With our eye exams in Brighton
, we at Family Eyecare of Brighton will make certain that your eyesight is the best it can be and also screen you for the most common eye diseases, making the well-being of your eyes a high priority. We recommend that you see our optometrist every year. Seeing just okay isn't good enough and any damage to your eyes or loss of vision is unacceptable if it can be prevented.
Maybe you've never had reason to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses before. Okay, but how well are you seeing right now? If you have to struggle to see road signs or the menu behind the counter in the coffee shop, the answer is not well enough. Do you have blurred vision when reading or when working at your computer or headaches that can might be associated with eye strain? This might be the right time for you to take advantage of what our corrective lenses can offer you. And if you do currently wear prescription eyewear, you might benefit from updating them. Our eye exams in Brighton
utilize a variety of tests in order to diagnose nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, presbyopia, or some combination of these typical vision concerns.
Testing your vision, though, is only one vital part of our eye exams in Brighton
. Cataracts and glaucoma are just two of the eye diseases for which we will screen you. Both of them can occur in anyone, regardless of your age or other circumstances. A baseline test, such as tonometry for glaucoma will help in determining if additional ones need to be taken to form a definite diagnosis. With cataracts, it's a slit-lamp test. Macular degeneration is an eye condition that is applicable only to those 40 and older, while diabetic retinopathy can affect anyone with type one or type two diabetes. Any eye diseases that could impact you will be tested for. It's important to note that the diseases mentioned do not have any obvious symptoms until they have progressed to a more advanced stage. This is why it's so important to detect them early. So call us and schedule your eye exam. Your eyes deserve it.
