Thank you for considering Vision Optical for your vision care needs.
There are many different types of vision problems that could be affecting your eyesight. It is very important for you to maintain your healthy eyes with regular vision and eye exams. Our eyecare experts are dedicated to providing you with the highest quality, most comprehensive eye care available. Come visit our newly remodeled location where our caring and efficient staff are here to assist you in all of your eyecare needs.
At Vision Optical we recommend that all of our patients have a routine eye exam once a year, even if you have 20/20 vision. A comprehensive eye exam evaluates three areas that affect your vision: refractive status, binocular vision and ocular health.
We begin with a detailed patient history, then your doctor will perform a refraction to determine what your prescription will be. Following the refraction exam your doctor will test how well your eyes work together, including focusing and eye tracking efficiency. The final step will be to evaluate both the exterior and interior structures of your eyes to detect any eye disease.
After dilating your eyes, the doctor can detect any non-vision health issues and systemic diseases like high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes. We also check for degeneration, retinal holes and detachments.
At Vision Optical we are committed to your overall ocular health. Dr. Jenny Kim makes even the most nervous child feel at ease during his/her eye exam through her kindness and patience. We pride ourselves in having the latest up=to-date technology in diagnostics in the Billings area which allows for the early diagnosis of glaucoma, macular degeneration and other retinal conditions.
If you are experiencing redness, dry eye, styes, pink eye or generalized irritation, call and schedule a consultation today. If you need urgent care for flashes of light, a loss or sudden change in your vision, floaters or extreme pain, please call our office immediately.
One of the most frequently asked questions that we receive at Vision Optical is when does my baby need their first vision checkup. We recommend that checkups should occur at 6 months, 3 years and 5 years of age with our qualified pediatric eyecare professional, Dr. Jenny Kim. This is very important if you have a family history of vision problems or if you notice that your has an occasional eye turn, slight unevenness in the eyelid position, avoidance, fatigue or inattention with reading or school activities, mild headaches, rubbing his/her eyes, occasional squinting or a slight head turn.
During your child’s initial eye exam Dr. Jenny Kim will check the alignment of your child’s eyes, determine whether or not a prescription for glasses is indicated, and finally, evaluate the retina for any eye disease.
There are multiple reasons why you would choose contact lenses over standard eyewear: a glasses-free look, hassle-free vision correction, wearing non-prescription sunwear and goggles, or the convenience of not having to worry about misplacing your glasses. If you have a high prescription or astigmatism, contact lenses may provide more enhanced vision correction than glasses. Today, you can even replace your bifocal glasses with bifocal contact lenses.
Dr. Jenny Kim can recommend the best contact lenses for you based on a complete eye exam and a review of your visual needs both at work and play. Since most people can wear more than one type of lens, it’s important to know what the choices are and the advantages and disadvantages to each.
