Frequently Asked Questions
about Dr. Heather Jackson, Optometrist, and Associates - St Louis Park, St. Louis Park
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.

Make Sure Kids Are Ready for Back to School
Scheduling a back\-to\-school eye exam is an important factor in your child's overall academic success. As your family's "chief health officer", you do all you can to make sure that everyone's medical needs are addressed. Annual eye exams should be high on that list as your child's visual needs frequently change as they grow. A child's vision can change without them or you even noticing. The fact is children need to see well in order to learn. That's why regular vision care is essential to ensure that young eyes develop properly. Undetected vision problems can affect learning in many ways. Unfortunately, many children are incorrectly diagnosed with behavioral or learning disabilities when the problem is actually their poor vision. In\-school vision screenings are not enough. Did you know 75% of vision screenings miss visual issues? Our comprehensive eye exams check your child's visual ability AND overall eye health. We can then work together to develop a plan to treat any vision issues found. When a vision problem is detected early, it is more likely the treatment will be successful. Ensure your child's eyes get the necessary care and schedule an eye exam online today. *Source: https://www.aoa.org/healthy\-eyes/eye\-health\-for\-life/school\-aged\-vision?sso=y*

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.
