Don’t take your vision and continuing eye health for granted. There can be things going on behind the scenes in your eyes that you are definitely better off knowing. Many very serious eye diseases and disorders develop slowly over time and the only way to detect them before they get serious is through an eye examination. Clarksville eye testing by the doctors here at Quality Optical of Columbia provides area residents with high quality eye care for the whole family that can accurately determine the health of their eyes. Our doctors are highly trained and experienced in the vision needs of your family members at each age or stage of life.
The best way to gauge the health of your eyes is through Clarksville eye testing, which is a comprehensive eye examination using our office’s state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and technology. Each exam actually starts with a conversation. First our doctor will discuss any vision or eye concerns you have, inquire about your health and family health history. Then you will be given a thorough dilated eye exam using a battery of different tests and techniques that can explore every part of your eye and its functioning. Our doctor will measure your visual acuity and prescribe any vision corrections that are necessary. The exam will also assess the present state of your eye health as well as look for any eye diseases that maybe developing. Diseases like glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and many others develop over several years without the patient being aware of it. Fortunately, if detected early their progression can be easily managed or treated, however, if undetected until they have advanced they can cause severe vision loss. Unfortunately, once lost the vision cannot be restored.
Clarksville eye testing is the only accurate way to detect these eye diseases at the early stages. This is why it is not only imperative to get an initial comprehensive eye exam but also to repeat that exam annually. A progressive eye disease can mature a great deal over a year but still not have any discernible symptoms. The eyes are constantly changing both in terms of vision and in their response to aging so annual exams are especially important to adults and particularly seniors. Don’t neglect your eyes come to our office and find out just what is going on behind those beautiful blue or brown or green eyes. You owe it to your vision.
