Annual eye examinations are recommended for most adults and children to monitor the changes that may occur in the eye and surrounding structures, and to monitor the overall health of the eye.
Damage from most eye diseases is preventable if discovered and treated early. In adults these include diabetes, high blood pressure, glaucoma, cataracts and damage caused by medication. In children learning in school can be compromised because changes in vision occur quickly. Computer users have additional demands on their vision which will result in fatigue, headaches and eye strain. Often small changes in your prescription can alleviate this stress.
VisionHealth Eyecare has always kept up with advances in technology that assist in the diagnosis and care of our patients’ vision and eye health. VisionHealth Eyecare: Employs the use of automated computer equipment (including the Marco Autorefractor and the TRS 5100 refraction system) to help establish prescriptions. Our visual field mapping helps screen and detect diseases of the eye and neurologic system.
Photography is used to take a picture of the inside of the eye, establishing a baseline for future exams so that changes are more easily detected. This “fundus’ or “retinal’ photography documents the progression – or non-progression – of eye diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal vascular disease, of diabetic retinopathy, as well.
VisionHealth Eyecare is one of the few area practices to offer much of this technology.
