Impaired vision can affect a child's learning as well as his or her physical development. Your child's first eye examination should be before entering school, or sooner if you detect a problem. Modern technology makes it possible to examine a young child even if he or she cannot identify letters or answer questions. The earlier a vision condition is detected, the better the chance of correction. Click here for more info >>

Annual eye and vision examinations are an important part of preventive health care. Many eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms. As a result, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision problems are important for maintaining good vision and eye health, and when possible, preventing vision loss.  Click here for more info >>

 

Visual decline is common in the older adult. However, many ocular disorders do not exhibit any visual symptoms until they enter their later stages. Although some disorders cannot be cured, there are ways to delay the onset or progression of many diseases. That is why it is so important to have an eye exam at least once a year! This patient aid outlines the symptoms, risk factors, prevention, and treatment options for cataract, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration—three very common disorders that affect the vision of older adults. Click here for more info >>
