If you have a vision deficit, prescription eyewear may assist. It works by redirecting how light shines on the retina. As a result, it helps corrects refractive errors. Not only can we provide you with a vision screening, but at Rice Family Vision, serving Duncan, OK, we can help you determine which variety is right for you.
We can treat both nearsightedness and farsightedness with prescription eyewear. Nearsightedness, also known as myopia, is a condition that occurs when you can't see objects in the distance clearly. It's also can be referred to as hypometropia. On the other hand, farsightedness, also known as hyperopia, happens when you can't see images up close clearly.
In addition to hyperopia and myopia control, an optometrist on our team can provide you with treatment if you have blurry vision for another reason. For instance, if you have astigmatism, your vision will look blurry far away and possibly up close. The light enters your eye and scatters, which can cause blurry vision at all distances. Prescription eyewear can change how the light enters the eye.
Besides hypometropia and hypermetropia treatment, our optometry specialist may also treat presbyopia -- aged-related farsightedness. With this condition, you may only need to wear prescription eyewear when you're reading or doing close-up work.
Vision Screening and Eye Health Check
Before our optometry specialist can provide you with eyewear, you'll need to undergo a vision screening. During this part of the appointment, your practitioner will ask you to read lines of letters at different magnifying powers. When you identify the ones, you can see clearest, we can determine the magnification power needed for your eyewear.
At this point of your appointment, we also provide you with an eye health check. This helps us determine if your eyes are healthy enough for contacts or if eyeglasses will better correct your vision.
Types of Prescription Eyewear Available
For hyperopia and myopia control along with eyewear for astigmatism or presbyopia, our practitioner can provide you with eyeglasses or contacts. We offer various types of eyeglasses, including standard glasses, bifocals, and trifocals. You may opt for transition lenses, or we can supply you with a separate part of sunglasses to ensure you can see when you're outside.
