When you make a decision about your eyewear, you are making a statement about who you are. Your decision affects your vision. Glasses, if picked appropriately, can improve your best facial features, while hiding your less desirable features.

As we reach middle age, particularly after age 40, it is common to start to experience difficulty with reading and performing other tasks that require near vision. This is because, with age, the lens of our eye becomes increasingly inflexible, making it harder to focus on close objects. This condition is called presbyopia and eventually, it happens to everyone who reaches old age to some extent. Our Gilbert Arizona optometrist, Dr. Woolf, has extensive experience fitting patients with the latest multifocal contact lenses for presbyopia. If you are considering purchasing a new pair of reading glasses, schedule a contact lens fitting and discuss the option with our friendly and caring eye doctor. 

According to experts, 80% of learning is visual, which means that if your child is having difficulty seeing clearly, his or her learning can be affected. This also goes for infants who develop and learn about the world around them through their sense of sight. To ensure that your children have the visual resources they need to grow and develop normally, their eyes and vision should be checked by an eye doctor at certain stages of their development.

According to the American Optometric Association, children should have eye exams following the recommendations below. 

  • At 6 months of age
  • At 3 years of age 
  • Before entering first grade (6 years old) 
  • A yearly eye exam if they need glasses 
  • A bi-annual eye exam if they do not need glasses

One of the questions our Gilbert Optometrist receives is, "If my child does not need glasses, why do they need an eye exam?" 

Our optometrist, Dr. Woolf explains "A comprehensive eye exam is like a physical that assesses all aspects of your eye health and performance. A child may pass a vision screening and may not even need glasses, however, they may have a visual issue that affects their reading or ability to learn. In addition, a child may not need eyeglasses, however, they may show early signs of myopia (nearsightedness/shortsightedness), which while not impacting their current need for glasses, is crucial to address with myopia control, in order to reduce risks of eye disease as they age. Lastly, an eye exam also covers preventative aspects of eye health such as protection from UV, protection from blue light, and preventing computer vision syndrome. "
