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.

Our team at the offices of Glenn Roter, OD can give you the accurate diagnosis you need to properly care for your vision.

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 have been experiencing blurred vision, it could be more than just fatigue. Tired eyes have trouble seeing, but tired eyes can become more worn out at a faster rate due to a rising optical condition making it twice as hard for them to see clearly, such as astigmatism. Often times we can develop an optical condition and never even realize it, until we have it pointed out to us by a friend, co-worker, or your trusted Rhodes Ranch optometrist at the offices of Glenn Roter, OD. Our professional staff work in a comfortable and welcoming optical care center to give you the information and diagnosis you need for clearer vision.

Many of us will never know we have an optical condition because the most common vision problems occur naturally, which causes loss of sight to occur so slowly that we consider it to be normal. Astigmatism happens when the shape of your eye is not perfectly round, causing the light to become refracted improperly in your optic nerves, resulting in poor and blurry vision. This can often happen so severely that objects at any distance, whether near or far, can become distorted. Though the exact cause of how astigmatism happens in an individual is unknown, many believe that this naturally occurring growth is caused by genetic inheritance, as it tends to run through families. For this reason it is important to discuss any known optical medical history with your local Rhodes Ranch optometrist for personal and precise care of your vision.

Astigmatism can be a debilitating optical condition for anyone, especially in severe cases where your natural range of vision can become extremely inhibited. Fortunately, your professional Rhodes Ranch optometrist offers many modes of treatment to correct your sight for clearer vision. Patients can choose from prescription ophthalmic eyeglasses, as well as special toric lenses which are crafted to specifically treat the problems astigmatism causes for perfect vision. Patients with more severe cases may benefit from rigid contact lens treatment for the best vision correction possible, while others may decide that refractive or IOL surgery is the right choice for them.

However you choose to treat your astigmatism, your local Rhodes Ranch optometrist at the optical health care center of Glenn Roter, OD can be there for you every step of the way. Dr. Roter has been treating a wealth of vision problems, including difficult cases of astigmatism, for over fifteen years of proud service to your local community. His offices are open from Monday through Saturday, with conveniently later hours twice a week to make it easy for you to fit optical care into your busy schedule. Our welcoming and knowledgeable staff at Glenn Roter, OD can work with you to treat your case of astigmatism for clear vision you can count on.
