Announced as part of a move to support eye health throughout local communities, the expansion aims to help patients detect the presence of cataracts or certain ocular conditions stemming from diabetes. Eyes Now cites ongoing advice from the CDC recommending that diabetics undergo annual checks in the name of responsible eyecare.
Eyes Now explains that on top of the host of problems it can cause for sufferers, diabetes can lead to the development of impaired vision and eye diseases. As well as cataracts, diabetics are at an increased risk of presenting with retinopathy and open-angle glaucoma. The Dallas optometrists advise that eye exams are vital in catching these conditions and ensuring that treatment can begin.
According to the practice, such exams are also crucial in that they can help to discover signs of diabetes, encouraging patients to seek further medical advice. As such, due to the many advantages of eye exams, Eyes Now implores diabetic patients to book an appointment at the Dallas practice.
Dallas patients will benefit from the extensive range of eye health assessment techniques offered by Eyes Now during examinations. These include fundus photography and optical coherence tomography, or OCT scans. In addition, Eyes Now also carries out procedures designed to test the damage that an eye disease may have caused to a patient’s eyesight.
A practice representative elaborated: “A visual field test is a way for your eye care professional to determine how wide your field of view is when you are focused on a central point. This test can help determine if eye disease has resulted in blind spots in your vision.”
Eyes Now is able to administer eye examinations in Dallas alongside a range of other ocular health services and treatments. The veteran-owned family practice further provides exams for children alongside laser eye surgery consultation options and assessments for prescribing eyeglasses or contact lenses – as per the unique needs of its patients.
