If you had not had a comprehensive eye exam over the past year, you should visit us at Rockport Eye Associates for a complete eye exam. Our top-notch optometrist, Dr. Nichole Q. Soto, can provide you with an eye test in Aransas Pass TX, to make sure that your eyes are completely healthy.
There are many different eye diseases which show no symptoms in the early stages. For this reason, it is important to have an eye test in Aransas Pass TX to make sure that your eyes are healthy and are not developing any serious vision problems. During our comprehensive eye exams our eye doctor will evaluate your vision with refraction tests, a slit lamp, an intraocular pressure test, and a full retinal exam. During our eye testing, your eyes will be screened for many different problems including: cataracts; macular degeneration; glaucoma; diabetic retinopathy; dry eyes; retinal tears; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. Depending on our doctor’s findings, you may also have additional diagnostic testing to determine the health of your optic nerve. Computerized visual field testing can also be done if our doctor determines it is necessary. It is during these early stages, before symptoms are evident, that many eye diseases can be easily treated and vision loss can be prevented. However, if you do not have periodic eye exams, you may end up developing serious vision problems, such as glaucoma, which can permanently and irreversibly affect your vision. The good news is that if glaucoma is found while it is still in its early stages, our eye doctor will be able to prescribe medicated eye drops which should keep the glaucoma from advancing and damaging your optic nerve. Other vision problems need to be treated early as well.
