It is very important that people have comprehensive eye exams at least once a year in order to make sure that they are not developing any eye diseases or disorders. If you want to have an eye exam, and are looking for a place where you can have an affordable eye exam and are seen by a great eye doctor, we urge you to visit our top-notch optometrist at Urban Eyes. At our vision practice you can have a cheap eye exam in the Bronx performed by an expert optometrist.
There are many eye diseases which show no symptoms in the early stages. However, if left to go on untreated they may eventually cause permanent vision damage. Glaucoma is a common eye disease that has such minor symptoms in the early stages that it is generally not noticed by the patient. However, over time the symptoms from glaucoma will proceed to the point where your vision is seriously impaired. If glaucoma is diagnosed very early, as it would be during our comprehensive eye exam, you can receive simple treatment which will keep the glaucoma from advancing. However, if you do not have a comprehensive eye exam, you may well end up suffering permanent damage to the optic nerve in the eye. This is just one reason why you want to have a comprehensive and cheap eye exam in the Bronx at Urban Eyes. Other eye diseases and disorders which are routinely screened for during our eye exams are: macular degeneration; cataracts; diabetic retinopathy; dry eyes; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. During our exams, your eyes will also be checked for refractive errors. If it is determined that you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, our optometrist will write a lens prescription for you. Many patients are excited to learn that even if they are diagnosed with astigmatism or dry eye that they can now safely and comfortably have their vision corrected with contact lenses.
