Eyeglasses and Eye Exams
Each of the five senses is crucial for navigating the world. Unfortunately, vision does not always function the way it is meant to. As a result, it can significantly impact your wellbeing. Even if you take good care of your eyes, your vision may change. You may need a new prescription for eyeglasses without realizing it.
ABC Vision provides eyeglasses and other optometry care for residents of Sherwood, Portland, and Hillsboro, OR. If you live in the area, you may benefit from an eye exam and new pair of eyeglasses.
Eye Exams Provide Accurate Prescriptions
During your optometry appointment, your eye doctor will perform several tests. One test is for visual acuity, which determines the distances at which you see best. With this information in mind, the optometrist will perform a refraction test to determine if you may be nearsighted, farsighted, or astigmatic. Before you receive a prescription for glasses, the doctor will assess your peripheral vision as well as your depth perception and ability to focus on objects.
If you wear glasses, you should get a new exam once per year, even if you don't think anything has changed. The eye exam also checks for health concerns that don't always come with noticeable symptoms.
Select the Best Glasses for Your Vision
Once you have been given the right prescription for your eyes, you will choose glasses that you like. Your eye doctor will have plenty of eyeglasses available to test against your coloring and face shape. You will get to try on a variety of glasses.
Then, you will choose different lenses or methods of coating the lenses. For example, you might decide that an anti-reflective coating will eliminate glare on your lenses. You may also find that bifocal lenses are the best option based on your vision. Regardless of the glasses you need, an optometrist will help you make the final decision based on your lifestyle.
