Recently, ESPN's sports anaylist, Adam Schefter, visited a Vision Source optometrist in New York City, Dr. Susan Resnick, for his annual eye exam. Shefter knows first hand the importance of eye exams as his wife suffers from diabetes, a disease that can be identified during an exam. This year, with Dr. Resnick's recommendations, Schefter made some changes to his eye wear decisions. Read the following interview to learn more:
During your recent eye exam with a Vision Source doctor, what was recommended to you?
"Fresh Day disposable contact lenses, Dr. Resnick sold me on the comfort and match with my lifestyle.”
Before switching to Fresh Day disposable contacts, how long had you been wearing glasses for?
“25 years. They are great until you lose them! With long days, comfort could become an issue as well. I really needed a better solution.”
Had you ever worn contacts before and if so tell me about your experience?
"Yes, once and it was a little frustrating. I liked not having to wear glasses but got frustrated with nightly cleaning. I didn't actually wear the contacts very consistently because they seemed to be more of a daily hassle than the convenience that I was after in the first place. At the end of the day, I was wearing my glasses again”
Number 1, the prescription is spot on. They are so comfortable that I forget that I’m wearing them. The price is comparable to longer wearing contacts but there is no worry as in the past of losing them down a drain, swimming etc. You wear them once and you’re done. Next day, new pair.”
Do you think you'll ever go back to glasses or another type of contacts?
"It’s nice to have a pair of glasses around but Fresh Day daily disposables are the only way to go when it comes to wearing contacts. I’m a fan. Daily disposables allow me the convenience of contacts with ability to toss them after a long day of broadcasting."
