Humble Prescription Eyeglasses

A prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses is good for only as long as it’s giving you maximum visual improvement. Exactly how long that is will depend, because everyone’s eyes and vision change at different rates. What we know for sure is that over time, your visual needs will evolve and your prescription will need to keep up. At Today’s Vision, we want you to be aware of the symptoms that indicate you need a new prescription and encourage you to call us for an examination at our Humble eyeglass store when you are experiencing one or more of them.

Some of the symptoms of needing a new prescription will mirror the symptoms that made you seek out your eyeglasses or contacts in the first place. This is to say that as your prescription becomes less effective, the same issues will begin to resurface. So, if you are nearsighted then you might discover that you are suffering with headaches due to eyestrain or blurred vision when trying to focus on objects in the distance. Or perhaps you are having difficulties with driving at night. If you are farsighted, then you could be finding it hard to read or work at your computer. These symptoms are occurring because your contacts or eyeglasses have become insufficient for your current level of vision correction. But it can also be as simple as realizing that you are not seeing with the same clarity that you were getting when your prescription for corrective lenses was first filled. If you notice any of the above signs, call us and schedule an eye exam at our Humble eyeglass store.

In order to determine what your new prescription will be, our eye doctor, Jay S. Pravda, O.D., will test your visual acuity the same as in any complete eye exam. As a matter of fact, the very best way to stay on top of your lens prescription is to be sure and have an eye exam at our Humble eyeglass store every year. In addition to ensuring that your contacts or eyeglasses are current, a yearly eye exam also lets you be screened for common eye diseases, most of which do not have symptoms in their early stages.

Humble Pediatric Eye Doctor

Family Optometrist in Humble

At Today’s Vision, our Humble pediatric eye doctor and the rest of our staff are equipped and experienced to treat a wide range of eye conditions. One of the most common is a condition called strabismus. Strabismus can also be referred to as crossed eyes, deviation, squint, tropia, and heterotropia. It is a condition in which both of your eyes are unable to look at the same object at the same time. They are unable to do this because the six muscles that surround the eyes are not working together as they should be, and as a result one eye looks in one direction and the other eye looks in another direction. When they eyes are both trying to focus on two objects, two images are then sent to the brain, which confuses the brain. The brain typically trains itself to ignore the image being sent from the weaker eye, which can do serious long-term damage to the vision from that eye.

Our Humble pediatric eye doctor most often sees strabismus in children. It can occur in adults on occasion as well, but it typically is part of the child’s development. If you are concerned about strabismus in your child, you should be aware of certain symptoms to look out for. The main, most obvious symptom is if your child’s eyes appear to be looking in two different directions. You may also notice that your child tends to squint one eye in sunlight, or appears to have poor depth perception. You should bring your child to visit our Humble pediatric eye doctor for regular eye exams, and especially if you think there may be a condition like strabismus developing. During the examination, our Humble pediatric eye doctor will perform a series of tests in order to evaluate how your child’s eyes are functioning together. If a diagnosis of strabismus is confirmed, we will then discuss treatment, which may include eyeglasses, eye patches, surgery, and other options.
