Keeping Your Vision at Its Best
At Oviedo Vision Center, our focus is on your overall health and how it contributes to a lifetime of clear vision. If your eyes aren’t performing at their best, we take the time to accurately evaluate your eyes to best understand the cause of your vision problems.
Our technology helps us precisely detect and diagnose eye conditions so we can provide you with a treatment plan to prevent further, irreversible damage. Visit us for an in-depth exam and prioritize preserving your vision.
Risks of Developing Eye Disease
When we talk about taking care of our health, your eyes should be included in the conversation. Taking care of your eye health and visiting your optometrist for a comprehensive eye exam is essential in the longevity of clear vision.
You may be at a higher risk of developing an eye disease if:
- You’re overweight or obese
- You have a family history of eye disease
- You have other health conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure
When you take care of your overall health, you take care of your eyes, too. Eating healthy, staying active, and quitting smoking are all ways you can help preserve your eye health.
Common Eye Diseases We Monitor For
A regularly scheduled comprehensive eye exam is the best way to monitor for signs of eye disease. Early detection is essential to reduce the risk of permanent damage to your vision and eye health. Using our diagnostic technology, we can identify several eye diseases.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye disease that causes the loss of central vision. It occurs when the macula, the part of your eye responsible for detailed central vision, wears down over time.
There are 2 main forms of AMD:
Cataracts occur when the natural lens in your eye becomes cloudy. The lens in your eye is responsible for focusing on objects near or far. If you develop cataracts, it can become increasingly difficult to see clearly.
Better lighting or prescription changes can help you deal with the early symptoms of cataracts. If it worsens, cataract surgery is an available option. Cataract surgery removes your natural clouded lens and replaces it with a clear, artificial one.
Diabetic retinopathy occurs when blood glucose levels are consistently high, causing damage to the blood vessels in the retina. The damaged blood vessels affect the light-sensitive tissue that sends signals to the brain.
This eye disease can eventually lead to blindness. Oviedo Vision Center offers diabetic eye exams to effectively monitor the health of your retina. By managing blood glucose levels, you can decrease your risk of diabetic retinopathy.
Glaucoma occurs due to damage to the optic nerve, causing irreversible peripheral vision loss. During your comprehensive eye exam, we’ll test for signs of glaucoma by measuring the internal pressure of your eye. High pressure can be a sign of this ocular disease.
