Has it been a while since you have had a comprehensive eye exam? Are you experiencing some visual problems but have not yet visited an eye doctor for diagnosis and treatment? Are you concerned because you have a relative who was recently diagnosed with glaucoma? If the answer to any of these questions is “yes,” you will want to make an appointment to come to Vision World to see our Garden City eye specialist.
At Vision World, our Garden City eye specialist will be able to perform a comprehensive eye exam that includes glaucoma testing. We have been serving the needs of our Garden City community for many years. On staff we have expert optometrists and opticians to make sure that you have the very best of eye care. We welcome all members of the family into our practice, and provide each patient with the very best of care and treatment. Our comprehensive eye exam is very thorough, and will allow our optometrist to check for the occurrence of many eye diseases including: glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy cataracts and dry eye.
Our Garden City eye specialist will be sure to test for glaucoma as part of every eye exam. To begin with, our optometrist will put special medicated drops in your eye to dilate your pupils. The glaucoma exam will focus on the optic nerve, which will take on a certain look when the eye has glaucoma. The optic nerve will change how it looks over the progression of the disease. Our optometrist will also use a special instrument that is able to check the pressure of your eye. A visual field test will also be necessary to determine if there is any peripheral loss of vision. All of these tests are completely painless, and do not take much time. However, it may take a while for your eyes to readjust to light after receiving the medicated eye drops, so it is best if you have someone available who will be able to drive you home, if necessary. If you would like to be seen by one of our expert and highly-trained optometrists, contact our office today for an eye care appointment at Vision World.

When you receive a prescription for glasses at Vision World, the optician then works to fit the lens prescription to the glasses. Some prescriptions work better with certain frames. Sometimes the prescription dictates certain aspects of the frame, such as frame depth or weight. It is up to the optician to (1) measure the client’s eye, (2) order or create the lens to the specifics of the selected eyeglasses, and (3) fit the finished eye wear to the client’s nose and ears. The procedure is more complex for contact lens exams in Garden City at Vision World.

When having contact lens exams in Garden City at Vision World there are several steps the optometrist must take to ensure correct fit and prescription. First it must be determined what kind of contacts you want to wear. There are soft contact lenses that come in daily wear, extended wear lenses, and disposable lenses. They can vary in terms of cost, convenience and prescription availability. Options will be discussed with you. Then there are hard lenses which are a bit more difficult to get used to, and do not always provide the comfort of the soft lenses. However, hard lenses can sometimes provide sharper vision, especially with nearsightedness or astigmatism. Other options, such as bifocal and color may also be discussed.

Then, during contact lens exams in Garden City at Vision World, additional eye information will be gathered by our optometrist. He will need to measure the cornea with a keratometer; it will determine the curvature of your eye’s clear front surface. This will help measure the appropriate curve and size of your contacts. Additional corneal topography may be performed. Other measurements may also be performed to help determine what type of contacts will provide the best vision. The eye pupil and iris may also be measured. Other measurements may include a tear film evaluation, and evaluation of the cornea. The procedure to be fit for contact lenses is complex, but is essential for the eye health of the contact lens wearer. Visit Vision World for superb contact lens fittings.
