August is National Eye Exam Month

August 15, 2015

August in National Eye Exam month – a timely reminder that getting your eyes checked regularly is an important part of your annual healthcare routine. Many vision stealing diseases and conditions are slow to progress and may even be asymptomatic until sight begins to diminish. Yearly exams become increasingly important after the age of 65, when diseases such as macular degeneration and glaucoma become more common. This National Eye Exam Month, regardless of your age, make an appointment with your optometrists to help protect your vision now and into the future. If you are diagnosed with a potentially sight-stealing condition, call our San Diego retina specialists at (760) 412-5136 to schedule a consultation and learn all about your treatment options.

Diabetic Eye Diseases

It is important for all people to increase the frequency of eye exams as they age. However, diabetics need to be committed to frequent exams no matter what their age. Diabetic eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema can occur at any stage of life – and risks are increased when diabetes is not fully controlled.

If you are diabetic, our San Diego eye doctors strongly encourage you to make yearly eye exams a priority. Combined with proper disease management, these exams can be very useful in helping ensure your vision remains strong for a lifetime.

If you have been diagnosed with a retinal disorder in the San Diego area, please contact California Retina Associates to schedule an appointment at our Chula Vista or El Centro location to learn how our advanced treatment options can help protect your vision.
