Protect Your Vision with Routine Eye Care
Taking care of your eyes is crucial for your overall health and well-being at every stage of life. This includes routine eye care and annual exams with the team at Physicians Eye Clinic.

Routine eye exams can also identify other health issues like hypertension and diabetes, which may initially manifest through eye problems. Early detection and treatment of such conditions can save not just your eyesight but also your overall health.

Comprehensive Eye Exams To Diagnose and Treat Eye Conditions
Routine eye care is an essential aspect of maintaining healthy eyesight. There are several components involved in a comprehensive eye exam. First, your provider will review your medical history, including medications or conditions, and discuss any vision concerns you currently have. Then, your provider will check visual acuity, or the ability to see clearly at a distance and up close.
A comprehensive exam also includes checking for signs of infection or disease, such as glaucoma or macular degeneration. Finally, your provider might make personalized recommendations based on the exam results, such as the need for glasses or contact lenses, changes to current vision correction methods, or referrals to specialists. By prioritizing routine eye care, individuals can help prevent vision problems and maintain clear and healthy eyesight for years.
Screening for Common Eye Diseases
At Physicians Eye Clinic, we understand eye disease can be scary. We screen for common eye diseases, such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.
Part of routine eye care is evaluating the eyes for symptoms of these conditions regularly. While the signs of eye diseases are unique, you should also remember that some eye conditions are asymptomatic in their early stages. Many common eye diseases can go unnoticed for years before causing problems with your vision. An experienced provider can help identify these conditions early to help preserve your vision and overall health.
Early Detection Helps Protect Your Vision
Regular eye exams are essential to early detection and critical for protecting your vision. It is never too early to start seeing an ophthalmologist for an annual eye appointment, even if you are young or not currently living with vision concerns. Caring for your eyes early on can prevent potential eye problems from developing later in life.
Many eye conditions, including cataracts and glaucoma, are associated with aging, but taking steps to maintain healthy vision can reduce your risk of developing these conditions. In addition, if you have a family history of certain eye diseases, starting a healthy eye care routine sooner can help you identify and treat any issues before they become more serious.
