At our vision practice we offer customers the ability to get the very best eyeglasses to improve their vision. Patients can also get an eye exam in Alexandria by contacting Brahm & Powell Opticians for a comprehensive eye exam which will be performed in-house by an optometrist of Alexandria Eye Associates.
It is very important that you have an eye exam in Alexandria on a yearly basis in order to make sure that you do not have any hidden eye diseases or disorders. There are many serious vision problems which show no obvious symptoms in the early stages. But, when caught early during a comprehensive eye exam, these eye diseases can be treated and our patient will not need to suffer vision loss. However, when a patient does not have an eye exam, they may actually have an eye disease which will then continue to progress. When this occurs, permanent vision damage can occur, since the patient will not have any treatment. Glaucoma is one such disease which can be easily treated when caught in the early stages. However, if left to progress, a patient with glaucoma can suffer from permanent optic nerve damage. These are just some reasons why it is important that you come into our optical store for a comprehensive eye exam. During an eye exam your eyes will be screened for many different eye diseases including: glaucoma; macular degeneration; cataracts; diabetic retinopathy; dry eye; retinal tears; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. When caught early, glaucoma can be easily treated using medicated eye drops. These eye drops will help to keep your intraocular pressure low so that the glaucoma will not progress. Additionally, if a patient has diabetes, the eye doctor will be able to determine whether or not you are developing any problems with diabetic retinopathy, which will need to be addressed to prevent vision loss.
