Our Las Cruces optometrist will be able to accurately diagnose any eye problems you may have.

It is very important that you have vision exams on a periodic basis. Our Las Cruces optometrist will be able to let you know how often you should have your eyes examined, based on any existing vision problems, and on your general medical health. There are many serious eye diseases, such as glaucoma, that show no symptoms in the early stages. However, glaucoma can be diagnosed before symptoms are obvious, during our regular eye exam. If it is found that you have glaucoma, our optometrist will be able to treat and monitor your condition for you. You will most likely be treated with medicated eye drops which are self-administered by the patient. This easy treatment will allow you to keep your excellent vision, and you will not need to lose any sight to the disease. However, if glaucoma is left undiagnosed, you run the risk of permanently losing vision to this serious disease as it advances. This is just one reason why it is important to have periodic vision exams. For an appointment to see our optometrist in Las Cruces, contact us today.
