Your eyes are the primary sense that you rely on to tell you about the rest of your world. A Portland eye exam is the best way to protect your eyes from disease and to make sure that they are bringing you the sharpest information about the world and the people and places in it that you cherish most. An annual comprehensive eye examination from Rockport Eye Associates can help each member of your family see in the clearest vision and remain free from eye disease. Our eye care experts recommend annual exams for all the members of your family from the young child to the seniors in your home, since your family’s eyes and vision are always changing and developing.
We all think of a Portland eye exam as a way to measure our vision and prescribe corrective lenses if necessary, but a comprehensive eye exam at our office is so much more. The human eye is subject to many diseases and disorders that can develop overtime. You may not feel or see anything out of the ordinary now but many serious eye problems take a long time to develop to the point that you begin to notice a problem. Eye disease, such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, presbyopia and others can develop over time with no symptoms until they have reached an advanced stage when treatment options are limited and less effective. Comprehensive eye exams can diagnose these ailments when they are still in an early stage of development and the treatment options are more effective. An eye exam can also help spot some diseases that aren’t usually thought of as being associated with the eyes but have tell-tale signs that should be picked up during a comprehensive eye exam at our office such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and Graves Disease.
Since your eyes are constantly changing an annual exam is the best way to monitor both your vision, which may change from year-to-year and the presence of any other eye and general medical conditions. Our practice uses the latest equipment and technology to perform still lamp exams, dilated eye exams, refraction examinations, glaucoma pressure testing as well as computerized and digital imaging tests to ensure that your family’s eyes stay in tip-top condition. So bring your family into our office for a Portland eye exam.
