The Value of seeing an Experienced Optometrist

Today, life seems busier than ever and it is so easy for our eyesight to take the backseat when considering health priorities. However, we recommend having a comprehensive eye examination with our experienced Optometrist annually in order to maintain your clearest, most comfortable vision.

Taking care of your eyesight includes protecting your eyes from wind and Solar UV and foreign bodies in your environment every day. Our Optometrist can advise you on the best sunglass protection for all the activities in your busy life. Narelle Hine can also keep your vision optimised for clarity giving you your best possible vision enjoyment at work and play. Screening for eye disease during your regular eye examination is also critical to preserving your vision for life. And who doesn’t want to enjoy high definition vision in their daily world?

  • If you have been experiencing blurry vision and eyestrain, a comprehensive eye examination will allow our Optometrist to diagnose and correct the cause of the problem. Life is too short for struggling with blurred vision.
  • One of the lead causes for eye muscle strain and headaches is over use of our computers and mobile phone screens in our daily life.  Obviously, the severity of eye strain is exacerbated when vision correction is needed at close range or incorrect glasses or contact lens correction is worn. We highly recommend stepping away from any screen that you are using at least once every thirty minutes and to stretch and relax your eye muscles by looking into the distance for a few minutes and blinking frequently to reform depleted tear film. Even simply looking away from the device that you are using for at least twenty seconds to give your eyes a momentary break is useful for avoiding digital eyestrain and unpleasant dry eye symptoms.
  • Complaints of dry eyes after prolonged screen work are a common and natural consequence of not taking the regular breaks. Our Optometrist will advise you about the right lubricant eye drops and dosage to ease your dry eye discomfort.

Key Questions to Ask Hinesight About an Optometrist in the Sydney CBD

As with most medical conditions, the earlier that you can identify eye-related issues and treat them, the better it will be for your health and wellbeing. We’ve identified a few common vision issues that usually arise in chair-side discussions during your eye exam:

  • How do I know I need an eye exam? Sometimes, you may notice tell-tale signs that it is time to have your eyes examined. If you have been experiencing headaches, blurry vision, lack of concentration reading or sore/red eyes, we advise that you book an appointment at HineSight!
  • For normal eyes, (eyes with no diagnosed disease), we recommend a full, comprehensive eye examination for everyone at least once every 2 years. Starting from the age of 2 years. Even if you haven’t noticed any difference in your vision, it’s vital to continue having regular eye tests because some early eye changes go unnoticed.
  • What is Presbyopia? As you would expect, our eyesight grows weaker with age and if we have normal vision, by 45, a natural physiological process called Presbyopia occurs. This age-related deterioration at close range is unavoidable and in most cases, a correctly prescribed pair of glasses or multifocal contact lenses can restore our near visual comfort and clarity. Over the next 30 years, Presbyopia has a cumulative hardening effect on our eye’s internal crystalline lens and our reading glasses need regular updates to keep pace.
  • Eye Disease and Ageing Apart from changes to our vision, increasing age is also a prime risk factor for developing eye disease, some of which is sight threatening. There is no way to tell if you have an internal eye disease that may threaten your eyesight just by looking in the mirror. Early detection of changes, correct diagnosis and treatment is the key to preserving our vision into old age. Here at Hinesight, our Optometrist uses a range of advanced instruments and technology to thoroughly examine your eye health and determine if there are any issues; big or small, urgent or not. Because you are an individual, it is important to learn more about how to care for your eyes and their likely issues in the present and future adds value to your eye examination visit.
