Choosing to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses for vision correction mostly depends on personal preferences. Lifestyle, comfort, convenience, budget, and aesthetics should all factor into your decision-making process. Our staff of experienced eye doctors at our Mt. Vernon eye shop take the time to discuss how different prescription lenses can impact your vision, answer any questions you might have, and supply you with the most up-to-date information in order to keep your eyes healthy. One of the most important ways to preserve your vision and keep your eyes in the best health possible is to visit Metro Optics to ensure you have the correct optical prescription.
It is very important that your lenses are fitted correctly based on your prescription, eye shape, and specific needs. Personalized to you, no two eye examinations or eyewear prescriptions are the same. Each patient will be evaluated with a refraction slit lamp, intraocular pressure, and a retinal exam. Your and comprehensive exam will also test visual acuity, eye tracking and focusing skills, as well as detect problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, amblyopia, crossed eyes, dyslexia, and color blindness. Our team of caring optometrists at our Mt. Vernon eye shop will also check for eye disease during your exam, as well as assess how your eyes work together, and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health. In addition to helping detect developing conditions, regular eye exams are also important to check on how your vision is functioning. If you use prescription lenses, you should especially be visiting us for eye exams so that you can be sure your current prescription is up-to-date, and that your eyeglasses and/or contact lenses are functioning correctly and comfortably.
At Metro Optics, our greatest satisfaction comes from improving vision and enhancing the quality of life for your whole family– and our vision specialists believe the best place to start is by educating and informing our patients about the various types of eyeglasses.
