Annual Eye Exams. Of all the things you can do you for the health of your eyes, nothing is more important than an annual eye exam. Besides helping you maintain the best vision possible, eye exams can help detect and treat a number of eye ailments before they turn into something much more serious. They can even alert you to general health conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure. That’s why we strongly encourage you to keep up with a regular schedule of eye exams, especially if your family has a history of eye or other health problems. If you like, we’ll gladly send you periodic reminders so that you can stay on a regular schedule of essential eye exams.

Normal Eyes

ec_vision_normal_eye

This image represents an eye that can see up to 20/20.  You may notice that it is almost perfectly round allowing the image to appear correctly on the focal point of the eye.

Nearsightedness

ec_vision_nearsighted_di

Also known as Myopia, causes poor distance vision. If your eye is too long (front to back), or if your cornea has too much-focusing power, images focus in front of the retina.

Farsightedness

ec_vision_farsighted_diAlso, know as Hyperopia. Distant objects are clear and close-up objects appear blurry. This condition is the result of an eye that is too short or a cornea that lacks the necessary refractive power to focus.

Astigmatism

ec_vision_astigmatism_di

Astigmatism is a vision condition that causes blurred vision due either to the irregular shape of the cornea, the clear front cover of the eye or sometimes the curvature of the lens inside the eye. An irregular shaped cornea or lens prevents light from focusing properly on the retina.

Glaucoma

ec_vision_glaucoma_diGlaucoma is a specific pattern of optic nerve damage and visual field loss caused by a number of different eye diseases which can affect the eye. Most, but not all of these diseases are characterized by elevated intramuscular pressure, which is not the disease itself, but the most important risk factor for the development of Glaucoma.

Diabetic Retinopathy

ec_vision_diab_retin_diAnyone with diabetes is at risk to develop Diabetic Retinopathy. High blood sugar associated with diabetes can damage blood vessels in the retina causing deposits to form blind spots and floaters in your field of vision. Early symptoms of Diabetic Retinopathy include double vision and difficulty reading or doing close work.

The absence of the above symptoms does not completely rule out the possible presence of these conditions and/or diseases. Only an examination by your doctor can verify their absence or presence.
