LASIK eye surgery was first introduced more than 20 years ago. Since that time, millions of Americans have undergone LASIK surgery to improve their vision and live free of glasses and contacts. It is most widely used to correct vision such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. During the procedure the eye is anesthetized with eye drops.
Neurological eye screenings conducted at our Optical Masters’ office provide you and your medical provider with important information about the state of your vision. Evaluating how your eyes and pupils work together and separately can tell your medical provider if the nerves and muscles controlling your eyes are functioning properly or suffering from a dangerous condition or disease.
he American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends an annual eye exam for any adult who wears eyeglasses or contacts. If you don’t normally need vision correction, you still need an eye exam every year. Doctors often recommend more frequent examinations for adults with diabetes, high blood pressure and other disorders, because many diseases can have an impact on vision and eye health.
Winter eye health can be challenged when temperatures turn south, but by incorporating these tips and tricks, you can keep your eyes healthy and happy.
