We offers several benefits for those who need vision correction. Opticians are knowledgeable about the latest advancements in lens technology and can help patients choose the best lenses for Your needs.
Eye exams and vision testing
Eye exams and vision testing are medical evaluations performed by an optometrist or ophthalmologist to assess the health of a person’s eyes and determine their visual acuity (sharpness of vision).
The tests include measuring visual acuity, assessing the health of the eye, checking for any visual impairments or eye diseases, and determining the appropriate prescription for glasses or contact lenses. These exams are important for maintaining good eye health and correcting any visual impairments.
Prescription-based glasses and contact lenses
Prescription-based glasses and contact lenses are eyewear that are custom made for an individual based on their specific prescription. The prescription is determined by an eye exam and vision test performed by an optometrist or ophthalmologist. The prescription includes information on the lens type, power, and any additional features such as progressive or anti-reflective coating. The optician uses this prescription to dispense the correct glasses or contact lenses for the individual, ensuring that they receive the best possible correction for their visual needs.
Education on lens options and visual hygiene
Education on lens options and visual hygiene involves providing information and advice to individuals on the various types of lenses and lens features available, as well as the importance of maintaining good eye health and hygiene. This education is typically provided by an optician. They may discuss different lens materials, coatings, and tints, as well as the benefits and drawbacks of each option. They may also provide advice on how to properly care for and clean glasses and contacts, and how to maintain good visual hygiene to protect the health of the eyes. The goal of this education is to help individuals make informed decisions about their eyewear and to promote good eye health.
Repair and adjustment of eyewear
Repair and adjustment of eyewear involves fixing any issues with glasses or contact lenses to ensure that they are functioning correctly and comfortably. This can include repairing broken frames, tightening loose screws, and adjusting the fit of the eyewear. The optician is typically the professional who performs these services, and they use specialized tools and techniques to make the necessary repairs and adjustments. The goal is to keep the eyewear in good condition and functioning properly, so that the individual can continue to use them effectively.
Dispensing and fitting of eyewear
Dispensing and fitting of eyewear involves the process of selecting, preparing, and adjusting eyeglasses or contact lenses for an individual based on their prescription and personal needs. This is typically done by an optician. The optician will use the prescription provided by the optometrist or ophthalmologist to dispense the correct eyewear. They will then perform a fitting to ensure that the glasses or contacts fit properly and are comfortable for the individual to wear. This may involve adjusting the frames, ensuring that the lenses are centered, and making any necessary modifications to ensure a proper fit. The goal of dispensing and fitting is to provide the individual with the best possible vision correction and comfort.
Screening for eye diseases and referral to an ophthalmologist if necessary.
Screening for eye diseases involves checking for any signs or symptoms of eye conditions or diseases during an eye exam. This can include checking for cataracts, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and other conditions. If any signs or symptoms are detected, the optometrist or optician may refer the individual to an ophthalmologist for further evaluation and treatment. An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases and conditions. The goal of screening for eye diseases is to detect and treat any issues as early as possible, to help preserve the health of the eyes and maintain good vision.
