We prescribe lenses and therapy to help patients achieve their potential. We can see conditions such as nearsightedness or astigmatism before it happens. Very often we can slow down the progression of these symtoms or even stop it from happening. We help patients achieve their goals everyday using lenses and therapy. Reading and learning problems extend from childhood into adulthood and are quite common. With proper lenses and/or therapy, these problems can be greatly improved!
We recommend that you receive a vision exam every year.
During your vision exam we check for the following:
- Eye health
- Eye alignment
- Eye movements
- Eye teaming
- Refractive status
- Intraocular pressure measurement
- Visual Field
Tired Eyes from Computer and Reading
Intensive school and job related tasks can create great visual stress. Eye strain is a common problem in today's visually demanding world. Several key signs of eye strain include: sore or tired eyes, itching and burning sensations in the eyes, sensitivity to light, dry or watery eyes, focusing difficulties, headaches, back and neck aches.
A lot of the times, a simple pair of reading or computer glasses can help release most of the stress. It is also important that you have proper lighting, comfortable seating, correct viewing distances, and take enough breaks between near visual tasks. Make sure you come in for a visual exam if you are experiencing eye strain, neck or back aches from intensive near work.
