Getting Serious on Eye Care: 3 Steps to Clearer Vision – Part 3: Determining Which Eye Care Services You Need

Book Appointment

It isn’t helpful if your specialist offers just one or two services. If you want better and more effective solutions to your vision needs, make sure your choice of professional is able to offer an extensive range of services. Here are some of the most sought-after eye care services they should capably handle:

  • Comprehensive Eye Exams. The most basic service, this is also one of the most important. Eye exams help determine existing vision problems so you can have them treated promptly. Eye exams allow you to catch the early warning signs of an eye condition to better prevent them worsening. Additionally, these exams track your eye health and vision history, helping maintain clear and good eyesight with every appointment. Make sure to visit your trusted clinic on a regular basis.
  • Family Eye Care. You’ll want an eye doctor who can give personalized eye care services for all members of the family. This ensures continuous clear and healthy vision as you age, helping you through the eye-related challenges of middle age and beyond. A family-oriented clinic should provide high-quality services in a fun and friendly environment. They’ll carefully and accurately chart your eye-related issues, treatments, and prescriptions, while ensuring proper eye care for your children from an early age.
  • Orthokeratology. Also known as OrthoK, this treatment involves fitting specially designed contact lenses you can wear as you sleep. These gently reshape your corneas (the front surface of your eyes) overnight so that you can see more clearly in the morning without the benefit of eyeglasses or standard contact lenses. Because these special lenses are gas permeable, they allow your eyes to “breathe” while you’re wearing them, ensuring a more comfortable fit. OrthoK is a specialized service, so make sure to choose an eye doctor who has considerable knowledge and experience working with these lenses.
  • Myopia Control. People with myopia, or nearsightedness, can see nearby objects properly but have difficulty with those that are at a distance. This is a growing problem for people across the country—in fact, the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey has found the incidence of myopia in Americans ages 12 to 54  increased by 41% from 1972 to 2004. The right contact lenses and eyeglasses, however, can correct myopia effectively. Make sure your choice of eye specialist carries high-quality and stylish options for you and your family.

Once you’ve taken these steps into account, ensuring a lifetime of good and healthy eyesight is easily achievable. Just remember that proper eye care involves working with a trusted professional who can provide the best solutions for your potential vision problems.
