The newly announced service has been designed to spot the signs of eye disease before patients notice any symptoms and recommend preventive treatments to preserve their vision.
According to the CDC, 34 million people in the United States have diabetes, and about 88 million more live with prediabetes. The excess sugar in the bloodstream goes through the blood vessels at the back of the eyes and damages them, which can lead to serious eye problems, including diabetic retinopathy, macular edema, open-angle glaucoma, and cataracts. The CDC recommends that people with diabetes get an eye exam every year.
During their technologically advanced eye examinations, the qualified optometrists at Eyes Now thoroughly check the patient’s eyes for signs of disease or other potential problems using different tools and techniques.
The patient’s optic disc, macula, retina, and vascular system are examined using a fundus camera, which takes detailed color photographs of the interior of the eye. Optical coherence tomography scans capture cross-sectional images, which are then used to assess the health of the vascular system behind the retina.
These methods allow the optometrist to detect early signs of diabetic retinopathy and macular edema. A visual field test is performed to determine whether there are any blind spots in the patient’s vision.
Based on the results of the examination, the optometrists develop an individual plan for preserving the patient’s vision.
Eyes Now is a veteran-owned and operated business. The practice has three convenient locations in Texas – in Dallas, Southlake, and Lewisville. Other services include adult and children’s eye exams, dry eye therapy, myopia control, managing digital eye strain symptoms, contact lens fittings, and laser eye surgery consultations.
“Everyone was courteous and friendly,” said a satisfied client. “They were careful to keep all equipment clean. The eye exam was very thorough and the prescription was perfect.”
