Comprehensive Ophthalmology

Many people don’t get their eyes examined regularly unless they are experiencing obvious problems. Many eye diseases, however, have few or no warning signs until they’ve taken away some or all of your vision—at which point it may be too late. Diagnosing eye disease as early as possible gives you the best chance of saving your sight.

Top reasons to have an annual eye exam are:

To uncover hidden disease

Experts suggest that regular eye exams can aid in the early detection of diseases such as high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, strokes, kidney problems, brain tumors, and other general health conditions.

To detect and prevent eye disease

Early detection is the key to your healthy vision. Because many serious eye diseases have no symptoms, regular eye exams allow your doctor to monitor your vision and help prevent possible blindness. Once your vision is lost, it cannot always be restored.

To preserve your healthy vision

Checking your prescription on a regular basis ensures you are seeing as clearly as possible. Your eyesight affects everything you do, including driving, working, studying, playing sports and more. Maintaining proper eyesight enhances your quality of life.

To maintain your general well-being

If you suffer from frequent headaches or fatigue, the solution could be as simple as changing your prescription or the design of your eyewear. For example, if you work on a computer and have trouble focusing, or if you have burning, tired or sensitive eyes, you may have computer vision syndrome (CVS), which can be treated with specially-designed eyeglasses.

Ophthalmology FAQs

Many people aren’t sure whether to see an optometrist or ophthalmologist for the eye care services they need. The following ophthalmology FAQs from Texas Eye Surgeons in Plano and Greenville clarifies the difference between the two so you can make wise eye care decisions.

Both optometrists and ophthalmologists perform eye exams and write prescriptions for eyeglasses to correct vision problems. An ophthalmologist, however, has additional medical training that enables him to diagnose, manage, treat, and perform surgeries for eye disorders and diseases. If your optometrist detects an eye disorder or disease during a routine eye exam, he may recommend you see an ophthalmologist for management and treatment.

Regular eye exams are the key to maintaining good eye health and quality vision. Early warning signs of eye diseases and conditions can be detected in a comprehensive eye exam. The sooner these diseases are treated, the less risk of their causing permanent vision loss.

Children with refractive errors should see an eye doctor annually while those with 20/20 vision can schedule eye exams every two years.

If you have a history of eye conditions or diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, you should schedule annual eye exams to monitor your eye health.

Adults between 20-40 years of age should see an eye doctor every two years, unless they’re having vision or eye health problems. After the age of 40, we recommend annual eye exams as preventative care against eye diseases.

If you’re squinting, blinking, or rubbing your eyes frequently, it’s good to have your eyes checked by your Plano/Greenville ophthalmologist. Other signs include constant headaches, abrupt changes in your vision, eye irritations, or eye pain. It’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to preservation of your vision.
