Specs4Us – Erin’s World now available at TMS Eyecare

Specs4Us was created and founded by optician, Maria Dellapina, whose daughter was diagnosed with Down syndrome. “Erin’s World” is a frame line named after Dellapina’s daughter, who continuously struggled to find glasses that would fit her properly.


“Erin’s World is a frame line designed to accommodate and fit the features of children and adults with Down syndrome, as well as other individuals with unique facial features. This innovative eyeglass design includes a bridge which is adjusted to properly fit a low nasal bridge and temples which are modified to keep the glasses from constantly slipping down. The Specs4Us mission is to improve the sight and quality of life for children and adults with Down syndrome and other unique facial features by providing custom frames that fit their unique needs. Erin’s World frames are now available in a variety of sizes and styles.”  (specs4us for more)

I See Spots.

“Floaters” are easily one of the most common conditions that we answer questions about. These little spots that annoy and distract are something that many of us live with. I recently came across this TedTalk video that does a great job describing just what these little guys are all about. Take 4 minutes 5 seconds and check it out.

Now most of the time floaters are harmless. They can however, be a sign of impending problems. So if you see bright flickers or flashes followed by new floaters, especially that seem to really block or blur your vision, or if you see a influx of lots of new floaters over a short period of time then you need to get your eyes checked out ASAP.

When are Eye Floaters and Flashes a Medical Emergency?

A thorough dilated eye exam will quickly determine if your floaters are the normal and annoying variety or a problem that needs intervention by a retinal specialist.
