If you have never worn corrective lenses before, this might be the year when you can benefit from them. There’s no reason to settle for just decent eyesight, when you can see more sharply and clearly. We want you to have the highest level of vision that you’re capable of. And if you currently wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, it’s important to make certain that they are still appropriate for you. An updated prescription can make all the difference. That’s one component of our affordable eye exams in Gardena.

The other component is checking for indications of eye disease. Cataracts and glaucoma are two that can affect anyone, at any age. The baseline test for cataracts is a slit-lamp exam, which uses light to see inside your eye, while for glaucoma it’s tonometry, which measures your level of internal eye pressure. Additional tests may be done, as needed, to form a proper diagnosis. And other common eye diseases, such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, are applicable if you meet certain conditions such as being over 60 (for macular degeneration) or having type one or type two diabetes (for diabetic retinopathy). You will be tested for them in our affordable eye exams in Gardena if you are among those who it could happen to.

Also, your eye muscles, eyelids, and other key parts of your eyes will be checked, including your binocular vision (how both eyes work together). Our affordable eye exams in Gardena can even detect signs of health issues elsewhere in your body, like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. Call us today and schedule yours.
