Supporting Healthy Eyes & Vision
Your eyes help you view the things you love most in your life. Visiting for an eye exam is your opportunity to check the health of your eyes, ensuring you can keep seeing what you love.
Even if you don’t think your vision has changed since your last visit, eye exams are valuable for the health of your eyes. In many cases, eye exams are one of the only ways to identify eye diseases before they cause damage.
When Should You Have an Exam?
Visiting for regular eye exams is one of the best ways to manage your eye health and vision. To best support your eyes, the American Optometric Association recommends regular eye exams.
During your eye exam, our team will assess your visual acuity (how well you see) and refraction (how well your eyes focus light). These tests can help us determine if glasses or contact lenses are needed to correct vision issues. In addition to our visual and eye health tests, we offer specialty services for our patients.
Our specialty eye care includes:
Detecting Eye Diseases Early
Routine eye exams are your best defense against eye disease. Your eye doctor will test for many common eye diseases, but learning the signs and symptoms can help you find peace of mind in between trips to your optometrist.
Cataracts are the clouding of the eye’s lens, causing blurred vision. They can occur at any age but generally form later in life. But, don’t worry—they can be managed early with glasses or contact lenses. However, for proper treatment, the lens must be removed from the patient’s eye through cataract surgery (which is safe and effective).
Glaucoma is a group of diseases that affect the optic nerve. In its early stages, it’s common for patients not to notice any symptoms or damage. If glaucoma isn’t identified and managed early, it can cause vision loss or blindness. Regular eye exams are needed to identify glaucoma early.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) affects the central part of the eye’s retina, the macula, making it hard to focus on objects clearly. Similar to other eye diseases, AMD can go unnoticed without regular eye exams. AMD is the leading cause of vision loss in people over 50.
As patients age, lifestyle changes may be suggested to prevent or manage AMD. These can include reducing UV exposure, increasing vitamins, and wearing sunglasses.
