Your appointment will begin with a thorough eye exam to not only determine your prescription but also identify any issues that need to be addressed. A yearly eye exam is imperative to your overall health. You also need to be tested for any vision changes that can occur. The correct prescription can truly contribute to the quality of life and your children’s ability to do their best at school. Annual exams are vital to those who have such conditions as diabetes as well. A good rule of thumb for children is to have their vision tested before the age of one, then again at three years old and before they begin school.
When you walk through our doors, you will have the health of your eyes examined. Dr. Henninger will see how they perform individually and together and test for near- and far-sightedness. A thorough health exam will be completed using advanced equipment. The utilization of dilating eye drops to obtain a more comprehensive view of the internal workings of the eye is done on a case-by-case basis.
Contact lenses continue to be a popular option for eyesight correction. Lenses allow for the freedom of clear vision without the restraints of glasses. Soft contact lenses are the material that can best fit individuals who may seek to wear them overnight. Different materials offer variations of oxygen permeability, which can impact the comfort level. Soft contacts are available in daily disposable varieties and toric selections for those with astigmatism. Hard or rigid contact lenses are more resilient and can be the best choice for those working in certain conditions. Rigid lenses can last for two to six years but may take time to adjust to the feeling.
