Clear vision is essential for daily activities, such as working on a computer or driving a car. Many people rely on prescription lenses like eyeglasses or contact lenses to enhance their vision, which can be highly beneficial for those with conditions that affect their eyesight. At The Family Eye Site in Pembroke Pines, FL, we will perform an eye exam and which treatment would be best for your vision. In the meantime, you can learn more about prescription lenses below:
Eye Exam and Consultation
Before prescribing any corrective lenses, it is crucial to receive an eye exam and consultation from our eye doctor. During the consultation, we will discuss your symptoms, the medications you are currently taking, and your overall health.
One of the primary components of an eye exam is vision testing. Regular vision testing ensures that you have clear eyesight. Based on the results, our optometrist may prescribe eyeglasses or contact lenses and even recommend specific eye exercises to improve your vision.
Enhancing Vision with Prescription Lenses
Prescription lenses are designed to correct refractive errors and common vision problems such as astigmatism, farsightedness, and nearsightedness. These lenses compensate for the irregular eye shape and allow light to focus accurately on the retina. With the correct prescription, you will have optimal visual acuity and objects will appear sharper.
Eyeglasses are a common choice for vision correction. They come in various designs, materials, and lens types to accommodate different preferences and needs. Eyeglasses can cater to a wide range of vision requirements, from single-vision lenses for near or distance vision to progressive lenses for both.
Contact lenses are an alternative option for those who prefer not to wear glasses or need vision correction during physical activities. These lenses sit directly on the surface of the eye, providing a wider field of view and a more natural appearance. These can correct the same refractive errors as eyeglasses and are available in different types, such as daily disposable, extended wear, and multifocal lenses.
