If your eyes are feeling fine, you probably don't give a lot of thought to their health, and that makes sense. But you should definitely have a comprehensive eye exam once per year, regardless. At the practice of Dr. Sheldon Cowen, our goals are to make certain that any issues with the wellness of your eyes is addressed right away, and that any need you have for vision correction is met with a prescription that represents the very best you can see.
Your vision is changing all the time. The changes may not be dramatic, but over the course of a single year you can go from your eyeglasses or contact lenses being ideal to them just being adequate. What if you find yourself squinting or your reading material looks fuzzy? This can happen even with corrective eyewear. Well, an update to your existing prescription may be just what you need, and that can be determined with our eye exam in Seattle
. Likewise, if you've never needed corrective lenses before, you might want to consider whether that should still be the case. Sharp and clear vision enhances everything you do. Our eye exam in Seattle is also for screening you for eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and cataracts. Symptoms are not noticeable for these conditions until they have become advanced, and by the time you do experience something being amiss, you could have reached a point of no return when it comes to physical damage to your eyes (optic nerve injury, hemorrhaging, etc.), as well as vision loss. Early detection is closely associated with the best result from the appropriate treatment and management options.
