Eye Exams Fort Apache Road

Eye examinations are an important part of health maintenance for everyone, even those who don’t require vision aids. In addition to evaluating your eyes for glasses and contacts, Las Vegas optometrist, Dr. Glenn Roter, will check your eyes for eye diseases and other problems that could lead to vision loss. Here are some examples of the conditions that Dr. Roter will be looking for:

Refractive error. This refers to nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Refractive errors are corrected with eyeglasses, contacts or refractive surgery.

Amblyopia. This occurs when the eyes are turned or when one eye has a much different prescription than the other. The brain will “shut off” the image from the turned or blurry eye. Left untreated, amblyopia can stunt the visual development of the affected eye, resulting in permanent vision impairment. Amblyopia is often treated by patching the stronger eye for periods of time.

Strabismus. Strabismus is defined as crossed or turned eyes. The examiner will check your eyes’ alignment to be sure that they are working together. Strabismus causes problems with depth perception and can lead to amblyopia.

Eye teaming problems. Even if you eyes appear to be properly aligned, it’s possible they do not work together efficiently as a team. Suchbinocular vision problems can cause headaches, eye strain and other problems that can affect reading and other near vision tasks.

Focusing problems. These problems can range from incompletely developed focusing skills in children to normal age-related declines in focusing ability (presbyopia) among older adults.

Eye diseases. Many eye diseases, such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, have no symptoms in their early stages. Your eye doctor will check the health of your eyes inside and out for signs of early problems. In most cases, early detection and treatment of eye diseases can help reduce your risk for permanent vision loss.

Other diseases. Eye doctors can detect early signs of some conditions and diseases by looking at your eye’s blood vessels, retina and so forth. Your eye doctor may be able to tell you if you are developing high blood pressure, high cholesterol or other problems.
