Comprehensive Eye Exam
Your eye care begins with a comprehensive eye examination in which our doctors look for evidence of eye diseases including glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration. In addition, screening is performed for health problems affecting the eyes, including signs of diabetes or hypertension, thyroid disorders, and elevated cholesterol. Vision issues such as farsightedness, nearsightedness and astigmatism are routinely evaluated during a comprehensive exam.
Diabetes may affect the eyes in the form of diabetic retinopathy. Early detection and treatment of diabetic retinopathy can help to prevent vision loss. If you have Diabetes, it is extremely important to have an annual screening examination.
Dry eye is a condition in which an individual does not produce enough tears, or the tears are of poor quality. Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the surface of the eye and for providing clear vision. Dry eyes may cause discomfort as well as blurred vision.
Glaucoma refers to a group of eye diseases which may cause damage to the optic nerve. In many cases, this is associated with high pressure in the eyes. A person with high eye pressure is generally not aware of it, just as one may not be aware of high blood pressure. For this reason, it is very important to be screened for glaucoma, which is part of a comprehensive eye examination. Glaucoma is most often treated with topical medications, though laser or surgery is occasionally needed to fully control eye pressures.
Macular degeneration is the most common cause of serious vision loss in those over the age of sixty. It occurs when the central part of the retina, the macula, degenerates. There are two forms of macular degeneration, the dry form, which is more common, and the wet form, which is characterized by leaking blood vessels. Both forms can lead to loss of central vision. Treatment for macular degeneration may include the use of vitamins, medication injections, and laser therapy.
