These conditions may require us to prescribe medications and to monitor you closely for any changes that may threaten long term eye health.

Careful examination of the inside part of your eyes is extremely important in the detection and treatment of diseases such as:

  • Glaucoma
  • Cataracts
  • Detachments of the Retina
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Tumors of the eye

 

Likewise, a number of general health conditions have a high risk for serious eye complications. If you have any of the following, we recommend annual eye examinations to monitor for complications:

  • Diabetes
  • High Blood Pressure
  • High Cholesterol
  • Blood disorders such as Anemia or Sickle Cell
  • Arthritis
  • Stroke
  • Thyroid Disease

 

Unfortunately, many eye diseases only produce symptoms late in the process once permanent damage has taken place. Proper and thorough eye examinations on a yearly basis are the best way to detect issues early and prevent permanent vision loss.
