Vision Source - Ardmore FAQ
What should I consider when choosing a frame for my glasses?
When choosing a frame, the shape and size of the frame should enhance the color of your eyes, complement your skin tone and play up the best features of your overall face shape. For example, to help soften angular facial lines of a long, narrow face try a round or oval frame. For someone with a larger forehead, full cheeks, or rounded chin, try sharpening your features by wearing rectangular, aviator-style, square or geometric shaped frames.
What is LASIK surgery?
A flap is surgically cut in the cornea and gently folded back. An Excimer Laser is used to reshape the cornea into a flatter shape (this is much like a contact lens corrects vision by forming a new shape on the cornea). The flap is then put back in place, acting like a natural bandage. The healing process is quick and the discomfort level is quite low.
LASIK is not for everyone. People's eyes are different so even though you may have had a friend who has had LASIK, it may not be the best course of treatment for you. If you are interested in laser vision correction, Vision Source will be happy to guide you through the process.
What is astigmatism?
Astigmatism is an uneven or irregular curvature of the cornea or lens, causing blurred or distorted vision – such as letters or shapes appearing to be compressed, stretched, or tilted. It is treated with corrective lenses or surgery.
Are there available options for people with low vision?
Yes. Low Vision therapy typically includes evaluation of visual abilities, prescription of low vision devices and training in their use. The goal of low vision therapy is to give patients the maximum use of their available vision for reading, writing, hobbies and work-related tasks, such as working at a computer.
