Do I need comprehensive eye exams if I don’t wear glasses or contacts?
Yes. A comprehensive eye exam is designed to uncover any eye disorders, such as focusing problems, dry eyes, glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, retinal problems, diabetic retinopathy or even medical conditions unrelated to the eyes. Due to the way the optic nerves run the length of the brain, there are many aspects of your health that are connected to the eyes. Annual eye exams will help detect problems at their most treatable stages.
Do diabetics need special eye care?
Yes. People with diabetes should have their eyes dilated yearly to rule out the changes in the retina that can lead to blindness.
Can I be fit with bifocal contacts?
Most people who have already worn contacts will find that adapting to bifocal contacts is not hard. Those people who haven’t worn contacts for a while may want to consider trying these since they are made with the newest materials and designed for comfort.
What is the newest technology with contact lenses?
The most comfortable and clearest contacts are the daily wear disposables. With fresh, clear lenses every day, the eye can be its healthiest and most comfortable while wearing contacts.
Are all eyeglasses the same?
