Eye exams are highly recommended once a year. Like any other physical or checkup, eye exams are good to keep up with annually to make sure that everything is in check and to stand a better chance of catching any potential issues as early as possible. Here at West U Vision, we offer comprehensive eye care for those in need of routine checkups, but we also provide care for a number of other reasons, too. If you have an eye health emergency, our Houston optometry staff is here to take a look at the problem and provide you with the proper care.
Aside from routine visits, there are plenty of things that may constitute an eye related emergency. As soon as you notice anything out of the ordinary, it is important that you seek medical attention as soon as you can so you can find out the course as well as the best course of action. The sooner you get treatment, the more likely you’ll be able to preserve and protect your eyesight and your overall eye health. Some common symptoms to look out for include blurry vision, eye redness, eye itchiness, floaters, headaches, sudden vision loss and eye strain. Blurry vision can happen gradually, which is often the cause of changing vision needs, which can also cause headaches. But sudden blurry vision should be cause for concern, too. Symptoms like redness, itchiness and discharge can be signs of an infection, allergies, or even an infection following an eye injury. Sudden vision loss and floaters may be signs of retinal tears or detachment, and all cases require immediate Houston optometry. Here at West U Vision, our optometrists Dr. Castillo and Dr. Rockoff can examine your eyes, determine what is causing your symptoms, and make sure that you get the care you need to recover.
