Healthy adults should have routine eye exams annually to ensure healthy eyes that last a lifetime. With modern diagnostic technology, we have the ability to diagnose eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration up to 10 years earlier than in the past. Our modern digital lifestyles can lead to dry eye disease and all adults will be screened for preventable issues down the road. Your doctor will also talk to you about lifestyle and nutrition factors to reduce the risk of eye disease. Contact lens wearers will also have their eye health assessed and upgraded to new lenses as technology continues to improve.
Remember that vision and eye health are unrelated, so even if your eyesight has not changed, this does not necessarily mean that your eyes are healthy. Observation of changes over time are the best way to monitor and prevent serious eye disease as you get older. Our specialized diagnostic imaging equipment can track these changes, allowing us to initiate any required treatments or prevention strategies at a much earlier stage than ever before.
