If you cannot remember the last time you had an optical exam, you will definitely want to make an appointment to come see our eye doctor for eye disease testing and an eye exam. It is very important to have periodic eye exams because there are many eye diseases and disorders which show no early symptoms. For this reason, many people will have an eye disease and not even know it. In the case of an eye disease such as glaucoma, it can be easily treated with medicated eye drops if caught in the early stages during an eye exam. However, if a patient has glaucoma and they do not have it diagnosed early, the eye disease may go on to affect the optic nerve and cause permanent vision problems. This is just one reason why Scarsdale eye testing is so important.
At our vision practice, Optical Visit, patients are able to receive an eye exam from our expert optometrist, Dr. Ellen Cutler, or purchase great designer eyeglasses. At our practice we specialize in children’s eyeglasses and children’s eye exams as well. During the first part of your eye exam, your eyes will be tested for their visual acuity. If it is determined that you are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism, our optometrist will be able to provide you with a lens prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, which will have you seeing clearly again. During our eye exam, you will also have Scarsdale eye testing for many different eye diseases and disorders.
Among the many eye diseases that are screened for during our comprehensive eye exam are: glaucoma; cataracts; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; dry eyes; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. If it is determined that you need any type of advanced eye care, our therapeutic optometrist will be happy to refer you to an ophthalmologist who will be able to provide you with the advanced eye care that you need. However, our therapeutic optometrist will be able to treat you and manage many different types of vision problems, including early glaucoma. Our therapeutic optometrist is also able to provide you and your family with eye care in many different types of situations, including problems with eye infections or red eye.
