Do you depend on bifocal or multifocal lenses in order to see clearly throughout the day? Many of the customers that visit our Houston eyeglass store, West U Vision, are looking for a solution to their symptoms of presbyopia. Presbyopia is a vision condition that typically begins to develop around the age of forty or so. Many patients then use bifocals in order to aid in their ability to see at varying distances with the vision impairment from their presbyopia. The problem with bifocals is that the separate zones within the lenses make it so that the patient has to look through a certain area of the lens in order to see objects at varying distances clearly. This leads to a phenomenon known as “image jump,” which can be disorienting and hard on the eyes.

At our Houston eyeglass store, we have helped many of our customers mitigate this problem with the use of progressive lenses instead. Progressive lenses eliminate the “image jump” by creating a full range of vision from the top of the lens to the bottom. The separated zones of bifocals become seamless in specially crafted progressive lenses. In turn, using your glasses has a much more natural feeling, and will leave you feeling much more comfortable throughout your day, eliminating eye strain and the other annoyances associated with bifocal lenses. If progressive lenses sound like an appealing option to you, simply come in for a visit to our Houston eyeglass store, and we can get started in making your glasses work better for you.

If you would like to learn more about progressive lenses or any of the other many helpful optical products and services available to you at our Houston eyeglass store, we encourage you to visit the main West U Vision website to find some additional information. You might also choose to contact our staff directly if you would like to learn more about a specific product or service, or if you have any questions or concerns that we can help you with. Feel free to contact us either by phone or online for assistance. We look forward to your next visit with us at West U Vision.

Macular degeneration is an eye condition that causes vision loss. When you know the causes and symptoms of macular degeneration, you will be able to identify any signs early and seek evaluation and treatment from our Houston eye doctors, Christine Castillo, OD and MH Rockoff, OD. And early detection and treatment is the very best strategy to address any eye disease or problem. At West U Vision, our goal is to keep you seeing as well as possible all the time.

While the exact causes of macular degeneration are not known, there is a good chance that heredity plays a role. A pattern of running in families has been observed. Environment may also play a part in causing it, though no proof is currently available to support that theory. While the causes of macular degeneration may not be well understood, there are identifiable risk factors. The most prominent one is age. There is a tendency for macular degeneration to be more likely as you get older. Also, having lighter skin color and lighter eye color increases the likelihood of getting it. Women have higher risk than men do. Other risks include obesity, smoking, too much exposure to sunlight, sleep apnea, and taking certain medications. Our Houston eye doctors, as part of a comprehensive eye exam, will ask you about your heredity and discuss those concerns that might increase your risk of macular degeneration.

Among the symptoms that are associated with macular degeneration are blurred vision, loss of vision either near of far even if only in one eye, blind spots, seeing objects differently colored in one eye versus the other or differently sized in each eye, or seeing straight lines as being bent. The presence of any of those signs does not mean you should panic, but you should most definitely call us to schedule an appointment with our Houston eye doctors as soon as possible. With a thorough checkup, it can be determined if you are dealing with macular degeneration or not. If so, while macular degeneration cannot be cured or reversed, there are ways to ensure that it does not prevent you from living your life to the fullest.

20/20 vision indicates the sharpness or clarity of vision.  There are other important vision skills, including peripheral awareness or side vision, eye coordination, depth perception, focusing ability and color vision that contribute to your overall visual ability.  Our West Univeristy eye care center will test your vision for these eye regularities.  Some people can see well at a distance, while closer objects are blurry.  This condition can be caused by hyperopia, or farsightedness, this may also be referred to as presbyopia or loss of focusing ability.

Myopia or nearsightedness refers to those people who can see close objects, but their vision is blurry with objects further away.  Our West University vision care includes eye exams by our optometrists who will diagnose the causes, if any, that are affecting your ability to see well.  Our West University optometrist can prescribe glasses, contact lenses or a vision therapy program that will help improve your vision.  If the reduced vision is due to an eye disease we will refer you to the best eye specialists in our Houston area.
