We all think of eye examinations as a way to measure our vision and prescribe corrective lenses if necessary, but a comprehensive eye exam from our Annapolis retina office is so much more. The human eye is subject to many diseases and disorders that can develop overtime. You may not feel or see anything out of the ordinary now but many serious eye problems take a long time to develop to the point that you begin to notice a problem. Eye disease, such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, presbyopia and others can develop over time with no symptoms until they have reached an advanced stage when treatment options are limited and less effective. Comprehensive eye exams can diagnose these ailments when they are still in an early stage of development and the treatment options are more effective. An eye exam can also help spot some diseases that aren’t usually thought of as being associated with the eyes but have tell-tale signs that should be picked up during a comprehensive eye exam at our office. Conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and Graves Disease, which effects the thyroid gland can manifest themselves during an eye exam giving you warning that more medical testing needs to be done by your primary care doctor.

Since your eyes are constantly changing an annual exam is the best way to monitor both your vision, which may change from year-to-year and the presence of any other eye and general medical conditions. Our Annapolis retina office uses the latest equipment and technology to perform the annual to ensure that your family’s eyes stay in tip-top condition. So bring your family into our office for an eye exam.
