Your Eye Health Depends on Regular Eye Exams
Most of us will experience changes in our eyes and vision as we age. Conditions such as presbyopia and cataracts are a normal part of the ageing process and can impact your vision as they progress.
Regular eye exams allow your optometrist to ensure that your prescription is up to date, detect, and track small changes in your eye health, and address any concerns or questions you may have.
Sudden or unexpected changes in your vision may be symptoms of eye disease or another serious condition. If left untreated, these problems could steal your sight. To help safeguard your vision, Erie Shores Eyecare uses advanced diagnostic and monitoring techniques, as well as cutting edge technology, to assess your vision and eye health. This allows us to detect, slow, and even prevent eye disease-related vision loss.
During Your Exam
To begin your exam, we will discuss any questions or concerns you may have and review your medical history to ensure it is up to date. During the exam, we will perform a variety of tests to confirm your prescription is current and ensure your eyes are healthy.
If we detect any signs of eye disease or other vision-related problems, we will work with you to create a customized management or treatment plan to protect your sight.
