Eye Health 101

Eye Health & Disease

Unlike the rest of our body, the eyes rarely hurt when something is wrong. Eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and conditions caused by diabetes and high blood pressure usually present with no visual symptoms in the early stages. Overtime, though, they can cause permanent damage to our eyes. A comprehensive eye examination checks the internal and external health of your eyes, checks for disease and does a refractive visual analysis to see if a change to your prescription is necessary. For children, a regular eye exam can help determine if the eyes are developing properly. If there is a problem that goes untreated it can lead to learning disorders and vision loss.
