Help Your Friends and Family Take Care of Their Eyes with These Great Gifts
If you have a long list of people to buy gifts for, it can be tough to find the perfect thing that is both meaningful and helpful to them. You don’t want to give a gift that someone will put in a drawer and forget about, and you definitely want to see their face light up when they open the present you carefully picked out and wrapped.
For a memorable gift this holiday season, consider these vision-related ideas from the laser vision correction team at Durrie Vision in Overland Park, Kansas.
Give the gift of style and eye protection this holiday season with a pair of sunglasses that feature UV ray protection. With so many brands, styles, and functions to choose from, you’ll find a pair for everyone you need to shop for.
For your athletic cousins, consider a pair of polarized sports sunglasses. For your high-fashion sister, opt for a designer brand in the trendiest style. And for dad, choose a pair of aviators he’ll cherish for years to come.
If your loved one has had laser vision correction, they’ll especially appreciate a pair of sunglasses to protect their eyes. The best part? They’ll enjoy them more than they ever have before because they no longer have to worry about switching out their regular eyeglasses for them.
Blue Light Blocker Glasses
Although hours spent on the computer or smartphone likely won’t permanently damage your vision, it can have unwanted side effects, like digital eye strain or headaches. Blue light blocker glasses can help reduce these repercussions. Their slightly yellow lenses balance out the blue light emitting from your screen and are meant to help relieve eye strain.
Blue light blocker glasses come in a variety of frame styles, so you can find some to complement every face shape. If you’re not sure what style frame to get, you can always give a gift card to an online retailer that specializes in them.
Reading Lamp with Built-In Phone Charger
A task lamp that properly illuminates a work space and reduces eye strain makes a fantastic gift for someone whose hobbies require precision or for someone working from home.
Opt for a modernized lamp that not only brightens the space, but also offers added features, like a wireless phone charger pad built into the base. Pieces that pull double duty are especially great for people who live in small spaces, like college students in dorms.
Eye strain is a very real problem, even for people who have achieved perfect vision with SBK Advanced LASIK surgery or other procedures. If your loved one spends their days reading and notices that their eyes feel tired afterward, a few large-print bestsellers make a great gift, especially when they’re written by a beloved author.
Most bookstores have a dedicated large-print section, or you can shop online to find a greater variety.
Window film isn’t just for cars! If your loved one spends lots of time indoors, the sun’s harmful rays can still damage their eyes. But window film for house windows can block 99 percent of these UV rays and reject heat from outdoors, keeping your friend or family member more comfortable.
You can install window film yourself, or call in a professional. Best of all, properly applied film will last for a decade or more, which makes it the gift that keeps on giving.
Stocking Stuffer Ideas
- Eyeglass repair kit. If your friend or family member won’t abandon their eyeglasses just yet, they’ll appreciate a repair kit complete with extra screws, a tiny screwdriver, nose bridge pads, cleaning wipes, and more, to help them take care of their specs.
- Sunglasses case. Unless you’re buying high-end sunglasses, they likely won’t come with their own case. To keep their sunglasses safe, your gift recipient will love a case that reflects their interests or aesthetic.
- Car visor clip. For the organization aficionado, a car visor clip is a smart accessory for keeping sunglasses within reach.
Pay for Part of Their Laser Vision Correction Procedure
Want your holiday gift to play a big role in your loved one’s life? Offer to pay a portion of their laser vision correction procedure, like SBK LASIK surgery or refractive cataract surgery. Every time they see clearly, they’ll think of your generosity!
You can either give them your contribution up front, or make a payment toward their procedure after they’ve scheduled it at Durrie Vision in Overland Park.
