Understanding vision

When consulting Eye Care Professionals, you're in good hands. They should know how to guide and advise you all the way to the prescription and spectacles that optimally meet your needs and preferences. However, to understand and actively take part in decisions along the way, it's good to know the basics and understand vision.
