Optometry 101: What is an Optometrist & What Eye Conditions Do They Treat

Posted by Illinois Eye Center on Aug 5, 2020 9:00:00 AM

An optometrist is an eye doctor who has earned a Doctor of Optometry (OD) degree after attending college and graduating from a 4-year professional program. They perform eye tests and vision tests and detect diseases, injuries, and disorders related to the eyes. Optometrists treat eye conditions, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, and prescribe eyeglasses and contacts. They may also provide low-vision aids and vision therapy.

How Often Should You Get a New Pair of Glasses?

Posted by Illinois Eye Center on Jul 29, 2020 9:00:00 AM

Many of us stick with an old pair of glasses for years, especially if we think we can still see well with them.

Eye care professionals often recommend getting a new pair of glasses every one to three years as needed. Some people have to change their eyeglasses more often than do others. A variety of factors can affect how often you should get new eyewear.

Blurry vision is the most obvious sign that you need new glasses. Using an outdated prescription can make your eyes work harder to focus and this can lead to eyestrain, which can cause headaches. Vision changes typically happen very slowly, especially those associated with glaucoma, so you may not be aware that your vision has changed.

Why Sports Eye Safety Month is Important

Posted by Illinois Eye Center on Apr 2, 2018 8:52:00 AM

When we send our kids off to play football, we make sure their helmet is on tight and their pads are firmly in place. No soccer enthusiast is on the field without his or her shin guards, and a hockey game without a face mask is practically unheard of. Why is it, then, that we’re so lax about providing our children – and, when necessary, ourselves – with the appropriate protective eyewear?
