Vision for Fashion

“The practice offers eye examinations, which include visual fields screening, retinal photos, dilation, refraction, personalized lens recommendation, frame styling and digital lens measurement. Medical eye examinations are also available and differ from standard eye exams by addressing a specific medical concern or health issue—examples being allergies, astigmatism, cataracts, conjunctivitis, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and strabismus.

While her primary focus is ensuring her patients’ eye health and prescribing accurate prescriptions for lenses, Jamison enjoys tapping into her days as an optician by helping patients find the best frames for their lifestyles and faces. “I’m only as good as your eyewear, at the end of the day,” she says. “I get to be at the beginning of your journey and at the end, knowing you’re getting something for your life-style and fashion wants.”

Fitting eyewear requires more than just picking out what looks good. A client’s head size, distance between the eyes and nose and face shapes fac-tor into the decision. Comfort is also important: ill-fitting glasses tend to spend most of the time tossed aside, rather than perched on a nose. 
Once those elements are addressed, the fun can really begin. “Right now, I’m obsessed with matte [finish],” Jamison says.”

Dr. Pei Ling Jamison is on the founding board of Power of 100 Southwest, Women Who Care. Power of 100 Southwest was started in late 2014 with eight board members that wanted to bring woman together to donate to worthy locale causes. Power of 100 is simple, meaningful, and powerful. We meet four times a year for an hour meeting. We vote with our hearts to choose from three random qualified charities nominated by women in the group. The money donated by each member is powerful because it is staying within our communities and helping organizations in need. Power of 100 has already donated a total of $21,325.

At our last meeting in July, the winning organization was Oasis for Youth. Oasis for Youth is located in Bloomington, MN and provides service youth in Bloomington, Richfield and Edina. It is a place that helps open doors for housing, employment, education and wellness for youth at risk of homelessness. Oasis for Youth provides opportunities to thrive through individualized case managements, onsite supportive services and connections to housing and community resources. The members of Power of 100 Southwest donated a total of $13,050 to Oasis for Youth.

Dr. Jamison wanted to be a part of an organization that benefits locate needs. She has learned about many smaller non-profit organizations that do not receive a lot of publicity but have just as worthy causes.

Why your kids need an annual eye exam.

Why your kids need an annual eye exam.

Children get a yearly well check and they should be getting a yearly eye exam also. Vision accounts for 80% of learning and one out of four children has a treatable vision or ocular health problem.

Most children will not complain of blurred vision because they do not know what normal vision is supposed to be. There is much more to vision than just the pediatric doctor’s distance eye chart to be tested.

At Jamison Optical, we test distance and near vision, eye teaming, eye movements, peripheral awareness, depth perception, color test, refraction and eye health. Dr. Pei Ling Jamison is aware of the importance of not just distance vision but all of the other testing that is important for the development of reading and school work done at the desk and computer level.

A new school year can be stressful for a child by getting an eye exam; children can focus on learning their school work than worrying about seeing their school work. We want to help identify children who have a vision concern earlier in their development and school year to make learning easier and more enjoyable.

Book your eye exam at Jamison Optical in Eden Prairie. Our ‘All Inclusive’ Eye Exam focuses you, your health and your vision. Dr. Jamison will give you personalized service and lens recommendations. We make finding glasses easy with our frame styling and have a handpicked collection of exclusive and top brand glasses to choose from. Make an appointment and shop at www.JamisonOptical.com.

Orange Peppermint Sipper

Orange Peppermint Sipper

Orange Peppermint Sipper

One of my favorite memories as a child was having an Orange Peppermint Sipper at a birthday party. I loved the orange and peppermint flavor combination. It was really fun to squeeze the orange to get more juice.

Here is how to do it:

  1. Roll the orange on the counter
  2. Cut a X on the bottom of the orange
  3. Bit off the ends of the peppermint stick
  4. Put the peppermint stick in the orange where the X was cut
  5. Sip the orange juice through the peppermint stick
  6. Squeeze the orange for more juice
  7. Enjoy!

Sincerely,

Dr. Pei Ling Jamison
