Comprehensive Eye Exams

It is important to note that a comprehensive eye exam is your number one defense against eye diseases or conditions that can cause your vision to deteriorate over time. Many eye diseases cause few symptoms – some don’t even cause noticeable changes in vision. As a result, they can go undetected for a long time. A comprehensive eye exam can help identify diseases in their early stages when they’re most treatable.
