Why Is Routine Eye Examination Important

Eyeris the Optometrists provides every patient with an eye exam conducted with the latest training and technology. Their expertise enables them to provide care for individuals of all ages, from infants to adults.

If there’s a history of genetic eye conditions in your family, it’s important that you and your children routinely undergo a routine eye exam. The earlier these conditions are detected, the better. This is especially true for kids, given how essential vision skills are to early childhood development. Remember: vision skills, such as focusing your eyes and using the information gathered from sight, don’t come naturally to children—these skills have to be learned through visual stimulation. As such, vision conditions can hamper their development.

It is important that one is examined by a qualified Ophthalmic Optician or Optometrist who can determine the refractive status of the eye and also examine the back of the eye for any ocular abnormality. If anything abnormal is detected, the Optometrist refers the patient to an Ophthalmologist for further evaluation.

Eyeris The Optometrists – What Do Optometrists Do In Your Eyes?

An Optometrist is NOT a medical doctor. Optometrists are professionals who provide primary vision care. They are licensed to practice Optometry, which primarily involves performing eye exams and vision tests, prescribing and dispensing corrective lenses, detecting certain eye abnormalities, and prescribing medications for certain eye conditions.

An Ophthalmologist is licensed to practice medicine and surgery. An Ophthalmologist diagnoses and treats all eye diseases, and performs eye surgery. Many ophthalmologists are also involved in scientific research on the causes and cures of eye diseases and vision disorders.

In all the tests should take around 30 minutes – it could be the most important half an hour of your life

Eyeris The Optometrists – Computerized Eye Testing

‘’Computerisation’’ seems to be the magic word these days-and rightly so! What role does it play in optometry though? We often hear of ‘’free computerised eye testing’’. What does this mean and to what extent can it really be used?

Computerised eye-testing has been developed to assist a qualified optometrist. It produces a result that should merely be used as a base for further examination. It CANNOT be used as a prescription for dispensing spectacles – No matter how ‘’latest’’ the equipment is!

Therefore, be cautious…… if the person examining your eyes is not qualified, the computer is not really guaranteed to provide the correct result.To obtain an accurate correction of your visual problem, a thorough follow-up eye examination by a qualified optometrist has to be performed. Only then can you be assured that all aspects of your visual defects are detected and appropriately corrected.

Are You Suffering From Eyestrain As A Result Of Computers?

Eyeris Is Here To Help. Human eyes function more efficiently and less strenuously when seeing at distance. Working with a computer requires the use of your eyes at a closer range, usually intensely, for long periods of time. This alone can strain your eyes and may cause vision problems to develop or aggravate existing vision conditions.

Eyestrain is a term used to describe a wide range of symptoms including tiredness, irritation and soreness of the eyes, screwing up of the eyes, photophobia (discomfort in bright light) and headaches. Eyestrain is often the cause of frontal headaches and relief can mostly be obtained by means of prescription lenses, contact lenses or vision therapy.

Choose The Perfect Frames For Yourself With Eyeris

At Eyeris, we believe we can find the eyewear to fit everyone. No matter your nose profile, face shape or size, we strive to offer the perfect solution without compromising

comfort or style.

Here are some tips on what frame suits what face shape, skin tone and what is practical for the life style you lead.

Ensure you see a well-qualified optometrist who can advise you on suitable frames and the latest advances in lens technology.

Learn About High Index Lenses With Eyeris

High prescription?

Limited choice of frames?

Heavy spec’s looking like bottle bottoms?

Not with high index lenses…

Take heart, even if your prescription is very high, you can still have a fashionable ‘hip’ frame with thin lenses to make them look cosmetically acceptable. High index lenses are of a material of higher density and result in a thinner, lighter and cosmetically acceptable spectacle lens.

There is a choice of different materials: plastic, polycarbonate or glass, as well as various degrees of density. The higher the density, the thinner the lens. Even a very short sighted person (with a high prescription) will be able to select a frame of his / her choice and need not worry that the specs will look like “bottle bottoms”.

If your prescription is higher than average and you want your specs to be fashionable, light and comfy, go for high index lenses.

As always, be sure to get the “genuine product” and be well advised by a professional.

A Closer Look At Corrective And Cosmetic Lenses: Understanding Your Options

Ever wanted to change the colour of your eyes but wondered whether you would cope with the lenses? Or wanted to change your image for that special occasion or a theme party? Well, it is easier than you ever thought.

Nowadays, contact lenses are not simply corrective but are also fashionable and complement your attire. The best part is that they are made of materials that are comfortable to wear and easy to care for.

It is important to see an optometrist before you try these contact lenses. The optometrist needs to confirm that you are a suitable candidate by performing an eye examination, checking for any abnormalities of the cornea, ensuring your general health is good, and that the correct lenses are fitted to match the curvature of your eyes. One must also be taught how to insert and remove these lenses and the correct procedure to follow in cleaning and wearing them. Buying these lenses off the shelf and avoiding the fitting charges to save costs is certainly not a good idea.


Protective or Corrective Spectacle Lenses?

Due to the variety of options, most individuals take a lot of time selecting the frames for their glasses. Few people are aware that they also have access to a wide variety of lenses that provide correction and protection which enables them to see clearly and precisely.

While choosing the proper frames is crucial for comfort and appearance, it also takes time and thought to select the lenses that are best for your eyesight, way of life, and requirements.

Whatever your requirements, taking the time to weigh all your possibilities is worthwhile. It is crucial to understand that you don’t have to select one or the other of these lenses; you can combine all these choices to get the greatest eyesight for your needs.

Make an appointment and visit Eyeris, we can suggest choices based on your preferences, age, and prescription requirements.


Keratoconus: The Rare Eye Condition You Need To Know About

Keratoconus is a degenerative disorder of the eye, where the cornea changes from its regular shape to becoming cone-shaped.

It is associated with other atopic conditions such as allergy, asthma and eczema but the exact cause is uncertain.

About one in 2,000, people are affected by keratoconus. The disease progresses for four to seven years. Keratoconus affects both eyes in about 96% of cases, with one eye typically progressing more than the other.

By complying with the recommended care regimen, recognizing the early signs and symptoms of adverse reactions, and seeking professional care immediately if any complications do arise, patients with keratoconus should be able to look forward to many years of successful contact lens wear. Just a few minutes of lens care each night can ensure a lifetime of success.

What Every Contact Lens Wearer Needs To Know (But Is Afraid To Ask)

If you’re a contact lens wearer, chances are you went through a mini-course in hygiene when you first got your prescription. But if you’re being honest, how often do you actually follow all of these steps? And how often do you do things your optometrist warns you against -like sleeping or swimming in your contacts, or wearing your monthlies for longer than a month thinking “Nothing bad has happened to me yet”?

Here is a guide of some of the common mistakes soft contact lens wearers make, what should be done instead, and the worst that can happen with poor hygiene. This may convince you to change your bad habits for good.

Smart Ways To Manage Myopia At Eyeris

Nothing is more important than the health and well-being of your child. Now and into the future, you want to see your child thrive. But you may have noticed your child struggling to see clearly at a distance, making it harder to concentrate at school and have a fulfilling experience at play. Your child may have myopia, also called near-sightedness. If left untreated in children, it can lead to lasting vision problems.

The optometrists at Eyeris have undergone training and certification for the management of myopia in children. We are working with two ophthalmologists in closely monitoring the children on this programme, which is proving to be highly successful. Currently, we have children using MiYOSMART lenses or Atropine 0.01% eye drops or a combination of the two.

Understanding The Irlen Method: A Revolutionary Approach To Visual Processing

What can happen when people read

The inability to cope with black text on a white background causes letters, numbers and words to move, wave, wobble, jump, shake, vibrate, shrink, disappear or blur. The background can become brighter or dimmer; flash, flicker or sparkle; colours can also appear.

At Eyeris, we have two Optometrists that have been certified to screen for Irlen Syndrome & Visual Stress and have been helping individuals since 2013. 


Understanding Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) With Eyeris

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye disease that can blur your central vision. It happens when aging causes damage to the macula — the part of the retina that controls sharp, straight-ahead vision.
AMD is a common condition — it’s a leading cause of vision loss for older adults. AMD doesn’t cause complete blindness, but losing your central vision can make it harder to see faces, read, drive, or do close-up work like cooking or fixing things around the house. AMD happens very slowly in some people and faster in others. If you have early AMD, you may not notice vision loss for a long time, which is why it is important to get regular eye exams.

The good news is, there are things that can help — like low vision devices. At Eyeris we have a range of low vision aids that are hand held, with or without lighting, stand magnifiers that allow the hands to be free to allow you to perform tasks such as sewing, signing cheques, etc., and special make-up magnifying glasses that allow you to apply make-up while using a strong magnifying lens for the opposite eye.
