Eyes age just like the rest of our body, and it’s important to make sure you are taking care of your vision as you age. Complete Eye Care of Medina looks at some of the most common issues that arise with age.
The human visual system is an amazing network of anatomical structures. Even minor changes in the structure or function of a component of the eye can significantly affect visual acuity. Because we rely so heavily on our visual system to receive and process information, it is essential to keep the eyes functioning properly. Visit your eye care provider regularly for a vision check-up to ensure any of these common eye conditions are diagnosed and treated properly.
If you experience any change in vision, visit an eye care provider immediately. An eye exam is essential to monitoring eye health, preserving your vision for life.
Intricate and complex, the eyes take in and process light and communicate information to the brain through electronic impulses. Several diseases and conditions – viral, bacterial, and genetic – affect the eyes and their ability to function properly. Any sign of unusual eye symptoms should prompt a visit with an eye care professional.
Vision impairment affects many people each day. If you have a vision impairment you don’t have to live with less than perfect sight. Contact Complete Eye Care of Medina today to have your vision analyzed and fixed, so you can get back to 20/20.
