Eyeglass prescription

Eyeglass prescription

An eyeglass prescription is an order written by an eyewear prescriber, such as an optometrist or ophthalmologist, that specifies the value of all parameters the prescriber has deemed necessary to construct and/or dispense corrective lenses appropriate for a patient.
If an examination indicates that corrective lenses are appropriate, the prescriber generally provides the patient with an eyewear prescription at the conclusion of the exam. In the United States, the FTC requires eyewear prescribers to give each patient a copy of their prescription, immediately following the concluding exam, even if the patient doesn't ask for a copy.
The parameters specified on spectacle prescriptions vary, but typically include the power to which each lens should be made in order to correct...

Dr Rosemary: Is an eye test at my age really necessary? - Express.co.uk

Q I'M 45 and have just started having difficulty reading small print. I bought some glasses from the supermarket which have really helped but a friend says I should have a proper test. A AN examination by an optometrist can sort out exactly what type of glasses you need and it's not always straightforward. For example, I have an astigmatism which means that the front surface of my eye is slightly irregular and although cheap reading glasses help me to read small print my vision is much better with the special lenses prescribed by my optician. And if you are concerned about cost Vision Express is offering a free eye test for everyone.

HYDERABAD: Meera Natwar noticed dryness in her 10-year-old son’s eyes. Eventually, she kept her son at home and gave him the prescribed medicines. Viral conjunctivitis stays at least for a week, according to Dr Kaushik Murali, Consultant Ophthalmologist, Sankara Eye Hospital. With books becoming glossier, and children and youths gazing for long hours at mobile phones, desktop computers and laptops to study, the problem of dry eyes is common. Dr Sunita Agarwal of Agarwal Hospitals says, “The hot weather causes evaporation of the fluid that lubricates the eyes. About 40 per cent of patients have conjunctivitis, allergy and dry eyes. ”Anti-glare glasses are advised for children who read a lot from screens.
