Common Vision Conditions
Vision conditions can be broken down into refractive errors and diseases. Refractive errors occur when the shape of the eye is not perfectly round, and as a result, light hits the back of the eye at an incorrect angle or angles. These conditions are not dangerous to your health, but they can be disabling:
- Myopia (nearsightedness)
- Hyperopia (farsightedness)
- Presbyopia (age-related near vision issues)
Diseases include things like glaucoma and macular degeneration. They are health conditions that can present a hazard to your sight if not properly treated and managed:
- Macular degeneration
- Diabetic retinopathy
We also provide diagnostics and screening for patients who have symptoms of an eye disease or who have no known vision conditions but need their annual exam. Going to the eye doctor for an annual exam can help you protect your eyes from the invisible damage that may occur during the early stages of many eye diseases.
When it comes to children, it is important to note that some things that may look like learning difficulties or clumsiness are actually vision-related. A child who does not see well may have any number of academic difficulties, including trouble reading, frustration- and boredom-based behavior problems, and more. Having your child attend routine exams will help ensure that they get eyeglasses if and when they need them.
Treatment and Management At Optometry Medical Group
Our Seattle optometrist helps patients treat and manage their eye conditions in a number of ways on a regular basis:
- Annual vision exams
- Fitting and prescribing eyeglasses
- Fitting and prescribing contact lenses
- Screening for ocular diseases
- Managing ocular diseases
- Educating patients about ocular health
Your annual vision exam is an important way to ensure that your eyes are being taken care of. Ocular diseases can be silent until the damage is already done, which is a good reason for everyone to be screened on a regular basis. Refractive errors, while not dangerous to your health, can have important impacts on your daily life, including work, school, and activities.
