If you or your child have myopia, you know that it can be frustrating to deal with. Your blurry vision can keep you from doing everything you want and need to do. Finally, Fifty Dollar Eye Guy in Pensacola, FL, understands. Here are some ways we can help you control your myopia.
Regular Eye Exams
Eyes change over the years, so you must get regular eye exams. We can provide an adult or children's eye exam for you regularly. A pediatric eye exam is essential since children’s bodies, including their eyes, develop quickly. These eye exams help us to find problems early and adjust your prescription as necessary, ensuring you can always see clearly.
Eyeglasses are a prevalent form of myopia control for adults and children. After a pediatric eye exam or adult appointment, your eye doctor will tell you if you need new glasses. You can buy your new glasses right here, giving you a convenient place to do everything. Mirrors come in many different styles, so you can take some time to find the one that fits after your pediatric eye exam. Then the staff will get them ready for you to come back later.
Contact lenses are another option if you have myopia and don’t want to wear glasses. A pediatric eye doctor can determine if your child is ready for contact. If you are an adult, you’ll also need an exam before getting them. Contact lenses allow for a broader range of clear vision than glasses. They also allow you to do more activities without the fear of breaking your glasses. If the doctor says they can try contacts after your children's eye exam, they will teach both of you how to take care of them.
If an adult wants to treat their myopia permanently, they might consider getting Lasik surgery. This surgery corrects the shape of the cornea, allowing them to wear glasses or contacts no longer to see appropriately. If you are interested in Lasik, your optometrist can help you determine if you are a good candidate for the surgery. While it does require recovery time afterward, you’ll be able to see clearly.
