When it comes to your vision needs, you don't want to take any chances. No matter what you do for a living, you need to be able to see as much as possible in order to reach your maximum productivity.
Standard eye exams are given through a series of tests to determine the need for glasses and to check for any potential problem or disease. An exam should be done on a regular basis to help detect any problems, such as glaucoma, cataracts, high blood pressure, macular degeneration, and diabetes.
We recommend anyone with any of these eye diseases to have their eyes examined at least once a year.
That's why our professional staff takes the time to give you the most comprehensive eye exam possible. We'll use the latest available technology to not only create the right prescription for your needs, but also examine the overall health of your eyes and check for glaucoma, cataracts and other diseases that could impact your vision in the long term.
We'll make sure you have the information you need to make the crucial eye care choices that will determine how you see the world.
Diabetes affects your eyes! According to the American Diabetes Association, 25.8 million children and adults in the U.S. have diabetes, and this disease is a major cause of severe vision loss. Diabetes can cause the blood vessels in the eyes to become weak. This (diabetic retinopathy) can cause leaking of fluid and/or blood into the retinas. Long term uncontrolled diabetic retinopathy can lead to new and weak blood vessels growing into the eye which can cause hemorrhaging, retinal detachment, and/or blindness.
