A comprehensive eye exam once per year might seem like more than you need, but the truth is that even if you think you’re seeing okay and that you have no symptoms to alarm you about eye disease, both of those situations can benefit from a trip to our office here at North Country Optical. Not only is it important that you see as sharply and clearly as you are capable of, but common eye conditions do not have any noticeable symptoms in their early stages. Our Malone eye exam is proactive and ensures prompt diagnosis and treatment when applicable.
Adequate vision is something you should never settle for. That leaves a lot of room for improvement. More so when your vision is subpar. This is so when you have an existing corrective prescription, as well as if you have never needed to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses up until now. Our Malone eye exam will detect nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia, all refractive issues that are addressed effectively with the right prescription eyewear. The comprehensive checkup includes having you read from an eye chart, doing a refraction assessment, and testing your peripheral (side-to-side) vision, too. As for eye disease, you can depend on our Malone eye exam for finding signs of glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy, even when you have no reason to suspect that anything is wrong. Keep in mind that if you wait for obvious indications, you are risking the chance of vision loss or eye damage, both of which could be irreversible. In addition, your ocular blood vessels can offer valuable clues to the presence of high cholesterol, hypertension, and diabetes.
