How do I know if my child needs glasses?
How do I know if my child needs glasses?
1
Taking your child to an optometrist for an eye exam is the best way to learn if your child needs glasses. Many children who need glasses aren’t aware that they do. Signs of vision problems in children include sitting too close to the television, squinting, sensitivity to light, difficulty with eye-hand coordination, and avoiding visual activities like reading and drawing. To see if your child needs glasses, schedule your child’s eye exam today.
How does vision change with age?
How does vision change with age?
1
Changes in vision that occur with age include reduced pupil size, dry eyes, loss of peripheral vision, decreased color vision, and vitreous detachment. The most common vision problem that comes with age is presbyopia, which is the normal and unavoidable age-related loss of focusing ability. Different types of lenses can provide help for presbyopia. The risk of developing cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy increases with age too. Your optometrist will discuss any age-related vision problems you’re experiencing at your next annual eye exam.
Who can wear contact lenses?
Who can wear contact lenses?
1
Nearly anyone who needs vision correction can wear contact lenses. Contact lenses can provide vision correction for people with nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or a combination of these issues. Finding the perfect lens for you is sometimes a process of trial and error. All of the lens parameters can be finalized only after you’ve worn the successful combination. Schedule an eye exam to talk with your optometrist about whether contact lenses would be a good vision correction option for you.

See Clearly, Drive Safely

Making sure your vision is at its best while driving is important for you and your family’s safety. There are simple steps you can take to ensure your eyes are ready for the road! If your drive is long, don’t forget to take breaks to rest your eyes. Keeping your windshield, windows and mirrors clean at all times is also important so you can clearly see in all directions. Your eyewear is critical for road safety. Wearing polarized sunglasses is crucial when driving during the day, not only to block UV rays, but to minimize road glare. Having astigmatism can cause extra sensitivity to glare and light while driving. Talk with our team of doctors about ways to manage and reduce distractions from light caused by astigmatism. Lastly, wear your clean, prescription eyewear anytime you drive. To make sure your prescription is up to date and your eyes are healthy for the road, schedule your annual eye exam today.
