Adult Eye Exams
Our office is equipped with state of the art technology to assist in the diagnosis, examination and treatment of all ocular conditions. All of our doctors are trained to check the ocular health of the eyes and always perform full and comprehensive examinations. Cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, strabismus, diabetes, hypertension and dry eyes are just a few of the conditions that are routinely investigated during the eye exam. And, of course, a new prescription for glasses and contact lenses will be made for you at the time of your exam.
Patients looking to reduce or eliminate their dependence on contact lenses should begin with a refractive consultation. We can look at the eye’s errors and assess how well refractive surgery will improve vision if patients choose to see it through. We will also check to see if you have any contraindications, including inadequate corneal thickness or dry eye.
If you’re over 60 and are experiencing changes in your vision, you might have cataracts. Symptoms often include:
- Glare or Haloes Around Light Sources
- Blurry Vision
- Yellowing of Colors
- Skewed or Double Vision in a Single Eye
If you have some or all of these symptoms, we can perform a cataract evaluation to see what’s causing your vision problems. If you do have cataracts, then you don’t need to worry, because cataract surgery today is greatly improved over methods from 20+ years ago. Modern cataract removal methods make cataract surgery one of the safest and most effective procedures in modern medicine, restoring and improving vision with an extremely low risk of complications.
Glaucoma is a dangerous disease that acts slowly and can cause permanent and irreversible blindness if left to its own devices. We can determine whether or not you have glaucoma, and we can provide you with a number of treatment options to treat glaucoma if you do have it. Although there is no cure for glaucoma, it can be treated effectively enough to prevent vision loss for the vast majority of patients.
