Like The American Optometric Association, we recommend scheduling an appointment once a year to ensure your eyes remain healthy. If you have been diagnosed with an eye condition, we recommend scheduling a comprehensive exam once or twice a year, depending on the severity.
This exam encompasses:
Airis Eye is equipped and ready to handle your emergency eye conditions. If you find yourself in an urgent eye-related emergency, we offer a variety of services to treat your condition and provide quick relief.
Eye emergencies are best diagnosed through a proper examination. If you’re experiencing pain, discomfort, or changes in vision, give us a call to ensure that you’re seen as quickly as possible.
Nowadays, most people prefer to wear contacts instead of glasses. If you are interested in contact lenses, please let your eye doctor know prior to your appointment. During your exam, we will discuss the various contact lenses available and determine the best option based on your individual needs and lifestyle.
Diabetes is the number one cause of preventable blindness. It is of utmost importance for diabetic patients to have yearly comprehensive exams to rule out diabetic retinopathy. A letter will be sent to your medical provider monitoring your condition.
Macular degeneration is a deterioration of the central portion of the retina, the inside layer of the eye that records the images we see and sends them through the optic nerve from the eye to the brain for processing. The macula, or the center of the retina, is responsible for focusing central vision in the eye and controls our ability to see and process information.
Cataracts, another age-related condition, cause the eye lenses to become cloudy and thick and can affect your ability to see clearly. As you grow older, it’s important to schedule an annual eye exam at Airis Eye to evaluate your ocular health.
Computer Vision syndrome is associated with the prolonged use of computers and electronics that utilize a digital screen. Although it can be temporary, there are times when computer vision can strain the eyes to a degree that permanently affects your vision. An existing eye condition can worsen as the eyes try to focus and adjust to a computer screen, and precautions should be taken if you spend long hours in front of a computer screen.
If you have been experiencing blurry vision, dry eyes, eye strain, headaches, neck or back pain, try adjusting the lighting, posture, and the distance in front of your computer screen. If computer vision symptoms persist, call us to request an appointment, and we will perform a full evaluation.
Glaucoma causes damage to the optic nerve, which if not treated, can cause progressive, irreversible loss of vision. Glaucoma is a general term that refers to a variety of eye disorders that lead to a build up of pressure in the eye, ultimately damaging the optic nerve. Regular eye exams are the best form of prevention when it comes to treating this condition.
