What makes your practice special when compared with others in the area?
Early Treatment: The American optometric Association and the PA Optometric Association recommend the following guidelines for frequency of eye exams. Children should have their first eye examination by an eye doctor at age 6 to 12 months of age, at age 3, age 5, and every year thereafter. The school’s vision screening do not substitute for a comprehensive examination by an eye doctor. Medical Eye Care: Don’t lose sight of Diabetic eye diseases! Everyone with Diabetes should get a Diabetic retinal exam at least once a year. Diabetic eye disease may include diabetic retinopathy, which is damage to the blood vessels in the retina. This disease is a leading cause of blindness in American adults and may include cataract and glaucoma. Don’t lose sight of Glaucoma! Glaucoma is a group of diseases that can damage the optic nerve in the eye. If left untreated, glaucoma can cause permanent vision loss. Millions of people have glaucoma and do not know it. People with a higher risk to develop glaucoma are: ◾African Americans over age of 40 ◾Everyone over the age of sixty, especially Mexican Americans ◾People with a family history of glaucoma. Glaucoma can be treated with regular use of eye drops or pills to control the pressure inside the eye or eye surgery. Don’t lose sight of Macular Degeneration! Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a common eye disease associated with aging that gradually destroys sharp, central, vision. Ninety percent of all people have dry AMD while ten percent have wet AMD. The greatest risk factor is age, along with Gender (women tend to be at greater risk than men), race (increase in risks for Whites), smoking, and family history. Early detection is important to help preserve vision. Don’t lose sight of cataract! A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s lens that causes loss of vision. A cataract may make light from the sun or a lamp seem too bright, causing a glare. Cataracts are treated with surgery. Cataract surgery is very successful in restoring vision. Don’t lose sight of Dry Eyes! Your tears function to protect the eyes and keep them lubricated and comfortable. Chronic Dry Eye Disease (CDED) is the decline in the quantity and quality of the tears produced. If you have dry eyes disease, you may experience irritation, scratchiness, burning, redness, discomfort, and extreme watery eyes caused by reflex tearing. CDED can be treated with eye drops, vitamins and or punctual occlusion. Contact Lenses We offer discounted contact lense packages daily. Please call our office to inquire.
