Frequently Asked Questions
The eye has been called the window to the soul, and this really is true because it is the only place where we can directly view the blood vessels which gives us great insight into other medical diseases.
What are some warning signs that your vision could be in danger?
Blurry or double vision; crossed eyes; eye pain, headaches, eye redness, light sensitivity; flashes, floaters and a blind spot or curtain blocking a portion of your field of vision are just a few reasons for a complete eye exam.
What does 20/20 mean?
If your doctor says that you have 20/20 vision, that means your eye is able to see a letter 20 feet away, which a normal eye can also see at 20 feet.
What are floaters?
Floaters are spots in the interior jelly part of the eye that are moving around. The floaters themselves do not need therapy, but they can be a sign of a retinal tear which requires treatment.
What safety concerns should contact lens wearers consider in the summer?
Avoid water activities with contacts due to risk of contamination from beach, pool, or spa water. Microorganisms in the water can adhere to the contacts and then attach to the cornea, causing severe infections. FDA guidelines are returning to a recommendation to "rub and rinse" instead of the "No rub" option due to the recent history of increased contact infections secondary to amoeba and fungus.
What brands does the optical shop carry?
The Optical Shop carries many brands and consistently acquires new brands as well. Some of the brands we regularly carry are Ray Ban, Dior, Coach, Nike and DKNY. The optical shop is capable of ordering/making prescription sunglasses too!
How often should I have an eye exam?
Every person should have a general eye exam once per year.
What is the difference between near sighted and far sighted?
People who are nearsighted cannot see things clearly unless they are close to the eyes, meaning they see more clearly close-up than far away. Far sighted people see clearly from a distance, but have trouble seeing things close to their eyes.
