Ladson Eye Exams

Here at the office of Dr. James Deavers, the number one Ladson eye doctor, you can trust that you are in the hands of capable professionals that truly care about providing you with the highest quality eye care services throughout all of the stages of your life. As you grow older, your eyes become increasingly susceptible to more eye conditions and eye problems in general, and so it is important to have an eye care professional, like Dr. Deavers, who you can trust with your eye health and vision preservation. One of the most common eye conditions that our Ladson eye doctor diagnoses and treats in older patients is macular degeneration.

Macular degeneration is actually not just one disease, but a group of related eye illnesses that have to do with a loss of detail vision, or central vision. The most common form of macular degeneration is age-related macular degeneration, which is why our Ladson eye doctor stresses the importance of knowing about conditions like macular degeneration as you advance in age. Age-related macular degeneration typically affects patients over the age of sixty. Age-related macular degeneration comes in two different forms—either “wet” age-related macular degeneration, or “dry” age-related macular degeneration. Dry age-related macular degeneration is a much slower process than wet ARMD, and dry ARMD is the more common form out of the two. Because dry ARMD develops so gradually, it can be hard to realize that there is a problem until the condition has gotten significantly far in its development. That is why it is important to have your eyes examined regularly, especially as you grow older.

Regular eye exams allow our Ladson eye doctor find warning signs that you would not be able to otherwise, allowing treatments to be recommended earlier and in most cases making the condition much more manageable in the long run. Wet ARMD creates much more noticeable symptoms, and so if you are experiencing sudden changes in your vision you should schedule an appointment with us as soon as possible so that we can preserve your vision and do our best to prevent the condition form getting worse.

If you are receiving glasses for the first time or changing your optical prescription, please allow two to three weeks for your eyes to adjust to the new lenses. Many times, our patients will complain of mild dizziness, headaches, or even slight nausea while their eyes adjust to their new prescription, but all of these symptoms are normal. Often times, our patients will put off updating their optical prescription, which means their eyes have adjusted to using a weaker prescription and not seeing clearly. When their prescription is finally updated, it may seem as though their vision is “too perfect,” or their optical prescription “too strong.” Given a couple of weeks, your eyes will adjust to the higher lenses prescribed by your Ridgeville eye doctor, Dr. Deavers. However, if these symptoms, eye pain, headaches, blurry vision, still persist after a few weeks time, please visit Dr. Deavers as you be suffering from an undiagnosed eye disease or condition.

In addition to assessing and treating refractive errors, Dr. James Deavers, your local Ladson eye doctor, also diagnoses and treats common eye diseases. A range of optometric services including diagnosis and treatment of vision related learning disabilities, as well as advanced and primary glaucoma treatment are offered at our Ladson Optometrist office. Glaucoma is an eye disease that develops when the eye’s drainage ducts become clogged, increasing the pressure inside the eyes and causing damage to the optic nerve. Patients suffering from glaucoma typically do not have any noticeable symptoms until the disease is very advanced and vision loss begins to occur. Because of its asymptomatic nature, it is important to have regular eye exams with Dr. Deavers, where screenings can be performed to check for glaucoma.

There are several medications available to manage glaucoma. Most of these are in eye drop form and either increase fluid drainage from the eye or decrease the production of ocular fluid. Medication must be taken at regular intervals on an ongoing basis, since glaucoma can be treated, but not fully cured. Glaucoma can also be treated with laser surgery to lower eye pressure and help prevent further damage.

Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in the United States, particularly for older people. Loss of sight can often be prevented with early diagnosis and treatment from Ladson optometrist, Dr. James Deavers. Visit our Ladson optical store today and receive an eye exam to test for glaucoma.
