Let’s look at some of the quality eyecare services that you can find in Tucson at Advanced Vision Care and Dry Eye Spa.
Routine Eye Exams
A routine eye exam should be a part of your regular yearly health care. If you have vision issues that require corrective lenses, it is important to get a vision checkup to make sure that your vision is 20/20. Your optometrist will perform some simple tests to determine whether there have been any changes since your last visit. We will also check the pressure in your eyes and look for other signs of eye disease.
Glasses and Contact Lenses
Your optometrist can also provide glasses and contact lenses that can correct your vision. Once the exam is complete, if there are changes, you will get to choose your new frames or get an order for newly updated contact lenses. As you age, your vision changes, and additional changes may be needed to ensure proper vision.
General Eye Care
Your eyes are the window to the world and keeping them healthy and happy is vital. Many things, including excessive screen time, can cause your eyes to become dry and uncomfortable. An optometrist can provide advice and suggest treatment as well as provide a prescription for artificial tears.
Glaucoma is an eye disease that can cause blindness. It is an increase in interocular pressure in the eyes caused by improper drainage of the eye fluid. Lowering the pressure in the eye is vital to keeping the optic nerve healthy. This can be done with eye drops in most cases and careful monitoring. Getting regular yearly eye exams is important when it comes to glaucoma. In some cases, more aggressive treatments may be required, such as laser treatments or surgery.
A cataract is a cloudy spot that develops on the lens of the eye. Your optometrist will check your eyes for cataracts. Cataracts can take years to get to the point where they need to be removed, and new lenses put in. In the meantime, they need to be monitored. A cataract can make driving at night difficult, which may be the first indication that one is growing. Your optometrist will keep an eye on you and let you know when the time is right for cataract surgery.
