Christmas Gift Ideas to Support Visual Health

  • By:Dr. Katie Dugan

Christmas is coming soon, and many people are finalizing a few more gifts before the holiday. Are you trying to choose the perfect gift for someone that you love? Consider the option to offer something that will support their vision.

Here are a few ideas:

Designer Eye Glasses

Glasses are more than just functional… they offer many different stylistic benefits as well. If the person likes wearing eyeglasses as an accessory, then you might give them name-brand frames. Choose a frame design that you think they will like, or bring them to our office to select a frame.


Sun exposure can be harmful to the eyes, so it is important to wear protective lenses when spending time outside. As you are shopping for sunglasses, look for lenses that are polarized to maintain protection while maximizing vision at the same time. If the person wears corrective lenses, then you can have prescription sunglasses made so that they don’t need to wear contact lenses in conjunction with the sunglasses.

Sunglasses are important for eye health, and they are also a stylish way to set the trend. Consider the style and design of the sunglasses to ensure that the person will want to wear them.

Laser Eye Surgery

Give the person the freedom to live without wearing glasses or contacts. Laser eye surgery is a great gift that they will enjoy for the rest of their life. You can provide a gift certificate for the service, or offer a card to say that you will pay for the surgery. Include more information for them to learn about the options, such as a pamphlet highlighting the treatments that are available.
