Optometrist Rhodes Ranch

Come on in to see our Rhodes Ranch optometrist, Dr. Glenn Roter, for a contact lens exam and fitting. Your contacts are a vital part of your daily life. Our staff is dedicated to making sure that you leave with the ones that are right for you, with the proper prescription and a comfortable fit. Contact lenses are not necessarily better than eyeglasses, but they do have advantages such as allowing you to keep your full range of peripheral vision- side to side- and giving you a more natural vision overall. Participating in athletics or other physical activities is easier with contacts. And of course, your appearance is not altered when you choose contact lenses.

A comprehensive eye exam is recommended for everyone, but a contact lens exam adds more detail so that our Rhodes Ranch optometrist can ensure that your prescription will provide you with the maximum benefit and cause you no fuss, trouble, or difficulty. That is why Dr. Roter will check your eyelids, conjunctiva, and your corneas, including the curve of them. Once your exam has been completed, the next step will be up to our highly skilled optician to craft your new contacts to precision.

No matter how well your contact lenses improve your eyesight, they are worthless if you do not wear them. Obvious, right? Well, that is why the fitting is so important. Our Rhodes Ranch optometrist knows that comfortable contact lenses mean that you will put them in your eyes and enjoy the vision correction that you are in need of. Furthermore, improperly fit contact lenses may not afford you improved eyesight to the greatest degree possible if they do not sit in your eyes properly. So your contact lenses will be tested in your eyes in various positions to achieve optimal alignment.

Whether soft or hard lenses are best for you is something that will be determined as part of your exam and fitting. This depends on personal preference as well as which type of lens is most suitable for your particular vision need. With soft lenses, choose among daily wear, extended wear, disposable, and color changing- for that sense of added style you may be craving.

Are you constantly getting the feeling that something is in your eye, but when you look carefully in the mirror, you find nothing is there at all? If you are experiencing watery, yellow to green, or otherwise bloody discharge from your eye, a fever without any other causes, or increasing redness in the eye or eyelids, you could be experiencing an infection occurring within your eyes. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should never hesitate to visit your local Rhodes Ranch eye doctor. Our team at the offices of Glenn Roter, OD can give you the accurate diagnosis you need to properly care for your vision.

Eye Infection Treatment Rhodes Ranch

Unbeknownst to many of us, eye infections are more common that we may think. It may seem strange to realize, but there are numerous types of bacteria which constantly exist on our bodies, inside and out. Numerous varieties live on our skin at all times. In most cases our protective layer keeps these microorganisms from ever causing us any harm. However, it is not difficult for these bacteria to get into your eyes and cause problems. One such issue that occurs is known as stye. Externally, a stye appears as a sort of pimple upon your eyelid, occurring next to your line of eyelashes. It can become a red painful bump, but when a stye happens internally, it grows inside your eyelid and will need the care of your trusted Rhodes Ranch eye doctor to heal effectively.

Not all eye infections occur from oils on your skin, others can be caught from those you see and run into every day. Conjunctivitis is the most commonly known optical infection among many of us because it is so highly contagious, but it is also often caused by allergies and irritants. Known to many as pink eye, conjunctivitis causes eyes to become blood shot, earning its name. Pink eye can also cause yellow discharge which can stick to your eyelashes during sleep, burning sensations in your eyes, blurred vision, and even an increased sensitivity to light. Conjunctivitis can be caused by a whole host of reasons, and each requiring a different mode of care from your professional Rhodes Ranch eye doctor.

Eye infections happen to many of us, and the odds increase with contact lens wearers, and certain environments can also cause an infection of your eyes. The right care for your eyes requires a personal and experienced Rhodes Ranch eye doctor who will listen closely to your medical needs. You can find exactly that at the offices of Glenn Roter, OD. Our welcoming offices have proudly served your local community for over 15 fifteen years. You can rest assured that Dr. Roter will have your sighted returned to a healthy state.

If you think that having your vision checked with an eye chart is one thing that cannot benefit from emerging technology, you may find yourself pleasantly surprised. At our Rhodes Ranch optical store, our optometrist, Dr. Glenn Roter, utilizes a Reichert digital vision chart to ensure the best and most accurate evaluation of your vision. We urge you to come in for regular eye exams and we stay on the cutting edge of technology to offer you eye exams that detect any problems or potential concerns early on. In addition, the Reichert digital vision chart allows a more ideal visual acuity test that leads to the best corrective lens prescription possible and optimal vision for you.

Vision Testing Rhodes Ranch

Unlike traditional eye charts, the Reichert digital vision chart provides many advantages that make it a more precise measurement of your vision. For one thing, our eye doctor can use the control screen to see exactly what you are seeing when you are seeing it instead of having to turn around. The screen has a bright and clear resolution. It does not fade or turn yellow with age and therefore it permits you to read from a pristine chart. That reduces the chances of you reading incorrectly based upon a chart that is difficult to read properly. The staff at our Rhodes Ranch optical store wants to evaluate your vision correctly and we use the most up to date methods at our disposal to do so.

You are probably used to taking a vision test in relative darkness. But with the Reichert digital vision chart, this is not necessary. Allowing more light mimics the normal reading environment far better. The contrast can be adjusted to suit each person as an individual. The primary goal at our Rhodes Ranch optical store is to give you eye exams that are efficient and accurate. Using this digital eye chart gives us the opportunity to meet that goal with increasing confidence. As a result, when you walk out with your new eyeglasses or contact lenses, you can feel assured that they reflect the strengths and weaknesses in your visual acuity optimally. That makes us happy and we think it will make you happy, too.
