Medical Eye Examinations.....a look at your eye health

Eye Health Services

As vision care specialists,  we diagnose many eye conditions.
In general you can think of them as:

  • the ones you see
  • and the ones you don't

Now you see it

These are a few (of the easy to recognize) conditions you may notice yourself

  • "Pink Eye"
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Retinal Detachments (if and only if they are symptomatic!)
When your vision, or the appearance of your eyes changes suddenly it is easy for you to know that you need to see the eye doctor.

Now you don't

These are some (of many) of the conditions you will probably not notice yourself

  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Retinal Detachments
When your vision, or the appearance of your eyes does not seem to be changing you may be fooled into thinking "your eyes are just fine". It is less easy to recognize eye health problems that occur over a longer period of time,  such as days,  weeks,  months, or  years,  especially since many eye health conditions may not have any symptoms to alert you to their presence.  

That is why we recommend yearly eye examinations,  even if you feel you are are not having problems,   and if you feel that something is changing,  but you are not sure,  it is better to be cautious,  and have us take a look.
