Many vision problems can be corrected with eyeglasses. The key to getting the best results is to select lenses from a trusted provider. Tribeca Eye & Health is recognized as a leading provider of high-quality lenses and frames for patients throughout New York City's Tribeca neighborhood, offering a broad selection for every patient's needs.
When most people think of conditions that can benefit from eyeglasses, they think of chronic or long-term vision issues like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, and it's true, all of those conditions can be addressed with eyeglasses. But other issues like dry eye, light sensitivity, difficulty focusing on near objects and chronic headaches may also be treated with eyeglasses. The only way to know for sure if eyeglasses can improve chronic symptoms is to have a comprehensive eye exam.
Correcting issues like problems reading or performing close-up work using over-the-counter “reading” glasses is usually not a good idea. Reading glasses are designed to magnify, and both lenses provide the same magnification. However, eyes tend to have different needs when it comes to clear vision, and using the same magnification for each eye can make vision problems worse. The manufacturing process used in over-the-counter eyeglasses is also not nearly as precise as the process used to manufacture lenses purchased through an eye doctor's office. And finally, using reading glasses to improve vision can wind up masking underlying conditions, delaying treatment and causing more serious vision problems to occur. Any change in vision, including changes associated with eye strain and aging, need to be assessed by an eye doctor.
Yes, several lenses on the market can help eliminate the vision problems associated with bright lights and fluorescent lights, including lights that change tint in different lighting conditions.
Tribeca Vision carries a full array of eyeglasses for virtually all types of vision needs, including designer eyewear, lightweight frames, eyewear for children and eyeglasses for athletes and other people with special requirements. Eyeglasses are custom-fitted and adjusted for every patient.
