With Beach Eye Care's Dr. Ben Pezik

Q: I really enjoy my winter
activities, such as skiing and
snowmobiling, but foggy glasses are
always an issue. What can help?

Mary, Collingwood

A: Glasses-free vision is desired by many.
Often this can be achieved with eye surgery.
Some people are not a good candidate for
elective eye surgery. As such, Contact
Lenses can be a great option to enjoy sport
activities or to create a new look for social
gatherings. Contact Lenses can be safe and
simple, even for those who have never worn
them before. Daily Contact Lenses can
be a great option for an occasional wearer.
A fresh pair of lenses each time you wear
maximizes comfort. When the lenses are
removed they are simply tossed to the waste.
This limits any potential for eye infection
and maximizes convenience and comfort.
A comprehensive eye exam can determine if
surgery or contacts is right for you.

will be my second Georgian Bay

A: Winter driving can be difficult and
dangerous. During the day when it is sunny
outside, there can be a great deal of glare
reflected off the snow. Polarized sunglasses
works best to cut out this glare. With
evenings starting sooner we do much more
night driving during the winter months.
The best way improve night driving is
prescription eyewear with
