Get a Comprehensive Eye Examination
Every individual should schedule a routine eye exam at least once a year, even if they have “perfect” vision. This examination will help you understand the health of your eyes in greater detail, and alert you to more serious health problems that impact vision, such as diabetes. During an eye exam, the optometrist will check your eyes for the following conditions.
- Crossed eyes
- Near and farsightedness
- Eye diseases
- Damage to optical nerves
Ortho-k, short for Orthokeratology, is a noninvasive procedure that physically reshapes your corneas. It is an excellent solution for individuals suffering from both nearsightedness and farsightedness. The treatment will require you to wear a pair of custom-designed contact lenses at night, either several or a few times a week. As time progresses, your vision will improve and you will no longer need to wear glasses or corrective lenses during the daytime.
If you suffer from astigmatism, nearsightedness or farsightedness, you may be able to benefit from LASIK surgery. This surgery uses a laser to correct the aforementioned problems, and it is currently the most effective refractive surgery in the country. This is an elective procedure, but it can significantly reduce your need to rely on contact lenses or glasses.
