Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why are eye exams important?

    Since many eye diseases show no immediate symptoms until the damage is done, regular eye exams are one of the most important things you can do for your vision and your overall health.  Eye exams can help detect cataracts, glaucoma and retinal disease, as well as diabetes and high blood pressure.
  • Do you provide eye exams for children?

    Remembering a few simple things about taking care of your glasses can extend their life.*
    • Keep your lenses clean by washing them twice daily in warm water or with special lens cleaner. Dry them with a soft cotton towel or special eyeglass cleaning cloth.
    • When not wearing your glasses, keep them in their protective case. Never rest them face down on their lenses.
    • Always put on or take off your glasses with both hands, grabbing the temples midway on each side and sliding them over your ears. This will help them keep their adjustment longer.
    • Don't wipe your lenses while they are dry. Wash or blow off dust or grit instead. Never use paper products to wipe glasses as they can scratch the lens.

    Over time, your frames will need adjusting. While many people like to think they can adjust their frames by themselves, it is always a good idea to have an eye care professional adjust your glasses to ensure the proper fit and comfort. You can come to Cornerstone Optometry anytime for free adjustments.
