Laconia eye exam – It’s time for your regular eye exam!

eye-exam-near-me

Before you respond that you don’t need an eye exam because your eyes and vision are good, read on!

Many common age-related eye diseases can have absolutely no symptoms during the early stages, including macular degeneration (AMD), cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy. That means you can walk around for a long time with a serious, sight-threatening eye disease without any clue that you have it. Unfortunately, though, the later these eye diseases are diagnosed, the harder they are to treat. The best way to prevent vision loss is, therefore, to be proactive about visiting an eye care professional for routine comprehensive eye exams to detect eye disease way before you notice any signs!

Make your vision a top priority and visit an eye clinic near you

Many eye diseases can be quickly and easily diagnosed during a Comprehensive eye exam, Pediatric eye exam and Contact lens eye exam. If you were diagnosed with an eye disease, such as Cataracts, Glaucoma, Macular degeneration, Diabetic retinopathy, or Dry eye, you may be overwhelmed by the diagnosis and confused about what happens next. Will you need medications or surgery – now or in the future? Is LASIK eye and vision surgery an option for you ? Our Laconia eye doctor is always ready to answer your questions about eye disease and Contact lenses.

Age-related eye problems are common

According to statistics released by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, approximately two of three adults in America report having problems with their vision or eyes. What kind of problems? About 64% of adults have at least one of the following:

  • Blurry vision
  • Flashes of light
  • Double vision
  • Red, watery eyes
  • The trouble with night vision
  • Difficulty reading up close

However, only 13% of these people attest that they visited an eye clinic for an eye exam! At Winnipesaukee Eye, we encourage you to be responsible with your eye care and book an appointment. It’s the best way to protect your quality vision for as long as possible.

Begin routine eye exams from age 40

Even if you have no family history or personal medical history of eye disease, it’s recommended to get a baseline eye exam at age 40. If you have a preexisting health condition that can affect eyes, such as high blood pressure or diabetes, your eye doctor may recommend more frequent eye exams. Also, once you are over age 65, yearly eye exams are typically advised.

We are committed to personalized eye care in our Laconia, New Hampshire, eye care clinic, and our eye doctor will provide guidelines for each individual about how often to visit.

Vision loss is not inevitable

Vision loss from age-related eye disease is often curable or preventable, especially when diagnosed early. But remember, your eye care provider cannot help treat a problem or improve your vision if the problem has never been diagnosed!
