The National Eye Institute estimates that over 11 million Americans have a visual impairment they don't get treatment for. Don’t be part of that statistic. If you suffer from vision problems that impact your quality of life, see an eye doctor for diagnosis and treatment.
Here at Moninger Eye Care in Dallas, TX, we provide a wide range of ophthalmology services. Let us help you keep your eyes in the best health possible.
Visual Impairments Can Go Unnoticed
Vision problems can develop slowly — sometimes over the course of several years. Some eye conditions show no symptoms in the early stages, meaning you might have a serious health issue and not even realize it.
If you’re a healthy, young adult with good vision, you might assume that you’re not at risk for vision problems. But not all eye conditions and diseases are age-related. For example, retinal tears or detachment can happen at any age and often occur painlessly and with no warning.
At an eye exam, we check for many different eye problems so that we can treat any issues before they progress.
Eye Exams Promote General Health
An eye exam doesn’t just catch eye problems. The health of your eyes can be an indicator of your overall health as well. For example, here are some of the conditions that our ophthalmologist might discover during your eye exam:
- Autoimmune disorders
- High cholesterol
- Thyroid disease
Stay on top of your overall health by scheduling annual eye exams with a specialist in ophthalmology. If you’d like to make an appointment at our Dallas, TX, clinic, please call 972.241.2564.
