Many people live with some sort of vision impairment, and there are many people that use eyeglasses or contact lenses to rectify this issue. Some people are totally fine with either method and enjoy wearing designer lenses or contact lenses, but not everyone is content with relying on these tools. If you are tired of depending on glasses or contacts, then our Kingwood optometrist may be able to provide you with another solution. Here at Today’s Vision, Dr. Jay S. Pravda can provide all eligible patients with LASIK surgery.
Most vision impairment issues are caused by irregularly shaped corneas. The cornea is the lens of the eye. The cornea filters the light that passes through the pupil and is received by the retina which is them processed by the brain. In an eye that has perfect 20/20 vision, the cornea is perfectly dome shaped. Someone who has any kind of vision impairment, however, will have corneas of differing shape. For instance, someone who is near sighted will have corneas that are more conical than usual, making objects in the distance more difficult to see. Alternatively, someone who is farsighted will have corneas that are flatter, making objects in the foreground blurrier and more difficult to see. Other vision impairments will differ slightly, but LASIK attempts to rectify these issues by addressing the shape of the cornea itself. Using laser technology, the cornea is precisely reshaped so that it is closer to its intended form. By reshaping the cornea, you can reduce your reliance on things such as prescription glasses or contact lenses. Here at Today’s Vision, Dr. Pravda can provide you with an expert consultation which will determine whether you are eligible for the surgery. Our Kingwood optometrist will then begin to plan your treatment if you are given the OK to go ahead with the procedure.
If you are tired of wearing glasses or putting in and caring for your contact lenses every day, our Kingwood optometrist can offer you a new option that will eliminate your need for either glasses or contacts. If you want to learn more about LASIK and wish to schedule a consultation with Dr. Pravda, all you have to do is call us here at Today’s Vision today.

Sunglasses are more than just a convenience. Sure, they make us look and feel cool while blocking the sun from our eyes. Not many people are aware of the fact that sunglasses actually protect our eyes just as much as they shade them to provide us with maximum comfort. Here at Today’s Vision, our team of Kingwood optometrists and opticians are here to tell you about the benefits of wearing sunglasses and can help prescribe the perfect pair for you.
The sun doesn’t just make it temporarily difficult for your eyes to see when it happens to be particularly bright outside. Harmful UV rays can damage the eye, no matter what time of year it is. The sun’s rays are just as powerful and harmful to your eyes in winter time as they are in the summer months. Even if the heat from the sun is not as strong, the strength of the sun’s UV rays are strong all year round. UV light can damage multiple aspects of the eye. This damage can cause serious conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, skin cancer of the eyelids and pingueculae. Wearing sunglasses is like wearing sunscreen on your eyes. Prolonged exposure can severely damage your eyes just as much as it can damage your skin. Wearing a pair of sunglasses that are 100% UVA and UVB from our selection here at Today’s Vision can mean a world of difference. You will not only see more easily and comfortably, but you will be ensuring that you do so for years and years to come. Visit our Kingwood optometrist to receive optimal eye care and advice to make sure that your vision and health are in peak condition, and stay that way.
We can help you here at Today’s Vision. Whether you need prescription or non prescription sunglasses we can fit you with the perfect pair of lenses that will fit your fashion sense, suit your face and your lifestyle. Not only that but a pair of sunglasses from our Kingwood optometrist will protect your eyes and provide you with the utmost comfort all year round.
