TOP 7 QUESTIONS WE HEAR FROM PATIENTS
How does the eye work?
The human eye is a marvel of built-in engineering: combining reflected light, multiple lighting adjustments and information processing—all in the space of your eyeball. When working properly, the human eye converts light into impulses that are conveyed to the brain and interpreted as images.
How often should I get an Eye Exam?
Seeing clearly is just one part of your overall eye health. It’s important to have regular eye exams whether or not you wear glasses or contacts, even if your vision is sharp. Please check yearly to see clearly.
I'm over 40, why can't I see well?
You've probably noticed your eyes have changed. Most notably, presbyopia - the normal, age-related loss of near focusing ability. Readers aren't going to cut it! You may be requiring new vision correction solutions.
I'm over 65, why is my vision fuzzy?
Just as our physical strength can decrease with age, our eyes may exhibit a decline in performance. Some age-related eye changes are perfectly normal, but others may signal cataracts or other eye diseases. It's important to recognize signs and symptoms. Don't forget your regular OD or MD check-ups!
Can you help me look good in glasses?
Yes, we believe everyone looks great in the right pair of glasses. Why not you!? Spectacles are actually a very popular accessory and a great way to help you look and see your best.
Why do I need to protect my eyes?
If you work in a hazardous environment like a construction zone or workshop, or participate in sports—sturdy and impact-resistant eyewear is a must. Plus everyday environments in the modern world are detrimental to our eyes health, UV and HEV Blue light being the biggest offenders. Let us help you protect your baby blues today!
Do you accept glasses donations?
It's important to give back to the community in which we live, which is why we are involved in a special outreach and charity initiative through the Lion's Club. Feel free to stop in and drop off your old glasses, we can only accept glasses in good repair, but we'd be glad to see them go to good use again!
