Eye Care & Regular Eye Exams

 

In order to maintain decent vision and to keep your eyes healthy, you must have routine eye exams. For certain age groups, it may be alright to have an exam every two years; however, if you are a senior or have diabetes it is a good idea to be checked every six to twelve months. Be sure to consult your eye care professional regarding the consistency of eye exams that you should maintain. Our eye doctors will explain the ideal consistency of eye exams you should maintain.

To schedule your annual eye exam at one of our locations, see the top of this page to “request appointment” or call us. We have practices in Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff and surrounding areas, as well in Deming and Las Cruces, New Mexico.

At this exam your pupils will be dilated so the doctor can see your retina, your vision will be checked and you will be screened for eye diseases or disorders. If further testing is required a more comprehensive exam and possible testing will be scheduled. If you experience any changes in your vision between regularly scheduled visits with your eye specialist, you should schedule an appointment at Southwestern Eye Center as soon as possible. Early detection of problems and treatment of problems can be the key to preventing loss of vision.

Regular eye exams can detect a variety of eye conditions early on and are the best way to preserve good vision. For children, strabismus (crossed eye) and amblyopia (lazy eye) can often be diagnosed in early childhood, avoiding life-long vision impairment. Also, rare eye conditions from birth (like congenital cataracts) can be diagnosed and treated. For all ages, refraction tests can determine whether prescription eyewear would be beneficial, and what power is necessary. Furthermore, many debilitating eye diseases can be diagnosed before noticeable symptoms occur, potentially making the difference between minor damage and major vision loss.
