Importance of Routine Eye Exams

If you have chronic conditions such as diabetes, you should have eye tests every year. Even if you have no underlying conditions, eye tests are important. Here are insights into why you should take routine eye exams seriously.

Diagnosing and Treating Cataracts

A cataract is a common vision problem that is mostly related to aging. It refers to the clouding of the eyes’ lenses, affecting vision. Cataracts generally progress slowly and present cloudy, discolored lenses, blurred vision, double vision, and light sensitivity as symptoms.

Candidates for Corneal Refractive Therapy

Corneal refractive therapy (CRT) or orthokeratology is a non-invasive procedure that helps align your vision as you sleep. The procedure employs the use of a gas-permeable contact lens that mildly reshapes your cornea. This procedure is done at night as you sleep which leads to clear vision during the day. A successful procedure guarantees that you will no longer need to wear contact lenses or spectacles during the day.
