Did you know that many general health problems, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, are often detected during a comprehensive eye examination? This is because the eyes are the only place in the body that veins and arteries can be viewed without invasive surgery. Also, since many serious sight-threatening eye diseases do not present symptoms until vision loss has occurred, it is very important to give as much attention to your eye health as you do your teeth.
Glaucoma, often called the “Silent Thief of Sight”, is one of the important reasons to have a yearly eye exam. Learn about your risk factors and how you can maintain good vision.
Hearing loss can cause isolation and depression. The good news is that hearing instruments are getting smaller and better. The new digital models will give you better hearing than has ever been possible before. See our Licensed Hearing Aid Specialist, Shawn Anderson for a FREE hearing evaluation.
