When was the last time you or any other members of your family had a thorough eye exam by certified optometrists in Wellington, Florida? Health conditions like diabetes and hyperthyroidism affect eye health and vision. Some pregnant women also experience eye issues and vision changes. Regular checkups help detect and treat eye problems in their early stages when treatment is most effective. The board-certified optometrists at our vision center offer high-quality eye care for adults and children. With state-of-the-art equipment and years of experience treating eye conditions in patients of all ages, our mission is to safeguard your family’s eye health.
Detailed Eye Exams for Adults and Children
Have you been diagnosed with a thyroid condition and if so, have you had an eye exam to monitor the impact that this condition could have on the health of your eyes? Redness or dryness, itching, a gritty feeling in your eyes, and the inability to wear contact lenses can all be caused by thyroid eye disease. A detailed eye exam can provide a clear diagnosis. An experienced optometrist will examine your peripheral and color vision and will monitor eye muscle function for signs of thyroid disease. Our office also offers retinal imaging which aides in the detection of emerging diseases and allows us to monitor your ocular health from year to year.
Did you know pregnancy can affect the health of your eyes and can impact your vision? Women with pre-existing diabetes and thyroid conditions are prone to ocular complications during pregnancy. Changes in blood clotting times, blood sugar levels, and hormones can all have an impact on retinal health and blood flow to the eyes. Eyeglass prescriptions can also change during pregnancy causing blurred vision and the need for new glasses. Additionally, many women experience dry eyes and contact lens intolerance during pregnancy due to changes in hormones. Our doctors can help improve the burning and blurred vision that can occur during pregnancy with a treatment plan that is safe for both you and your baby.
And after your baby arrives, remember to schedule regular eye exams for your children. The American Optometric Association (AOA) says that infants should have their first comprehensive eye exam at 6 months. The next one should be at 3 years and again just before they enter kindergarten or the first grade at about age 5 or 6. Our office routinely sees children as young as 3 years old and we are happy to provide recommendations to our local colleagues specializing in eye care for children younger than 3 years of age.
Sunglasses, Contact Lenses and Prescription Eyewear
Have you had trouble wearing contacts or have you been told that they are not suitable for you? Our doctors are experienced in specialty and multifocal contact lenses and are focused on bringing the latest in contact lens technology to the office to meet the growing needs of our patients. Each year contact lens manufacturers introduce new contact lens materials and expand available prescription powers in existing contact lens brands, to provide greater opportunities to patients with the desire to enjoy vision corrected by contact lenses. Whether you have astigmatism, dry eyes, or are a new contact lens wearer, we can help you experience the joy and freedom of wearing contact lenses.
