It is very easy for people to take their good eye for health granted. However, it is very important that people have periodic eye exams to make sure they do not have any hidden eye diseases or disorders. Most people believe that if their vision seems fine, then it is. However, the truth is that many eye diseases show no obvious symptoms in the early stages. Yet, these diseases can be permanently harming your vision without your even knowing it. One such disease is glaucoma. Even though a patient usually is not aware that they have glaucoma when it is first starting, the disease can be causing permanent damage to their eyes during this time. But if this same patient has a comprehensive eye exam at our practice, and the glaucoma is diagnosed early, our optometrist will be able to easily treat the glaucoma and help ensure that no eyesight is lost to the disease. This is but one reason why you want to come to our Clear Eye Center for an Irving eye exam.
At our vision practice, our expert and highly trained optometrist is Dr. Paul Heeg. Whether you need a comprehensive Irving eye exam, or other eye care, our optometrist will be able to make sure that you have healthy eyes and clear vision. It is wise to have a comprehensive eye exam on an annual basis. During the first part of our eye exam, our optometrist will check your eyes for any refractive errors. If it is determined that you are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism, our eye doctor will be able to write a contact lens prescription, or eyeglass prescription for you, so that you will be able to see clearly and crisply once again.
During the eye exam, our optometrist will also screen your eyes for many different eye diseases and disorders. During the course of the exam your eyes will be screened for: glaucoma; diabetic retinopathy; cataracts; macular degeneration; dry eye; and other problems of cornea, macula, and retina. If a problem is discovered by our optometrist, he will be able to treat you accordingly. If it is determined that you need advanced treatment by an ophthalmologist, our eye doctor will be able to refer you to an expert ophthalmologist in the area who specializes in the area of treatment that you need.
