Why should you get an eye exam every year from our Garden City eye care? We’ll give you two very good reasons. First, to have your vision tested and second, to be screened for common eye diseases. Your eyesight is always changing and the prescription that used to suit you just fine may need some updating. Or if you’ve never worn eyeglasses or contacts before, this may be the year where you can finally benefit from them. As for your screening, bear in mind that most eye diseases don’t have any symptoms in their early stages to alert you to their presence. And early detection is considered vital with any disease when it comes to the odds of the best outcome.

Nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia, and astigmatism are all vision issues that can easily be corrected with a pair of glasses or contact lenses. If you notice that you’re having difficulties seeing when driving, reading, working at your computer, reading the menu at the coffee shop; or you have blurry vision or headaches from eye strain, these are all indications that you probably need a new or updated prescription from our Garden City eye care.

Two eye diseases that can affect anyone at any age are cataracts and glaucoma. Tonometry is the baseline test for glaucoma, a disease that is marked by excessive internal eye pressure. Our optometrist will also check your peripheral (side-to-side) vision and if other tests are needed based on the results of those, they’ll also be performed. A slit-lamp exam, which uses a special light to see inside your eyes, is the initial way to check for cataracts. Other common eye diseases our Garden City eye care screens for are specific to age, as in macular degeneration (affecting those who are 40 or older) or to other circumstances, like diabetic retinopathy, a concern for anyone with type one or type two diabetes.

And because we make every effort to be comprehensive, your eye muscles, eyelids, and other key parts of your eyes will be examined. The blood vessels in your eyes can even indicate potential problems not related to your optical health, such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes. When it comes to your vision an eye health, you can always depend on our Garden City eye care.

Once you buy a new pair of designer eyeglasses from Vision World of Garden City, you’ll want to keep them looking new for as long as possible! To make the most out of your lenses, you’ll need to take extra special care in handling, storing, and cleaning them. Though a quality pair of eyeglasses may cost more money up front, you need to consider it as an investment in your eye health. There are also many benefits to having a quality pair of eyeglasses that fit your face and specialty lenses that meet all your vision needs. For affordable, but well-made eyewear, visit your Garden City Optical Store, Vision World.

Taking care of your eyeglasses goes beyond making sure they are properly stored every night in a padded eyeglass case or that you handle them with care and caution. More importantly, you should clean your lenses on a nightly basis. Improper lens care however can damage lenses in the form of scratches, haziness, and peeling off coatings. Using damaged lenses can affect your vision and may cause eyestrain. To avoid this, our Garden City opticians suggest that you use a cleaner developed specifically for the lenses as well as use a clean lens cloth. Do not clean using clothing or paper products as these rough materials can easily scratch lenses. Additionally, do not use glass cleaners, hand soaps, or detergents to clean your glasses. Stick to cleaners that are designated for lens care.

If you find that your glasses have suffered over the years from scratches, visit Vision World of Garden City and our frame specialists will see what they can do about repairing your frames. However, since some damage is irreversible, you may just want to buy a new pair of eyeglasses.
