Hi guys! Here’s sharing with you my eye care experience with Philip D Izaac Optometrist & Contact Lens Clinic, a family of optometrists and qualified eye care practitioners with solid years of experience. I was served by Roland J Izaac, a respected and well-known senior optometrist to Philip D Izaac. As I stepped into the clinic, I was greeted by friendly staffs with wide smiles and great enthusiasm. I felt welcomed and excited as I see the wide range of fashionable and quality eyewear all around me. Roland was very professional and patient as he brought me into the room for a thorough eye check.
While checking my eyes, most of my previous experiences with other optical shops took a short time, but Roland was very detailed, careful and accurate as he asked me questions and took the necessary measurements. My eye exam was made complete with Roland. Unlike my previous experiences, he took additional steps and checked my eye health and cornea using specialized instruments before proceeding to the usual eye degree check. The whole process took about 45 minutes.
I was impressed with the various instruments that can accurately diagnose any possible problem in your eyes. They are painless and do not cause much discomfort. It has dawned on me that having your eye health screened for glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, etc is an important first step that most other optical shops would usually skip. Most of them proceed directly to check the degree of your eyes and prescribe the lenses without checking your eye health first.
Their diagnostic services include refraction, glaucoma screening, diabetic screening, visual fields analysis, topography, optical coherent, tomography analysis, binocular vision evaluation, cerium lenses for Irlen’s syndrome and dyslexia.
Their contact lens services include soft lenses, disposable lenses, gas permeable lenses, bifocal contact lenses, orthokeratology lenses, special custom designed lenses for diseased corneas e.g. keratoconus.
I felt that Roland double checked and reassured me that my eyes are healthy first before he proceeded on further to fit me with the most suitable lenses and spectacles for the perfect vision. I was spoilt for choices as I browsed through the entire collection of spectacles frames available in the clinic, from the basic ones to the branded ones. I tried on multiple designs with different colors, sizes and shapes and finally decided on the Gucci one.
I chose a high quality lens and I can feel the instant difference to my visual comfort. When I look at things or read from a near distance, it’s not overly sharp or bright and when I look at things from afar, it’s still clear and not blurry. My lenses are 1.67 index, transition and with blue protect. They are specially designed by Shamir and are called Smart SV. This is an aspheric design that allows for even thinner lenses and ensures distortion free areas even in the periphery of the lens. This lens must also be fitted accurately with additional measurements taken into account for the lens to provide optimal vision. This is by far my most comfortable lens ever because my eyes do not feel so tired or strained easily even after wearing it for the entire day.
In fact, during the moment when I put on my new spectacles, I was pleasantly surprised that it fitted me very well and I did not need any time to adjust and get used to the feel of the new spectacles. Unlike my previous experiences, I did not feel even the slightest giddiness or over brightness in my new spectacles. I instantly adapted to it! It’s as though I’ve been wearing the spectacles for the longest time in my life but in actual fact I only started wearing it minutes ago. My vision became crystal clear and I do not need to squint my eyes anymore. It was an amazing experience. Thank you Roland. I’m so going to love my new spectacles for the rest of 2019!!!!!!!!!!!!!
