Staten Island reading glasses

Many people need to get reading glasses as they get older. When people are experiencing problems seeing things that are close up, they come to our vision practice, The Vision Gallery, Ltd. to purchase Staten Island reading glasses.

Today, there are many different ways that people can obtain reading glasses. If you are simply purchasing reading glasses at our office as separate glasses, you do not need to have a prescription. Our optician will be able to work with you to make sure that you get the reading glasses that are just the right strength to allow you to enjoy optimal up-close vision, without experiencing eyestrain. There are also many different options for patients who want to get Staten Island reading glasses. Our optometrist will be able to write a lens prescription for you so that you can get eyeglasses with progressive lenses. Progressive lenses are lenses which can contain two or even three different types of distance prescriptions. Progressive lenses have no lines of delineation between the lens Strains, so they are extremely attractive for people to wear. Additionally, for those people who do not want others to know that they are wearing reading glasses because they feel it gives away their age, they can receive this type of vision correction totally discreetly. People also enjoy wearing progressive lenses because it actually increases the field of vision since there are no areas on the reading glasses which will interfere with your clear vision. Reading glasses can also be bifocals which contain a bifocal reading area as well as a distance area. When the reading glasses are contained within eyeglasses, it is very important that you get the right prescription so that you will be able to see well at all distances. Our optometrist is an expert at providing these types of vision prescriptions for either bifocal or progressive lenses.

When you need to get a new pair of Staten Island reading glasses, we hope you will come to our vision practice, the Vision Gallery, Ltd., where we can accommodate all of your eye care needs.

Staten Island sunglasses

Sunglasses are great for summer, but they’re not only for the warm weather. With the harsh winds of winter and the glare off of snow and ice, our Staten Island sunglasses are just as useful then as they are right now. Plus, the dangerous UV rays of the sun don’t go away after the summer months. Here at The Vision Gallery, Ltd., we feature an impressive selection of sunglasses. And whether you want non-prescription or prescription, we will find the ideal pair to suit you.

If you do require vision correction and have a current prescription, stop on in and we’ll add them to our Staten Island sunglasses that you select. If, however, it’s been over a year since your last eye exam, then call us in advance and schedule one with our eye doctor. Your vision needs are in a continual state of evolution, and an eye exam ensures that we provide you with the very best prescription for how you’re seeing right now. The bottom line, though, is that you can have one pair of glasses that gives you the required vision correction as well as protecting you from the sun. Of course, if you don’t need a prescription to correct your vision, and you simply want sunglasses for their practical and cosmetic qualities, that’s even simpler. And because all of our sunglasses, both prescription and non-prescription, block out 100% of not only UVA but also UVB sun rays, you can feel confident knowing that your eyes are being kept from harm.

There are numerous good reasons for having our Staten Island sunglasses. When driving, at the beach, skiing, skating, or participating in virtually any outdoor activity, any time of the year, they are the perfect companion. And prescription sunglasses give you the added plus of not having to carry two sets of glasses, nor having to choose between sharp vision and protection from the sun and its effects. You’ll find the brands you recognize and trust for their commitment to craftsmanship and the height of fashion, with something for every taste, skin tone, facial shape, and budget.

Macular Degeneration in Staten Island

Staten Island Vision Expert

Staten Island Vision Expert

Many people think there is no reason to visit the eye doctor if they do not having trouble seeing or are not experiencing specific symptoms warranting concern, but that is simply not the case. While you should always visit our Staten Island vision expert if you are experiencing symptoms, annual eye exams are just as important even if you are not having specific symptoms at the time. The reasoning behind this idea is that many of the most common and potentially dangerous eye and retina conditions develop in a manner so gradual and slow that many people are completely unaware of there being a problem until the disease is advanced enough to have done significant damage to the eyes and vision. At The Vision Gallery, Ltd., we’re here to make sure that does not happen.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in people over 50 years of age in the United States. AMD is caused by the breakdown of the central portion of the retina, called the macula, which is the highly sensitive part of your eye responsible for detailed central vision that is used for reading fine print, recognizing faces, and driving your car. Macular degeneration symptoms may be rapid and severe, while some may not notice any visual changes at all. Although symptoms can worsen quality of life by making reading, driving, and facial recognition difficult. It is imperative for patients with age-related macular degeneration to receive periodic eye exams, because once macular degeneration has developed in one eye, even if there is no vision loss, the other eye is at a relatively high risk. When our Staten Island vision expert examines your eyes, he will be able to offer you the latest diagnostic services to accurately and efficiently diagnose and evaluate your retinal condition. Each patient will be evaluated with a refraction slit lamp, intraocular pressure, and a retinal exam using digital retinal imaging. This includes digital fundus (retinal) photography, fluorescein angiography, digital high-speed indocyanine green (ICG) angiography, optical coherence tomography (OCT), as well as b-scan ultrasonography. Personalized to you, no two eye examinations or eyewear prescriptions are the same. Our optometrists will consider your stage of life and take the time to learn about your goals, lifestyle, general health, and eyewear needs and preferences. Each of these elements impacts your eye health.

Once your retinal exam is completed, our eye doctor will be able to give you an updated prescription and any recommendations for treatments or at-home care as needed. At The Vision Gallery, Ltd., when it comes to your eye health, we look at the big picture. But we never lose sight of you in it. Please call our office or consult our website for further information regarding retina care, or to schedule an appointment with our Staten Island vision expert for your macular degeneration screening.

Oakwood Farsightedness

Oakwood Farsightedness

Oakwood Farsightedness

We believe that educating our patients is vital in keeping their eyes healthy. At The Vision Gallery, Ltd., we provide total eye care, which includes exams, diagnosis, and treatment of disease with medicine or surgery. You should always visit your eye specialist whenever you notice significant change in vision. Conducting comprehensive exams accurately detects eye diseases or other abnormalities early, often before symptoms are present. Oakwood farsightedness, for example, is just one of the many conditions that your eye exam can confirm.

Most people who have a vision problem are either myopic (nearsighted) or hyperopic (farsighted). Vision tests from our eye doctor will confirm this. Your comprehensive exam will also test visual acuity, eye tracking and focusing skills, as well as detect problems such as amblyopia, crossed eyes, dyslexia, and color blindness. Most of the time, the only treatment required for Oakwood farsightedness is with corrective, prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, there are various surgical procedures for correcting or adjusting your eye’s focusing ability, and this is primarily done by reshaping the cornea. If you have a refractive error, such as farsightedness, and if you want to decrease your dependence on glasses or contact lenses and are free of eye disease, then corneal refractive surgery may be for you. Refractive eye surgery is a method for correcting or improving your vision. The most widely performed type of refractive surgery is LASIK, where a laser is used to reshape the cornea. Thanks to our office’s state-of-the-art technology, we can correct your vision with the precision and ease of lasers. For farsighted people, laser eye surgery will be used to achieve a steeper cornea which will increase the eye’s focusing power. Laser eye surgery will help focus the image clearly, vastly improving your vision. It is best to speak with our eye doctors to determine your exact individual needs while considering treatment for your farsightedness.

It is our mission to preserve, restore, and enhance your eye health. Our comprehensive eye exams and vision testing services are one of the best ways to ensure proper eye health. Please call our office or consult our website for further information regarding eye care, or to schedule an appointment with our optometrist. So even if your vision is blurry, it is clear where you should go for your Oakwood farsightedness treatment; call The Vision Gallery, Ltd. today to schedule an appointment.

If you cannot remember the last time you had a comprehensive eye exam, you probably should make an appointment to be seen by our eye doctor. Yearly eye exams are very important because there are eye diseases that show no signs in the early stages. However, this does not mean that they are not present in your eyes and causing you damage without your even knowing it. One such disease is glaucoma. Glaucoma shows no symptoms in the early stages, however, glaucoma can be causing irreversible vision damage without your even knowing it. The good news is that if glaucoma is diagnosed early, during a comprehensive eye exam, our eye doctor will be able to provide you with treatment that will keep the glaucoma from advancing.

Many of our customers enjoy getting progressive lenses for their eyeglasses so that others cannot see that their eyeglasses are actually bifocal readers as well.

Our optometrist is happy to provide patients with comprehensive eye exams or contact lens exams and fittings. In both exams your eyes will be checked for visual acuity, and your best lens prescription will be determined. Your eyes will also be thoroughly examined to make sure you do not have any eye diseases or disorders including: cataracts; macular degeneration; glaucoma; diabetic retinopathy; retinal tears; dry eyes; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina.

Eye Exam in Midland Beach

Midland Beach Optometrist

Midland Beach Optometrist

Can you remember the last time you had a comprehensive eye exam? A comprehensive eye exam is one that not only checks your vision for any refractive problems but it also checks your eyes for any possible eye diseases or disorders. Eye exams are very important for eye disease prevention, and to keep your eyes free from vision loss. If you think you are due for a comprehensive eye exam, or are experiencing vision problems, we hope you will come and see our Midland Beach optometrist at our eye care practice, The Vision Gallery, Ltd.

James Campbell is the owner and optician at The Vision Gallery, Ltd. Karen Haber is another gifted optician at our optical practice. Dr. Jennifer Haber is our Midland Beach optometrist who provides comprehensive eye exams. During the first part of our eye exams your eyes will be examined for any refractive problems. If it is determined that you are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism, our optometrist will be able to write an eyeglass prescription for you that will restore your vision so that it is crisp and clear once again. If you prefer to get contact lenses our optometrist will also be able to provide a contact lens exam and fitting for you. Whichever exam you have, your eyes will be thoroughly examined for any eye diseases.

The second part of our comprehensive eye exam will be performed to see if your eyes have any diseases or disorders. Our Midland Beach optometrist will examine your eyes to make sure they don’t have any signs of these diseases: diabetic retinopathy; cataracts; glaucoma; macular degeneration; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. It is extremely important that this exam is performed because many serious eye diseases do not show any symptoms in the early stages. A person can actually have glaucoma and not even know that they have it. People oftentimes believe that they will know if they need to see an eye doctor due to a vision problem — but serious eye problems can exist without the patient even knowing it. If glaucoma is left to go on undetected it can cause permanent vision damage and eventually blindness. However, if glaucoma is detected in the early stages by our eye doctor, it will be able to be treated and your full vision will be saved. If you would like an appointment to see our optometrist simply contact our office.

Farsightedness treatment in Oakwood

Oakwood NY eye doctor

Oakwood NY eye doctor

Many people who have vision conditions suffer from either nearsightedness or farsightedness. Farsightedness, also known as hyperopia, is an eye condition in which the patient can see distant, far away objects clearly, but not close up. Objects closer to the person’s field of vision may be blurry. Our Oakwood NY eye doctor at The Vision Gallery, Ltd. will discuss the best treatment options for you during a comprehensive eye exam.

The extent of farsightedness that each person suffers depends on the individual. Usually, it is gauged by the ability to focus. If the farsightedness is severe, the individual may see close objects less clearly than distant ones. If the condition is merely mild, the individual may see close objects more clearly. The condition tends to be genetic and runs in families. Most people who suffer from it have had it since birth, although this isn’t always the case. An individual can find their eyes have slowly gotten worse over time, and they may need vision correction where once they did not need it. The condition is very easily corrected with prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. Diagnosis and treatment for this problem is fairly straightforward. Our Oakwood NY eye doctor will perform a comprehensive vision exam, at which point the eyes will be tested as well as for conditions such as glaucoma, and the cornea examined. Should farsightedness be present, we will then create a prescription for eyeglasses and/or contact lenses.

At The Vision Gallery, Ltd. we carry a wide range of designer frames and sunglasses so that our patients can find something that fits their lifestyle. Wearing glasses is a unique and personal process, because everyone has their own style. Our professional consultants can help you find something that fits you, and if you’re looking for something our Oakwood NY eye doctor offices doesn’t carry, we’ll order it for you and have it at our offices within the week. We also carry a full line of brand name contact lenses for those who wish to wear them in conjunction with their glasses, or in place of them. Ask our optometrist for the right fit and go home today with a new pair.

Midland Beach Reading Glasses

Getting the right eyeglass prescription

Midland Beach reading glasses

Midland Beach reading glasses

After age 40 it is very common for people to need reading glasses. With age the lens inside the eye has problems adjusting to near vision. As a result, people end up needing extra help seeing close up. You may find that you are holding reading materials farther away in order to see them clearly. People begin to joke that they cannot see clearly because their arms are too short. If you have experienced this, it is likely that you now need reading glasses to read books, do close-up work, or to work on the computer. Getting the right prescription for bifocals takes an excellent optometrist; building great bifocal glasses calls for an experienced optician. When you want to get top-notch Midland Beach reading glasses, come to see us at The Vision Gallery, Ltd.

The Vision Gallery, Ltd. is owned by our optician, James Campbell. Our second talented optician is Karen Haber. Our highly-trained optometrist is Jennifer Haber. When you come to us for bifocal glasses you will be using the services of our eye doctor and optician. Midland Beach reading glasses can be purchased without a prescription. Not only do we provide comprehensive eye exams, and contact lens exams and fittings, but we also offer a large selection of eyewear. We also have a progressive lens specialist on staff who will be able to help you get a great new pair of eyeglasses that contain reading and correction lens in one seamless progressive lens. Regular bifocal lenses will have a small section in the lower part of the lens that can be used for reading. These glasses are not as attractive, nor do they provide the ease of vision that progressive lenses offer. Progressive lenses have two or even three prescriptions in them, and they do not have any lines to interfere with the patient’s vision.

Some people are not thrilled when they realize they need Midland Beach reading glasses because it indicates they are getting older. This is the basis for many jokes surrounding the use of reading glasses. With progressive lenses, no one is able to tell that you are actually using reading glasses as they are seamlessly built into the other corrective lens. Presbyopia is the name for the condition of not being able to see close-up. Even if you have never had to wear corrective lenses, chances are great that you will need reading glasses at some point in your life. Our optometrist will not only be able to write a prescription for bifocal progressive lenses – she will be able to write a prescription for bifocal contact lenses. If you would like to see our optometrist regarding bifocal or progressive eyeglasses, contact us today.
