Is your vision as good as it could be? For many people, the answer is no, and you may very well be one of them. At Visual Expressions Optometry, we want you to have vision at the highest level you can achieve. Does that mean 20/20 vision? Well, that is certainly a worthwhile goal, but not everyone can reach it.
If you can see from 20 feet away what a person with normal vision can see from that same distance, it is designated at 20/20 vision. That doesn’t mean perfect vision, though. It’s possible to have 20/15 or even 20/10. If you have 20/20 already, you don’t need to have eyeglasses or contact lenses. It’s only at 20/30 or higher that you will need an optical prescription. And if so, our San Ramon CA eye doctor will determine exactly what you need by giving you a thorough examination. Both eyeglasses and contacts work by altering the angle that light travels from your cornea to your retina. Ordinarily, light enters your eye from the cornea, which then directs that light to the retina where an image is formed. If light strikes at or near the center of your retina, you have normal vision. When it strikes off its mark, you end up with nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or some combination of those. Your eyeglass or contact lenses change the direction of light and improves your vision. Our San Ramon CA eye doctor will determine the most appropriate prescription for your individual needs. Over time, that prescription may need to be adjusted in order to be giving you optimal vision correction. This wis why we recommend a yearly visit to our office for a comprehensive eye exam.
Book an appointment to come in for a checkup done by our San Ramon CA eye doctor. There is no reason you should have to settle for any less than the sharpest and clearest vision possible.
