Frequently Asked Questions
about Dr. Puja Parekh, La Habra
You should see an optometrist once a year whether or not you believe you need vision correction. An annual eye exam can detect not only eye diseases but also other diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure. Schedule your eye exam today.
You should bring your vision insurance and medical insurance information to your eye exam. If you currently wear any prescription lenses, bring your eyeglasses, sunglasses, and contact lenses. You should also bring any and all questions you may have. Contact your optometrist if you have specific questions about any additional items you think you may need to bring to your eye exam.
Taking your child to an optometrist for an eye exam is the best way to learn if your child needs glasses. Many children who need glasses aren’t aware that they do. Signs of vision problems in children include sitting too close to the television, squinting, sensitivity to light, difficulty with eye-hand coordination, and avoiding visual activities like reading and drawing. To see if your child needs glasses, schedule your child’s eye exam today.
Changes in vision that occur with age include reduced pupil size, dry eyes, loss of peripheral vision, decreased color vision, and vitreous detachment. The most common vision problem that comes with age is presbyopia, which is the normal and unavoidable age-related loss of focusing ability. Different types of lenses can provide help for presbyopia. The risk of developing cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy increases with age too. Your optometrist will discuss any age-related vision problems you’re experiencing at your next annual eye exam.
Nearly anyone who needs vision correction can wear contact lenses. Contact lenses can provide vision correction for people with nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or a combination of these issues. Finding the perfect lens for you is sometimes a process of trial and error. All of the lens parameters can be finalized only after you’ve worn the successful combination. Schedule an eye exam to talk with your optometrist about whether contact lenses would be a good vision correction option for you.

Use Your Family Vision Benefits
2023 is nearly here—and while the calendar is filling up with holiday fun for the whole family, don't forget to use your vision benefits before time runs out. Many vision plans do not roll over into the next year, so if you don't use your benefits you may end up losing them. With that in mind, now is the perfect time for a comprehensive eye exam and ensures you're utilizing your family vision insurance. Your insurance plan may cover eye exams, as well as prescription glasses, prescription sunglasses, and contact lenses. You may save even more if you have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA)—these can be used on eyecare accessories, too. Give your family a confident start to the new year knowing that they have cared for their eyes. And, while you're at it, make a resolution to not take your eyes for granted. The gift of sight allows you to see our community and the world around you—but it's a gift that needs to be taken care of regularly. Make vision for your family a priority this upcoming year and begin by booking eye exams using your vision benefits before the end of 2022. For your convenience, you can now schedule your eye exams online. Please consult your individual Vision Plan for coverage details.SCHEDULE NOW

WHY KIDS NEED EYE CARE
Children use their eyes constantly throughout the day to read, write, view the chalkboard, work on computers, and play sports. The strain put on their eyes only grows as they get older. While print in books gets smaller, hours spent studying increases. If parents don't get their children proper vision care, they can fall behind in every aspect of development.
