It is important for everyone to take care of their eyes. While there are a number of common conditions that we see on a regular basis, perhaps the most common has to do with refractory issues. Some people might have myopia while other people have been diagnosed with hyperopia. Regardless, it is important for everyone to have their questions answered before settling on a pair of corrective lenses. There are a few common questions that we get regarding eyeglasses. The team from Northwest Eye Specialists is here to make sure that everyone in the Tucson, AZ area has their questions answered.


Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Eyeglasses

Some of the most common questions that we get at Fishkind, Bakewell, Maltzman, Hunter & Associates regarding eyeglasses include:

Why do I need eyeglasses?

People need eyeglasses because the light that enters the visual field is not being focused properly on the retina. In some cases, the light is being focused in front of the retina. In other cases, it ends up behind the retina. This leads to problems with someone's vision. Eyeglasses have corrective lenses that will fix this problem.

Do I need new eyeglasses every year?

Not necessarily. We do encourage all of our patients to have their vision evaluated every year. In some cases, the prescription may change and someone will need new lenses. In this case, we may be able to pop the new lenses into the existing frame.

Do I need to wear eyeglasses forever?

Many people who need corrective lenses end up having them for life; however, some people are candidates for laser eye surgery that may eliminate the need for eyeglasses. Our trained refractive surgeons offer the best LASIK or PRK procedures in Southern Arizona. To learn more about these procedures provided, click here.

How do I take care of my eyeglasses?

It is important to keep the lenses clean so that nothing obstructs the visual field. When the glasses aren't being worn, it is also important to store them in a protective case. This will prevent the glasses from being broken or lost.
