Our eye health testing in San Diego done ideally once per year is a key part of maintaining your best possible vision and the well-being of your eyes. At Optometry Cabana, you will have various tests done to gauge how well you are seeing and also to detect the presence of any of the most common eye diseases. You may not be aware of this, but most eye diseases have no obvious symptoms during their early stages. By the time you become aware that something is amiss, it typically is because you have suffered some degree of vision loss or damage to your eyes, either of which may not be reversible. This is why regular eye exams are so vital. Dr Tania Stevens performs thorough eye exams to diagnose and monitor your eye health and to determine your precise prescriptions for eyeglasses and contact lenses.
Nearly everyone will be checked for glaucoma, cataracts, and keratoconus as part of our eye health testing in San Diego. All of them can occur in anyone, regardless of age, heredity, or circumstances. Other diseases are applicable only if you meet certain criteria, and as such you would only be tested for them if you fall into the appropriate categories. For example, diabetic retinopathy is a condition that affects people who have type one or type two diabetes. And macular degeneration is an issue that impacts those 40 years of age and older.
Our exams include some baseline tests for particular diseases, as well as some advanced computerized testing. We make it a point to make good use of the latest technology wherever possible in implementing your eye care. For cataracts, our eye health testing in San Diego begins with a slit lamp test. And for glaucoma, the gateway exam is tonometry. Of course, additional testing will be conducted as needed. Our goal is to make a definitive determination as to whether you have any signs of the diseases in question.
Our eye health testing in San Diego will also be concerned with taking a close look at your eye muscles, eyelids, and other key parts of your eyes. It can be easy to take your eyes for granted, but don't let that happen. Call us today and schedule an examination.
