People who complain of certain eye problems will usually see their primary care doctor or emergency room physician. These doctors can diagnose some of the diseases and probably treat some of them. However, much of the treatment is reliant on an eye doctor. If the patient needs glasses, they will have to go to an opthalmologist for the full examination.
Back in the days of our grandparents the choices of eyeglasses frames were very limited. There was a basic style for men and women that all frame manufacturers followed. Luckily, there have been a lot of changes in the selection of frames we now have to choose from.
The eyeglasses frames of today offer a variety of styles and colors.
Prescription eye glasses are used for vision correction as the combination of the lenses in your eyes and the lenses in your glasses will allow you to see properly. Those that have an astigmatism, are nearsighted or farsighted will require prescription eyeglasses. If you are nearsighted then you cannot see clearly far away and if you are farsighted then you cannot see clearly up close. As people age they may become both farsighted and nearsighted.
