Eye Health Evaluation
Your comprehensive eye examination is so much more than just getting your prescription for glasses or contact lenses! Our doctors will also perform a thorough health evaluation from the front to the back of your eyes. When examining the ocular structures at the front of your eyes, our doctors will determine if issues such as dry eye or poorly fitting contact lenses need to be addressed. The measurement of your intraocular pressure is an important screening for glaucoma. Having your pupils dilated allows clear visualization of the lens, optic nerve and retina. This allows our doctors to check for conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal holes and macular degeneration. If you are diabetic, our doctors will take an especially careful look at your retinas to determine if diabetic retinopathy is present.
Treatment of Eye Disease
If you are diagnosed with an eye disease, you want only the best treatment available to get your eyes healthy again. At McPherson Family Eye Care, we offer only the best. Based on your diagnosis, we may recommend a wide variety of approaches, including improved nutrition, prescription medications, medical procedures, or a referral to an appropriate specialist. We have a special interest in the management of chronic conditions such as dry eye and glaucoma.
Good Eye Care Begins With A Yearly Eye Exam!
Although many do not realize it, the best way to protect your vision is with a yearly eye check-up. Conditions such as glaucoma, early macular degeneration and mild diabetic retinopathy do not cause any symptoms and can only be detected during a comprehensive eye examination. We will closely examine your medical history, any medications that you may be taking, and your family history to advise you of any potential factors that may put your ocular health at risk.
