Woodbury NY Best Eye Doctor
If you cannot remember the last time you had a comprehensive vision exam, or want to have a specific type of eye testing, you will want to see our eye doctor at Optics Plus. At our vision practice, patients can get comprehensive eye exams, contact lens exam and fittings, and eye testing. They can also purchase eye wear all under the same roof. The next time you need an eye exam in Woodbury, we hope you will visit us at Optics Plus.
It is very important that all of your family members have eye exams on a periodic basis. Our eye doctor will be able to tell you how often you should have such an eye exam in Woodbury – the timeframe will depend on your age, medical situation, and current eye health. There are many eye diseases and disorders which show no obvious signs in the early stages. However, eye diseases that are not diagnosed and treated early will proceed to a point where they do permanent vision damage. For this reason, it is very important to have eye exams on a regular basis. For example, glaucoma shows no symptoms in the early stages; however, if it is allowed to progress until optic nerve damage is done, the patient will not be able to have this vision restored. When glaucoma is diagnosed early through a comprehensive eye exam at our practice, our eye doctor will be able to provide you with medicated eye drops. This medication should ensure that your good vision remains intact.
During the first part of our eye exam in Woodbury, your eyes will be tested for their visual acuity. If it is determined that you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, our eye doctor will be able to write a lens prescription for you which will have you seeing clearly once again. If you want to wear contact lenses, you will be happy to know that today just about anyone can wear contact lenses – even if you have astigmatism or problems with dry eyes. During our eye exam in Woodberry, your eyes will be screened for many different eye diseases and disorders. Among the vision problems that our eye doctor will check your eyes for are: glaucoma; cataracts; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; dry eyes; retinal tears; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. There are many eye conditions which our eye doctor will be able to treat you for. If you need advanced eye care, our optometrist will be happy to refer you to an ophthalmologist who specializes in your needed area of care. We hope to be seeing you soon at Optics Plus!
