Whether you need an eye exam, a new pair of frames, to re-order your contact lenses, or because you are experiencing eye symptoms, we the professionals at West U Vision are here to help with friendly and knowledgeable service and compassionate eye care. Our eye doctor in Houston wants you to see your best and to maintain strong and healthy eyes for your entire lifetime. The cornerstone of that is our comprehensive eye exams, which are recommended for all of our patients once per year. Regardless of your age, your vision needs can change from year to year. So even if you didn’t need corrective lenses last year, you may need them now. Or if you already wear contact lenses or eyeglasses, it may be time to update your prescription. One that is inadequate to what your current needs are is not much better than having no prescription at all.
An eye exam is also essential so you can be screened for common eye diseases. Sure, you may feel perfectly fine, but were you aware that eye diseases typically have no symptoms when they form and even as the progress? It’s true. And by the time you do notice signs, it’s often an indication of damage to your eyes or vision loss that cannot be reversed. This is why it’s so vital to be examined every year. Among the eye diseases that you’ll be screened for by our eye doctor in Houston are glaucoma and cataracts, which can affect anyone at any age. Other diseases are applicable to specific age groups, such as macular degeneration, which occurs in people over age 60. And diabetic retinopathy, as the name indicates, is something that is checked for in patients with type one or type two diabetes.
And if you find you are experiencing any eye symptoms, you should call us right away and schedule an appointment with our eye doctor in Houston. Blurred vision, eye discharge, reddened eyes, eye pain, and any loss of vision are just some of the signs that may indicate a problem that should be addressed. A long term professional relationship will allow us to stay on top of your eye health and catch any potential issues early.
