The Importance of a Yearly Eye Exam
People generally remember the importance of receiving a physical exam at least once a year. However, annual eye examinations often get missed, and patients will let their eyesight and eye health go unchecked until conditions turn into more serious issues. After the age of 40, it is essential to stay on top of your eye care since vision can rapidly deteriorate past this age. At Optometric Images in Dublin, we help our patients preserve their clear vision and eye health with annual eye exams.
Keeping Your Vision in Check with an Optometrist
Our vision tests use state of the art equipment to determine if prescription lenses are needed and how strong they need to be. Eye functioning tests aim to reveal how accurately your eyes recognize things like depth perception, color, and whether they respond to light correctly. An exam also takes a look at things like peripheral (side) vision, eye muscle strength and eye alignment. Eye pressure is also always measured and we can diagnose eye diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration in their earliest stages.
The power of an eye exam does not end with just diagnosing problems with eye and vision health. It can also lend clues to potential problems with a person's general health, leading to referrals to their primary care provider for further care. Our eye doctors re8ularly diagnose diabetes and identify autoimmune diseases, blood pressure issues and even cancer.
Early Detection of Dangerous Eye Diseases
Many diseases that can compromise vision loss often do not show early symptoms. These include macular degeneration, cataracts and glaucoma. The longer a condition is left untreated, the harder it is to alleviate symptoms. Our experienced staff can identify many potential problems that can rob you of your vision and eye health.
We Can Help with Vision Correction and More
Eye care does not end with getting a diagnosis or status update on a chronic condition. We will then work with you to make you a prescription that treats your specific vision issue. You will be able to see clearly again with the help of glasses, contact lenses or even Lasik eye surgery. We offer a wide range of treatments at our office.
