Preventing Blindness and Vision Loss
Losing any of your senses can cause a dramatic change in your life. That is why you must not delay in getting your eyes checked when you believe you are having vision problems. Our eye disease doctor is able to test your eyes to make sure they are healthy or to make sure they are on the path towards healing if there is an issue with them.
There are several conditions that can result in vision loss or eye disease including diabetes, hypertension, sarcoidosis, Lyme disease, and various types of cancer. In addition, there are many types of eye diseases that develop due to age. These diseases include glaucoma, cataracts, dry eyes, and macular degeneration. Whether you’ve never experienced serious health problems or you have a chronic health problem, it’s important to get regular eye disease exams to ensure that there are no early symptoms of eye disease.
It’s possible to prevent many types of eye diseases by monitoring your general health and staying on top of treatment for any chronic conditions you have. Hypertension and diabetes can lead to serious vision problems like glaucoma, cataracts, and retinopathy – all of which can lead to blindness. By seeing your doctors regularly and scheduling annual eye disease tests with our clinic, you can reduce your risk of developing these serious problems. Whether you suspect you have an eye disease or it’s simply time for your annual checkup, reach out to our eye disease doctor to schedule an appointment with our team.
