Improve Your Vision With Eyeglasses or Contact Lenses
If you previously enjoyed excellent vision but find that you are now having problems, you may resist the idea of wearing glasses or contacts. After all, glasses will change your appearance, and contacts require care and cleaning. However, once you realize how much these optical aids improve your vision, you’ll appreciate them!
Eyeglasses and contact lenses can correct your vision if you suffer from what are known as refractive errors. These include nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), blurred vision (astigmatism) and presbyopia, which is the loss of close-up vision that occurs with age.
Here are some indications that you may need eyeglasses or contact lenses:
- Your vision is blurry or distorted.
- When you’re in bright light, objects appear to have “halos” around them.
- You sometimes have double vision.
- You get a lot of headaches.
- You suffer from eye strain.
- Driving at night has become difficult, because you’re not seeing as well as you used to.
The Right Contact Lenses for You
Dr. Jay Chao’s extensive experience enables him to select the kind of contacts that are best for each patient’s individual needs. These include soft, rigid gas permeable (RGP), extended wear, disposable, hybrid and scleral contacts. He has training with specialty contact lenses for patients who have difficulty wearing them because of keratoconus, complications from refractive surgery, corneal irregularities, glaucoma, dry eyes, diabetic retinopathy, red eyes and binocular vision dysfunction (BVD).
