Dr. Burd provides comprehensive eye exams and consulting. She will ask you questions about any vision problems you may have had. Some medications can affect eye health, so she will ask you about any you are taking. Do you have blurry vision? Hypertension? Floaters or eye flashes? What are your work conditions? Working with computers strains the eyes differently from working as a welder, a truck driver or teacher. Your family’s vision problem history is important since some types of eye problems can be hereditary.
Then Dr. Burd will check the general health of your eyes. Do you have good visual acuity? Do you have normal eye pressure? Your eye exam will check for glaucoma, nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, dry eyes presbyopia, and other eye conditions.
We can fit you with any type of contact lens you may need. Getting the right contact lenses and learning how to wear them takes time and patience. Dr. Burd will work with you through the whole process of determining what type of lenses work best with your eyes and lifestyle. There are soft and rigid contact lenses, disposable lenses, extended care lenses, toric lenses, and even tinted ones. Did you know you could get bifocal and trifocal contact lenses?
Eyeglasses & Frames
Glasses exist for all kinds of people and their activities. Lenses can be made of polycarbonate, polyurethane, Trivex, high-index plastic, CR-59 plastic, or glass. Progressive lenses are often preferred over bifocals and trifocals, though more expensive. Better than progressive lenses are custom-made digitally produced high-definition lenses. Glass lenses are great but heavy compared to other materials. Photochromatic lenses are perfect for both indoor and outdoor use. There are even special prescription ski and snow goggle lenses. Computer glasses are especially good for workplaces.
Sunglasses can be especially stylish and useful, with different shades for different people and activities. Lens coatings are also important. Nearly everybody needs anti-glare and UV protective coatings. Polarized lenses can be great for professional drivers.
