Regular eye exams are extremely vital to your overall health and comfort. Many people think that eye exams are only important if you need vision correction or if your vision capabilities have noticeably changed, but this is not the case. Here at Oneway Eyeglasses, we offer more than just vision correction options and prescriptions. Our optometrist, Dr. Cynthia Yeager, can provide you with a thorough eye exam here at our Powdersville optometry office to make sure you show no signs of eye disease.
Glaucoma is one such eye disease that is screened for during a regular eye exam. Glaucoma causes damage to the eye’s optic nerve, getting worse as times goes on. This condition is often inherited genetically and is associated with a buildup of pressure in the eye. Though glaucoma may show up later in life if inherited, it is never certain when any inherited conditions will begin to take hold. It can also be caused by other means, such as blunt injury, any chemical injury or damage, severe eye infection, blocked blood vessels to the eye, or inflammatory conditions, among others. This particular condition can cause permanent vision loss within a few years if not properly diagnosed and treated during its early stages. Regular exams allow for optometrists, such as Dr. Yeager, to monitor your eye health and assess any symptoms you may be experiencing. An exam can help determine the presence of such conditions even if no symptoms are present. If you have any family history of glaucoma, or have experienced an eye injury of any kind in the past, then begin scheduling your annual visits here with us at our Powdersville optometry office to monitor your eye health.
An annual visit here at Oneway Eyeglasses can help save your vision. Regardless of whether or not you have a family history of glaucoma or have suffered from any previous injuries, it is still important to schedule a yearly eye exam. Though any medical history should be taken into consideration, any condition can befall anyone. Visit Dr. Yeager here at our Powdersville optometry office to make sure your optical health is always at its best.
