Healthy Retinas, Healthy Life

May is Healthy Vision Month at Eye Medical Clinic

Taking care of your eyes is as important as eating a healthy diet and taking part in regular physical activity. To help keep your eyes healthy for a lifetime, have an annual comprehensive dilated eye exam. It’s the best way to find out if you need glasses or contacts, or are in the early stages of any eye-related conditions or diseases.

This month and every month, the experienced professionals at Eye Medical Clinic want to help you and your loved ones See Every Moment with the vision you deserve. A comprehensive eye exam at Eye Medical Clinic goes way beyond a basic eye exam and will include:

  • a visual acuity test to measure how sharp your vision is
  • a motility exam to see how well your eyes work together and to rule out strabismus (crossed eyes)
  • refraction to determine your best corrected vision prescription
  • tests to assess your risk for developing glaucoma
  • pupil dilation to help detect cataracts, macular degeneration and other serious retina conditions

Retina Conditions Can Steal Your Sight

There are a number of conditions that affect the retina (diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and retinal detachments are the main ones) and need to be diagnosed and treated by an experienced retina specialist. Sometimes, flashes of lights and floaters in your vision are harmless and nothing to worry about, and at other times, they can be an early sign of a problem that needs careful and timely attention to preserve your vision! A retina specialist has the additional training and expertise to diagnose and treat a host of conditions relating to the retina.

“You can reduce the risk of developing many retina conditions by having an annual dilated comprehensive eye exam.”
