The best eye care begins with a routine yearly examination. A basic examination is a brief and painless way of detecting such health threatening conditions such as tumors, vascular irregularities, and diabetes-related injury to the retina.
Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress with no symptoms. At first you might not notice any change in your vision. However, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, as well as other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure, can be detected with a thorough exam of the retina. The retina is the part of your eye that catches the image of what you are looking at, similar to the film in a camera.
A Visual Field test is an integral part of your eye exam. You have the opportunity to view and discuss the results of your test with your doctor at the time of you examination.
