Regardless of your age or physical health, a comprehensive eye exam is important for detecting any eye problems at their early stages. Even if you have 20/20 vision, an eye exam can be a measure of overall health. The eyes are the only part of the body where arteries and veins can be viewed without having to perform surgery. Eyecare providers can see signs of stroke, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, brain tumors, multiple sclerosis and more, through an eye exam. In addition, they can determine whether a person with age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, retinitis pigmentosa or cataracts is suffering also from low vision, which is a condition associated with these age-related eye diseases.
During a comprehensive eye exam, your eye doctor will not only determine if you require a prescription for eyeglasses, but they will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as indicators of your overall health.
An ophthalmologist is a doctor – an M.D. – with expertise in medical and surgical eye problems who performs operations on the eyes. An ophthalmologist can perform a comprehensive eye exam. An optometrist is a health care specialist who assists patients with the health of the eyes and related vision. Optometrists are trained to prescribe and fit lenses to improve vision. They also diagnose and treat various eye diseases. An optometrist can perform a comprehensive eye exam. An optician is a specialized practitioner who designs, fits and dispenses lenses for the correction of a person's vision. Opticians determine the specifications of various ophthalmic solutions – from prescription, to eyeglass frames, to lens technology – that will give the necessary and best correction to a person's eyesight.
Patients have more choices than ever before when it comes to choosing prescription eyewear. Our members provide a wide range of eyewear products from value-based to luxury, and are available everywhere from online, to independent eyecare provider offices, to mass retailers. What's more is insurance and managed vision care benefits often cover some or all of the cost of glasses and/or contact lenses. No matter your price point, style preference, or eye health needs, you can find the right eyewear for you. We recommend everyone – from children to adults – receive an annual eye exam to rule out eye disease, identify changes in vision and to get an updated prescription. Your eyecare provider is a great place to start your search for your next favourite pair of eyewear.
Digital eye strain is the discomfort many individuals feel after looking at a digital screen for longer than two hours at a time.
Eyewear is available with specialized lenses featuring digital eye strain-reducing capabilities. The Vision Council recommends individuals and their child(ren) visit a local eyecare provider to discuss their digital habits and what eyewear solutions are available to relieve the symptoms of digital eye strain. In addition to eyewear solutions, there are simple changes you can make in your daily digital device usage to relieve some of the symptoms you may be experiencing, including: reducing overhead lighting to eliminate screen glare; positioning yourself at an arm's length distance from the screen; increasing text size on devices to better define content on the screen; and continuously taking breaks from looking at digital screens and focusing on something in the distance to relax the eyes, commonly known as the 20-20-20 rule.
