YOUR EYES ARE OUR PRIORITY
Simply Optometry proudly offers medical eye care services to address all of your eye or vision related problems. Your eyes give our doctors a window to your internal health, allowing us to detect not only eye-specific problems such as glaucoma or macular degeneration, but also systemic conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Eye doctors are an important part of your overall health and wellness team.
Our doctors do take pride in prescribing glasses and contacts to correct your vision, but we especially care that your eyes are healthy and functioning well. As optometrists we specialize in preventative eye care, meaning that we try to detect conditions and manage your eye health before any problems develop. If and when any problems are detected during your eye exam that we cannot treat, we will refer you to a proper specialist depending on the problem.
VISION VS EYE HEALTH
There is an important difference between vision and eye health. Just because someone has good vision or has never needed glasses, it does not mean that their eyes are healthy. It is just as important to have an eye examination with an eye doctor yearly as it is to have a physical with a primary care doctor. Our eyes are the windows to the health inside of our bodies. In fact, the eyes are the only place in the body where nerves and blood vessels can be directly examined for disorders without needing a surgical procedure to do so!
Many problems that our eyes develop later in life begin when we are young. Developing good visual habits and hygiene help to prevent these problems from happening. Maintaining routine eye care will also allow your eye doctor to detect problems early and treat them accordingly. You only get one set of eyes- take good care of them by visiting us yearly at Simply Optometry!
