explains so that this non-medical patient can understand. This exam was most comprehensive. One of my eye doctors is a friend and even when visiting him in Santa Monica office, the time Dr Joyce spent with me was comparable. I only wish she had more specialties (e.g. dermatology, podiatry). I’m a patient now so I feel safe. You better call for an appointment now lest she stops taking new patients. Thank you, Dr Joyce!...
Dr Joyce was extremely pleasant, informative, thorough and professional. She took the time to go over all of my test results and explain what they meant. She was able to identify some personal care items that I could do to improve my particular concern. I was very impressed with her personal approach to her practice and patients....
This was my first time at Eyecare For You. The facility was very clean and the office staff pleasant. The young man who I was with in the beginning to do the initial check in process was very efficient, professional and it was very evident that he took his job seriously. I especially liked that he cleaned off each piece of equipment prior to my resting my chin and forehead on them. Dr Joyce was also very professional and personable. Her work ethic was spot on, and she explained each process very clearly and made sure I understood before she moved on to the next section. The equipment seemed to be the most current and I was overall very impressed with the care I received here. I will be returning....
Excellent experience with Dr Joyce and others on the staff. No need to get records transferred from previous eye care center. Eyecare For You appears to have the latest hi-tech testing equipment and will determine the best option(s) to improve your vision to its maximum capability. I expect my new prescription glasses with anti-glare coating will minimize glare at night and should allow me to see better than ever. Cost was very reasonable. I have already recommended two friends to call for an appointment ASAP....
Dr. Kathleen Joyce is absolutely amazing! I haven't seen her in over 2 years but she still made me feel like I just saw her last week. She pays attention to details and makes you excited to see her in the office! She really goes the extra mile
