Just because your eyes do not seem to be giving you any trouble doesn’t mean that you should skip your annual visit to the optometrist. A thorough examination of your eyes provides the optometrist with a chance to assess the health of your retina, the multi-layered sensory tissue that lines the back inside wall of the eyeball. In the event a tear is discovered, which can occur without trauma or noticeable symptoms, it must be repaired. In addition, other conditions, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, can be detected through changes exhibited in the eyes well before they manifest symptoms elsewhere in the body. If you wear glasses or contacts, prescription updates are also very important.
Some vision problems exhibit few, if any, symptoms until well advanced. Can you recall when you last had an eye examination? We can determine whether your vision problem is the result of an eye problem or a general health condition. Diabetes, blood pressure, and circulation problems can affect vision. We will thoroughly examine in the internal and external parts of your eyes for signs of eye or body diseases.
P.S. To help avoid computer-related eyestrain, try reducing the brightness level on your computer screen.
