Whatever the cause of your dry eyes, you can alleviate the effects in the vast majority of cases with a combination of treatment and lifestyle adjustments. At Optical Outlets, we want you to experience the best possible eye function, and that includes ensuring that they have the proper amount of lubrication.
Environmental factors can either cause dry eyes or can make them worse. Among them are exposure to wind, and indoor heat. It’s also true that smoke, your own and second hand, can contribute to the problem. If you work a great deal in front of a computer, you may also experience dry eyes. All of the above could be in addition to your eyes not producing the right amount of tears, or the composition of those tears being of poor quality. So with all the potential causes, it makes sense to come in and see our optometrist in Clermont for expert attention, especially if you have symptoms such as discomfort, a feeling as if something is in your eye, sensitivity to light, or redness. In addition conducting an eye examination, our optometrist in Clermont may also perform tests to measure the volume of tears and the quality of them. Fortunately, in most cases it is possible to counteract the impact of dry eyes with artificial tears, a type of eye drops that restores needed moisture. In more severe cases, other forms of treatment might be required. And if the problem keeps recurring, it’s possible that tear duct surgery could be helpful. The good news is that this is not common. In addition, you might want to consider a humidifier at home, and it’s a good idea to wear either sunglasses or eyeglasses outside on windy days.
Our office will schedule an appointment for you to see our optometrist in Clermont, so reach out to us to set up a time.
Those looking for a quality eye doctor in Clermont should call Optical Outlets today about their astigmatism. Patients who have a high astigmatism will need glasses for both near and distance vision, so bifocal type lenses are ideal for patients with astigmatism. Patients with astigmatism can also wear contact lenses.
Any changes in vision should be taken seriously, as if you need an updated prescription, you may be experiencing eye strain or headaches. Many patients do not have changes to their eyes over time. Generally, contact lens prescriptions are done at least once a year, while eyeglass prescriptions go out for longer than a year. Our eye doctor in Clermont provides many different types of lenses for astigmatism, nearsightedness and farsightedness. Both bifocal and trifocals are ideal for reading and computer vision and close up activities, as well as driving. Trifocal lenses contain three lens powers in one lens. Multifocal eyeglass lenses are very common for many patients who need corrective lenses. Bifocals are fitted so that the line rests at the same height of the lower eyelid and have two different powers in the same lens. They usually offer correction for both near and far visions.
Bifocal contact lenses are lenses that act as bifocals, just like frame eyeglasses. They split the lens in half in order to have different powers in one lens. In bifocal lenses, the lower part of the lens usually contains the power that corrects nearsighted vision while the rest of the lens covers the distance vision.
Thanks to advances in optical technology, patients who wear bifocals can now have them in contact lenses. Our eye doctor in Clermont can tell you more about how we can help you have healthy, functioning eyes with regular annual exams and other eye services.
Astigmatism is an irregular curvature of the cornea, which can cause a refractory error. Nearly everyone has astigmatism to some degree, the extent to which the cornea is curved determines whether or not the person experiences a problem with his/her vision and to what degree. It also determines whether or not treatment is needed and what type. Our optometry in Clermont practice can help you diagnose whether you have astigmatism and the best treatment solution for you.
According to the doctor at the Optical Outlets optometry in Clermont shop, a normal eye is spherical in shape and when light enters it refracts evenly creating a clear vision of the object. An eye with astigmatism is shaped like the back of a spoon, light entering the eye is refracted more in one direction, so only one part of the object is in focus at a time. To a person with astigmatism an object at any distance can appear blurry and wavy, depending on the degree of curvature. Symptoms of astigmatism include headaches, fatigue, blurry vision and eye strain. Since these same symptoms can signal many different disorders, an eye examination at our office is the best way to determine if astigmatism is the cause of the problem. Our practice recommends regular eye exams because astigmatism can worsen over time, often at a slow rate.
The good news is that almost all cases of astigmatism can be treated through the use of properly prescribes eyeglasses or contact lenses from our optometry in Clermont shop. Contact lenses or glasses are usually prescribed for people with a moderate or high degree of astigmatism, or those that also have other vision problems, such as nearsightedness or farsightedness. If only a mild case of astigmatism is present with no other vision problems then the patient usually doesn’t need any treatment at all. In some more extreme cases refractive surgery may be recommended. For those who are best helped by wearing corrective lenses, a special type of lens, called a toric lens is usually prescribed. Please visit our office to determine what your vision needs are and how we can help you see your best.
