The comprehensive eye exam looks at your eye externally and internally for any signs of eye disease, then tests your vision in a variety of ways.
Correcting your vision in an optometry clinic starts with determining your specific needs. At Wear Eyewear in Chicago and Orland Park, we offer a contact lens exam from our optometrist to help determine the appropriate prescription, type of lenses and lens size for your eyes.
Unfortunately in today's society, the desire to do things more quickly often leads to an inferior quality of work. Do you remember your last eye exam? Did you leave the office wondering if you possibly made the wrong decision when the eye doctor asked you which was better, 1 or 2? Have you ever been told you have astigmatism and felt ashamed because you didn't really know what that means? Get ready for a different kind of eye exam at Wear Eyewear.
Most people enjoy trying on eyeglasses and seeing how different they look in different styles in the mirror but feel less than positive about which decisions they should make for their lenses. Thin, Ultra-thin, Lightweight, Glare Coating, Transition, Progressive; everything starts to run together. Get ready for a different kind of experience at Wear Eyewear. Starting with your eye exam, Dr. Jones will consult with you to uncover your needs and try to help you make decisions that make sense with your prescription and your lifestyle.
LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileuses), is the most popular refractive surgical procedure. In this procedure, a laser is used to permanently change the shape of the cornea (the clear covering on the front of the eye) to correct common vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia. This improves vision and reduces a person's need for glasses or contact lenses.
Eye injuries can happen anywhere. Accidents can happen during high-risk activities, but also in places where you least expect them. There are things that can be done to decrease the risk of eye injuries, including wearing protective eyewear when using power tools or engaging in high-risk sporting events, following the directions carefully when working with chemicals or cleaning supplies, keeping scissors, knives, and other sharp instruments away from young children, and keeping a distance from amateur fireworks.
Just a few decades ago, computer vision syndrome (CVS) was not known or understood. However, with an increase in the role of computers in our lives, it has become an increasingly common issue. Researchers believe that 50-90% of people who use computers in their daily lives have experienced CVS to some degree. The amount of time that many people stare into a computer screen is increasing, which puts significant strain on our eyes.
