Importance of regular eye check ups

 

In children

Many times, children will not complain of vision problems simply because they don't know what "normal" vision looks like.

If your child performs poorly at school or exhibits a reading or learning problem, be sure to schedule an eye examination to rule out an underlying visual cause.

 

For adults

During a comprehensive eye exam, your eye doctor will not only determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, but will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.

 

 

There are many eye conditions that can be diagnosed and treated by an opthalmologist:

  • Lazy eye

  • An imperfection in the curvature of the eye that causes blurred distance and near vision (Astigmatism)

  • Cloudy lens (Cataracts)

  • Cancer of the eye 

  • Pink Eye, an eye infection

  • Problems of the cornea

  • Damage to the optic vessels of the retina as a complication of diabetes

  • Dry eyes which could be caused due to a lack of water or oil in the tear film

  • High eye pressure

  • Vision problems that require the use of spectacles

  • Macular degeneration, the degradation of the macula

  • Presbyopia, a condition characterized by inability to focus due to aging

  • Retinal Detachment which can lead to loss of vision

  • Strabismus, an eye movement disorder
