Is your vision blurry or fuzzy? Are you having a hard time reading close up or far away? Do your glasses or contacts no longer completely correct your vision problems? Are you experiencing eye fatigue, headaches or dry eyes? Do you or your family have a history of glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetes-related eye problems or other eye diseases or problems? Has it been more than a year since your last eye exam?
A “yes” answer to any of the questions above means it is time for you to visit a local San Mateo County optometrist in South SF, Daly City, San Bruno, Menlo Park, Foster City, Burlingame, Redwood City and Pacifica or an area near you.
Optometrists are Doctors of Optometry and can provide eye exams, eye health screenings, care for low vision and vision therapies. San Mateo County optometrists can also correct patients’ vision by prescribing eyeglasses, contact lenses and prescription sunglasses. Many also provide preoperative screenings and post-operative care for patients who have had eye surgery, even though most cannot perform eye surgery themselves.
