Do you think you need a new eyeglass prescription or contact lens prescription? Perhaps you are not seeing as clearly as you use to and are wondering if this is due to needing a new prescription or to some eye changes? In either case, it is important that you make an appointment to see our optometrist in Lowland at Yandell Eyecare.
At Yandell Eyecare our skilled optometrists are able to provide expert eye exams, eye care, and contact lens exams and fittings. Our office has state-of-the-art equipment so that your eye exam will be performed using the most modern techniques and equipment available. Whether you are having an eye exam or a contact lens exam and fitting, a portion of the eye exam will be devoted to measuring your refractive errors, and determining if your eyes have any eye diseases or disorders. During the first part of the exam your eyes will be examined to see if they are nearsighted, farsighted, or have an astigmatism. If any of these situations are discovered by our optometrist in Lowland, he will be able to write the appropriate eyeglass or contact lens prescription for you.
Our optometrist in Lowland will also screen your eyes for any possible eye diseases or disorders. Your eyes will be checked for: glaucoma; diabetic retinopathy; dry eyes; cataracts; retinal tears; and other common problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. If an eye problem is discovered you will either be able to get expert eye care at our practice, or if needed, you will be referred to an ophthalmologist who will be able to provide you with advanced care. If you are having a contact lens exam our optometrist will need to take certain measurements of your eyes. The curvature of your cornea will be measured, as well as the size of your iris. This information is included as part of your contact lens prescription. If contact lenses do not fit perfectly they can actually damage your cornea, and even cause permanent vision loss if the problem is left untreated. For this reason you never want to use contacts that belong to someone else, even if the refractive vision correction is the same. Our optometrist will also speak to you about various contact lens options, and write your contact lens prescription for a specific lens brand and type. If you would like to come in for a contact lens exam, a comprehensive eye exam, or other type of eye care make an appointment today.
