Comprehensive Eye Exams

Eye Exams

Did you know that your health affects your eyes? Conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure can weaken the blood vessels inside your eyes, causing leaking or bleeding that can lead to blindness. That’s why comprehensive eye exams are extremely important to your overall health regardless of your age.

 

You should also get a routine eye exam even if you don’t feel like you have any issues with your vision. There are so many things that could be happening inside your eyes without any signs or symptoms.

 

During a complete eye exam at Clarity Eyecare, Dr. Chan will use the latest technology to determine your prescription for your eyeglasses or contact lenses. She will also check your eyes for common eye diseases and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.

Contact Lens Exam

Clarity Eyecare offers a selection of contact lenses from the latest brands, including Acuvue. Through your comprehensive eye exam, Dr. Chan will determine the best fitting lens based on your lifestyle and the shape and health of your eye. Schedule an exam today and let Dr. Chan help find the right contacts for you and your needs.

  • Foreign objects in the eye, such as small shards of glass or metal
  • Cuts or punctures of the eye or eyelid
  • Chemical exposure causing pain or vision problems
  • Sudden vision loss or change in your vision
  • Scratches caused by foreign objects
  • Sudden onset of floaters or flashes of light

 

Acting quickly during an emergency eye situation is critical. If you are encountering any symptoms mentioned above, please call us immediately.

Pediatric Eye Care

Healthy vision is one of the most important components of your child’s wellness. Vision develops rapidly starting at birth and is tied to many developmental milestones, such as hand-eye coordination and reading. In the long term, your child’s vision will impact how they learn, play, and interact with the world.

 

It is not always easy to spot vision problems in kids. While there may be some obvious signs of visual disorders, many vision problems can only be detected by a qualified eye doctor during a comprehensive eye exam. Some symptoms are more obvious, like squinting or holding reading materials very close, but often the early signs are subtle and can even be misdiagnosed.

 

Your child may be experiencing a vision problem if he or she does any of the following:

  • Avoids reading and close-up work like coloring or doing puzzles
  • Seems to work slow or not understand the task
  • Complains of fatigue or headaches
  • Has a short attention span or seems distracted
  • Covers one eye or tilts head when focusing on something
  • Shows sensitivity to light
  • Exhibits difficulty with coordination

 

Routine eye exams are a crucial part of your child’s well-being and readiness for learning. Even with 20/20 vision, your child can still have problems that only an eye doctor can detect. Schedule an appointment at Claritry Eyecare, and give your child the gift of clear vision.

Diabetic Eye Exam

Diabetes affects the smallest blood vessels of your body first and some of the smallest blood vessels are in your eyes, fingers, toes, and kidneys. Increased sugar in the bloodstream causes the blood vessel walls to become weak and leaky. If blood leaks from the vessel it causes damage that leads to nerve damage, tissue damage, and can cause irreversible vision loss.

 

If you have diabetes, you need to be aware that this disease puts you at a greater risk of developing vision problems. Make sure you stay on top of your eye health by scheduling annual diabetic eye exams at Clarity Eyecare.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye disease resulting in increased pressure inside the eye. This increased pressure causes damage to the cells that connect the eye to the brain, which can lead to vision loss and impairment.

 

While glaucoma is considered a progressive eye disease, there are treatments that can slow the progression of the disease. Early testing and treatment is the best way to ensure minimum impact to your vision.

Cataracts

It is common for those over the age of 55 to develop cataracts. A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s internal lens structures. The cataract blocks light, making it difficult to see, and can get worse over time. As cataracts form, your vision will be affected with symptoms that include glare & halos around lights at night, decreased vision overall, and inability to see well in low lighting conditions. In the early stages, you may be able to improve your vision with corrective lenses. When your vision is seriously impaired, you may need to consider surgery.

Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye disease is one of the most common eye conditions worldwide and a primary reason for visits to the eye doctor. This condition occurs when your tears aren’t able to provide adequate lubrication for your eyes.

 

Understanding the underlying cause of your dry eye disease is essential to determine the best type of treatment plan. Dr. Chan can help you find relief from dry eye symptoms including redness, irritation, itching, and watering.
