  2. Hyperopia: far-sightedness, or the inability to see things at close distances
  3. Eyeglass prescription changes occur every 1 to 2 years
  4. Presbyopia: the inability to see things at near after the age of 40 years
  5. Contact lens wearers are at greater risk of eye infections and corneal ulcers

The human eye is an amazing organ that most of us rely on every waking moment of the day. From morning till night, our vision allows us to see beautiful Florida sunsets, our beloved family and much more. Here at 20/20 Eyeglass Superstore, our main goal is to keep you up-to-date on everything related to eye care and eye health.

Are you due to visit the optometrist?

doctor-visitAre you due to visit the optometrist? Even if you don’t wear glasses and your eyes are feeling fine, we’re here to share several reasons why you should get your eyes tested on a regular basis.

Visiting your local optometrist allows doctors to look directly at your blood vessels which can reveal early warning signs of serious health problems such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease and diabetes before the symptoms show up anywhere else in the body.

Depending on your health and age, you should also visit the optometrist to make sure you are above driving standards. Sometimes people won’t even realize they have blurred vision as deterioration tends to happen quite slowly over time. Driving standards are very strict and you might be driving illegally without even knowing it! If you were involved in a car accident and your vision was found to be below the legal standard, your insurance might be void. This is a worst case scenario but it’s better to be safe than sorry!

A visit to the optometrist can also let you know if you have a lazy eye. This is especially important for children, so if you are a parent or guardian, make sure you take your kids in for regular eye exams. Check out our post on Top 5 Tips on Choosing Children’s Eyeglasses for more information on bring your kids to the optometrist.

Certain eye diseases such as Glaucoma show no symptoms and most people are unaware of it until it’s too late. Regular visits to your optometrist can easily pick up eye diseases such as these to ensure your vision is protected.

Do you suffer from regular headaches and wonder what the cause is? You should visit your optometrist! A large percentage of headaches are caused by visual problems and most general practitioners will recommend you get your eyes tested to see if that is the problem.

We hope this article has inspired you to visit your local optometrist. Your vision is priceless and a thirty minute appointment once a year is certainly something you should be able to commit too. Getting your eyes tested regularly will help you stay on top of your general health, eye diseases and even headaches!

Eyeglasses For Your Children

iStock_000020074017XSmall-270x300According to Parenting.com, approximately one in twenty preschoolers wear eyeglasses. This is an important statistic to consider if you haven’t taken your child to get his or her eyes checked. If you find out your little bundle of joy needs corrective lenses, here’s how to choose the best frames:

1. Choose eyeglasses that flatter your child’s face. Most children have round faces which means a squarish style will look best. You should also choose smaller frames.

2. Pick frames that are flexible for your child. We know bright, colorful, plastic frames are all the rage for 2013 but they can be brittle and break easily. Metal frames are easier to adjust and you should look for eyeglasses with titanium hinges that will bend easily with your children’s movements.

3. Pick frames that are impact-resistant such as polycarbonate lenses. We all remember gym class, make sure your child’s eyeglasses will stand the “ball in the face” test. Another way to protect your child’s lenses is to add an antireflective coating.

The best way to choose eyeglasses for your children is to include them in the process. Personally, my daughter needed to start wearing eyeglasses when she was six years old. I was very worried that she wouldn’t want to wear eyeglasses, but, surprisingly, she was very excited to purchase her new frames! She started a trend in her school and all the kids begged their parents to purchase frames, even if they didn’t need a prescription!

If you’re on the market for new eyeglasses for your children, we hope you’ll consider 20/20 Eyeglass Superstore. You’re welcome to bring your little one into any of our locations and try on as many pairs as you like. We look forward to seeing you soon.

We have exciting prizes for you so hurry up!! Drop in at any of our 20/20 Eyeglass Superstores to try on our latest styles and earn a spin on the prize wheel.
