Many serious eye diseases do not show any obvious symptoms in the early stages. For this reason, it is very important that you come into our vision practice, Your Eyecare & Contact Lens/Johnson, for a comprehensive eye exam on a yearly basis. Our Las Cruces eye doctor, Dr. Andrew D. Johnson, will be able to provide you with an eye exam which not only checks your eyes to make sure they are in excellent health, but also precisely measures your eyes for any type of vision correction you may need.
When you come to our office for an eye exam, our Las Cruces eye doctor will first screen your eyes for any refractive vision problems. If it is determined that you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, this can be corrected by a lens prescription which will be written for you by our eye doctor. Today, almost all patients are able to wear contact lenses to have their vision corrected, even if you have astigmatism or are diagnosed with dry eye. During our eye exams, our eye doctor will also examine your eyes for many different eye diseases and disorders. Among the many diseases that your eyes will be screened for are: glaucoma; cataracts; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; dry eye; retinal tears; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. If it is determined that you need advanced eye care, our optometrist will be able to refer you to an ophthalmologist in the area who specializes in your area of need. If you want to get contact lenses, our eye doctor will also measure your eyes for the curvature of your cornea as well as the size of your iris. It is very important that contact lenses fit your eyes precisely so that they will be able to provide you with optimal vision, and so that they will not damage your cornea while they are being worn.
