Examination to Identify CVS

As everyone can agree, advances in computer technology improve productivity, give us greater access to entertainment and allow us to be in touch easily with family and friends. While the advantages of technological progress are evident, it’s important to acknowledge that there are also health consequences associated with increased screen time. Looking at a computer, cellphone, tablet or e-reader for too many hours a day can affect your eyesight, causing what is called Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). If you experience eye strain, irritation, headaches or difficulty seeing when using a digital device, visit us at the office Optical Outlets. We’ll perform a comprehensive examination to identify CVS and determine an effective approach to treatment.

While computers can make life easier, you’d be surprised to know that they can create many challenges for your eyes. Your eyes have to work hard as they focus at the same distance point for a prolonged period and may become fatigued. Flickering screens and glare create added strain, and switching your focus from paper to screen also require your eyes to rapidly adjust. If you have an existing vision impairment, CVS may be more pronounced. If you’re experiencing symptoms of CVS, schedule an appointment with our office. We’ll perform a comprehensive exam to rule out other conditions and create a treatment plan to alleviate the symptoms. In some cases, you may be required to wear specialized lenses for computer use only. If you wear corrective lenses already, your prescription may be modified or you may need a new prescription for computer use. Simple adjustments, such as altering the brightness or contrast on your screen, enlarging font size and changes in lighting to minimize glare can also help mitigate CVS. As skilled and experienced providers of care, we take the time to advise you as to how you can create a healthier computer-viewing environment.

At the office of Optical Outlets, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.

Reading Glasses Lady Lake

Getting the right eyeglass prescription in Lady Lake

At Optical Outlets our reading glasses Lady Lake are done specifically for patients who need to see clearly up close. It’s important that you have the right eyeglass prescription, because without it you may experience headaches and eye strain. Sometimes, prescriptions can change over the course of a year. As people get older, they also begin to need the use of reading glasses. Reading glasses help those with farsightedness, where people can see far distances but not close up.

We carry a wide selection of reading glasses Lady Lake so that our patients can choose from frames that fit their own unique style. Before we recommend a pair of glasses for you, we’ll give you a comprehensive exam to check your eyes and then create a prescription that perfectly matches. After the prescription is ordered, you can pick up your eyeglasses or contact lenses right at our offices. Our designer frames provide a balance of functionality and value, as well as quality. Glasses should be sturdy so that they can withstand breakage and bending, but they should also provide the highest quality vision possible. Different prescriptions require different lenses to fit comfortably.

The wrong reading glasses Lady Lake can cause headaches. Our eye doctor will create a prescription that fits your eyes perfectly. Our frames selection varies and is designed to fit our patient’s needs. Our contact lenses also come in many different types, such as daily disposable, and those for astigmatism and extended wear lenses. We also carry soft or hard contact lenses. Having the right prescription is key to having comfortable fitting contacts and eyeglasses, without the dryness that traditional lenses of the past may have had. Dry eyes can happen if contact lenses are worn for too long. Sometimes in this case eye drops can help.
