Importance of Good Eyesight
Your vision is essential in every aspect of your life, such as when seeing family, driving, reading material to set up your new TV, and participating in sports. In certain cases, if you don’t see clearly, especially when focusing on objects that are close up, you can experience headaches and nausea.
Eye Exam and Vision Screening
Before we can size you for your glasses, you will need a comprehensive vision screening and eye exam. The vision portion of the appointment consists of our eye doctor asking you to read lines of letters shown in various sizes. We will ask you which one appears most clear, and based on this information, we can determine the magnification strength of your eyeglasses.
During this part of the visit, we'll also perform an astigmatism test, which will determine if you have blurry vision as a result of abnormal eye curvature. To test for the condition, we will ask you to look at a serious of pictures and determine which one appears clearer.
We'll also perform an eye exam that will consist of a few different evaluations. The results will not directly affect whether or not you need glasses. If you're interested in contacts too, the results could impact the type that is necessary for your condition. In addition, if you have a condition that's hindering your vision, we may be able to correct the underlying problem.
Once we learn more your vision and any level of astigmatism you have, our optometrist can then determine the right prescription for you. At this point, you'll have an opportunity to pick out your frames and you'll receive a fitting to ensure your glasses fit properly.
