If you have not had a complete vision exam over the past year, we hope you will contact us at Fort Wayne Vision. Our eye doctor in Fort Wayne IN, Dr. Zubair Khan or Dr. Richard Klaehn, can provide you with excellent vision care including a yearly eye exam or contact lens exam and fitting.
During both of these eye exams, your eyes will be thoroughly screened for many eye diseases and disorders including: glaucoma; macular degeneration; cataracts; diabetic retinopathy; retinal tears; dry eyes; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. It is very important that you have yearly eye exams because in many instances your vision can only be protected when eye diseases are found and treated early. For example, if a patient has glaucoma, and they come in for their regular annual eye exam by our eye doctor in Fort Wayne IN, the glaucoma will be found and can be easily treated by our doctor prescribing medicated eye drops. However, if a patient does not have their annual eye exam, and they have glaucoma, the glaucoma will undoubtedly advance and permanent and irreversible vision damage will most likely occur to the optic nerve. Annual eye exams are so important because many eye diseases, including glaucoma, usually show no recognizable symptoms in the early stages. Having a yearly eye exam will make sure that any eye diseases are found early so that they can be best treated. Diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration, are two other eye diseases which can cause serious vision loss if allowed to progress. However, when they are found and treated early, patients are generally able to avoid losing precious vision due to these eye diseases. When it comes to excellent eye care, prevention is certainly the key. And the best way to protect your eyes is to have a yearly eye exam at our vision practice.
