Protect Your Vision and Health with Eye Exams

Concerned about issues with your vision? Schedule an eye exam today by calling (623) 232-0560 or contacting us online.

When there are no obvious problems with your vision, it is easy to put off a visit to the eye doctor.

An eye exam at Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center in Phoenix, AZ, can catch early warning signs and ensure your eyes stay healthy.

So what makes regular eye exams so important?

Eye Exams Can Identify Problems before You Start to Experience Symptoms

There are a variety of sight-threatening diseases which may not show symptoms until the damage to your eye is irreparable. Early detection from Dr. Emilio Justo and our team could save your vision.

You may be straining your eyes without even realizing it. Minor annoyances, such as dry eyes and headaches, may be related to vision issues. Our optometrists can recommend simple solutions during your exam.

Your eyes provide a unique view of the overall health of your body. During an eye exam, your doctor can identify signs of a variety of diseases which may otherwise go unnoticed, such as strokes, diabetes, and cancer.

Catching Certain Eye Diseases Early  Can Save Your Vision

There are many reasons to schedule an exam...

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

Patient having vision tested

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.
