Has it really been almost a year since you had your last eye exam? Maybe it’s been longer than that. Here at Cliffside Park Eye Associates, we want you to know the benefits of an annual eye exam so that you will be sure to put it on your calendar.
There are two priorities that our eye doctor in Fort Lee takes into account. First is to test your vision by conducting standard tests like having you read from an eye chart and doing a refractive assessment, which is basically trying different strength lenses over your eyes to determine which ones give you the greatest sharpness and clarity. If you’re nearsighted, farsighted, have an astigmatism, presbyopia, or some combination of the above, you need corrective eyewear to improve your vision. If you already wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, bring them with you. It may be time for an update to your prescription. The second priority involves your eye health, which can be threatened by any of the common eye diseases. Among them are cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. They can be responsible for a variety of consequences, such as loss of vision up to and including blindness, hemorrhaging of the blood vessels in your eyes, and optic nerve damage. Their effects may not be reversible. And most alarming of all, symptoms do not typically appear until the later stages. Our eye doctor in Fort Lee is able to use our advanced diagnostic equipment to detect signs of eye disease during its early stages, thereby leading to better chances of positive outcomes.
