From treating and monitoring eye disorders, to yearly medical eye exams, we can ensure your loved ones the best care possible with respect and dignity.
Reasons why you should have a Yearly Medical Eye Exam:
- Routine eye exams are vital for the detection of vision loss and eye diseases before a resident is even aware a problem exists.
- Often, there are no symptoms or pain in the early stages of eye diseases and disorders.
- Early treatment can help slow or reverse vision loss in many cases.
- The longer the medical eye care is delayed, the more the damage is done.
- Many times, vision loss is so gradual, the resident is unaware until it is too late.
- A person with diabetes can have bleeding in their retina, causing permanent damage, and have no symptoms.
- Approximately 45% of Americans diagnosed with diabetes have some stage of diabetic retinopathy.
- If you are a diabetic, you have a higher risk of developing glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy.
- Undetected loss of vision can also cause confusion or depression.
- A visual field test can detect central and peripheral vision problems caused by glaucoma, stroke, and other eye or brain issues.
- At least 50% of those with glaucoma are unaware of their condition.
- Approximately 61% of Americans require some form of vision correction.
