Getting your eyes checked when you are ready to buy new glasses or contacts is important to ensure the correct lens strength. Your eyes change over time and children may not ever have had their eyes checked. A local eye doctor 11379 can provide these services and help you to get the eyewear you need.
The Eye Exam
When you go to the eye doctor for new eyewear, you will be asked whether you are interested in eyeglasses or contacts. The tests for each are different and they may vary depending on your age.
The standard eye test measures how well you can read the letters on a wall chart. This tells the doctor whether your eyes are 20/20 or not. By covering one eye at a time, the doctor will also be able to tell if one eye is weaker than the other.
Other eye exams may also be required if the doctor suspects medical problems with one or both eyes. In some cases, the local eye doctor 11379 may dilate your eyes by placing some drops into them. This is not done very often but it will enable the doctor to get a better look into your eyes. You will need sunglasses when you leave the store because the light will be much brighter for a couple of hours. Tests may also be given for glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and dry eye.
Contact Lens Exams
If you are getting contact lenses, there will be different eye tests. These tests make sure that your eyes are in good health and that you have enough moisture to wear them. Once the lenses have been made, you will need to have a special appointment for a contact lens fitting.
Get Trendy Frames
After you have completed your eye tests, you can select out the pair of eyeglass frames you want. At the Optical Warehouse Outlet, we carry many types of frames, including ones made of plastic, wood, acetate, metal, and titanium. Your glasses can also come with various levels of tint, including transition lenses that change with the light.
