If you are experiencing any vision problems, you will want to visit us for a complete eye exam at Eye Town. Our expert and highly trained optometrist, Dr. David R. Albrecht, can provide you with complete eye care as well as glaucoma management. He will also let you know if you will need to see an eye surgeon regarding Cedar City UT glaucoma laser surgery.
It is very important to have comprehensive eye exams on an annual basis because many eye diseases and disorders show no symptoms in the early stages. For example, glaucoma shows no symptoms when it is first emerging, but it still can be diagnosed during a comprehensive eye exam. In the early stages, our eye doctor can provide you with medicated eye drops which will keep your intraocular high-pressure at a safe level so that the glaucoma will not advance. However, if the glaucoma is not caught in time, and it does advance, you may need to have Cedar City UT glaucoma laser surgery in order to keep the glaucoma from causing additional vision damage. Our eye doctor can help to manage your glaucoma and monitor your vision on a periodic basis to make sure that the glaucoma is not advancing. If glaucoma runs in your family, you may want to have glaucoma testing on a periodic basis at our vision practice to make sure you are not developing this eye disease. Untreated glaucoma will eventually cause optic nerve damage which cannot be fixed. However, when glaucoma is caught early, it can usually be kept from advancing so that you will not experience vision loss. During our comprehensive eye exams, your eyes will also be screened for other eye diseases including: cataracts; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; retinal tears; dry eyes; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina.
