Statistics show that one in five Americans put off having yearly eye exams. At our Summerlin South eye care center, Dr. Romy Park, OD, and our well-educated staff, can’t stress enough that without regular eye exams, serious problems that can threaten your eyesight can be missed, as well as their necessary treatments. Treatment options can be vision therapy, a prescription for contact lenses or glasses, eye vitamins, or medical treatment for eye disease. From children to senior patients, regular eye exams are important to see more clearly now and to make sure you see clearly in the future.
Regardless of age or physical condition, regular eye exams are a necessary part of complete health maintenance. Vision is also closely linked to the learning process so eye exams for children play a very important role since visions problems that are left undetected will affect schoolwork. Therefore, if you see that your child is performing poorly at school, don’t hesitate to have their eyes examined at our Summerlin South eye care office. To keep their prescriptions current and to check for any early signs of eye disease, adults should have their eyes tested regularly as well. Dr. Park provides exceptional and compassionate eye care, starting out with comprehensive eye exams for the entire family. Dr. Park and our staff stay educated on state-of the-art procedures in order to offer the most advanced treatment options to our patients. One of those procedures is digital retinal photography.
Digital Retinal Photography is new technology that represents the most recent in eye disease detection. It allows us to evaluate your retina more thoroughly, which is the sensitive tissue in your eye, responsible for vision. The retina is vulnerable to a variety of diseases that can lead to loss of vision. Digital Retinal Photography gives us a more inclusive way to view your eyes than was available before and allows us to conduct a more thorough exam. Digital Photography is a very welcome addition to your Summerlin South eye care as it adds to our ability to evaluate the complete health of your eyes.
