The purpose of our eye exams here at Your Eyecare & Contact Lens/Johnson is not simply to do a vision screening, although that will be performed. It’s also to check on your eye health, which is under threat of some of the more common eye diseases; ones that are symptom-free during their early stages. Why take unnecessary chances with your eyes? A simple visit to our office once per year is all it takes to be proactive.
Our Tortugas optometry is equipped with everything required to diagnose nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia, which are all refractive conditions that prevent you from seeing your best. Fortunately, all it takes to change that is a pair or corrective lenses as prescribed by our eye doctor. Our eye exam is where it is determined what prescription is most suited to your needs. It is not uncommon for people to be pleasantly surprised with just how much better their vision is with the proper corrective eyewear. And even if you have glasses or contacts right now, if they’re over a year old then they might be ready to be updated, accounting for changes in your vision since then. Regarding the physical health of your eyes, our Tortugas optometry does not want you to suffer with any preventable vision loss or to experience outcomes like optic nerve damage or retinal blood vessels hemorrhaging. The common eye diseases are glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. And with timely detection followed by prompt treatment, better outcomes can usually be anticipated. Speaking of which, your retinal blood vessels, under examination, may also reveal the early signs of diabetes or high blood pressure, therefore giving you a head start in seeking care from our primary doctor.
At our Tortugas optometry, eye exams are comprehensive. So contact our office and we will book a time for you to come in and have your annual visit.
