When it comes to your eyesight, you want both clear vision and comfort. If you currently wear contact lenses that are bothersome or if you are new to contact lenses, our team is here to discuss what type would work best for you. Contact lenses can be a great way to help teens see their best, but allow them to have a face free of glasses to more comfortably play sports and other activities. We are proud to serve our communities as a full-service optometric practice. At Trumansburg Optical, we are family-owned and offer comprehensive eye exams, glasses, contacts and emergency eye care when you most need it.
Before we even begin to discuss contact lenses, glasses, or both, we will thoroughly examine the health of your eyes. Your eyes can be a window into your health as they can indicate possible health issues within your body. Our eye doctor will check on how your eyes work together and individually. The assessment will look at your near and far vision for a prescription. Our optometrist will also look into your eyes for signs of diabetes, glaucoma and cataracts. Dilating your eyes may be necessary to get an even closer look. If dilation drops are needed, another driver will help you get home safely. Dilation drops affect the up-close functionality of your eyes and can last for hours.
Eye exams should be done annually if you wear contacts or glasses, and as an older adult. School-age kids should also see our team yearly in order to ensure they can see correctly at school. Once we have your prescription, we will discuss your new eyeglasses and contacts. A new pair of eyeglasses is available on-site. We have many styles of frames and designers, such as Kate Spade, Jones New York, Fossil, Hugo Boss, and Tommy Hilfiger. Your lenses will be worked on with state-of-the-art technology to create the edges. This cuts down on your wait time.
When being fitted with contact lenses, we will discuss your options depending on your prescription. There are daily disposable lenses, bi-weekly or monthly lenses to fit your lifestyle. Our optometrist can discuss the differences to help you determine which is the best. If you have an emergency situation, we are here for you. If you have a loss in vision, dark areas within your field of vision or injury to the eye, we can see you promptly to determine what needs to be done. While dry itchy eyes do not prompt an emergency, if you are not sure, please contact us to discuss what symptoms you are facing. Swelling, redness, or burning and stabbing pain can also be an emergency.
We are available for questions through our online contact form.
