Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I need to test my eyes?
As per the American Optometric Association grown-ups who use glasses or contact lenses and adults who are over 60 years should visit their eye care specialist every year or as advised by the doctor. If the person doesn’t need any eyesight correction, then a person between 18 and 60 years should visit the doctor twice a year.
What is Cataract?
In the normal eye, the lens inside is fair and transparent, but when Cataract occurs it becomes cloudy and opaque. So the light is not centered on the retina through the lens which leads to blurring of vision. Surgery is the only method to remove Cataract.
What causes myopia?
Myopia is caused by a blend of environmental factors and genetics. Researches show that if we can move the focal point in front of the mid-peripheral retina we can reduce the risk of myopia. The increased use of mobile and computers, as well as less time outdoors, is probably a reason for Myopia.
Is it possible to transplant the eye?
No. Currently, there is no method to transplant a whole eye. However, corneas have been successfully transplanted for several years.
Is there any complications related to Contact Lenses wear?
Unnecessary wear of Contact Lenses, especially overnight wear, and poor hygiene is connected with most of the safety concerns. Never neglect any redness, itching, watering if you are wearing Contact Lens and you must ask advice from the ophthalmologist.
