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.
