Daily Vision Requirements

Today’s contact lenses offer satisfying and safe solutions to address an extensive range of vision needs. If you are interested in wearing contact lenses, the vision care professionals at the office of Optical Outlets will examine your eyes to determine which type of lenses will provide you with the most accurate and comfortable fit as well as suit your daily vision requirements.

At present over 35 million Americans utilize contact lenses. While most individuals wear contact lenses for corrective purposes, a smaller percentage of people use them for either a therapeutic or cosmetic purpose. Corrective contact lenses are used to provide clear, crisp vision for individuals who are dealing with either one or a combination of vision impairments, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and the age-related loss of close-up vision, which is known as presbyopia

Choosing the correct type of contact lenses to provide a healthy and comfortable vision experience is based on your prescription, eyes shape and daily needs. Our eye doctor will measure your eyes to select the proper lens type and fit as well as determine the precise amount of vision correction that is required. Thanks to advances in optical technology, today’s contact lenses are not only much more comfortable, versatile and convenient than ever before; they can address an extensive range of vision needs. While for many people getting contact lenses is a routine procedure that offers a relatively quick and easy solution for their vision needs, there are others who fall into the “Hard to Fit” category. Our office also offers hard-to-fit contact lenses for the treatment of eye irregularities related to disease or injury.

Contacts to Improve Your Eye Health

While today’s eyewear offers countless stylish options, you may not want to limit yourself to wearing glasses all the time.Contact lenses offer a full-time or part-time alternative to glasses, allowing you to see clearly while providing greater freedom and flexibility. At the office of Optical Outlets we offer a selection of contacts to improve your eye health and vision. We’ll help determine which type of lens is right for you and can precisely fit your lenses for optimal comfort and effectiveness.

Contact lenses are small synthetic lenses, which rest on top of the film of tears covering the surfaces of your eyes. 35 million people across the United States are choosing contact lenses for the numerous advantages they offer. With contacts, you don’t have to worry about the limitations of eyeglass frames; your entire field of vision comes into focus. You can also forget about glare when you’re driving at night, as well as the effects of weather on your lenses. Contacts won’t fog up or get wet in the rain. You’ll also be able to wear any sunglasses you choose, without having to match your prescription to every pair. Contacts can be used to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, blurred vision and age-related vision loss, and can correct irregularities caused by certain eye diseases and injuries. The most popular contacts are soft lenses, which are made from water absorbing hydrogels for maximum comfort. These types of contacts can be disposable or used for extended wear. For certain conditions, such as astigmatism and presbyopia, rigid gas permeable lenses may be a better option. This type of contact lens allows oxygen to pass through to the eye, and is made of more durable materials than soft lenses, which means they can last for years.

Information About Cataract Surgery

Blurred vision could be a sign of cataracts. At the office of Optical Outlets, we can provide a proper diagnosis and make sure you get the care you need!

What Are Cataracts?

Cataracts are films that form in the lens of the eye that can impair your vision. This is a very common condition for both men and women aged 60 and over. If you do have cataracts, rest assured, they can be removed and your vision will be restored.

What Causes Cataracts?

Cataracts form due to a breakdown of the protein in the lens of your eye. This is a normal part of the aging process and usually develops slowly, over time. When the protein breaks down it can result in cloudy vision.

Some other causes of cataracts include:
• Family history of cataracts
• Diabetes
• Certain eye injuries
• Sun damage
• Certain medications such as corticosteroids

It’s always important to wear anti-UV ray sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun. This can even help slow the development of cataracts. We can discuss with you the best ways to care for your eyes and provide a referral if you would like to get more information about cataract surgery.

Getting a Cataract Diagnosis

We will perform an eye exam to determine if you do have cataracts. You may have them in one or both eyes. If you do, we will refer you to an ophthalmologist to determine if surgery is right for you. Sometimes glasses alone are all that’s needed to correct the vision issue. However, it can be very helpful to have the cataracts removed if you are having trouble seeing or driving or performing your every day activities. It’s typically not an emergency procedure, so you can take time to consider your surgical options in care.

Glaucoma is just one eye disease which shows no symptoms in the early stages. However, it is during this early stage that you want to treat glaucoma to prevent permanent vision loss. When you come to our vision practice for a comprehensive eye exam, glaucoma is one of the eye diseases that your eyes will be screened for. This means that if you do have glaucoma, our Lady Lake eye doctor will be able to determine this, and provide you with treatment. Usually, glaucoma can easily be treated with medicated eye drops when it is found in the early stages. These eye drops keep the glaucoma from advancing and will protect your treasured vision. Unfortunately, vision lost to glaucoma cannot generally be restored.

So it is extremely important that you have an annual eye exam to screen for this and other eye diseases. During our eye exams, your eyes will be thoroughly checked for many different eye diseases including: glaucoma; cataracts; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; retinal tears; dry eyes; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. Our eye doctor will also determine whether or not you need to have eyeglasses in order to see clearly. If so, your eyes will be checked so that the proper vision prescription can be written whether you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism. We also offer a complete contact lens exam and fitting which also includes a complete eye health exam.
