Bucks County cataracts

At IC Laser Eye Care we recommend all of our patients receive an annual exam each year. Eyes should be checked yearly for eye conditions or diseases that can come on slowly and without warning like glaucoma and cataracts. A comprehensive eye exam can help detect Bucks County cataracts so that they can be treated before they get worse.

A dilated eye exam can detect up to 30 systemic conditions. This can include diseases like diabetes, issues with tumors, Bucks County cataracts, high blood pressure, and other eye diseases. It is recommended that infants receive their first eye exam before six months old. They should receive another at age three, and once more before they enter school, usually around age 5 or 6. Afterwards, they should come in at least once a year for a regular exam. Kids should always have an eye exam, because poor eye conditions and poor vision can impair children’s progress at school and hinder their academic performance.

Both glaucoma and cataracts can come on slowly, without warning. That’s why an eye exam is important, so that it catches these issues and allows our doctors to treat them in a timely manner. For more information, call us and ask our doctors any questions you might have regarding Bucks County cataracts and more. If you are experiencing vision loss or blurriness, do not hesitate to call us. Our staff is on hand during all business hours to help you answer your questions or to schedule appointments. If you’re taking any medications, let us know in order to help us diagnose your eyes better just in case any problems are found. We will need to know your family health history, and if anyone in your family has had eye problems like glaucoma and cataracts, or a family history of eye disease.
