There’s no doubt about it, dryness and winter go together almost as well as a hat and gloves. Our skin is a little more dry, our hair is a little duller, and our eyes just feel more irritable. Eyes tend to get the brunt of the harsh weather; we bundle up our hands, feet, heads, and bodies with winter gear, but we don’t usually think about eye protection in the winter.
Dr. Hinkemeyer and fellow members of the Minnesota Optometric Association were honored to speak with Congressman Tom Emmer recently about issues affecting optometry in Minnesota. We are so proud to have doctors that care deeply about these issues and improving the quality of eye care for all patients in our state.
