Our eye exam in Houston is a lot more helpful to you than just a vision screening. That’s because we do a vision screening, along with testing your eyes to ensure that they are healthy, and to detect the presence of any common eye disease that could threaten them. At West U Vision, we’re committed to comprehensive eye care.
Glaucoma and cataracts are the two eye diseases that many people have heard of. They are universal in the sense that no matter how young or old you are, what your genetic or medical history is, and your ethnic background, they can strike you. That’s bad enough, but what makes the situation more alarming is that these conditions, along with diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration, progress “silently.” That is to say they move through their early stages without any clear symptoms to alert you. By the time you notice that something isn’t right, it’s probably because some eye damage has occurred, or you have suffered a degree of vision loss. And at that point, the best that can often be hoped for is to prevent further damage and loss because it’s probably not possible to reverse what you’ve already experienced. That’s why it’s so crucial to have our eye exam in Houston once per year. Early detection is closely associated with the chances for the best outcomes. You will most certainly also have your vision screened, too. And if it turns out that you need a prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses (or an update to your existing prescription), our eye doctor will write it, and our optical department will fill it for your convenience.
Don’t wait to schedule our eye exam in Houston. Too much depends on it. Contact our office right now and schedule your visit so you can have the assurance of knowing that your vision is as good as it can be, and your eye health is being paid close attention.
