  • How long will I be there?

  • Will my eyes be dilated?
    Part of an annual eye exam is checking the health of your eyes. A dilated eye exam allows the doctors to see the back of your eye, but leaves your eyes blurry up close for a few hours after the exam. At Studio Optix, we offer additional testing that surpasses traditional dilation and eliminates the need for drops and blurry vision.
  • How often do you recommend an eye exam?
    You should have your eyes examined annually.

    We start seeing patients around age 5, when they can recognize shapes and letters.

  • WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN POLARIZED AND UV PROTECTION SUNGLASSES?
    The sun emits various types of radiation, including heat, visible light, and invisible ultraviolet (UV) rays, which can harm your eyes and skin. When choosing sunglasses, it's essential to understand the difference between UV protection and polarization. UV protection shields your eyes from harmful UV rays, while polarization minimizes glare caused by reflected light. Polarized sunglasses have filters that block horizontal light, reducing glare and preventing squinting. Investing in sunglasses with both UV protection and polarization is crucial for optimal eye care, as not all UV-blocking sunglasses are polarized, and vice versa. Shop carefully to ensure your sunglasses meet your needs. For more information or to purchase eyewear, contact Studio Optix at (212) 765-4444 in New York, New York.
  • HOW LONG ARE GLASSES PRESCRIPTIONS GOOD FOR?
    Your eye doctor can prescribe eyeglasses to correct your vision, but prescriptions have expiration dates, usually lasting one to two years. It's important to get new glasses when needed to prevent eye strain and headaches. Signs you need new glasses include headaches, difficulty focusing, squinting, and blurry vision. Even without symptoms, annual eye exams are recommended to monitor vision and detect other eye conditions. Prescription expiration dates vary by location, so check local regulations. Schedule a comprehensive eye exam to get a new prescription from your eye doctor, and you can order glasses anywhere with an up-to-date prescription.
