Have you noticed that the colors around you seem less vibrant, or that you simply have more trouble distinguishing one shade from one shade to the next than you ever have before?

The only way to insure your eyes are always seeing their very best is with regular optical exams from your local optometrist in Humble at the state of the art practice of Today’s Vision.
Humble Texas Cataract Management
Cataracts are most often known to many of us as a disease which occurs with aging, and thusly is ignored as even a remote possibility for those of us under sixty years of age. However, this illness has many more causes than the simple aging of your eyes. Cataracts can also be caused childhood injury, deformity, or infection, as well as from outside causes throughout your life such as diabetes, the use of diuretics or steroids, exposure to radiation or UV rays from the sun, and even optical injuries. The use of cigarettes and the consumption of alcohol and heavy amounts has also been known to increase the risk of cataracts. Symptoms of cataracts include difficulty seeing due to glare both during the day and at night due to headlights, sudden in changes in your optical prescription, difficulty seeing color, double vision, as well vision that appears in anyway to be cloudy, blurry, or appears to be a film over your eyes. Your professional optometrist in Humble works to treat cataracts with the latest technology through the use of prescription eyeglasses that work to accommodate your new optical correction needs until you become a candidate for surgery. Cataracts must be completely formed until they can be removed. Your doctor works to restore your vision with a type of laser surgery that works to remove the cataract where it has formed on the natural lens of your eye with an artificial lens. This IOL can also be prescribed to your vision needs, so you may never need to wear prescription lenses again to see clearly.

The need for prescription glasses or contact lenses depends on the shape of your cornea. A person with perfect vision has corneas that are perfectly round, or at least near perfect. Any change in shape results in a vision impairment. If your cornea is too rounded, then you may have myopia or nearsightedness. If your cornea is too flat or not rounded enough, then you are farsighted or have hyperopia. Astigmatism is when the shape of the cornea is irregular or asymmetrical. All of these changes in corneal shape affects how light passes through the cornea to the retina located at the back of the eye that registers images. Any distortion of the cornea will affect how light passes through the eye and results in objects at different distances appearing blurry. Glasses and contact lenses purchased from our Humble optical store aim to make up for any difference in the inherent shape of your cornea so light passes through the eye as it is meant to, resulting in clear, crisp vision. Here at Today’s Vision, we can provide you and your family with comprehensive eye exams that will help determine whether glasses or contacts are better for you and your lifestyle. Glasses and contacts refract light differently though they both make up for the lack or excess of curvature in your cornea.
Glasses rest on the bridge of the nose and sit at a small distance from the eye, whereas a contact lens rests directly over the cornea itself. Because of their differing proximity to the eye, glasses and contact lenses require different prescriptions. Each one is designed to give you the best vision. Visit us at Today’s Vision in our Humble optical store today to see which vision correction method is best for you.
