For optimal results and better preventive measures, it is recommended to get an exam done at least once a year. This way if any signs start to show of visual concerns or diseases we can detect and treat them on time.
We would recommend around age 6. For school-age children, regular vision checks are important. Eye exams help uncover vision problems, detect eye diseases early and help preserve vision long-term. A child’s vision can change often, and unexpectedly, from ages 6 to 18. Unfortunately, most children don’t understand nor do they know how to communicate things that may be wrong with their vision.
Age is not necessarily a key factor for the use of contact lenses, but responsibility and hygiene is. Contact lenses require someone to be responsible and sanitary with their lenses to prevent possible lodges, infections or diseases.
Yes. Each individual person has a specific vision requirement, corneal shape, etc. has a contact lens that can cater to it. We want to make sure your contact lens is not only the right fit for you but can ensure that you see 20/20 regardless of what vision issue, medical determent or disease your eyes may have.
Yes. You can also ask about this during your basic eye exam. During your exam, simply let us know that you are interested in Lasik and we will check to make sure that you are in fact an eligible candidate for the surgery. We can also recommend excellent Lasik surgeons.
No we do not. Our team can evaluate and refer you to the Lasik surgeons facility where you can contact them and set up the appointment. They will then complete the process for you.
The size of cataracts have been known to increase over time. The best decision to make in a situation like this is to remove it early or once the actual cataract starts to become a hindrance. Once removed, it is important at this point to keep visiting our optometrists to make sure that they don’t return or to ensure your everyday activity isn’t hindered.
