Regular eye examinations are invaluable in maintaining your eyes’ health by both diagnosing and preventing disease as well as optimizing your visual potential. During your comprehensive eye evaluation, Dr. Katz will examine your eyes to detect diseases or other abnormalities that may not yet be causing symptoms.
Early detection is crucial in preventing vision loss from diseases such as glaucoma, which may not cause symptoms until significant and irreversible damage has taken place. Routine checkups also help monitor control of systemic conditions such as hypertension and diabetes mellitus. Early detection of eye involvement gives a patient a choice of treatment options and reduces the risk of permanent damage.
And, of course, no good comprehensive eye examination is complete without a thorough evaluation of your visual acuity. Dr. Katz will perform thorough measurements of your refractive error and discuss how to most effectively enable you to see your best.
