COMPREHENSIVE EYE EXAMS
While some eye diseases have obvious symptoms such as red eyes, light sensitivity, or flashing lights, many serious, vision-threatening problems have no warning signs. Glaucoma, for example, will present no symptoms until actual vision loss occurs. Proper eyecare and evaluations can help prevent vision loss. Comprehensive eye exams can also detect diabetes, hypertension, retinal holes or tears, and other important treatable medical conditions.
Eye exams on older patients often reveal developing cataracts which is a natural part of aging. If Dr. Uelner finds cataracts when she performs an optical examination of the interior of your eyes, she will discuss in detail what the next steps are.
Macular degeneration is one of the more serious vision conditions that afflict the optical health of many of our older population.
