Bucks County Eye Exam (July 24, 2018)

Importance of a Yearly Eye Examination in Bucks County

Bucks County Eye Exam

Skipping your yearly visit to our office here at IC Laser Eye Care can have serious repercussions. Don't be misled into thinking that because your eyes feel fine and you think you're seeing okay that it means you shouldn't come in. Our Bucks County eye exam will ensure that you have more than adequate vision, but rather excellent vision. And when it comes to the health of your eyes, keep in mind that the most common eye diseases progress through their early stages without any obvious warning signs.

Your vision needs are continuously changing. If you have an existing pair of corrective eyewear, it may no longer be providing you with the high level of vision improvement it was when you first got it. Changes to vision can be dramatic or subtle, but you should never settle for less than the best vision you're capable of having. Similarly, you may have never worn eyeglasses or contacts in the past, but this could be the right time to begin. Thanks to our Bucks County eye exam, you won't have cause to squint or hold reading material up to your face any more. The second part of your visit is dedicated to the diagnosis of conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. By the time you notice indications of them, it will typically be too late to have prevented eye damage or vision loss that has already occurred. The best you can hope for is to stop further problems. If you have our Bucks County eye exam annually, though, you are putting the odds in your favor to catch these eye diseases prior to injury.

While you're thinking about it, now is the ideal time for you to reach out to us and schedule an appointment to come in for a comprehensive checkup. Your eyes and your vision are worth it.

Is Glaucoma Hereditary?

While doctors don’t fully understand the reasons why increased intereye pressure affects the optic nerve, they have established that certain genes are related to glaucoma, so the serious eye condition can run in families.

Eye Problems Common Among Seniors

Getting older doesn’t always mean failing eyesight, but presbyopia — age-related vision changes — is a common issue for many people over the age of 40. Other eye conditions have an increased risk as you get older, too.

Life After LASIK

The most common laser refractive eye surgery, LASIK generally frees you from the need for corrective lenses. Though you may notice immediate improvements in vision, full recovery takes up to six months.

Help! I Think I Have a Cataract

Cataracts result when the normally clear tissue of your eyes’ lenses becomes cloudy. Left untreated, they can lead to blindness, but cataract surgery is a safe, simple, and time-proven procedure.

Winter Eye Care Tips

The cooler months of winter can take a toll on your eyes, leaving them dry and irritated, even when it’s slushy and damp outside. Contrast that with heated air indoors, and you have a series of challenges to keep your eyes comfy.

Are Floaters a Concern?

You’ve likely noticed odd shapes in your vision, perhaps while looking at a clear blue sky: specks, strings, and squiggles that seem to move as you try to focus on them. They’re commonly called eye floaters. Sometimes, they can be cause for concern.
