When you schedule our eye exam in Pelham Gardens, you’re making the decision to take charge of your eye health and to ensure your best possible vision. Common eye diseases, which include glaucoma and cataracts, can occur in anyone, no matter your age, medical history, or heredity. More importantly, they form and progress with no symptoms that would serve to alert you to seek eye care. By the time you discover a degree of vision loss or damage to your eyes, it is because the disease has reached an advanced stage. And while treatment options are available, you may not be able to recover the vision you already lost or repair the harm that has been done. Here at Park Professional Eyecare, we make it a point to diagnose any eye diseases before they reach that critical juncture. But we need your help to do it. You have to make the appointment.
Our eye exam in Pelham Gardens is also about helping you to see your best. If you’ve never worn or needed eyeglasses or contact lenses before, this may be the right time for you to benefit from what they have to offer. Sometimes, your vision becomes slowly weaker and you don’t even realize that you’ve been struggling, straining, or squinting. Even if you’re seeing okay, well that’s not as good as having outstanding vision, is it? You can get that with prescription lenses.
Even if you already wear contacts or glasses, you might be due for an update to that prescription. Your vision is in a constant state of evolving. So the lenses that were perfect for you a year ago might not be now. That’s what our eye doctor finds out during our eye exam in Pelham Gardens. If you do wear glasses or contacts, be sure to bring them with you as you will be tested with and without.
In addition to glaucoma and cataracts, you will be screened for other eye diseases as applicable. Among them are diabetic retinopathy if you are type one or type two diabetic; and macular degeneration if you are over 40. Our eye exam in Pelham Gardens can also reveal valuable clues to issues outside of your eyes. Your retinal blood vessels may indicate the presence of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes.
