Tips to Choosing the Best Eye Clinic As with doctors you have a choice of eye doctors so choosing an eye clinic is not a quick and simple job in fact you need to look long and hard at your eyesight needs to identify which one is the best match to meet your particular requirements. One of the first things you are going to want to do is identify your eye care needs. If you are losing vision in part of your eye or you have lost vision completely maybe youre seeing flashing lights or you have a sharp pain around one or both of your eyes then an optician is not what you are looking for in these situations you are looking for an ophthalmologist an expert eye doctor and surgeon. Before you can really start looking around to make your selection you should understand the different eye doctors working at eye clinics so you can decide on the right match to meet your eyesight needs.

The first one we are going to look at is an optician. An optician is someone you find in an shop in your local mall or area. They are expert eye doctors that are permitted to sell and fit prescription glasses and contact lenses. These doctors will perform eye tests check your eyes thoroughly and match your prescription to your unique eyesight needs. An optician will work with you to find the right prescription to ensure you see clearly and can read with comfort. They will then have the glasses made or contacts ordered based on your preferences. Once they arrive back they will assist you in fitting the frames properly or helping you manage your lenses so that you are comfortable with your new eye wear. An ophthalmologist on the other hand is very different. While they are more than able to assist with prescription glasses and general eye tests these are specialist eye doctors and surgeons who focus on the more serious eye conditions. You may be referred to an eye clinic by your optician if they notice a serious problem even by your GP. The ophthalmologist will work from a specialist eye clinic to provide you with the assistance you need when it comes to your eyesight needs. An ophthalmologist will handle all eye medical and surgical procedures from retina detachments to macular holes and diabetic retinopathy. One of the most common surgeries performed by these eye specialists are vitrectomies which is eye surgery to repair the retina and used extensively whether you are suffering with floaters retinal detachment a macular hole or damage caused to the eye from diabetes.

This surgeon carries out the surgery as a day case which is always beneficial. They will make a very small incision in the eye and remove the vitreous gel which does leak and cause damage especially with age. The gel is removed and replaced with a gas. There are very strict instructions on how to manage the condition once the surgery is completed to ensure the best end results. From here you will want to ensure you choose the best eye clinic for you. Remember you have to take travelling time into consideration. If you are having a vitrectomy then you dont want to travel too far to get home afterwards. If you choose an eye clinic in a major city then you may want to book into a hotel for a couple of nights before travelling. You will also be restricted when it comes to driving so these are all very important factors you will want to consider before choosing your eye clinic and making an appointment.
