Optometrists are healthcare professionals who provide primary vision care ranging from sight testing and correction to the diagnosis, treatment, and management of vision changes.
An optometrist is not a medical doctor.
If you have pain with normal eye movement or if you feel pain for more than a few days in a row that you can’t attribute to a lack of sleep or allergies, schedule an appointment with an optometrist.
If your vision feels blurry, chances are good that your eyesight is not as good as it once was.
The average lifespan of a pair of glasses is between one and three years. In addition to how sturdy your frames and lenses are, your eye prescription can affect the longevity of your new eyewear.
Eyeglasses offer many benefits over contact lenses:
- They require very little cleaning and maintenance.
- You don’t need to touch your eyes to wear them (decreasing your risk for eye infections).
- Glasses are cheaper than contact lenses in the long run since they don’t need to be replaced as often.
