Comprehensive eye examinations are an invaluable tool in maintaining optimal vision. At the office Dr. Sheldon Cowen, we provide specialized vision care that extends far beyond your eyes to include your health and wellness, and even your lifestyle. Our optometrists at our eye care office all practice at the highest level of licensure, which includes providing comprehensive Seattle eye exams, eye disease testing, prescribing medication for eye problems, and even suggesting vitamins to keep your eyes healthy.
Our complete eye examinations allow us to accurately detect eye disease or other abnormalities early, often before they present any symptoms. Early detection in many cases can lead to treatments that will prevent vision loss. Some diseases develop slowly without causing pain or vision loss. Early detection of any problems can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options. Our team of eye doctors and eye surgeons believe that you should be well informed and educated about your vision care. Therefore, during your Seattle eye exam, we’ll explain the purpose of the equipment we use so you can become more comfortable as well as knowledgeable about your eye care and health. When we examine your eyes, our eye doctors and eye surgeons use the most modern examination equipment available to ensure an accurate and efficient examination and diagnosis. The entire exam process can take an hour depending on the complexity of the problem. Each patient will be evaluated with a refraction slit lamp, intraocular pressure, and a retinal exam. Personalized to you, no two eye examinations or eyewear prescriptions are the same. Our eye doctors and eye surgeons will consider your stage of life and take the time to learn about your goals, lifestyle, general health, and eyewear needs and preferences. Each of these elements impacts your eye health.
It is mission of our eye doctors and our eye surgeons to preserve, restore, and enhance your vision. Our comprehensive eye exams and eye testing services are one of the best ways to ensure proper eye health. Healthy eyes and a healthy body go hand in hand. At the office of Dr. Sheldon Cowen, when it comes to your eye health, we look at the big picture. But we never lose sight of you in it. Please call our eye care office or consult our website for further information regarding Seattle eye exams and comprehensive eye care, or to schedule an appointment with our eye doctors or eye surgeons.
