Eye health is important, and it should never be overlooked, which is why annual eye exams are so vital to remember. Eye exams can tell you a lot about your eye health and your vision, but it can also tell you more about your overall health as well. Here at Jeffrey H Brown Optometry we can provide you with the exams you need and with any treatment you may need as well. With Fountain Valley optometry, you can have certain conditions diagnosed, monitored, and treated, even if you have something along the lines of cataracts.
Cataracts develop as the lens of the eye thickens. There is a clear tissue over the eye that acts a bit like the lens of a camera does for the eye and it is known as the cornea. Cataracts often develop in people who are over the age of 65, people who have diabetes, as well as people who have suffered from eye damage in the past, but there are other factors that may make cataracts more likely. This is why eye exams are so important, and on a regular basis. Routine eye exams can help to identify early warning signs and symptoms so the issue can be treated as soon as possible. Early on, cataracts are treated like nearsighted is, with increasingly stronger prescription lenses. But as cataracts develop further, lenses may not help and surgery may be needed instead. Here at Jeffrey H Brown Optometry, we can provide you with comprehensive exams that spot early signs of cataracts and we can also provide you with regular treatment and care if you already happen to have cataracts. With Fountain Valley optometry, you can take care of your eyesight and ensure that issues like cataracts are taken care of.
