Ã‚Â We "see" things every day, from the moment we get up in the morning until we go to sleep at night. Sight is our primary sense for maneuvering around in our environment. It keeps us safe and allows us to find wherever we wish to be. Through sight, we are able to appreciate the graceful human form, a kids' crayon drawing, a fine oil painting, swirling computer graphics, gorgeous sunsets, blooming gardens, rainbows and so much more. We rely on mirrors to make ourselves presentable, signs to give us direction, and sparkling gemstones to show affection.
But, did you ever stop to think that when we see any of these things, we are not directly connected to them? And that we are, in fact, only seeing light - light that bounces off objects far or near and into our eyes. Light is all our eyes can really see.
The best way to ensure a lifetime of good vision is through regular, comprehensive eye examinations. In addition to ensuring proper eyesight, regular exams allow the early detection and treatment of diseases, improving the likelihood for successful treatment. Several eye diseases, such as glaucoma, show no symptoms in their beginning stages and can only be detected by a qualified examiner.
Not all eye examinations need be comprehensive. Some may be specifically formatted for the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of a specific complaint. Generally, a comprehensive examination takes about hour, depending upon the number and type of tests required.
Please contact us anytime! We look forward to hearing from you.
The lens becomes flatter for distance and rounder for close vision.
During childhood, people with normal vision have the ability to focus on objects as close as their nose and also on objects very far away. They can rapidly, without conscious thought, switch focus from near to far vision and back again. This is called accommodation and is accomplished by the flexing of the internal lens.
As each year passes, that ability to focus and to switch focus decreases. By the time most people reach their forties, they need an aid, such as reading glasses or bifocals, to focus on objects close up. This condition is called presbyopia.
