A growing number of people around the world are nearsighted. Your optometrist can prescribe glasses to help you with this problem.

You don’t need frames to wear them and you can continue living your active lifestyle without your lenses being a hindrance.
Digital retinal imaging is a painless, quick and effective method that your optometrist or ophthalmologist can use to see and capture changes in your eyes. This helps professionals detect any vision problems that may develop or are already developing. Using digital retinal imaging technology lets eye doctors address issues with your eyesight before serious complications occur. It also allows doctors to spot other diseases not limited to your eyesight.
