Optometric

  • Optometry is a healthcare profession which involves examining the eyes and applicable visual systems for defects or abnormalities as well as the medical diagnosis and management of eye disease.
  • Op optometrists typically work closely together with other eye care professionals such as ophthalmologists and opticians to deliver quality and efficient eye care to the general public.

 

  • Low Vision
    Low vision is not a normal symptom of aging. If you have noticed changes in your vision, see your eye doctor right away. Regular medical eye exams by an ophthalmologist are important to diagnose eye diseases early. It is important to treat those conditions that can be helped.Low vision is a permanent loss of vision that won’t improve with eyeglasses, medicine or surgery. If you have low vision, there is no treatment that will give you back your vision. Instead, you will need to learn new ways to use your remaining vision to complete everyday tasks and maintain your quality of life. Start the process of vision rehabilitation.

 

  • Contact Lenses
  • For success with contact lenses, see a doctor who provides full-service care. Before getting a prescription for contact lenses, you will undergo a thorough eye examination and evaluation of your suitability for contact lens wear.
  • If contact lenses are right for you, your optometrist will provide you with the lenses, lens care kits, individual instructions for wear and care, and unlimited follow-up visits over a specified time. Hygiene is the most critical aspect of successful long-term contact lens wear.
  • The following recommendations for contact lens wearers:
  1. Always wash and thoroughly dry your hands before handling contact lenses.
  2. Carefully and regularly clean contact lenses as directed by your optometrist. Rub the contact lenses with your fingers and rinse them thoroughly before soaking the lenses overnight in multipurpose solution that completely covers each lens.
  3. Store lenses in the proper lens storage case, and replace the case at least every three months. Clean the case after each use, and keep it open and dry between cleanings.
  4. Use only products recommended by your optometrist to clean and disinfect your lenses. Saline solution and rewetting drops do not disinfect lenses.
  5. Use only fresh solution to clean and store contact lenses. Never reuse old solution. Change the contact lens solution according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, even if you don’t use the lenses daily.
  6. Always follow the recommended contact lens replacement schedule your optometrist prescribes.
  7. Remove contact lenses before swimming or entering a hot tub.
  8. See your optometrist for your regularly scheduled contact lens and eye examination.
  • Vision Therapy
  • Unlike other forms of exercise, the goal of optometric vision therapy is not to strengthen eye muscles. Your eye muscles are already incredibly strong. Instead, vision therapy aims to retrain the learned aspects of vision through the recently-understood concept of neuroplasticity.
  • Optometric vision therapy should not be confused with any self-directed program of eye exercises which is or has been marketed to the public. In-office vision therapy under the supervision of an optometrist is supported by ongoing evidence-based scientific research.

 

  • Who is vision therapy for?
  • Vision therapy is safe, drug-free, and effective for both children and adults!
  • Because visual skills such as tracking lines of text, coordinating the eyes, and focusing on close objects must be learned during development, these skills can also be improved later in life at any age.
  • It is estimated that 1 in 10 children have a vision problem severe enough to affect their learning in school, but school vision screenings can miss up to half of these problems. A comprehensive vision exam with a developmental optometrist checks all aspects of eye health, vision, and visual skills, and can ensure you or your child is not struggling unnecessarily with an undiagnosed vision problem.
