Eye Care Services Today's Vision Conroe
Your vision affords you the opportunity to be able to perform activities that are essential to the normal activities of daily life. Most people fail to realize that their eyes play a significant role in their overall health. Here at Today’s Vision, Conroe, our doctor, and our entire eye care services team are dedicated to educating people about the importance of taking care of their eyes with regular comprehensive eye exams. Our practice offers a number of optometry services to help people maintain their vision. Here are some of them.
Comprehensive Eye Exams
Comprehensive eye exams are essential to the overall health of the eyes. There are a lot of people who believe that a screening of their vision is all they really need to do. There is a world of difference between an eye screening and a full comprehensive exam. Our Conroe optometry team provides our patients with complete exams which feature a battery of tests. These tests are conducted to evaluate your vision and the overall health of your eyes. Vision screenings are only designed to access vision.
Treatment and Prevention of Computer Vision Syndrome
Modern day technology is amazing and has made it possible for people to have the world at their fingertips, but it has come with a cost that has a profound effect on vision. Here in our office, our optometry team makes educating people about the dangers of excessive exposure of blue light and its effect on the eyes a priority. We can provide our patients with both prescription and non-prescription eyeglasses to help them protect their eyes from the dangerous blue light emitted from computers, handheld devices, and television sets. We also diagnose and treat computer vision syndrome. Dr. Breaux makes the diagnosis based on a series of tests which evaluate refraction, visual acuity, and focus and eye coordination. From there, treatment plans are designed to focus on the individual needs of each patient.
Contact Lens Exams
Contact lens exams and comprehensive eye exams are not the same. During a contact fitting exam, our doctor conducts an exam to check the health and the condition of your eyes. From there he also conducts a complete history and physical which includes questions about your personal and your family medical histories. This is important because there are a number of medical conditions that lessen the possibility that a person would be able to wear contact lenses successfully. If our doctor deems you are a good candidate for contact wear, he will begin the process of finding the right lenses for your eyes. This process could take an extended time, as there are a lot of variables to consider like the shape and color of the lenses, the type of prescription needed, the overall condition of the eyes and the comfort of the patient. Our doctor and our entire team will spend as much time we deem necessary to ensure our patients leave our practice with appropriately fitting contacts.
Lasik Surgery Referrals
Sometimes people make the decision to pursue other vision correction options besides eyeglasses and contact lenses. Here at Today’s Vision, our doctor conducts eye exams to evaluate the eyes of patients who express an interest in Lasik surgery. Once the exam is complete and our patients are deemed to be good candidates for the procedure, Dr. Breaux will refer patients to have it done. Our team follows up on every referral made and is available to assist them with post-operative eye care services.
Sports Vision Eye Care Services
Every athlete wants to be at the top of their sport of choice and understanding how vision influences sports abilities is crucial. Our Conroe office features sports vision testing to help athletes assess their abilities connected to depth perception, hand-eye coordination, and eye tracking. Contrast sensitivity and ocular alignment testing is also conducted. Athletes can choose to engage in a number of corrective services like visual acuity correction, and solutions to improve contrast sensitivity are available. Our doctor makes a determination about the specific needs of each patient based on his evaluation.
Our doctor has gone through extensive training to be able to offer our patient's vision therapy. Vision therapy is used to build a stronger connection between the brain and the neurological pathways of the eyes. This, in turn, clears many of the obstacles that can prevent a person from learning. Vision therapy uses vision exercises in a deliberate and progressive pattern to help patients efficiently change how they interpret, and process images correctly.
UV rays are a danger to the eyes no matter the season. Our practice recommends people protect their eyes from the sun with UV protection sunglasses to help minimize their chances of developing cataracts and retinal damage. We offer a number of UV ray protection sunglasses to choose from. Additionally, many of our eyeglass frames can accommodate sunglass lenses.
