Eyeglasses help correct poor vision and other vision problems. However, with many options to choose from, it may be challenging to determine what type of eyeglasses are needed and which ones are best to treat the many forms of vision problems. Our eye doctors at Today's Vision in Conroe can help treat your eye conditions and answer any questions you may have about your eyeglasses. Below are commonly asked questions about eyeglasses, including how an optometrist can help with vision care.
Why Should I See an Optometrist if I Have No Problems Seeing?
Every year, many who have no trouble seeing visit their eye doctor for a routine eye exam. The eye has so many parts that something could be wrong without negatively impacting a person's vision. A regular check-up with an optometrist can help spot any concerns with the eyes and diagnose different conditions and diseases early.
How Often Should I See an Eye Doctor if I Do Not Need Eyeglasses?
It is recommended everyone visit their eye doctor for routine eye exams at least once a year. However, it is best to speak with your eye doctor to determine which eye exam schedule is best for you and your vision needs.
How Often Should I Get a New Pair of Eyeglasses?
A great time to get new eyeglasses is when your prescription has changed. Getting new glasses when prescriptions change helps ensure you see clearly. In addition, if you are starting to have trouble seeing when driving or when doing specific tasks, especially at work, you may need new eyeglasses.
How Do I Know Which Glasses to Get?
Finding the perfect pair of eyeglasses means trying on dozens of frames. First, the type of prescription you have may help determine the size, shape, and materials needed in your eyeglasses. Then, the excellent staff at your eye doctor's office can help give honest opinions. In the end, select a pair that can hold your prescription, feel good on, and make you feel good when you look in the mirror.
Do I Need Bifocals?
The only way to determine if you need bifocals is to have an eye exam with your optometrist. However, those over the age of 40 are more likely to need bifocals. Therefore, if you are over 40 and having difficulties with tasks requiring you to see things up close, it may be time to ask your eye doctor about bifocals.
