How much do you truly know about your eyesight? Do you understand why you wear glasses or contact lenses to correct your vision? Do you know if you are farsighted or nearsighted? Do you know the warning signs of common eye infections and diseases like keratitis or glaucoma? For the staff at Eye Care Associates of San Bernardino located near Loma Linda, California, they are always surprised to learn how little people truly know about their vision. Many patients of Eye Care Associates of San Bernardino are first time glasses or contact lens wearers, only having recently discovered through an eye examination with our Loma Linda eye doctors that their vision can benefit from corrective eyewear. Whether you enter our optometry practice looking for prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses, our staff of optometrists and opticians want to help you find a style that works with your personality, while also helping you understand why you need glasses in the first place.
Wearing proper prescription glasses from Eye Care Associates of San Bernardino can in fact improve your eyes’ performance, helping you achieve 20/20 vision. Wearing eyeglasses will not make you dependent on them nor will it affect your optical prescription. Some people believe that by wearing corrective lenses all day long their vision will worsen, but in reality your lenses do not make your vision problems go away. Glasses and contact lenses allow you to see comfortably and when you remove them, you’ll see less comfortably. Simply, prescription eyewear corrects the symptoms of less than perfect vision.
