Annual eye exams are important for the overall health of a patient. The eye shows signs of other illnesses that may be first discovered during the exam. More than just determining the need for glasses or a new prescription, Dr. Tantisira’s experience as an ophthalmologist means her eye exams are thorough. She spends generous time with each patient and will diagnose and treat many common eye issues including cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and dry eyes. This approach means that her patients maximize their vision as long as possible.
Regular eye examinations by an ophthalmologist are important for several reasons. First and foremost, as the medically trained (M.D.) eye doctors, they can help detect eye problems early on, before they become more serious and potentially cause vision loss or blindness. Ophthalmologists are highly trained to identify all types of eye diseases and conditions, such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. By catching these issues early, ophthalmologists can begin treatment promptly, potentially slowing or even preventing further vision loss.
Another reason to see an ophthalmologist regularly is to ensure that your corrective lenses are up-to-date. Your vision can change over time, and even small changes can impact your quality of life. By having regular eye exams, your ophthalmologist can identify changes in your vision and update your prescription as needed, helping you see clearly and comfortably.
Finally, regular eye exams can provide valuable information about other health conditions in the body, such as high blood pressure and diabetes. By examining the eyes, ophthalmologists can identify potential health concerns and refer patients to appropriate medical specialists as needed.
Overall, regular eye exams by an ophthalmologist are crucial for maintaining good eye health and overall well-being. They can detect eye problems early, ensure corrective lenses are up-to-date, and monitor the overall health of the eyes.
