Diabetic Eye Exams
Diabetes can affect all parts of the body, including the eyes. Because of the eye’s detailed vasculature it is an area of high concern for problems. Also, the ability to see inside the eye and its vasculature allows eye doctors to get a detailed assessment of how a diabetic’s overall health is and report that information to their regular doctor for further regulation of their diabetic care.
Pediatric Eye Exams
Eye exams for children are extremely important, because 5 to 10 percent of preschoolers and 25 percent of school-aged children have vision problems.* A child’s vision includes more than seeing 20/20. Children need basic skills related to good eyesight for learning including: near vision, distance vision, binocular coordination, eye movement skills, focusing ability, hand eye coordination and peripheral awareness.
