If you've been having problems with your vision and whether you're farsighted or nearsighted, you will need an optometrist to assist you. At Eye 1st Vision Center, we have years of experience providing residents of Sandy Springs, GA, with reliable optometry services. Our optometrist will evaluate your eyes to determine if you are nearsighted or farsighted and provide treatment accordingly. While both conditions are refractive errors, there are significant differences between them.
At Eye 1st Vision Center, we offer a wide range of services including testing for eye function, coordination, and color vision. We also identify and address eye diseases and disease-related eyesight disorders, and offer pre-operative and post-operative eye surgery care. We will also help you select the best pair of glasses or contact lenses depending on your needs and lifestyle.
For anyone who prefers to use contact lenses instead of glasses, our friendly and knowledgeable team will advise and fit you with the best kind of lenses. These may be soft lenses, disposable lenses, gas-permeable lenses, or specialized lenses for special cases. We also offer ortho-k lenses which reshape your eye overnight, so you can enjoy a few days free of glasses and lenses.
Both conditions affect the way light hits the retina. A nearsighted person can see nearby objects clearly, while distant objects appear blurry. A farsighted person is an opposite. They can see distant objects clearly but have trouble seeing up close. Both will require corrective lenses, which will vary depending on the severity of your condition. Our eye doctor will help you select the perfect pair of corrective lenses based on your needs, lifestyle, and personal style preferences.
