Are eyeglasses good for me?

There are typically only 2 types of lenses that doctors are able to prescribe for correcting or improving a patient’s vision. These lenses include eyeglasses and contact lenses.

  • Eyeglasses are actually the most common form of eyewear that is used among people today to correct or improve their specific type of vision problem. Eyeglasses are a frame that will hold two pieces of glass or plastic together, which have been grounded into custom lenses to correct vision problems. Vision problems can include trouble seeing far away, also known as nearsightedness, and trouble seeing close up, also known as farsightedness. Having vision problems can also include sight that is blurry due to an oddly or irregularly shaped cornea. Eyeglasses generally work by simply adding or subtracting the focusing power to the eye, or eye’s, cornea and lens.
  • Contact lenses are worn directly on the patient’s cornea. Very similar to eyeglasses, contact lenses correct vision errors. They also do this by simply adding or subtracting the focusing power to the eye’s cornea and lens.

Are there different types of eyeglass lenses?

Yes, there are different types of eyeglass lenses used to correct vision – the type that the patient receives will highly depend on the type of vision problems that they are experiencing. The different types of lenses that are available to patients include:

  • Concave lenses, and these happen to be the thinnest in the center. These lenses are typically always used to correct nearsightedness.
  • Convex lenses, and these happen to be the thickest in the center. Best described as a magnifying glass. These lenses are typically always used to correct farsightedness.
  • Cylindrical lenses, and these lenses curve more in one direction than the other. They are often used to correct astigmatism – which is oddly or a misshaped cornea.
