All About Eyes

Our eyes are incredibly complex and essential parts of our everyday lives. From corrective lenses to eye disorders, Complete Eye Care of Medina helps you understand your eyes and the things you can do to keep your vision 20/20.

Common Eye Conditions

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.

Eye Diseases

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.
