Routine Eye Care Protects Your Vision
Even if your eyes seem fine, an eye exam can uncover eye health problems you may be unaware of. Many eye diseases develop with no early symptoms and are some of the leading causes of blindness in the US.
Regular eye exams help protect your vision from these dangerous eye diseases. At The Classical Eye, we’ve established an extraordinary standard of care by investing in advanced diagnostic technology that allows us to detect even the earliest signs of eye disease. Every eye exam, for children or adults, includes testing for common eye diseases.
Common Eye Diseases
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that cause permanent, irreversible damage to the optic nerve. There are many types of glaucoma, most of which are associated with elevated internal eye pressure (IOP).
Glaucoma often progresses slowly and with no warning signs. Although vision loss associated with glaucoma is unrecoverable, it can be slowed or prevented if glaucoma is diagnosed early.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration
As the name suggests, AMD is often associated with the aging process and is the leading cause of vision loss in those over 50. Those who smoke and have a family history of AMD are at a higher risk of developing AMD.
Because AMD causes central vision problems, it doesn’t lead to complete blindness. But it can make detailed daily activities, like reading, writing, driving, or recognizing faces more difficult.
Conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye, is the inflammation of the conjunctiva, the transparent membrane covering the eyes and inner eyelids. The pink color is caused by the inflammation of the tiny blood vessels in the conjunctiva, making them more visible.
Pink eye can be irritating, but treatments can help you find relief. Because pink eye is commonly caused by a viral or bacterial infection and is highly infectious, early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent spreading it to others.
Knowing pink eye symptoms can help you understand when to see your optometrist:
- Eye redness
- Itchy eyes
- A gritty feeling in one or both eyes
- Discharge from one or both eyes
- Excessive tearing
