Most people are aware that they should see the doctor at least once a year to catch anything starting to go wrong or to get an objective opinion about aspects of their health they can improve. As people get older, the frequency of eye exams should increase. Regular eye exams provide our optometrist the opportunity to diagnose and treat conditions before vision loss is allowed to occur.
Eye exams are incredibly low-cost given the number of health benefits they provide. In many cases, they can identify issues that can be addressed effectively with early treatments. The screenings allow our optometrist to check for a range of eye problems. When an eye doctor finds the early signs of an issue, early intervention can make a world of difference versus finding out about the problem five or ten years later when it is too late for effective treatment.
Several eye problems can be identified through regular eye exams. One condition commonly detected by our eye doctor is age-related degeneration. This condition becomes more and more noticeable as the years go by, eventually making it hard to read or see distant objects. Our eye doctor can help track this condition and reduce the strain on the eye with eye care, glasses or contacts, and eye drops. Other issues like glaucoma can also be identified and addressed. These conditions and more can lead to permanent vision loss, and it is important to be checked for them regularly.
Digital Retinal Photography
This is an advanced procedure utilizing a highly specialized retina camera to detect diabetes, hypertension, age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal holes or detachments, and more. It’s highly effective at finding more complex conditions that might escape a general review by an eye doctor. Due to digital retinal photography, you can rest easy knowing you are receiving the most accurate diagnosis possible. If you need to have your vision corrected, we will consider your medical needs, lifestyle, and personal fashion preferences when matching you up with the perfect pair of eyeglasses or contact lenses.
