For children, parents and grandparents alike, periodic eye examinations are essential for preventing, diagnosing and treating conditions that can compromise your vision. Many common refractive errors, such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism can be diagnosed in childhood with a routine eye care. If your child has a visual impairment, corrective lenses, vision therapy and other treatments can help him or her reach important developmental milestones and thrive socially and academically. For those children who require eyeglasses, our showroom offers an extensive selection of colorful eyewear with fun designs your child will love to wear. We’ll also discuss with you and every member of your family the best ways to protect your eyes from becoming compromised by injury or sun exposure. Because of the impact UV rays have on eyesight, sunglasses are crucial for people of all ages. A good pair of sunglasses helps protect against macular degeneration and cataracts, which are leading causes of vision loss in people over 40. Not only is macular degeneration more common in older adults, but presbyopia, glaucoma and cataracts are also more likely to develop with age. For this reason it’s important to schedule a baseline eye exam to tests for these conditions at the age of 40. Presbyopia, can be corrected with reading glasses, bifocals or progressive lenses. While glaucoma is not curable, it can be managed to prevent against further vision loss if detected early on.
