Is it really necessary to get annual eye exams? Well, at EyeCare Associates of San Bernardino, our answer is a resounding yes. There are two very good reasons why you should have your eyes checked by our optometrist in Rialto once every year. First, whether you currently wear eyeglasses and contacts or you’ve never worn either before, your vision undergoes continual change. What was true a year ago can easily be different now. We don’t want you to have to settle for just adequate eyesight when you can have the best vision possible.
The second reason is that as part of our exams, our optometrist in Rialto will screen you for the most common eye diseases. This may not seem like that big a deal, especially if you have no symptoms. But the thing is that cataracts, glaucoma, which can affect anyone at any age, along with other eye conditions, have no obvious signs during their early stages. That means you could have an eye disease that is progressing and you wouldn’t be aware of it until you began to experience a loss of vision or damage to your eyes, either of which might not be reversible. Early detection is linked to the best outcomes with all diseases, including those of the eyes. Macular degeneration is a disease that typically occurs in people age 40 and older, while diabetic retinopathy is applicable to those who have type one or type two diabetes. Of course, you will be screened for those diseases for which you are prone.
There are some indications that you might need new or updated glasses or contacts, such as having blurred vision, having to squint to see things, and headaches that are caused by eye strain. But even if you are not experiencing any of these signs, optimal vision can have a positive impact on your life, making it easier for you to do all the things that are part of your daily routine, including using the computer, reading, and driving. Our optometrist in Rialto will perform a series of tests to gauge your level of vision up close, at a distance, in-between, and side-to-side. Bring in your current prescription lenses if you have them. You will be tested with and without. Call us today and schedule your annual eye exam.

Contact lenses are a wonderful alternative to wearing prescription eyeglasses because they do not obstruct your vision in any way, and they do not cover up your face in any way either. They are relatively easy to maintain and come in a variety of brands and options. There are two main types of contact lenses that we provide at EyeCare Associates of San Bernadino, and our Rialto eye doctor will help you pick the ones that are best for you. The main separation is between soft contact lenses and hard contact lenses, also known as gas permeable contact lenses. Most patients elect to use soft contact lenses because of their comfort and ease of wear.
Rialto Eye Care
At EyeCare Associates of San Bernadino, we have all types and brands of soft contact lenses. We have soft contact lenses that you can wear overnight, that are for daily wear, that are disposable, that are for extended wear, and even color changing soft contact lenses that those without a prescription can use as well. Hard contact lenses are different from soft contact lenses because they provide sharper vision, but are not as comfortable to wear. Hard contact lenses are typically only used for patients with severe or very advanced refractive errors that are not sufficiently accommodated by soft contact lenses. If you’re not sure which type of contact lens would be best for your eye care needs, simply stop in and speak with our Rialto eye doctor.
If you are interested in switching to contact lenses from prescription eyeglasses, you should come in for an examination and consultation with our Rialto eye doctor at EyeCare Associates of San Bernadino. To learn more about the products and services that we offer our customers, we invite you to browse through our website and to get in touch with us if you have any specific questions or concerns.

Parents who take an active role in their child’s health can help prevent many health conditions, including amblyopia. The San Bernardino optometrists at Eye Care Associates of San Bernardino insist that parents are key to proper and timely diagnosis of vision problems in children. Parents know their children best and are more likely to notice anything unusual about their child’s eye health in a more timely manner. If you notice your child doing any of the following, they may have a vision problem: Sitting too close to the television, holding object unnaturally close, squinting, tilting their head to see better, persistent redness or excessive tearing, or having the appearance of crossed eyes. All of these are warning signs that your child needs to visit the pediatric optometrists at Eye Care Associates of San Bernardino. There, they can be tested for vision problems by your local Colton children’s eye doctor. Early detection and appropriate treatment of vision problems can make a tremendous difference in your child’s life.
