Prescription Glasses

Making sure you can see well is an important part of day to day life, especially if you rely heavily on your eyes for work. If you need vision correction, here’s what you need to know about eye exams and prescription glasses.

Who Needs Prescription Glasses?

While there are a lot of things that prescription glasses can do, only some conditions can be treated with corrective lenses. As far as the conditions that eyeglasses can treat, here’s a quick rundown:

  • Nearsightedness
  • Farsightedness
  • Astigmatism
  • Presbyopia
  • Computer Eye Strain/Eye fatigue

In some cases, you might need a specific type of glasses to correct your vision problem. For example, presbyopia patients often must wear progressive lenses (or old school bifocals) to correct their condition. Make sure you talk with your eye doctor about your vision condition is and what kind of treatment options are available to you.

Getting an Eye Exam

The first step to figuring out how to correct your vision is to have an eye doctor at Wilken Family Eye Care perform an eye exam to figure out what your prescription is. Once you know whether you are dealing with an eye condition and what your treatment options are, you can make a plan to correct your vision moving forward. The simplest way to do this is to simply get a new pair of glasses with the right prescription. Although, you may also want to consider contact lenses or corrective surgery in some cases.

Finding the Right Eye Doctor

If you want to take the best care of your eyes, you need to make sure you’ve got a good eye doctor on your side. The first thing you should do is look at what other people have to say about eye doctors in your area to see which ones get the best reviews. From there, you can call and ask about the different lenses and treatment options they offer. You can even ask your optometrist about what kind of treatment they recommend for various conditions. It’s important to make sure your eye doctor can help with your condition and prescribe the types of lenses you need.

The last thing you want is to spend long days at work or in school when it’s difficult to see. The good news is, that doesn’t have to be the case.
