Good vision can easily be taken for granted. Patients often feel that simply because they can see clearly, that their eyes are healthy. Unfortunately this is not always the case. Routine eye care can help determine the onset of any condition that may obscure vision, allowing doctors to catch it before it creates any devastating effects.
Suggested actions for general eye care include:
- Periodic eye exams with a licensed optometrist or ophthalmologist
- Staying educated on potential eyesight issues
- Protecting your eyes, such as with sunglasses or goggles when necessary
- Proper contact care
In the interest of helping our patients maintain proper eye care, the experts at Atlantis Eyecare have provided everything necessary. Our facility offers the full spectrum of eye care services, including among the most thorough eye exams Long Beach has available. For routine eye care and maintenance, Atlantis Eyecare is the only destination you need.
Routine Eye Exams
As perhaps the most basic form of eye care, patients are encouraged to receive regular eye exams. This simple action can detect the onset of any conditions that may need to be corrected down the road, allowing for preventative measures to be taken. Eye exams are a critical part of managing and treating eye disease, as these are often undetectable by the patient until they have reached an irreversible stage.
Who Performs Routine Eye Exams?
At Atlantis Eyecare, we have many qualified optometrists and ophthalmologists who perform our eye exams. Each of them is thoroughly trained in the diagnosis and correction of common vision problems, as well as issues that are more complex. In the event that surgery is required, it is performed by one of our expert ophthalmologists.
What Happens After the Exam?
In many cases, patients simply go home after an eye exam and return for their next eye exam some time later. However, if an eye exam reveals that further correction is required, your optometrist or ophthalmologist will discuss your options. In many cases, this may be as simple as filling a prescription for eyeglasses or contacts. In more complex cases, such as an ocular disease, your eye care specialist will develop a treatment plan that is completely unique to you. Whatever the case may be, our priority is your clear vision and total well being. To schedule an eye exam at our Long Beach office, please call us today.
