Corona Eye Exam
Think about how deeply you depend on your eyes and your vision each day. How would you drive, read, work, and manage all of the other important activities of your day without your eyes functioning properly? Many of us take our eye health and vision for granted, not realizing that we should be taking preventative measures in order to keep our eyes and vision in good shape for the future. One of the most important ways to preserve your vision and keep your eyes in the best health possible is to visit our eye doctor at Lens Lab Express for a Corona eye exam.
Our eye doctors practice at the highest level of licensure, which includes providing comprehensive eye exams, eye disease testing, prescribing medication for eye problems, and even suggesting vitamins to keep your eyes healthy. When we examine your eyes, our vision experts use the most modern examination equipment available to ensure an accurate and efficient examination and diagnosis. Each patient will be evaluated with state-of-the-art computerized equipment, which includes a refraction slit lamp, intraocular pressure, and a retinal exam. Your comprehensive Corona eye exam will also test visual acuity, eye tracking and focusing skills, as well as detect problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, amblyopia, crossed eyes, dyslexia, and color blindness. Our caring eye doctor will also check for eye disease during your eye exam, as well as assess how your eyes work together, and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health. In addition to helping detect developing conditions, regular eye exams are also important to check on how your vision is functioning. Thanks to our state-of-the-art computerized equipment, all this information will be digitally recorded so that we can assess how your eyes are changing over time. If you use prescription contact lenses or eyeglasses, you should especially be visiting our optometrist for eye exams so that you can be sure your current optical prescription is up-to-date, and that your eyeglasses and/or contact lenses are functioning correctly and comfortably.
Once your annual exam is completed, our vision experts will be able to give you an updated prescription and any recommendations for treatments or at-home care as needed. While you should always visit us if you are experiencing symptoms, annual eye exams are just as important even if you are not having specific symptoms at the time. Many of the most common and potentially dangerous eye conditions, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration develop in a manner so gradual and slow that many people are completely unaware of there being a problem until the disease is advanced enough to have done significant damage to the eyes and vision. It’s best to be proactive with your vision care, and even better to schedule your state-of-the-art Corona eye exam with Lens Lab Express today.
Eye exam in Corona
Getting your eyes checked once per year is important for promoting optimal vision, but it’s also vital for your eye health. At Lens Lab Express, our eye exam in Corona is designed to screen you for common eye diseases such as glaucoma. You can’t simply wait around until you notice something is wrong because as with most eye diseases, you won’t notice any symptoms that indicate the presence of glaucoma until it has formed, gone through its early stages, and has begun to cause some level of eye damage or loss of vision. But with an eye exam, we can catch glaucoma before it has had a chance to cause any injury, some of which may not be reversible.
Glaucoma is a condition in which an excessive amount of pressure inside your eye exists. The reason for this is because of an imbalance between the amount of fluid your eye creates and the amount that it drains. Without sufficient drainage, fluid levels build up and along with it, the pressure inside your eye also increases. Left unchecked, this can eventually cause damage to your optic nerves. Vision loss is possible and in the worst case scenario, even blindness can occur. But with our eye exam in Corona, you can avoid such complications.
In order to detect glaucoma, the first test administered will usually be tonometry. This measures the level of internal eye pressure and so is a key indicator that glaucoma may exist. Depending on the results of that test, others may be performed to form a definitive diagnosis. Your peripheral vision will probably be gauged and photos may be taken of your optic nerve along with other tests as needed. And because changes happen in your eyes over time, our eye exam in Corona should be part of your health care strategy every year.
Treatment options for glaucoma depend on how advanced the disease is and how much, if any, damage has resulted from it. Eye drops might do the job in mild cases, reducing the amount of fluid your eyes produce. On the other hand, laser surgery can increase your eyes’ ability to drain fluid. Microsurgery works by creating a new channel from which your eyes can drain fluid more effectively. With our eye exam in Corona, it is our goal to catch any signs of glaucoma early on and be able to manage it with the simplest solution possible.
Are you looking for a new way of seeing clearly? While eyeglasses can be one of the simplest ways of achieving clear vision, they are not always the right choice for everyone. Fortunately, the latest advances in optical technology make it easier for more people today to achieve clear vision with the use of eyeglasses than ever before. Contact lenses exist in more types and styles today, so much so that certain lenses can actually treat multiple vision problems. The first step in deciding which contact lenses are the right choice for you is with a Jackson Heights contact lens exam at the state of the art practice of the Lens Lab Express.
Contact lenses work entirely differently than your eyeglasses due in order to correct your vision problems. Optical conditions occur due to imperfections in the shape of your eyes. Perfect vision can only be achieved by eyes that are a perfect sphere. Any alteration during growth causes light to refract poorly into the eye. When this happens, vital information is lost in transit, resulting in blurry vision at certain distances. While eyeglasses work to refract the light properly back into your eyes, contact lenses work to change the shape of your eyes back into a perfect sphere for clear vision anywhere you look, without ever being restricted by the shape of your frames. As contact lenses work in an entirely different manner than eyeglasses, a special type of examination is needed in order to determine your unique contact lens prescription. Your contact lens examination includes increased testing for your optical health which works to insure that your eyes will work comfortably with your new contacts. Dry eyes from a syndrome or the environment can cause problems with comfortable wear that can be remedied by special eye drops designed uniquely for contact lens wearers from your eye doctor. Most importantly, your Jackson Heights contact lens exam works to measure the exact shape of your corneal curvature. This measurement works to determine the prescription of the lenses as well as insuring a perfect fit. Every exam comes complete with a contact lens fitting to help you put in your new lenses, as well as insure that the style you have chosen is perfect for you.
For the very best in Jackson Heights contact lens exam, be sure to visit the experts at the welcoming offices of the Lens Lab Express. We utilize our on-site laboratory to craft your optical wear with expedient care and at affordable prices, with offices hours open seven days a week and walk-ins always welcome for you anytime you have a moment for optical care.
