Glasses Q & A

Why should I consider getting glasses?

You should schedule a comprehensive eye exam every year to identify early signs of disease and to update existing glasses or contact prescriptions. You should also contact D Vision Eyecare at any time you experience changes in your vision or find it difficult to see clearly up close or far away.

Glasses prescriptions correct refractive errors that cause blurry vision, such as:

  • Myopia (nearsightedness) - good vision up close but blurry distance vision
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness) - good distance vision but blurry vision up close
  • Astigmatism - causes blurry vision due to an irregularly shaped cornea
  • Presbyopia - age-related vision changes that make reading difficult due to poor close up vision

Dr. Ebrahim can determine your prescription-strength need during a refraction assessment.

What’s involved in a refraction assessment for glasses?

To confirm a refractive error, Dr. Ebrahim uses a technique known as retinoscopy, which involves shining a bright light into your eye to assess the movement of light reflecting off your retina through your pupil.

To fine-tune your prescription for glasses, Dr. Ebrahim works with a phoropter device that contains a variety of lenses that you look through to determine which gives you the clearest, sharpest vision. You can expect to answer a series of questions while you read from an eye chart.

How do I choose my lenses and glasses frames?

D Vision Eyecare offers a large selection of fashionable designer frames on-site and can assist you in finding the right frame shape and size to suit your face shape and personal tastes.

You can try on different frames to find your favorite pair, and the staff takes necessary measurements to ensure the frames are right for your prescription strength.
