Keeping up with your health needs is essential. Of course it is important that you make sure to see a doctor in the event of an emergency or other sort of development, but it is also important that you keep up with routine exams and checkups, too. This applies to a variety of different aspects of your health, including your eye health. Here with Glenn Roter, OD you and everyone else in your family can get the comprehensive eye exams in Spring Valley that you need every year using advanced instruments and state of the art equipment that can ensure the most accurate and informative eye exam possible.
Looking after your eye health is more important than you may think. In general, it is widely recommended that people of all ages have their eyes examined at least once a year. Many people tend to overlook their eye health because they don’t think routine checkups are necessary or worth the money. While some people may be at a greater risk of eye disease than others, anyone can develop an eye disease or other condition. Additionally, did you know that an eye exam can tell you whether you have diabetes or high cholesterol or not? Eye exams can tell you a lot about your general health and well being in addition to your eye and vision specs. Here at the offices of Glenn Roter, OD we use the most advanced, state of the art equipment, such as the reichert digital vision chart, in order to ensure as accurate of an eye exam as possible. With the right equipment, eye diseases and other issues can be caught even during their earliest stages. With regular eye exams in Spring Valley, Dr. Roter can effectively monitor and maintain your eye and vision health, catching any issues before they pose major problems.
The most dangerous part about eye diseases is that they do not often yield obvious signs or symptoms outside of an eye exam during their earlier stages and may not become apparent until vision damage or vision loss has already begun to occur. Here at the offices of Glenn Roter, OD you can be sure that your eye health is in good hands, especially with routine eye exams in Spring Valley.
Spring Valley optometry
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.
