Catching Certain Eye Diseases Early  Can Save Your Vision

There are many reasons to schedule an exam...

Dryness and Floaters

If your eyes are red, dry, or itchy, or you are seeing spots, floaters, or flashes, you should visit our office.

Health Issues

Patients with diabetes or other conditions which can affect the eyes should attend more frequent exams.

Difficulty Seeing in Low Light

If you are having trouble driving at night or seeing street signs in the dark, you may have a serious optical condition.

Headaches or Eye Strain

Headaches, eye strain, and blurred vision are all symptoms which you should discuss with your eye doctor.

Motion Sickness

If you have noticed dizziness, feelings of motion sickness, or difficulty following a moving target, you may need to see a doctor.

Trouble Reading

Another sign you need to schedule an eye exam is squinting while reading or holding books or phones further away from your face.

Any Changes in Your Vision Merit a Trip to the Eye Doctor

Your sight is a precious asset and regular eye exams are simply the best way to prevent serious issues from threatening your vision. If you have noticed any changes to your vision, especially after head trauma, we highly recommend scheduling an appointment with Dr. Justo for a comprehensive eye exam.

Clear vision is not a reason to skip your annual exam...

A Comprehensive Eye Examination Can Detect Other Health Issues

There are many issues which can affect your eye health without impacting your vision. Glaucoma, for example, may not show any obvious symptoms until you have sustained permanent vision loss

In addition, Dr. Justo can identify signs of more serious health concerns during your exam. Conditions such as diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, and hypertension all affect your blood vessels. The condition of the blood vessels in your retina is a good predictor of the health of the vessels throughout your body and can provid an early warning sign for serious health concerns.

We Use Advanced Diagnostic Tools to Evaluate Your Vision

During your exam, the doctor will use a series of tools to examine the structures of your eyes and test your vision. For example, we may use a slit-lamp to more closely evaluate the health of each eye. If you need glasses, your doctor can use a phoropter to refract light entering your eyes and fine-tune the power of your lenses.
