Myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism, and hypermetropia are conditions treated by the utilization of corrective lenses.
SEEING AN EYE DOCTOR VS. STORE BOUGHT READING GLASSES
Very few patients, when faced with the need, can successfully make do with a pair of reading glasses purchased from a pharmacy or local drug store. There are, however, two major reasons to visit your optometrist rather than opting for making a trip to the drug store:
- Detection of eye diseases can only take place during regular eye examinations. If many eye diseases are detected during their early stages, they can be treated, preventing a lifetime of consequences should they not be given attention.
- For patients suffering from headaches from drug store reading glasses, this is caused in general by one of two things: Eyes are not centered appropriately in each lens, and/or each eye may have a slightly different prescription.
