Choose From a Range of Stylish Glasses to Improve Your Vision
Montgomery Eye Care uses a variety of tests to determine the right prescription glasses for our patients. Prescription glasses and contact lenses improve the way light is refracted onto the retina, correcting the effects of farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism. We offer a wide assortment of frames to make them uniquely yours while suiting your lifestyle and budget. With two conveniently located offices in Westminster and Northglenn, CO, Dr. Jim E. Montgomery will conduct a thorough exam to determine your needs and provide the high level of care you deserve.
Convenient, Affordable Vision Correction
The three most common conditions that require prescription eyeglasses are myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. Other conditions include presbyopia, or an inability to focus close up due to age, and the beginning stages of cataracts. Nearsightedness is often associated with eye fatigue, and these patients have trouble seeing objects in the distance, such as road signs. In recent years, the number of myopia cases has increased. This trend is thought to be associated with increased usage of computers, smartphones, tablets, and other close visual tasks.
Your eyes are unique and we believe your experience with prescription eyeglasses should also be one of a kind.
The opposite of myopia is hyperopia, or farsightedness. Farsighted patients can see objects far away but have trouble seeing close up. Many children are born farsighted, but usually outgrow the condition with age. Hyperopia and presbyopia are often confused. Patients who suffer from presbyopia also have trouble seeing objects at a close range but the condition is caused by age and degeneration of the eye's lens.
Unlike nearsightedness or farsightedness, which results when the cornea is curved too steeply or is not sloped enough, astigmatism is caused by various corneal imperfections. The condition can cause halos and glares, resulting in blurred vision. Astigmatism often develops at a younger age compared to other eye conditions.
Signs of Impaired Vision
Common symptoms associated with eye conditions that can be treated with prescription glasses include:
- Blurred vision
- Eye strain
- Eye fatigue
How is Your Prescription Determined?
Having 20/20 vision means an object at 20 feet can be seen with the expected sharpness and clarity. However, even if you have 20/20 vision, you can still have visual problems. At your consultation, Dr. Montgomery will conduct a comprehensive exam using multiple tests to determine your prescription. You can expect to view a standard eye chart, in addition to visual acuity tests to measure how sharp your vision is both close up and far away. Other tests can include a color blindness test, ocular motility test to assess movement of the eye, and a refraction test, which gives the doctor your exact prescription. All tests are completed in the office and are non-invasive.

"My friend referred me to Dr. Montgomery who was VERY patient, and determined I had a virus, complicated by dry eye. I have been working with him for over about two years now, and my eye is MUCH better under his very professional care. If you have an ongoing problem, or just need a good eye doc, I highly recommend him."Review From ratemds.com
