Comprehensive Eye Exams:
Periodic eye and vision exams are an essential part of preventive health care. Many eye and vision issues have no obvious signs or symptoms. As a result, people are often unaware that issues exist. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision issues are important for maintaining good vision and eye health, and when possible, preventing vision loss.
Contact Lens Exams:
Contact lenses are thin plastic lenses placed directly on the surface of the eyes to correct visual defects that allow you to see without wearing eyeglasses. In most cases, contact lenses are used as a substitute for eyeglasses, allowing you more freedom to enjoy physical activity. Contact lenses may also be used to treat certain eye diseases or may be used for cosmetic purposes to change the apparent color of your eyes. A thorough contact lens exam is required annually in order to continue wearing them and assure the health of your eyes.
LASIK is a laser eye surgery used to correct refractive errors of the eye. Patients usually opt for LASIK when they tire of wearing corrective lenses, such as contacts or eyeglasses. Although there are no guarantees for treatment, the vast majority of LASIK patients report monumental improvements in their vision, many with 20/20 or better.
Glaucoma is a term used to refer to a group of eye diseases that ultimately cause damage to the optic nerve. Unfortunately, there is no cure for glaucoma, but there are treatments available to help manage the condition and prevent vision loss. People with glaucoma often experience slow and gradual vision loss that is so subtle, it is virtually undetectable until it reaches advanced stages. Glaucoma often presents no other symptoms than vision loss, which is why it is essential to visit your optometrist periodically for comprehensive eye exams. As the disease progresses, it can cause eye pain and nausea, as well as total vision loss.
Cataract Evaluation and Testing
Cataract is a disease of the eye that results in the clouding of the lens of the eyeball. Cataracts prevent clear images from appearing on the eye’s retina causing mild, moderate, even severe blurred vision. Typically an eye disorder associated with aging (over 50% of the people in the U.S.A. over the age of 80 have either had a cataract or cataract surgery).
