If you are experiencing blurry vision, it is vital you visit your eye doctor to ensure your eyes are in good health, and that it is not an underlying symptom of a more serious condition. Although your blurry vision may be due to something as simple as general near- or far-sightedness, it could also be the early signs of an eye disease that can cause further vision loss. A visit to the Spring Valley optometry office of Glenn Roter, OD will help determine and treat whatever the cause of your blurred vision may be.
Our main focus is providing full-scope optometric services with an emphasis on total eye care for the whole family. This ensures that no matter the cause of your blurry vision, our team of eye doctors will be sure to remedy it. This may be done as simply as prescribing and fitting you for new eyeglass or contact lenses. If your eyes require more attention than just a new prescription, you’ll be happy to know that our doctors are board certified to diagnose, treat, and manage diseases and disorders of the eye with the use of therapeutic and pharmacological agents. For example, our Spring Valley optometry office provides our patients with an advanced digital retinal exam that is able to screen for eye diseases that may cause blurry vision, such as macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma. In fact, glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness, so it is important to receive a retinal exam to be sure this is not the cause of your blurred vision. The goal of any treatment is to prevent loss of vision, as vision loss can be irreversible. Surgery can be an incredibly effective treatment option for your eye disease. Eye drops, pills, laser surgery, traditional surgery, or a combination of these methods may also be used to treat your eye disease. Laser treatments, for example, can be utilized for precise treatment and quick healing. However, it is best to consult our doctors first to best decide on a treatment plan right for you.
Early diagnosis and treatment can minimize or prevent optic nerve damage and limit disease-related vision loss. It’s important to get your eyes examined regularly by our eye doctors at our Spring Valley optometry office. So even if your vision is blurry, it is clear where you should go for your eye care; call the office of Glenn Roter, OD today to schedule an appointment.
