Optical Services Q & A

What are standard optical services?

Standard optical services include comprehensive eye exams and routine vision screenings, both of which are designed to help you protect your sight and promote optimal eye health. The team at Benjamin Optical offers regular eye exams and vision screenings to patients of all ages, including children.

Having an annual eye exam can help you uncover common vision problems like colorblindness, nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatisms, and presbyopia, a common age-related condition that affects your ability to focus up close.

On top of helping you keep your corrective lens prescription up-to-date, having regular comprehensive eye exams is the best way to catch macular degeneration, glaucoma, dry eye, and other problematic conditions and disorders early before they affect your vision.

What are specialty optical services?

As a full-service eye and vision center committed to providing exceptional care, Benjamin Optical offers a complete range of specialty services, including advanced diagnostic testing, glaucoma screening, eye symptom evaluation, and A-to-Z care for any issue, disease, condition, or disorder in the vast area of ocular health.

In some cases, it’s a routine eye exam that uncovers signs of a problem that calls for specialized care. In other cases, it’s the investigation of blurry vision, eye strain, haziness, double vision, or any other eye-related symptoms that leads to more in-depth assessment, treatment, and/or ongoing care.

The team at Benjamin Optical has extensive experience diagnosing, treating, and managing the various chronic eye diseases and conditions that require specialty care, ranging from dry eye and diabetic retinopathy to amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (crossed eyes).

What type of corrective lenses are available?

Approximately 11 million Americans over the age of 12 require some form of vision correction to see properly. For many people, eyeglasses are an easy and effective way to offset nearsightedness, farsightedness, blurry vision, or presbyopia, the loss of close-up vision that comes with age. For others, corrective contact lenses are a more appealing option.

The team at Benjamin Optical offers contact lenses to suit all vision needs and lifestyles, including daily wear, extended wear, disposable, and specialized contact lenses. They also offer a wide selection of eyeglasses, ranging from high-fashion frames and prescription sunglasses to budget-friendly eyewear and protective lenses for sports and work.
