At Enterprise Optometry Group, we provide thorough and complete eye care. That means that our vision test in Shasta Lake covers not only finding out how well you are seeing right now and prescribing corrective lenses as needed, but also screening you for common eye diseases, most of which don't have any symptoms associated with them in their early stages. It is our goal to help you achieve optimal eye health as well as the best vision that you're capable of having.
Our vision test in Shasta Lake is recommended every year for our valued patients. There are two good reasons for this. First, your eyesight changes on a regular basis, and so what was true a year ago may be quite a different story today. If you've never worn eyeglasses or contact lenses before, this may be the point where they can offer you much-needed benefits. And if you do currently wear corrective lenses, it might be the right time to upgrade your prescription. It's not good enough to just see “okay” when an updated set of lenses could have you seeing ideally. Second, the most positive outcomes for eye diseases, as with those anywhere in the body, are linked to early detection.
There are various tests that will help our eye doctor to gauge your eyesight, including a visual acuity test and refraction test. Your vision will be tested up close, at a distance, and peripherally (side-to-side). If you do need a new or amended prescription, we can fill it for you right here. Our vision test in Shasta Lake also includes checking your eye muscle coordination to determine how well your eyes are working in unison, and checking the important parts of your eyes to ensure that they are functioning as expected.
Cataracts and glaucoma can affect anyone at any age, though both are more common as people get older. Diabetic retinopathy is a concern if you have either type one or type two diabetes. And macular degeneration is a condition that those 40 and over should be aware of. As a key part of our vision test in Shasta Lake, our eye doctor will check for any signs of the most common eye diseases. If left unaddressed, the effects of these problems can be damage to your eyes or vision loss. In some or even many cases, the damage or vision loss is not reversible. So if it's been at least 12 months since you've had an eye exam, call us right now and schedule yours.
