An optometrist is a person who helps you to care for your eyes. They also look after the related structure of the eye. If you have a lazy eye, or if you are squint or maybe you just can’t see the television screen properly, you many need to see an optometrist. This eye doctor would generally perform a test to determine if your vision has diminished. They would also examine the eyes to find out why your eyesight may be failing. For most people, sitting too close the television or constantly straining your eyes can cause damage. However these vision defects can be corrected by an optometrist. This specialist can also recommend ways in which to minimise the loss of vision year on year, or methods for improving the eyesight. Most people are either short sighted, or long sighted. The typical optometrist would prescribe corrective lenses referred to as glasses or spectacles to help their patients see well. Today, with modern science making huge advances, the optometrist can also prescribe the corrective contact lenses so that you don’t have to wear glasses. Theses lenses also come in various colours, improving your vision and your look. While the optometrist is generally the first line of professional one would visit for corrective vision, one may have to see a higher specialist for complications regarding the eye. With the right recommendation from your optometrist you may also qualify for laser surgery, depending on the condition of your vision. All optometrists are registered with the department of health and also various other bodies. For more information about optometrist, visit the Yellowpages website.
