Ready for Some SUN!

Have some safe summer fun in the sun!

 

Dr. Moran makes sure that every member of his team is well-taken care of!  To help insure a safe & happy 4th of July holiday, he gave us a special Independence Day gift…wide-brimmed hats to keep the sun off of our faces and out of our eyes!

When we hit the beach and the pool, we’ll be sure to complete the look by adding sunscreen and sunglasses with UV Protection to keep our skin and eyes safe from the damaging rays of the sun!

 

Dr. M always takes the time to show that he cares for his patients and his staff too!  So we weren’t surprised that he took an extra step to make sure that we will return from the holiday well-rested. The hats have a special “Do Not Disturb”  message on the brim!

Please note!  Our office will be closed Wednesday, July 4th and Thursday, 5th of July. We will re-open on Monday, July 9th. 

Enjoy the holiday!   From Dr. Moran and the rest of the team at Moran Eye Associates, from right to left:

A Colorful Gift!

Sharing her talent.

This week, a patient brought Dr. Moran a framed piece of art that she created.  The gift was both thoughtful and appropriate.  She was able to complete this intricate design with so much detail thanks to her excellent vision!

Although the artist was camera shy, she was happy to have us share her colorful gift with others.  We’ll refer to her as “The artist known as F.Z.”

Many thanks to her for making our office & Dr. M’s Day brighter!

Patient Education – 1st Grade Edition!

Dr. Tang Teaches About Eye CareEyes in classroom

On Tuesday, June 5th, Dr. Bianca Tang brought eye education to 1st grade classrooms at Harry S. Truman Elementary School in the Salisbury School District, and Paxinosa Elementary School in the Easton Area School District.  Her visits were part of Moran Eye Associates commitment to community outreach.

 

Dr. Tang contacted local school nurses and offered to teach the children about eyecare, to help the children feel more comfortable about visiting the eye doctor.  She explained the importance of taking care of your eyes and wearing eye protection. She talked to them about what to expect at an eye exam, and showed them the tools that the eye doctor uses to check their vision.  They talked about how important it is to visit the eye doctor even if you don’t need glasses.

Not surprisingly, all of the 1st graders knew what pink eye was!

The children were excited to learn about how the eyes work. Dr. Tang explained that your eyes can play tricks on you, and played some games with optical illusions.  The students did a great job identifying the eyes of different animals…

fish, birds, horses, goats and reptiles…and seeing the differences between each one.

Then it was time to get out the glue sticks!  Each student made a craft which helped them to identify the parts of the eye.  They quickly learned that the color part of the eye is IRIS, and the black center part is the PUPIL.  They finished off their project with beautiful eyelashes!

At the end of the 30-minute presentation, the children enthusiastically answered questions about what they learned. We aren’t sure who had more fun, the children or our staff!

Next stop on the education tour is Lincoln Elementary in Emmaus, and Jaindl Elementary in the Parkland School District, next week.

If your child’s school would be interested in an eye care program for any grade, please don’t hesitate to contact our office at 610-628-2022.
