Has it been a while since you have had a comprehensive eye exam? Are you experiencing some visual problems but have not yet visited an eye doctor for diagnosis and treatment? Are you concerned because you have a relative who was recently diagnosed with glaucoma? If the answer to any of these questions is “yes,” you will want to make an appointment to come to Vision World to see our Garden City eye specialist.
At Vision World, our Garden City eye specialist will be able to perform a comprehensive eye exam that includes glaucoma testing. We have been serving the needs of our Garden City community for many years. On staff we have expert optometrists and opticians to make sure that you have the very best of eye care. We welcome all members of the family into our practice, and provide each patient with the very best of care and treatment. Our comprehensive eye exam is very thorough, and will allow our optometrist to check for the occurrence of many eye diseases including: glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy cataracts and dry eye.
Our Garden City eye specialist will be sure to test for glaucoma as part of every eye exam. To begin with, our optometrist will put special medicated drops in your eye to dilate your pupils. The glaucoma exam will focus on the optic nerve, which will take on a certain look when the eye has glaucoma. The optic nerve will change how it looks over the progression of the disease. Our optometrist will also use a special instrument that is able to check the pressure of your eye. A visual field test will also be necessary to determine if there is any peripheral loss of vision. All of these tests are completely painless, and do not take much time. However, it may take a while for your eyes to readjust to light after receiving the medicated eye drops, so it is best if you have someone available who will be able to drive you home, if necessary. If you would like to be seen by one of our expert and highly-trained optometrists, contact our office today for an eye care appointment at Vision World.
