Can you remember the last time you had a comprehensive eye exam? If not, you should make an appointment to come in to our vision practice for an eye exam. There are many eye diseases that show no symptoms in the early stages. Glaucoma is one such disease that many people may not even be aware that they have. If glaucoma is allowed to progress, it can cause permanent vision problems before the patient even knows that they have the disease. However, glaucoma can be diagnosed during a regular eye exam. If diagnosed early, it can be treated early, and any permanent vision damage can be avoided. This is just one reason why it is so important to see our 78231 optometrist for a comprehensive eye exam.
At our practice, Dr. Dawn Rakich, O.D., our expert and highly trained optometrist is Dr. Dawn Rakich. When you want to get a thorough eye exam, you can do no better than to come to our optometric practice. During the first part of our eye exam, your eyes will be thoroughly tested to see if you have any refractive vision errors. If it is determined that you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, our optometrist will be able to write an eyeglass or contact lens prescription that will be able to provide you with clear sight once again. It is possible to have astigmatism in combination with nearsightedness or farsightedness. However, today even patients with astigmatism are able to wear contact lenses comfortably and effectively. Today almost any patient can wear contact lenses for vision correction. Our 78231 optometrist can also provide you with a thorough contact lens exam and fitting.
During either one of these eye exams, our 78231 optometrist will also screen your eyes for many different eye diseases and disorders. Among the eye problems that your eyes will be screened for during a comprehensive eye exam are: glaucoma; cataracts; dry eyes; retinal tears; diabetic retinopathy; macular degeneration; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. If our optometrist is not able to provide the advanced care that you may need, she will be able to refer you to an expert ophthalmologist in the area who specializes in your particular eye care needs.
