Our Comprehensive Eye examination includes screening for:

  • Diabetes
    Annual eye examinations are necessary for early detection of diabetic retinopathy. Good control of blood sugar levels will prevent early onset of diabetic retinopathy.
  • Hypertension
    Hypertension, also referred to as high blood pressure, is a condition in which the arteries have persistently elevated blood pressure. Poorly controlled hypertension can cause damage to the eye.
  • Glaucoma
    Causes damage to the optic nerve and can result in vision loss or blindness if not detected early.
  • Keratoconus
