We believe that there is much more to a comprehensive eye exam than just an accurate glasses prescription.
The nature of the eyes and visual system is such that many conditions can produce very similar symptoms. For example, blurred vision can be caused by something as benign as uncorrected refractive error or as serious as uncontrolled hypertension, diabetes, or even a brain tumor. Therefore, during our comprehensive eye and vision exam, we thoroughly evaluate the function and health of the eyes and total visual system to obtain ample information to diagnose the cause of signs noted by our doctors or symptoms reported by our patients.
In addition, potentially blinding conditions such as glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy may cause no symptoms until they are far advanced and the damage is irreparable.
