I recently went for an eye exam and got my prescription updated. It had been a couple of years since my last visit. Modern technology keeps changing and leaves me in a tail spin. It is no different at the eye doctor. There were three different exam rooms with a lot of new equipment in them.
Each machine was computerized, specialized, and calibrated, and felt like it was from another planet. I felt a little silly going from room to room with each assistant, putting my chin onto the rest bars of machines, and looking at x, or dots, or getting puffs of air shot into my eyes. I did not really understand what most of the equipment and gadgets were for. I just followed instructions to look here or there. Finally, the eye doctor put various glass lenses in front of me and I had to verbalize which ones were clear or blurry. Sometimes they all seemed blurry and sometimes they all seemed clear and it was hard to tell a difference in them. Other times, it was easy to tell that one was wrong and one was right.
Thankfully, no problems were found with my eyes, but I did need a slightly stronger prescription as my eyes are changing as I get older. And a new prescription meant new glasses and lenses. One thing is for sure, these days, the choices in frames and lens options can be overwhelming.
But help is on the way! I recently learned about Zeiss. Zeiss creates optic lenses and is an expert resource to learn about your eyes and how to take care of them.

risk of a further decline in the child’s vision.”
