Your eye health is just as important as that of any other part of your body and yet people often don’t think about it very much. At 2020 Vision Place, we want to remind you of how precious your eyes and your vision are and we encourage you to take advantage of our Tamarac eye health to ensure that you’re seeing your best and that you are not being affected by any eye diseases, most of which begin and progress without providing any symptoms to warn you.
Certain common eye diseases are probably familiar to everyone, including glaucoma and cataracts. Both of these share the distinction of being applicable to anyone, regardless of age, heredity, or other circumstances. Other examples, like macular degeneration, are a concern only if you are of a certain age (60 or older in this case), while diabetic retinopathy can affect those who have type one or type two diabetes. Eye care for children will also include checking them for amblyopia, also known as lazy eye. Our Tamarac eye health begins with a recommended yearly eye exam, including a screening for any typical eye diseases that you may be prone to contracting. This gives us the edge in finding any signs of a problem before you suffer damage to your eyes or some degree of vision loss. Early detection of any disease is associated with the best odds of a favorable outcome, and your eyes are no different.
Your eyes can be affected by various issues that may need attention by our eye doctor. Contact lens infections can occur in some people, especially due to hygiene or environmental issues, insufficient tear production, and use of extended-wear lenses. Eye allergies or conjunctivitis (pink eye) may be marked by symptoms such as reddened eyes, itchiness in the eyes, and excessive tearing. If you do notice anything unusual regarding your eyesight or your general eye well-being, the best way to handle it is to call and schedule an appointment for our Tamarac eye health so that you can be diagnosed and treated appropriately. Your eyes are too important to ignore them.
