Preventative Eye Care and Vision Correction

Posted on Saturday, January 28th, 2017 by Dr. Binoy Jani

All types of preventative medical care are important in maintaining health and limiting the risk of disease; this is just as true of preventative eye care and vision correction. Too often we wait for symptoms to appear before we seek the advice of a medical professional. The wiser approach is the preventative approach which looks for signs of problems before they become symptomatic.

Annual Eye Exam

One of the best way to protect your vision and eye health is to schedule an annual eye exam that is comprehensive in scope. At Vista Eye Specialists, a comprehensive preventative eye care exam will include several tests and exams that can provide early detection of many issues. Our comprehensive vision exams include:

  • Depth perception check
  • Pressure measurement for glaucoma
  • Detection of blind spots
  • Diagnosis of astigmatism, farsightedness, nearsightedness and presbyopia
  • Exterior eye structure exam – cornea, iris, conjunctiva and upper and lower lids
  • Interior eye structure exam – macula, retina, optic nerve and the overall interior
  • Discussion of vision correction options – glasses, contacts, Lasik and more

The annual preventative eye care exam can be critical in early detection and treatment of diabetic eye disease and glaucoma which can be so damaging to a person’s eye sight. The professionals at Vista Eye Specialists are also able to detect conditions like corneal ulcers, cataracts and macular degeneration. The earlier these conditions and eye diseases are detected the more effective the treatment and vision correction can be.

Vision Correction for Children and Adults

Annual eye care exams are important for individuals of all ages. Our eyes can have dramatic changes in aging adults that can affect clarity of vision while driving or reading. For school age children, vision problems can be a big factor in their learning environment if they are not diagnosed and have vision correction prescribed.

Don’t put off preventative eye care. Schedule an annual eye exam for yourself and members of your family at Vista Eye Specialists, today.
