The eyes can be affected by a number of conditions. These conditions can compromise the health of the eyes and lead to vision loss, which may become permanent if not treated. At Gordon Wong Eye Designs & Optometry, our experienced team of eye doctors offers treatment for the most common eye conditions. However, it is important for patients to know when it is time to seek treatment.
Not all eye conditions result in noticeable side effects right away, so regular vision care, including comprehensive eye exams is vital to preserving eye health and ensuring timely treatment of eye conditions. Although routine eye exams can diagnose common eye conditions, it is important for patients to be aware of these conditions, what symptoms they may cause, and when they may show up. Here, we go over when common eye conditions develop so that our La Jolla, CA patients can be proactive about their eye health.
There are many eye conditions that could develop throughout a person’s lifetime. While most of these can emerge at any time, there is a timeframe in which each is most likely to develop. Below, we provide a brief description of some of the most common eye conditions.
Nearly every eye condition will lead to a gradual deterioration of the patient’s vision. However, there are treatment options to slow the progression of these conditions, eliminate them for good, or at least allow a patient to continue to enjoy clear vision through the use of prescription lenses. Our optometrists are happy to provide each patient with a personalized treatment plan that will address their unique needs.
The risk of eye conditions increases as a person ages, but they can develop at any time. The best way to protect against long-term damage from eye diseases is through routine eye care services, such as those offered at Gordon Wong Eye Designs & Optometry.
