Eye examinations are kind of the bread and butter of what we do. Yes, beyond the pretty walls of our lobby, lined with hundreds of stylish frames and lens options, there are rooms and suites filled with cutting edge equipment. This equipment is all designed to aid in the examination, measuring, and diagnosing your eyes.

As we say goodbye to the summer months and step once more into the brisk, chilly Nevada air, we all look forward to a season full of holidays, starting with the fan favorite: Thanksgiving. A perfect blend of friend and family gathering, food, football, and an afternoon nap. Is there a more perfect day?
Halloween is just around the corner, and as we start to wrap up production for our costumes this year, we decided to do a deep dive on everyone’s favorite costume accessory. Yes, of course we’re talking about costume contacts.
Last week, our team had the chance to go to Vision Expo West: the premiere exposition for optometry. Everything new in the world of glasses comes through Vision Expo and we have a lot to share! In our latest blog, we asked all our staff members what they found exciting about Vision Expo and what you might expect in the near future in eyewear technology!
Today is the day! The day we’ve all been waiting for is finally here! Yes, the Downton Abbey movie has hit the big screen and will take you right back to the 1920s English countryside! To celebrate, we thought it only fitting to host a photo contest!
Starting today until October 20th 2019, we want you to send us your best eyewear selfies. The rules are simple: include #DowntonVision in your selfie posts! That’s it! We’ll select winners shortly after the contest ends!
Today, we take eyewear a little bit for granted. Endless styles, futuristic technology, and availability to everyone. Glasses are a common commodity, and the world can see better because of it. But for the next few minutes, let us transport you to the 1910s and 1920s, where optometry innovations made glasses mainstream and fashionable. With Downton Abbey releasing this Friday, we thought it was only appropriate to turn the dials on our time machine and learn about optometry of the era, the technology behind eyeglasses at the time, and then style of the age.
The second Starbucks whips out the Pumpkin Spice Latte, fall has begun. No more shall we abide by the Gregorian Calendar. No longer shall we be held hostage by outdated fashion rules that ban wearing white past Labor Day! Begone, September 21st! You are no longer the signifier of autumn! Fall is a season known for warm colors despite the cooler weather (something I’m sure we can all agree we’re ready for here in Reno).
Here at Downtown Vision, we give a lot of love for the four-eye world. With so many styles of frames to choose from and customizable lens options like transitions, not to mention using the latest high-tech instrumentation for eyewear, it’s no secret: we’re Reno’s go-to spot for glasses. But our passion for eyes goes much further than just glasses.
Friends. It is OFFICIALLY back-to-school season. For kids, teenagers, and college students alike, August marks the end of summer and the beginning of a new school year. It’s also coincidently Children’s Eye Health Month, which brings us to today’s topic: children’s eye health.
It surrounds us; it flows through us; it binds the galaxy together… okay, maybe not that last one. And no, we’re not talking about the Force today. What this is referring to is the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS)! Yes, our good friend from our HEV article from long ago and far, far away.
