Eye Diseases

Eye care is not only about visual acuity (how sharp your vision is). Reading the letters from the eye chart can identify only 20-30% of vision problems. Eye care is about how HEALTHY your eyes are and even how healthy YOU are.

Your eye examination does include visual acuity tests so your doctor can determine a prescription for your best possible corrected vision. Moreover, the Eye M.D.s at Eye Associates of San Diego are physicians. They give you a comprehensive eye exam that, most importantly, includes testing for such eye-related diseases as glaucoma, cataract, dry eye, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and more. With advanced ophthalmic diagnostic equipment, the doctors can detect these diseases in the early stages. Early detection is critical to slowing vision loss.

Initial signs of other non-eye systemic problems such as diabetes or high blood pressure may first appear in your eyes. As eye physicians, your doctors examine the blood vessels in your retina and can detect the early signs and recommend further testing by your family physician or a specialist.

Annual eye exams enable your Eye M.D. to monitor the health of your eye, assist you with adjusting to aging-related eye conditions, keep
your prescription updated, evaluate changes that occur and make recommendations for maintaining eye health. To keep the “windows to your world” in good condition, be sure your Eye M.D. checks them at least once per year. Should you notice changes in your vision, don’t
wait until your next annual exam... see your Eye M.D. immediately. Contact us to set up an apointment today!
