Takoma Park Eye Exam
Comprehensive vision exams also encompass screening for common eye diseases and are recommended once per year by us here at Maple Lawn Eye Care Center. Your optimal vision and the longterm well being of your eyes are at stake, and since our Takoma Park eye exam
is quick, painless, and very effective, there is no reason not to come in for one.
If you're one of those people who has never needed glasses or contacts, that doesn't mean that you can't benefit from them now. Sometimes, your vision changes are so gradual that you don't even realize it has gone from being outstanding to adequate or even subpar over the course of years. And for those who already wear corrective lenses, an update to your current prescription could be just what you need to enjoy the sharpest and clearest vision possible. Tests such as reading from an eye chart and testing your vision with various strength lenses allow our eye specialist to determine if you do need a prescription, and if so then which one is ideal for your unique needs. Our Takoma Park eye exam
also includes testing for glaucoma and cataracts, two eye diseases that can affect you regardless of your age, medical history, or genetics. If you have type one or type two diabetes, you will also be screened for diabetic retinopathy. And at age 40, you will start being tested for macular degeneration. All of the above mentioned conditions share one very essential trait: they present no symptoms in their early stages. It's only when they have progressed to a more advanced stage that you will begin to notice signs. Unfortunately, you may then have already suffered some degree of vision loss or eye damage. That's why an annual visit to our office for our Takoma Park eye exam
is so important.
