Caring For Your Vision

To support your vision and your eye health, regular eye exams are needed. Even if you don’t think your vision has changed, or you aren’t experiencing any issues, exams are still important. During an eye exam, we can detect issues before they become severe and damage your eyes. 

It’s recommended that adults from ages 18–64 have an eye exam at least every 2 years. For those ages 65 or older, annual exams are recommended

Why Are Eye Exams Important?

No matter your age, eye exams are one of the best ways to ensure your eyes are healthy. Since many eye diseases can go unnoticed, regular eye exams are crucial. If we detect any issues during your exam, we’ll provide treatment recommendations.  

Your eye exam is your opportunity to bring forward any vision issues you have. Before and throughout your exam, we encourage you to ask any questions you have. 

During your exam, we’ll often check the following:

Common Eye Diseases

Eye diseases can often be undetected until they cause serious damage to your eyes. In most cases, an eye exam is the only way to identify these issues early. If caught early, treatment options can be more effective.

The following eye diseases are just a few that we’ll test for during your exam:

Cataracts

Cataracts are often identified when the normally clear lens of the eye begins to cloud. This clouded lens can make objects appear blurry, hazy, or less colorful. Cataracts can be caused by other medical conditions, such as diabetes.

If serious enough, your clouded cataract lens may need to be removed and replaced with an artificial one through surgery.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is caused by a problem with your retina, more specifically the macula. Damage to this area of the eye can limit your central vision, restricting your ability to focus on objects. 

AMD is the leading cause of vision loss in people 50 years of age and older.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of diseases that targets the optic nerve. The damage of glaucoma is typically caused by fluids building up in the front of the eye, creating extra pressure on the optic nerve. If untreated, glaucoma can cause vision loss.
