Can you remember the last time you had a comprehensive eye exam? If not, you will probably want to contact us at our eye care practice for an appointment to see our eye doctor. At our practice our top-notch optometrist is Dr. James F. Deavers. Dr. Deavers provides comprehensive Lincolnville eye exams for our patients at our practice, James Deavers, OD, PA.
Whether you wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, you will be able to get the eye exam you need so that you will be able to have your eyes thoroughly checked and get a new lens prescription. We provide contact lens exams and fittings and comprehensive eye exams as part of our routine eye care. It is very important to get periodic eye exams because there are many eye diseases and disorders that show no symptoms in the early stages. However, this does not mean that your eyes are not being damaged by these diseases. For example, glaucoma shows no symptoms in the early stages; however, a patient can have permanent vision loss simply by having glaucoma which is still in the early stages. The good news is that if patients have Lincolnville eye exams on a regularly scheduled basis, glaucoma will be diagnosed in the early stages and will be able to be easily treated and kept from advancing. This means that our patient will never need to lose any eye sight to this serious disease.
During our eye exams our patients’ eyes are checked for any refractive vision problems including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. If any of these eye problems are diagnosed our eye doctor will be able to provide you with a new vision prescription so that you will be able to see clearly and crisply once again. During the course of the exam our optometrist will also screen your eyes for many different eye diseases including: glaucoma; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; retinal tears; cataracts; and problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. During a contact lens exam our optometrist will also take measurements of your eyes including the curve of your cornea and the size of your iris. If you would like to have our optometrist see your family for Lincolnville eye exams, simply make an appointment at our office. We look forward to welcoming you into our eye care family.
