VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron AN INSIGHTFUL PRESCRIPTION Eyeglass prescriptions contain numbers and abbreviations that may be confusing to patients when getting their first pair of glasses. The abbreviations tell the optician (who creates the eyeglasses based on an eye doctor's prescription) all sorts of information about the condition of your eyes to help pinpoint the corrections that need to be made. Common examples include CYL (cylinder), the amount of stigmatism in the eye; SPH (sphere), the power of lens needed to correct the eyesight; and ADD (additional), the additional lens power needed for reading glasses. These abbreviations are followed by numbers and plus or minus signs that indicate nearsightedness (-), farsightedness (+), and number of diopters (eyeglass strength measurement) needed to correct the issue. Experience, commitment to technology, and a genuine concern for patient welfare enable the professionals at SKOWRON EYE CARE to consistently deliver quality, affordable eye care. We can help you maintain a lifetime of healthy, clear, comfortable vision by using the latest in technology, from diagnosing and managing eye diseases to in-vogue eyewear to complex contact lenses to LASIK eye surgery. At Skowron Eye Care, our mission is your vision. P.S. Nearsightedness means a person can see close objects clearly while objects at a distance appear blurry. Farsightedness makes close objects appear blurry, while distanced objects remain in focus SKOWRON EYE CARE 370 N.
