The doctors at Eye Care of Iowa recommend yearly eye examinations. The necessity for more frequent examinations depend on factors such as if you wear prescription glasses or contact lenses, have been diagnosed or watched closely for the development of diabetes or hypertension, have a family history of eye disease (glaucoma, macular degeneration, etc.), work in an occupation that requires high visual demands or one that may be potentially hazardous to the eyes, take prescription or nonprescription drugs with eye-related side effects, have a history of eye surgery, or have some other health concern or condition not previously mentioned.
It is a fact that your vision changes with age. It is important to be attentive to these changes. Although some of these changes may be a normal age-related change, other symptoms can be early signs of eye diseases. Regular comprehensive examinations, along with healthy life-style choices, will significantly improve your chances of maintaining good vision.
The examination itself is a detailed process used to determine what is causing your current problems. The treatment program is then tailored to your specific needs and issues. The doctors will take the time to ensure that you not only receive the best care possible, but also that you have a full understanding of the diagnosis and treatment options available.
In addition to utilizing the latest technology, our doctors have years of experience with treating and managing a variety of eye conditions. Eye Care of Iowa is committed to providing the highest level of care to each and every one of our patients.
