VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron EYECARE ADVANCEMENTS Technological advancements improve our lives in a million different ways, from the ability to carry a world of information in our pockets to the capacity of using lasers to improve our vision. Every decade brings us new improvements, and that's especially true in medical fields such as optometry. Lasik surgery is, of course, a significant one, but even a simple eye exam has changed dramatically over the last few decades. Devices like "binocular indirect ophthalmoscopes," which examine the back of the eye, and aspheric lenses for patients with astigmatism have seen dramatic advancements in recent years. Recovery from cataract surgery once involved weeks of slow suture removal, but now, thanks to phacoemulsification, sutures are no longer required. Comfortable and efficient vision involves more than visual acuity. Routine eye exams can detect vision problems, eye disease, and general health problems before you are aware a problem exists. To schedule an exam, please call SKOWRON EYE CARE. What an exciting time to be an optometrist, not only striving for 20/20 vision but actually living in 20/20! At Skowron Eye Care, our mission is your vision. P.S. In the 1970s and 80s, contact lenses were hard (rigid) and could only be worn during the day. Impossible before 1986, some contact lenses can now be worn for days, even weeks at a time. SKOWRON EYE CARE 370 N.
