Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between an Optometrist, Ophthalmologist and Optician?
An Optician is involved in the fitting and making of eyeglasses. Optometrists and Ophthalmologists are both eye doctors who diagnose and treat various vision conditions and eye diseases. The main difference between an Optometrist and Ophthalmologist is that an Ophthalmologist is also trained to do eye surgery.
Should I get my eyes examined if I don’t need eyeglasses?
Yes. An eye exam is much more than just checking your vision. A comprehensive eye health evaluation is also performed during an eye exam. A person may have no complaints and 20/20 vision and still suffer from conditions such as retinal breaks or tears, glaucoma, cataracts, retinopathy from diabetes or high blood pressure, melanoma of the eye, etc.
Why should I be concerned about glaucoma if my vision is fine?
The most common types of glaucoma involve a slowly progressing destruction of the Optic Nerve of the eye. In general, it initially affects peripheral vision in a way that isn’t noticeable without specialized testing. A person with glaucoma will usually be in the advanced stages before noticing any problems with vision. With special testing glaucoma is usually easy to detect in the early stages and it is treatable with eye drops. In some cases surgery may be required if eye drops do not adequately control the glaucoma.
What is Astigmatism? How is Astigmatism corrected?
Astigmatism is a refractive error usually associated with an irregularly shaped cornea. A spherical cornea creates a single focal point while an astigmatic, irregularly shaped cornea creates more than one point of focus. As a result the image that is formed on the retina of the eye is blurred. Glasses, contact lenses and refractive surgery may all be used to correct Astigmatism.
Can contact lenses be worn for sports?
Yes, contact lenses provide excellent vision for most sports. However, keep in mind that contacts do not provide protection from injury. Contact lens wearers should consider using sports safety goggles for maximum protection during sports activities.
