At Texas State Optical in Santa Fe, we aim to help you and your family in Galveston live every day with your clearest, most comfortable vision possible. Regularly scheduled comprehensive eye exams are an essential part of this aim. Comprehensive eye exams are important for continued eye and vision health for every member of the family from your 1 month old baby, to his/her 90 year old grandparents, and everyone in between.
Children's comprehensive eye exams are essential for a number of reasons. Among the most important reasons is that proper vision is essential for initial and continued success in a child's schoolwork and extra-curricular activities. Since the eyes are responsible for the vast majority of sensory experience, and are the main vehicle through which most of us learn, it is extremely important to safeguard this most important instrument of education and experience. Regular eye exams are also important for children to ensure early detection and treatment of eye conditions like amblyopia and strabismus, which can be treated quite easily in early childhood, but become much more complicated if allowed to advance and develop into later childhood and adulthood.
Many adults mistakenly believe that since their eyeglasses or contact lens prescription is stable and rarely, if ever, changes, regularly scheduled comprehensive eye exams are no longer important. However, in many respects it is even more important now than when you were younger, in order to ensure early detection of sight-threatening conditions, such as glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration, which are associated with age. Adults over 40 or those with bodily illnesses such as diabetes are particularly vulnerable, as statistics indicate that your risk of developing these and other dangerous eye conditions increases several fold after this point.
A comprehensive eye exam in Galveston includes many important tests to help determine your overall eye health and check to see if you require corrective lenses. From a simple eye chart to advanced OCT technology to produce the sharpest image possible of your eye, we have what it takes to make sure that you and your family have healthy eyes and vision for many years to come.
