Better vision is something everyone wants, and at Focus Vision Care, our eyeglasses in Staten Island provide the vision correction necessary to make that possible. For nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, our optometrist determines the necessary prescription and then our optical department creates the lenses. So, how exactly do eyeglasses work to correct your vision?
When your eyes take in light, the cornea is the first part of the eye to receive it, then transmitting that light to the retina at the back. This is the basic premise for how we see. If your cornea is shaped properly, the retina receives the light from the cornea right at its center, or very close to it. However, when your cornea is misshapen, the light is either directed closer to the front or back of your retina, or is refracted unevenly. The result is that your vision is less than idea up close, far away, or at all distances. Our eyeglasses in Staten Island alter the angle at which light travels into your eyes, correcting it so that it reaches your retina more toward the center. Some prescriptions move the focus further back, while others move it forward. To accomplish this, our optical department makes your lenses either thicker in the middle and thinner on the edges, or thinner in the middle and thicker on the edges. That is the basic science behind our eyeglasses in Staten Island. No matter what fantastic designer frames you choose to go around your eyeglass lenses, the way that your vision is improved does not change.
All you have to do is contact our office to arrange a visit to have an eye exam performed by our optometrist, who will then write out the prescription that will result in your new eyeglasses giving you sharper and clearer vision.
