More than just glasses and contact lenses!
Visual correction may include glasses or contacts. Further evaluation continues with what our office feels to be the most important part of the examination, the eye health evaluation. Glaucoma testing, dilated fundus examination, and diagnostic retinal imaging is performed to evaluate the health of the eye. Common systemic conditions detected on a routine eye examination include:
High Blood Pressure
Impending stroke and heart attack
Neurologic Disease including Multiple Sclerosis and Brain Tumors
Autoimmune disease including systemic lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and Sjogren's syndrome
