As people age, they generally need to get reading glasses in order to see clearly close up. At our optical practice, Glenn Roter, OD, our patients are able to get Tropicana bifocal lenses for both eyeglasses and contact lenses.

Many people do not like to be seen wearing reading glasses, because they feel it gives away information about their age. Reading glasses can also be inconvenient to use, as they need to be put on whenever you want to read something, or see something, close up. Tropicana bifocal lenses take care of this problem as they allow one lens to have two different lens prescriptions in them. Tropicana bifocal lenses come in several different types. Today, people are able to get multifocal contact lenses which have reading glass prescriptions built into them. These are extremely convenient to use. We also offer eyeglasses with traditional bifocal lenses. Many of our patients now prefer to get prescription eyeglasses with progressive lenses in them. Progressive lenses can have several different lens prescriptions in them, however, they do not have any lines of delineation. This means that the lens is perfectly smooth, and no one is able to tell that the lens has more than one lens prescription in it simply by looking at the lens. This means that you can benefit from the use of reading glasses, without actually having to wear them. All you need to do is glance downward, and your eyes will automatically see through the reading lens portion of the progressive lenses. Progressive lenses can be a bit more expensive than traditional bifocal lenses, however they do have several benefits. Progressive lenses not only look more attractive, but they also offer a larger field of vision since the lenses are smooth and continuous, and the eyes can glance through any portion of the lens to benefit from vision correction.

Farsightedness in Tropicana Las Vegas

Farsightedness is when you see fine at a distance, but have difficulties focusing and seeing clearly with things that are up close. It is a condition that is very common, and one that is easily addressed with a prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses from our Tropicana Las Vegas best optometrist, Dr. Glenn Roter.

What exactly is the cause of farsightedness, or what we clinically refer to as hyperopia? Light enters your eye through the cornea, and is directed to the retina at the back of your eye. If you’re seeing normally, it is because the shape of your cornea is as it should be. The result is that when light hits your retina, it is doing so at or very close to the center, as it is supposed to. Unfortunately, when your cornea is misshapen, light instead reaches the retina more toward the back instead of the center. One of the reasons that you can develop farsightedness is genetics. If one parent had it, you’re more likely to get it. And if both parents had it, that only increases the odds. Diabetic retinopathy, an eye disease that is possible when you have type one or type two diabetes, can also cause farsightedness. Very rarely, an eye tumor can be responsible for it. The most noticeable symptom is that your vision will be blurry when you attempt to look at things near to you. Our Tropicana Las Vegas best optometrist will do a thorough eye exam, recommended annually for all our valued patients, and through that diagnose farsightedness and find the ideal prescription to give you sharp and clear vision up close.

All you have to do is schedule an eye exam at our office. Call us and we will book you a time to come in and get a checkup from our Tropicana Las Vegas best optometrist.
