At Vision Center, the number one Farmingdale optical store, our team of friendly, helpful staff members truly cares about your eye health and vision quality. Because we care so much, we make it a point to emphasize the importance of keeping your optical prescription up to date. Whether you wear contact lenses or prescription eyeglasses, you need to stay on top of your prescription and keep it accurate both for your own health and safety and the health of others.
Think about it: if your optical prescription is inaccurate, should you be driving? You can be putting others at risk by operating a vehicle without your vision being perfectly clear. In fact, you should not be really doing much of anything if your vision is not in tact as it normally is with a proper prescription. In addition, if you are using glasses or contact lenses with an inaccurate prescription, you can potentially damage your eyes and make your vision even worse. Using a prescription that is incorrect makes your eye muscles work harder than they should, causing eye strain. With eye strain often comes headaches and other uncomfortable symptoms. This can easily be avoided by visiting our Farmingdale optical store regularly for a comprehensive eye exam and adjustment of your prescription if necessary. How often you need to visit us for a check on your prescription depends on the individual. For younger patients that are still in school, you should visit us at least once a year as you are likely to have more frequent changes in your prescription. As you grow a bit older, you can usually visit us a little more sparingly, but this must be under the advisement of the experts at our Farmingdale optical store. For patients over the age of 60, the visits should go back to at least once a year, as changes in vision are likely to occur again.
If you are interested in learning more about your eye health and the related services available to you at our Farmingdale optical store, we encourage you to visit the Vision Center website. There you can find additional information about these topics and more. Should you have any questions or concerns that you feel we can help you with, do not hesitate in contacting us either by phone or online. We hope to see you soon at Vision Center.
