If you cannot remember the last time you had an eye exam, you should contact our office, Glenn Roter, OD, for a comprehensive eye exam. During our eye exam you will have complete Rhodes Ranch eye testing to make sure that your eyes are healthy, and to make sure that your optical prescription is up-to-date.
When a patient comes to us for a comprehensive eye exam and Rhodes Ranch eye testing they will have a complete eye exam which screens our patients for many different eye diseases and disorders. Perhaps surprisingly, many serious eye diseases show no obvious symptoms in the early stages. This means that there are many people who do not know that they have eye diseases which can end up stealing their vision. For example, if a patient has glaucoma that has not yet caused symptoms, a person can be going about their everyday life without even knowing that they have this disease. Luckily, eye diseases can be detected during our eye exam. If found, our optometrist will most likely be able to provide treatment with prescription eye drops which will control the patient’s intraocular pressure. However, if the person does not come in for an eye exam and the glaucoma is allowed to progress, our patient may end up with permanent optic nerve damage which cannot be reversed. This is just one reason why you will want to come in for your annual eye exam. During our eye exams your eyes will be screened for many different eye diseases and disorders including: glaucoma; diabetic retinopathy; macular degeneration; cataracts; dry eyes; retinal tears; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. Your eyes will also be screened to make sure you do not have any refractive errors such as astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness. These refractive errors can be easily corrected with the use of prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses.
