Having an annual eye exam is important for maintaining the health of your eyes. Some eye conditions can be prevented with early detection. Many insurances provide for annual eye exams. Our comprehensive eye exam includes a complete health and eye history, a thorough eye health evaluation including testing for cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration, and a expert evaluation to determine a prescription for lenses. Dr. Mishcon then explains the results of the examination and makes recommendations to meet your visual needs.

About Corrective lenses:

There are also three different types of focusing problems which may require the need for corrective lenses.

These are:

  • Myopia ("Nearsightedness")
  • Hyperopia ("Farsightedness")
  • Astigmatism

Myopia or nearsightedness is inherited and often discovered in children when they are eight to twelve years old. A myopic eye is longer than normal, causing light rays to focus in front of the retina. This causes close objects to look clear, but distant objects appear blurred.

Hyperopia or farsightedness is caused by light entering the eye and focusing behind the retina. A hyperopic eye is shorter than normal. Older people who are farsighted can see far away objects better than those close at hand. Most children are normally a little farsighted but have no problems seeing objects up close or at a distance. Hyperopia needs to be corrected in young people if it causes decreased vision or is associated with crossed eyes.

Astigmatism occurs when light rays enter the eye and focus at different places on the retina. It distorts and blurs vision for both near and far objects. In a normal eye, the cornea (front surface of the eye) is round, like a basketball. If you have astigmatism, the cornea is shaped more like a football.
