  • Visual acuity and the driving test

    Visual acuity of both eyes, whether corrected or non-corrected (with or without glasses or lenses) of 0.8 in sum, on the condition that one eye has a vision of at least 0.5 and that the field of vision is regular. If a person has only one eye, the visual acuity of that eye, whether corrected or non-corrected, must be at least 0.8 with the regular field of vision.

  • Stress and diopter

    "In the past few months I have noticed that my vision has impaired, that is to say, I see some white spots, I have constant headaches, dizziness, I cannot keep focus on objects. I would like to know whether astigmatism has an impact on vision and on some strange dizziness and is it possible that diopter is increased due to stress?”

     

    Your problems with the focus, dizziness and headaches may be a consequence of inadequate diopter or of disturbed fusion (fusion of image) as a consequence of latent squinting, especially at times when you study a lot.

    Astigmatism, which, like a diopter which is insufficiently or overly corrected, can cause certain problems (blurred vision, headaches, dizziness).

    Stress itself cannot increase the diopter but can decrease the general compensation abilities of organism, including a person’s ability to, by using his/her own force of activity of accommodation of ocular muscle, to some degree, decrease his/her non-corrected or insufficiently corrected diopter. (This is why when, for example, tired, people need to wear the glasses more).

     

     

  • What does the general eye examination consist of?

    The general eye examination includes the following:

     

    • Determining visual acuity without the glasses
    • Determining diopter on automatic computer refractometer
    • Testing visual acuity with the obtained correction, i.e. checking the obtained diopter on refractometer
    • Measuring the intraocular pressure on a contactless tonometer
    • Examination of the front eye segment on biomicroscope
    • Examination of the eye fundus
    • Schirmer test (measuring the quantity and quality of tears)
  • What is a cylinder?

    Cylinder is a type of glass that is used in correcting astigmatism. As astigmatism is a diopter on one axis only (whether in plus or minus), that diopter should be corrected on that axis only. That is to say, the glass that corrects the diopter on one axis only is referred to as cylinder. This is actually the longitudinal section of the roll. Glasses that correct the plus diopter are convex lenses (cross section of the ball), and those that correct the minus lenses are concave lens (they have a cavity).

  • How can an increase in diopter be prevented?

    The increase in dioptre is genetically dependent and there is no specific way of preventing it. According to some theories, prolonged periods of working up close (computer, studying) may accelerate an increase in diopter with the persons who are predisposed to some diopter.

  • Eye vitamins?

    We recommend taking eye vitamins for people who have degenerative changes on eyes (these changes are usually linked with aging or with some eye diseases such as high myopia, congenital diseases of macula). In such cases vitamins are either a supplementary therapy with the basic therapy or as there is no basic therapy we wish at least to try to slow down the degradation of the cells. Vitamins exert a protective action against harmful compounds of metabolism.
