One of the things that our Lee's Summit eye doctors stress is the importance of being proactive with your eye care. Many people think that eye care is about making sure that your prescription is updated for glasses and contact lenses. However, there is so much more to eye care than simply checking your refraction.
Scheduling your annual eye exam with our optometrists in Lee's Summit allows you to prevent many conditions that can easily be prevented, as well as reduce annoying symptoms such as dryness and discomfort.

Your eye doctor will talk with you about many important topics such as:
The importance of wearing sunglasses, regular glasses with UV protection, such as transition lenses, or wearing contact lenses that provide UV protection. Many patients are unaware of how much risk is associated with UV exposure, and that making sure that your eyes are protected should start from a young age.
Digital devices such as cell phones, TV's, computers, and tablets, are incredible tools, however, they also pose dangers to our vision and increase stress and discomfort in our eyes. During your annual eye exam in our Lee's Summit optometry practice, our eye doctors will discuss ways to prevent blue light damage to your eyes. This is especially important for children, who have many years of exposure ahead of them, as well as adults that spend hours a day in front of digital devices.
This bombardment of high-intensity light can increase the risk of diseases such as macular degeneration and cataracts. The long-term effects of blue light on children is as of yet unknown. Our optometrists urge patients to treat blue light like UV and wear blue light protection when using digital devices, for both children and adults.
Many options exist such as computer glasses, special lens coatings, reducing time spent in front of devices, and special contact lenses.
Our Lee's Summit optical has a great selection of lens coatings and computer glasses for you to choose from.
