Taking care of your eye health is something to remember, especially when you are planning your annual exams and checkups. An annual eye exam is just a vital as an annual dental cleaning or a physical and can play an important part in catching any diseases or conditions. It is also generally important to keep tabs on your vision and to visit an eye doctor if you are experiencing any symptoms or pain. Here with our eye doc in Lawndale, Dr. Jerry Wake, you can get the comprehensive eye care and treatment that you need.
Eye health can often go overlooked, but it is important to remember to include it when scheduling your routine exams and checkups. Making sure that you schedule regular eye exams can help when it comes to diagnosing and treating eye diseases and other problems. This is especially important for people who have diabetes or for people who have any family history of eye diseases and other problems. If you have either of these preexisting conditions, then you are at a much higher risk for developing eye diseases. Though there is not always a way of preventing such things entirely, with frequent exams and checkups you can at least catch such conditions as early on as possible so as to provide treatment. The earlier a treatment is provided, the more likely you will be able to avoid lifelong side effects such as vision changes or vision loss. Aside from routine exams, our eye doc in Lawndale Dr. Jerry Wake can also provide you with vision screenings. These screenings keep tabs on your visual acuity and will let you know whether you need prescription lenses or whether any current prescription lenses that you have need to be updated. If you experience any side effects such as redness, irritation, pain, discomfort or discharge, it is important that you see an eye doctor as soon as you can as this can be the sign of an eye infection or injury resulting in infection. Even if your symptoms turn out to be caused by allergies, medication can be provided to help control your symptoms or even eliminate them.
If you have any eye conditions, predispositions, vision problems or are experiencing any symptoms, then call us here to schedule an appointment with our eye doc in Lawndale today. Dr. Jerry Wake can also help provide you and your family with routine exams and checkups if you need them on a regular basis.
