It is not common that you would schedule an eye exam when your eyes feel fine. What many people do not realize is that many degenerative eye diseases cannot be felt. Glaucoma for example is painless and is often referred to as the sneak thief of sight. Routine eye examinations are important even if our eyes and vision are fine. Let's learn from the past and history of eye disease and encourage regular eye exams and eye care check-ups. It can save vision.

Diabetic eye disease is the leading cause of blindness

It may be no secret to that diabetes is a very serious disease that has widespread affects on various parts of the body and the eyes are one of them. The most common cause of blindness in the United States is diabetic eye disease. In the early stages, when it is most easily treated, diabetic eye disease has no symptoms. The only way for a diabetic to know if he or she has diabetic eye disease is to get routine eye examinations at least once a year. Diabetic retinopathy is a disease that affects diabetic people and eventually leads to blurriness, distorted vision and eventually loss of vision. When people suffer with diabetes they may often have unstable glucose levels and they are prone to circulation problems in the back of the eye, known as the Retina. If you are diabetic our eye doctors will be happy to schedule an appointment to evaluate an impact of diabetes on your vision.

Glaucoma is the sneak thief of SIGHT

Eye ExamsDo you have a family history of glaucoma? If so please schedule an eye exam. Glaucoma is the second most common cause of blindness. Glaucoma is called the sneak thief of sight because it has no symptoms at all until the disease is very advanced. Once vision is lost through Glaucoma, it can never be regained. The only way to know if you have glaucoma is to have a comprehensive eye examination on a regular basis.

Are you over 50 years old?

Macular Degeneration is the most common cause of blindness in this age category. In the early stages of macular degeneration, treatments can be used to prevent the disease from getting worse. Patients typically have no symptoms at all in the early stages so coming in for an eye exam is the last thing on their mind. With busy schedules and the pressures of the modern working environment it’s probably the last thing you would think about. The only way to know if you have early macular degeneration is to have routine eye examinations even if your eyes seem healthy.
