Can you remember the last time you had a comprehensive eye exam? If it has been over a year ago, you will want to make sure that you come into our optometric practice for an eye exam. This is because there are many eye diseases and disorders which show no symptoms in the early stages. And, if they are allowed to go undiagnosed, they can ultimately cause irreversible damage to your sight. Glaucoma is one such disease that shows no symptoms in the early stages. However, if glaucoma is allowed to progress, it can go on to cause many different types of vision problems including blindness. The good news is that if it is detected early during a comprehensive eye exam, it can generally be easily treated with self-administered eye drops, and not cause any vision harm. This is just one reason why you want to come into our practice for vision testing in Humble.
At our practice, Today’s Vision, our expert and highly trained optometrist is Dr. Jay Pravda. Dr. Pravda is able to provide comprehensive vision exams and vision testing in Humble for all members of the family. If you or your child wake up one morning with a red and irritated eye, you will want to come in that same day for an exam, so that our optometrist will be able to determine the cause of the problem. Red eye can be caused by something as simple as allergies, or by something as serious as glaucoma. At our practice, patients can also get vision exams which will make sure that their eyes are healthy, and that the patient will have an up to date lens prescription, if needed.
During the first part of our comprehensive vision testing in Humble, our optometrist will check your eyes for any refractive problems. If it is determined that you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, he will be able to write a lens prescription for you which will have you seeing clearly again. Today, even people with astigmatism or dry eye can have their vision completely corrected with contact lenses. During our complete eye exam, your eyes will also be tested or many different eye diseases and disorders including: cataracts; glaucoma; diabetic retinopathy; macular degeneration; dry eyes; retinal tears; and other problems of the cornea, retina, and macula.
