Iron Horse Restaurant - A Hidden Gem

If you're looking for a great lunch spot before or after an appointment at our Olathe office, Iron Horse Restaurant has long been a favorite of the doctors at Grin Eye Care.  We'd like to congratulate our neighborhood favorite on their recent write-up in The Kansas City Star.  This family owned restaurant, located at 918 E. Old 56 Highway in Olathe, features the best Chinese food in town, in our opinion.

Michael Kors

We are very excited to announce that we now carry Michael Kors frames in both of our locations! There are many new styles in both plastic and metal. Some of the frames are more traditional, while others have the on-trend two-tone color scheme. Of course, we offer fabulous Michael Kors sunglasses as well.

Glaucoma Awareness Month

Did you know that January is Glaucoma Awareness Month? There are more than 2.5 million American adults with glaucoma. It is sometimes know as the "sneak thief of sight", since it often goes unnoticed until too late. Glaucoma is the leading cause of preventable blindness in the United States.  Routine eyecare can help detect glaucoma early and prevent vision loss.

When you come in for an appointment, you will be given a username and password.

Should I Be Taking Eye Vitamins?

One of the more common questions we hear from patients is, "should I be taking vitamins for my eyes?"  The advertising for vitamins that promote eye health is everywhere.  The truth is, not everyone needs an eye vitamin and not all eye vitamins are created equally.

Rockstars Need Eye Exams Too

Bono, the frontman of U2, recently revealed the reason behind his omnipresent sunglasses - he has glaucoma. Due to his twenty year history of glaucoma, Bono is very sensitive to bright lights and camera flashes. For that reason, he dons his famous shades wherever he goes.
