What can the eye
If you have trouble focusing on distance, like subtitles in the cinema or faces in the street, you could be short-sighted. That can easily be corrected with the correct dioptre!
If seeing in the distance is no problem, but you struggle to make out text or objects close to you, you most likely suffer from long-sightedness. Glasses can help you with this condition too.
Often manifests itself as slightly cloudy vision or the sensation of seeing “ghosts“. The good news is that glasses can easily compensate for astigmatism. You have to wear them though.
With onset usually, after you are 40, you recognize it when you find it harder to focus on a text or a close-up object. You might often feel like your hands are just too short. Don’t worry though! Even presbyopia can be treated with a well-chosen dioptre.
How to prepare for
If you wear glasses, bring them to the examination. They will be useful for comparing your dioptres.
If you wear contact lenses, please remove them at least 4 hours before the examination. Their use before the tests can affect the results of the measurements which is something we need to avoid.
What is the difference
between an ophthalmologist
and an optometrist examination?
While both deal with our eyes, each of them is an expert on something else.
The accurate correction of sight and its functionality is the domain of optometrists.
These specialists correct your sight based on exact measurements in order to help you see better. If our optometrist finds a more serious issue in your eyes, they will refer you without hesitation to an ophthalmologist. Optometrists can legally examine the eyesight of people above the age of 16. Underage people can only be treated by an ophthalmologist.
Ophthalmologists treat the eye as a whole – they help with all the problems associated with the anatomy or pathology of the eye and ensure it is healthy.
