Regular Eye Exams Are Key to Maintaining Eye Health Through the Aging Process

It’s no secret that bodies change as time goes by. But many of us overlook our eyes when we consider self-care. Unfortunately, our eyes require just as much care as the rest of our bodies. Luckily, you don’t have to keep track of your eye health; we’ll do it for you.

All you need to do is book your annual eye exam with us. We’ll help you stay on top on your prescription, screen for any early signs of disease, and monitor your overall eye health. Our goal is to help you maintain healthy eyes and vision for a lifetime. Contact us today to book your annual eye exam.

Annual Eye Exams Reduce the Risk of Vision Loss Due to Disease

Most eye diseases progress slowly, causing permanent and irreversible damage. With early treatment, this damage can usually be prevented or delayed. The problem is, to treat a disease, you first have to know it’s there. And since most eye diseases don’t show any symptoms at all, the only way to get an early diagnosis is through regular, thorough eye exams.

At a Complete Family Eye Care exam, we’ll carefully screen for diseases and conditions often associated with aging. These include:

Cataracts

Most people will experience some kind of cataract development during their life. As the eye ages, the proteins in the lens change structure; causing the lens to become more opaque and hindering light from effectively passing through the lens. Cataracts can be removed surgically.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Age-Related Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of severe vision loss in people over 60; affecting over 10 million Americans. The macula is a small, light-sensitive area of the retina which is responsible for your central vision.

When damage or deterioration of the macular cells and tissue occurs, it’s known as age-related macular degeneration or AMD. The more severe the degeneration, the more likely the cells are to die; making diagnosis and treatment crucial to avoiding permanent vision loss.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is sometimes known as “the silent thief of sight” because it slowly damages your vision without presenting any symptoms. It is a disease that causes progressive and permanent damage to the optic nerve. When the fluid in your eye doesn’t drain properly, it causes the intraocular pressure (IOP) to rise, damaging the delicate nerve fibres. With early detection and treatment, significant damage can be delayed or prevented.

Complete Family Eye Care Offers Exceptional Service

As far as we’re concerned, your eye exam isn’t finished until you feel like you fully understand the state of your eye health. During and after your exam, we’ll make a point of clearly and carefully explaining each test we run and every result we uncover.

To Our Valued Patients:

Complete Family Eye Care has always been committed to the health and safety of our patients, our staff, and our community.

Because of the current spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to assure you that it has been our commitment for years to sterilize each piece of equipment either immediately before or immediately after each use to insure no germs are spread from one patient to another. We have always been proud of this commitment, so for us…it remains ‘business as usual’ and please be assured that we’ve got your back!

While cleanliness has always been a top priority of our practice, we are also increasing our frequency in which ‘high touch’ areas will be cleaned and sterilized, such as our reception chairs and tables as well as our restrooms and children’s play area and toys. You’ll notice that we have also removed magazines from our reception area to help ensure a sterile environment. Additionally, we are also sterilizing each eyeglass frame after our patients try them on. We continue to practice good hygiene by demanding our doctors and staff to wash their hands frequently with anti-bacterial soap or to use a high-percentage alcohol hand sanitizer.

One of the ways Coronavirus is transmitted is by touching the eyes. We highly recommend you take extra precautions of washing your hands before handling contact lenses. We also recommend you frequently sterilize or replace your contact lens case. As usual, always use approved contact lens solutions and follow the directions for proper use. We also recommend you consider wearing glasses more often, rather than contacts, to reduce the amount of eye contact.

We are actively monitoring both local and national information about the Coronavirus and are continuing to do everything we can to keep our practice a clean and safe environment for you and your family. Complete Family Eye Care will continue to closely monitor COVID-19 and will follow the guidelines provided by local and national organizations like the CDC and WHO, and can assure you that our practice remains a safe place to continue your uninterrupted eye health care.

We felt it important to keep you updated, and If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to give us a call.

Thank you for being such a valued patient,

Dr. Cody Jones and the Staff at Complete Family Eye Care
