The Gainesville Eye Associates are helping to educate about eye conditions
Eye conditions can be a very frightening thing, and unfortunately, many people don't know enough to recognize the warning signs in case something's wrong. Too much of a delay in getting care for a major problem could have a permanent impact on vision... And that's part of the reason that the Gainesville Eye Center has been dedicated to providing information and care to all of its patients.
Among the most important things to learn are the signs of common problems with the eye. Many people experience at least one problem with vision during their lifetime, from the all-too-common lack of proper focus to problems that are more likely to develop later in life, such as glaucoma and cataracts. It's not very easy to overstate the importance of regular eye exams that help to deal with the many problems that can occur.
However, other people are a little more at risk, and should come in to our Georgia Eye Clinic more frequently. Diabetes, for example, has been strongly and clearly associated with vision problems - anyone who has this condition is at a noticeable higher risk of developing certain eye problems, and dealing with these as early as possible can help to prevent a complete loss of vision. Other factors (such as genetics, work environment, or drug use) can also have an impact on vision.
Fortunately for patients, there are very few treatable problems that our vision and surgery centers aren't qualified to deal with. Unlike some vision locations, which mainly provide vision tests and sell glasses, our center provides eye care ranging from implanting permanent corrective lens to the removal of certain problems. The diversity of options also means that we can select the best method for treating any given problem without worrying about whether or not it can be done. Put simply, it can.
Eye and vision problems are a difficult subject, but vision plays a huge part in the daily lives of most people. For more information on vision problems, including those that you are most likely to develop, talk to your optometrist during your next eye appointment... And call the office of the Gainesville Eye Associates to schedule an appointment if you don't currently have one! We'll schedule an appointment time that fits your needs and provide everything you need to know about the current status of your vision.
Disclaimer: None of the content of this article is intended as specific medical advice. Many factors can influence vision, and not every treatment method will be appropriate for every set of circumstances. It may be recommended that you simply leave a problem alone, rather than having corrective surgery, if the risks of treating the problem outweigh the benefits you can expect to receive. Ask your optometrist about the various options available for each condition you have or are concerned about having in the future.
