Regardless of your age or present physical health, routine eye exams are very important. Not just for the health of your teeth and gums but for your overall health and well-being. A comprehensive eye exam determines so much more than a prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses. The doctors who perform eye exams at Optical Visit in New Rochelle assess the overall health of the eye and detect any changes that may indicate a vision disorder or any problems that could lead to vision loss. During a routine eye exam, our New Rochelle eye doctors will evaluate your eyes for common conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, crossed eyes and diagnostic testing is also conducted for glaucoma. Once the exam is complete and an accurate diagnosis reached, the doctor will develop the best treatment based on the results. This treatment plan can include a prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, medication, eye vitamins, vision supplements, certain vision therapies or surgery for more serious conditions.
Regular eye exams and early detection are necessary in treating and preventing eye problems and New Rochelle eye exams at Optical Visit use the most up to date information and equipment to keep your eyes healthy and strong. Doctors stress early detection and believe children should have their first eye exam at 6 months old. Of course, if a parent suspects something is wrong a licensed optometrist or ophthalmologist can do an exam even earlier. Normal vision development and basic visual skills are especially important for children because if eye problems go undetected it can affect their scholastic achievements.
Routine eye exams at Optical Visit are important no matter how young or old you are, however, because many times eye doctors are the first healthcare provider to detect high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. Our New Rochelle optometrists can detect these conditions by looking at blood vessels in the eyes for any abnormalities. Adults should also be tested regularly to keep their optical prescriptions current and to check for early signs of eye disease. Be aware and don’t ever substitute a vision screening for a full diagnostic eye exam as many abnormalities can go undetected.
