No matter what your age, regular eye exams are not only necessary to keep optical prescriptions current but a part of complete health maintenance. Up to date optical prescriptions are necessary for everyone who wears glasses, or contacts, in order to function to the best of their abilities. Part of your regular eye exams are also to check for early signs of eye disease and other disorders that can affect your vision. Vision is also closely linked to the learning process so eye exams and up to date optical prescriptions for children are very important since undetected vision problems can affect their schoolwork. If you see that your child is not performing up to standard at school, it would be a good idea to have their eyes examined at our Woodside Queens eyeglass store. The dedicated staff at Lens Lab Express provide outstanding eye care, starting out with comprehensive eye exams for your whole family.
Statistics show that one in five Americans put off having yearly eye exams and our Woodside Queens eyeglass store optometrist, can’t stress enough that without regular eye exams, serious problems that can threaten your eyesight may be missed. Where optical prescriptions are concerned, regular exams are just as important because eyeglass prescriptions can expire anytime within a 2 year period. During a thorough eye exam, our licensed opticians and optometrists perform various tests, from having you read an eye chart, to more complex tests, such as using a high-powered lens to see the tiny configurations inside your eyes.
At our Woodside Queens eyeglass store, we will check for common eye diseases, assess your eyes to see how well they work together and evaluate them as an indicator of your overall health. Nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism will also be checked for since these are common conditions that affect your eyesight. After a comprehensive exam, our optometrists will not only have a current optical prescription for you, but will discuss your results and suggest any necessary treatment options that are best suited to your particular needs.
