Getting regular eye checkups is one of the most effective ways to ensure your vision remains healthy for years to come. There are steps you can do at home to stay healthy, such as exercising regularly and eating healthy foods, but nothing replaces a thorough examination by an eye care specialist. If you’ve noticed blurry vision or have had trouble reading, you may need prescription contact lenses. Ovid patients can talk to our team at Trumansburg Optical if they’d like to discuss eyewear.
Proper eye care is essential to maintaining healthy eyes. Many of us have experienced minor issues, such as eyestrain, and have dealt with the discomfort as a consequence. However, adults are at risk of certain eye diseases that can permanently change their vision. As such, you should plan on visiting an eye doctor regularly to ensure everything is normal, even if you don’t have any noticeable symptoms.
Many diseases of the eye, such as glaucoma, do not have any symptoms until the disease has progressed considerably. Only a trained eye doctor can tell if your eyes are truly healthy. We use state-of-the-art equipment to take a deep look at the structure within your eyes. We can look for signs of diseases and, if we notice something wrong, deliver the right treatment to protect your vision. Our team is dedicated to helping you in any way that we can, so you can depend on us for outstanding eye care.
During your eye exam, our optometrist may determine that you need vision correction. It’s natural for your vision to change as you age, and there are plenty of solutions available, so don’t worry. Contacts are a great alternative to glasses. While some people like the style that glasses have to offer, others would rather avoid eyewear and stick to contact lenses. They are simple to put in and clean. You won’t have to worry about them falling off, which is a plus if you participate in sports.
Some of the other benefits include:
Ultimately, both glasses and contacts have their perks. Contact lenses are also relatively inexpensive for the convenience that they provide. We will prescribe the right contacts for your needs, so be sure to discuss your options with our team further.
