Eye Doctor Parkchester

Eyeglass Prescriptions Parkchester

Here at Vision World of Parkchester, one of the most common eye conditions that our Parkchester eye doctor diagnoses in patients is nearsightedness. The technical name for nearsightedness is myopia. Myopia is a vision condition that is characterized by unclear vision when looking at objects from a distance, but clearer vision while looking at objects close to you. The reasoning behind nearsightedness is either that your eyeball is too long, or that your cornea is curved too much, keeping the light that enters your eye from focusing correctly and leaving objects far away looking blurry and unclear.

Nearsightedness Parkchester

Nearsightedness Parkchester

Nearsightedness is known to be hereditary, and some studies show that it can also be linked to putting too much stress on your eyes due to an excess of close work or computer work. In most cases, symptoms of nearsightedness tend to develop during childhood or early adolescence, but it can develop in adults later life as well. If you are having trouble seeing objects at a distance from you clearly, you should schedule an appointment with our Parkchester eye doctor. We can easily confirm a diagnosis of nearsightedness after a comprehensive eye exam here at Vision World of Parkchester. If you are diagnosed with nearsightedness, it is good to know it is highly common and very treatable. Nearsightedness affects about thirty percent of the population. Nearsightedness can easily be treated with the use of prescription eyeglasses, prescription contact lenses, or even corrective surgeries like LASIK. To make the process even easier, we have a variety of eyeglasses and contact lenses for you to choose from right here at Vision World of Parkchester, so you can have your eyes examined and get the vision supplies you need all in one place.

If you are interested in learning more about some basic eye health topics and the related eye care products and services made available by our Parkchester eye doctor, we encourage you to visit the main Vision World of Parkchester website to look through some additional information that you might find useful. If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with our staff, we hope you will not hesitate to contact us either by phone or online.

Vision Assessments Parkchester

Do you find your favorite paperback novel or e-reading device gives you more headaches than it does enjoyment? If you find yourself reaching for the bottle of over the counter painkillers you keep in your home before you even get to the end of another chapter, your headaches could be more than simply stress or dehydration. Headaches associated with reading are actually a symptom of eyestrain, a problem which occurs when an optical condition is beginning to take hold. Even if you have never had a problem seeing in your life, you can still develop vision problems as you age, and often much younger than many of us think. The only way to truly insure healthy vision at all stages of life is with regular eye exams from your local opticians in Parkchester at the welcoming practice of Vision World of Parkchester.

While we may feel young at heart, adults as early as 40 years of age will often begin to develop the first signs of a developing optical condition. As we grow older our eyes begin to develop a whole host of problems, the most common of which is known as presbyopia. Presbyopia occurs when the natural lens of your eyes loses its flexibility over time. As the natural lens continues to stiffen, so do your eyes continue to have increasing levels of difficulty focusing on objects up close, including your books, tablets, desktop computers, and any task that involves the need to see details at close range. This is not an optical disease which a person can avoid by staying healthy, but is in fact a natural side effect of aging. Symptoms of presbyopia include headaches and squinting when viewing or reading up close, as well holding said objects at arm’s length in order to see them more clearly. The first step to your optical diagnosis is with a comprehensive eye exam from your professional opticians in Parkchester. Only a state of the art eye exam can determined whether or not your vision problem is the work of presbyopia. Adults should be booking an appointment for an optical exam at least once a year, especially after the age of 40, in order to insure eyes are always seeing their best. Presbyopia can be easily treated with prescribed reading glasses from an optical care center.

The only way to maintain clear vision for a lifetime is with regular eye exams from your neighborhood opticians in Parkchester. Our fully licensed and professionally trained team at the welcoming offices of the Vision World of Parkchester strive to meet the needs of our patients with state of the art reading glasses and optical wear at affordable prices. With reading glasses from the Vision World of Parkchester you can rest assured that your eyes are always seeing their very best.

There are a variety of lenses available for prescription sunglasses at our Parkchester sunglass store, including polycarbonate, trivex, high-index, regular plastic, and even glass materials. Always a popular choice, lenses with photochromic tint automatically change their color according to the intensity of light. Prescription sunglasses can also work for people who have vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Our knowledgeable opticians recommend eye protection whenever you are in the sun to protect your eyes from ultraviolet radiation (UV), which can cause many serious eye conditions. Sunglasses are a form of protective eyewear designed mainly to prevent bright sunlight from damaging or upsetting your eyes. They can also function as a visual aid since your prescription lenses can be colored, polarized or darkened. All these benefits are available in designer sunglasses and almost all prescription and non-prescription sunglass lenses can be put into designer frames.

Sunglasses serve other important purposes besides blocking out the sun’s harmful rays and looking good. When you wear sunglasses to participate in sports activities, there are definitely certain sunglasses designed for certain sports. Many designers have also merged their signature good looks with a more functional, sports-minded lens. At our Parkchester sunglass store you can find some of your favorite designer sunglasses, designed to be worn while playing your sport of choice. If you don’t see a specific designer you like, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you. Good eye health should always be a main concern before choosing any eye wear and at our Parkchester sunglass store, you can see clearly while wearing your favorite frame.

Everyone’s eyes are different. Here at Vision World of Parkchester, we believe in providing the most personalized care possible in order to meet every patient’s specific and individual needs. Our opticians here at our Parkchester optical shop can walk you through our variety of lens options that can improve the quality of your lenses by suiting your specific needs. Some of our options include high index lenses, aspheric lenses and trivex lenses. High index lenses are a great option for those who have a strong prescription. While traditional lenses may be large and heavy for those with strong glasses prescriptions, high index lenses are made with a unique plastic that reflects light differently, allowing the lens to be lighter and thinner. These lenses will not only improve the appearance of your frames but they will also make wearing your lenses significantly more comfortable.

Aspheric lenses can improve your appearance when wearing your glasses. Stronger lens prescriptions can distort the appearance of your eyes due to their magnification, but these lenses decrease any such distortion and retain the natural appearance of your eye through the lens. Trivex lenses are often suggested for those with an active lifestyle or for children. They provide clear vision while remaining impact resistant. These are the perfect option for accident prone children or adults, those who perform heavy manual work, or play intensive sports.

Here at Vision World of Parkchester we are determine to help you and your family find frames and lenses suit you and your lifestyle best. Visit our Parkchester optical shop to explore your options with any of our helpful opticians who are here to aid you in finding the perfect vision correction option for you.

In order for you to get the very most out of your single vision lenses, you may want to consider some of the specialty upgrades we have available for single vision lenses at Vision World of Parkchester. For example, many customers choose to have their single vision eyeglasses equipped with polycarbonate lenses. Polycarbonate lenses are an excellent option to consider because they are much more lightweight than regular lenses, and they also have an increased resistance to impact. Similarly, customers are also frequently drawn to high-index single vision lenses because they are much thinner and lighter, making them easier and more comfortable to wear.

If you spend a lot of time outdoors, or if you simply are sick of switching back and forth from your prescription eyeglasses to your prescription sunglasses, photochromic single vision lenses may be the perfect option for you. Photochromic lenses utilize the latest technologies that allow the lenses to lighten or darken depending on your surroundings at the time. These are only some of the many single vision lens options we have available at our Parkchester eyeglasses store. We would love to give you a more personalized recommendation during your next visit with us.

Optical Store Westchester Village

Astigmatism is a common vision problem. In fact, most people have some degree of astigmatism, but may not even know it. Astigmatism is an optical condition that results blurred vision due to an irregularly shaped cornea, also known as the clear front cover of the eye. When the cornea has an irregular shape, it prevents the light from focusing properly on the retina, which results in blurred vision at all distances. Astigmatism can also sometimes be caused by curvature inside the eye. The treatment for astigmatism is dependent upon the severity of the condition. If someone has slight astigmatism, it usually doesn’t affect vision. Therefore, no treatment would be required. However treatment would be needed for more severe astigmatism (larger amounts) because of the symptoms associate with it. Larger amounts of astigmatism can cause symptoms such as headaches, distorted and blurred vision and eye discomfort. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms we recommend that you make an appointment for a comprehensive eye exam (which will test for astigmatism and other eye conditions and/or diseases) at our Westchester Village optical store, Vision World of Parkchester.

Eyeglass Prescriptions Westchester Village

Eyeglass Prescriptions Westchester Village

Astigmatism can be confirmed through a comprehensive eye exam at our Westchester Village optical store. The exam may include testing one’s visual acuity, keratometry (measures the curvature of the cornea) and refraction. Testing for astigmatism involves measuring how the eyes focus light and also determines the optical power of lenses that are necessary to compensate for the person’s reduced vision. Once the test is complete and astigmatism is confirmed, there are several options to provide the patient with visual clarity, which include but are not limited to getting corrective eyewear (eyeglasses or contact lenses).

If our expert optometrist confirms that you have astigmatism, you will be provided with an option of getting prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. Our entire professional, caring staff at Westchester Village optical store, Vision World of Parkchester is dedicated to providing you with the exceptional optical products and services you need and deserve. We have a fantastic selection of designer yet affordable eyeglasses in our store. We also have a variety of different contact lenses if you prefer them. We will help you to select the corrective that is best for you; that provides you with clear vision, comfort and matches your personality and lifestyle.

There has never been a better time than right now to come in to Vision World of Parkchester. With the end of the year fast approaching, there are some good reasons to use your health benefits now before the new year comes. Our Westchester Village opticians accept several different insurance programs, so make an appointment for your yearly comprehensive eye exam, update your current prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, or fill a new prescription for corrective lenses.

Prescription Eyewear Westchester Village

If your insurance carries a yearly deductible, this is an excellent time to visit our Westchester Village opticians. In January, your new deductible will apply but if you’ve used up this year’s then you should consider optimizing your budget by taking advantage now instead of paying out of pocket later. The same logic applies if your insurance has annual maximums and you have room left to reach that cap before January. Why should you leave it on the table when you can use it to take care of your eye health and your vision? Also, those with money in an FSA (flexible spending account) may have a balance left to use before the end of the current year. And with the Affordable Care Act kicking in at the beginning of 2014, this is a perfect opportunity to take care of something as important as your yearly comprehensive eye exam, eyeglasses, or contact lenses.

Among the insurances we accept are Fidelis, HIP (for glasses only), Medicaid, Patrolman’s Benevolent Association, Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and GHI. The others on our list are 1199, 32-BJ, Davis Vision, DC-37, Guildnet, Health First, Local 6, Local 237, Local 371, Metroplus, UFT, and Visiting Nurse Service. If you have insurance that is not listed here, call us and ask. Our Westchester Village opticians are always interested in trying to help.

So don’t delay. The year will be over before you know it and we wouldn’t want you to miss out on benefits you are entitled to. Call our Westchester Village opticians today and arrange an appointment for an eye exam or if you are just interested in getting glasses or contacts, come on in.

Eyeglass Store Parkchester

Eyeglass Store Parkchester

Ever since the infamous nickname “four eyes” became a bit too popular, people have been trying to hide the fact that they needed to wear glasses. Some very popular designers have joined ranks with eyeglass manufacturers in an attempt to lure consumers back into wearing prescription eyeglasses. It’s no surprise since research showed that over 168.5 million United States residents use vision correction such as eyeglasses or contacts, which represents 75 percent of our country’s total adult population. At our Parkchester eyeglass store, Vision World of Parkchester, we take vision care very seriously and are honest when asked, “Which type of vision correction is better?”

Vision Correction Parkchester

Vision Correction Parkchester

It really is ultimately up to you to choose what works best for you and your lifestyle. The key is taking the time to understand what your specific lifestyle demands are. For example, someone who is very trendy may prefer glasses because they add a certain sense of unique and intriguing style to your overall look. Your vision is corrected immediately once you put them on, and the mere convenience of being able to simply take them off and on. Glasses from our Parkchester eyeglass store may also last longer if they are taken care of properly. Many people with slight vision problems prefer glasses because they can just pull them out for reading then tuck them away for the remainder of the day. In addition, more insurance company’s cover glasses over contact lenses with a better percentage rate of out of pocket expenses.

Glasses may also be more reliable, since contacts can drop, fall-out, rip, or get lost, and you may not be able to see until you get new ones, unless you have a spare pair. This is also why at our Parkchester eyeglass store, we recommend that our customers always have a pair of glasses, even as a back- up, when wearing contacts to correct your vision. Our customers who wear glasses can get the majority of their vision problems corrected by the lens, including double vision, blurred vision and those with astigmatism. You can also always wear your glasses regardless of what problems you may have with your eyes, such as allergy eyes, dry eyes, or infections like pinkeye, where contacts may make those conditions worse.
