Routine eye exams often reveal ocular problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia, and sight blurring astigmatism. Your doctor can prescribe corrective spectacle eyewear and/or contact lenses. Other eye conditions, along with a myriad of conjunctivitis syndromes and red eye or pinkeye, lid inflammation, dangerous glaucoma, dense cataracts, diabetic and hypertensive retinopathy, and macular degeneration are carefully screened for by our eye physicians.
Provide good light for reading, work, or study (Ex: soft background light plus a light on your task).
Avoid glare and other distortions on TV and computer screen. Position your TV or computer screen where less light will reflect off the screen. Use special non-glare screens that fit over the computer screen.
Wear proper eye protection & safety equipment for hazardous tasks. Use UV-blocking sunglasses to safe guard your eyes from excessive ultraviolet light. Too much UV exposure can damage your retina and cause lasting severe vision damage and increase the risk of cataracts.
We highly recommend getting regular routine comprehensive vision exams from an eye doctor annually.
