Most patients agree that they will make an appointment for an eye examination if they are experiencing blurred or double vision, pain or the feeling of pressure in their eyes, headaches, difficulty seeing while driving at night, trouble distinguishing objects in the distance, struggles when reading small print or feel their normal prescription eyewear is no longer providing enough assistance. However, despite the seriousness of these problematic symptoms, many potentially eye diseases which can permanently cause vision loss, can begin without any noticeable pain, discomfort or change in sight ability. Regular eye examinations with your Dorchester optician, James Deavers, OD, PA is the primary and most reliable method of safeguarding the health of your eyes as well as your crystal clear vision.
During a comprehensive eye examination by James Deavers, OD, PA, patients can expect to receive not only visual acuity testing, but an inclusive physical exam of your eye and its structures. As your premier Dochester optician, we utilize the latest equipment and innovative techniques to accurately measure, assess, and analyze the various aspects of your eye to determine the presence of glaucoma, cataracts, retinal issues and more. Unlike other aspects of your body, your eye health may be compromised or deteriorating without your knowledge, any pain or other indications. Additionally, we will conduct a detailed discussion which will allow us to acquire any information regarding your current or past medical conditions as well as the use of prescription medications which may impact the health of your eyes.
Once we have made our conclusions and present you with our diagnosis, if any recommendations for treatment, we also encourage you to ask as many questions as you may need to fully understand your eye health. Whether our recommended course of treatment is simply a new prescription for corrective eye wear or any other eye care service, we will take as much time as you need to explain all related information about your eye health. James Deavers, OD, PA, your Dorchester optician, as well as the professional team members of our staff, look forward to meeting with you soon and working with you to preserve or restore your healthy eyes and vision.
