When can an optometrist help you?

When you have concerns about your visual health, you don’t always need to go to an eye doctor – you can start by visiting an optometrist. An optometrist is a specialist who examines your vision acuity and advises you on eyeglass prescription and prescription renewal matters, as well as on fitting contact lenses and their prescriptions.

People who wear contact lenses should visit an optometrist at least once a year to have a specialist examine the eyes. That way you get regular informatin and good advice on your visual health matters and about using your contact lenses.

An optometrist mostly handles healthy eyes but if a condition indicating eye disease is discovered during the process of contact lens fitting, check-ups or eyeglass prescription, then you will be instructed to make an appointment to the eye doctor.

When would you need reading glasses?

People with good visual health first notice changes after age 40. The elasticity of the lens has decreased to an extent that with the same correction, the eye muscles are no longer able to focus the lens to different distances equally well. The closer we look, the more the muscles are forced to make an effort. Therefore, the first complaints are usually about near vision. The symptoms being that eyes get tired faster when reading, in case of poor lighting and small text. The text is being pushed further away from the eyes.

When you have such symptoms, make sure to make an appointment to an optometrist who will then examine your eyes and prescribe reading glasses.
