6 ways to tell if you need computer glasses

If you experience one or more of the following symptoms, please make an appointment for an eye exam:

√ Tired eyes or headaches at the end of the day

√ Blurry computer screen

√ Red eyes by the end of the workday

√ Your vision is blurry when driving home from work versus driving to work in the morning.

√ Eyes feel sandy, gritty, sting, or water a lot when staring at the computer or reading documents

√ The computer is more clear when you raise your chin, resulting in neck pain

The above symptoms are from tiring your eyes out from constant computer work. Evolutionarily, we were not made to stare at a computer screen for hours on end.

Wearing computer glasses when you work can help your eyes relax. Dr. Kwak can perform an eye exam for you and decide whether glasses when you are at work will take away those annoying symptoms!

Contact Lens Exams

It is important to receive a yearly contact lens exam. California Law requires contact lens prescriptions to expire in 1 year. We have a variety of contact lens options for you. We typically can give you a pair of contact lenses with your exam that day, and if it is a specialty contact lens, we can order it for you. We carry the most up-to-date contact lenses that have high oxygen breathability for your eyes and moistness for comfort. Come on in and ask Dr. Kwak today!

Eye Dilation

The purpose of dilating our eyes is to look further in to the back of the eye where the blood vessels, nerves, and retina are. It is a more thorough health exam that is typically required/recommended by primary care providers for diabetic patients. We are able to detect many more eye diseases with this extra procedure. It is recommended to receive an eye dilation yearly by the Board of Optometry. There are some precautions prior and after this procedure, so discuss with Dr. Kwak prior to deciding if you’d like this procedure performed on your eyes.

Health Screenings

Sometimes, changes can be seen in your eyes due to undetected high blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes. We also do glaucoma and cataract screenings. Many eye diseases go undetected because patients don’t notice any symptoms, so please come in for your yearly eye exam to maintain and monitor your eye health.

Eye Infections

Dr. Kwak is able to treat red eyes due to overwear of contact lenses, eye infections, or small foreign bodies entering the eye. She can treat many red eyes by prescribing antibiotic drops. If your condition is advanced and beyond her care, she will refer you to someone who will be able to help you.

Eyeglass Exams

It is always important to receive a yearly eye exam. This way we can make gradual changes in your prescription instead of big jumps. Big jumps in prescription can cause dizziness and a few more days in adapting to your glasses. Small gradual changes are always more comfortable. We have many frames and lens options to choose from.

Kids Exams

Because children grow quickly in their childhood and teen years, it is common for them to have rapid changes in their vision and eyeglass prescriptions. Oftentimes, children don’t tell their parents they need new glasses. It is important for us to maintain an accurate prescription for them yearly so they do well in school.
