Your eyes are valuable and at Fabulous Optical, we want to help you keep them healthy, strong, and seeing as well as possible for a long time to come. The best way to accomplish that is with a comprehensive eye exam once every year. Our Jamaica optometrist will check your vision thoroughly to see if you need corrective lenses. If you already do wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, it is important to ensure that your current prescription is still effective. Your vision continues to change over time. The second part of your exam is about screening you for common eye diseases. You may not be aware of this, but most eye diseases develop and even progress without any symptoms to alert you to their presence. Since the most effective treatments and best outcomes for any disease are associated with early detection, it is easy to see the benefits of coming for your recommended exam every year.
Nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia are all vision concerns that will be detected as part of your exam. They’re all common and easily treatable with eyeglasses or contact lenses. Sometimes, it is easy to go through your day to day life and not think about why you’re squinting when you try to see the menu behind the counter at the coffee shop or why you’re getting headaches working at the computer. But there is no need to suffer or to endure less than the best vision you are capable of having. Our Jamaica optometrist will perform standard tests to determine how well you’re seeing up close and at a distance. If any concerns are diagnosed, you will be able to have your prescription filled right here. We have a wide variety of frames from which you can pick, something for every taste and every budget.
