Most adults and seniors should see their Optometrist at least once per year.
However, some patients, such as those who have undergone laser eye surgery or have other underlying health conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes, should see their Optometrist more frequently. Individuals with diabetes require extra care and attention when it comes to their eye health, which is why we are pleased to offer specialized Diabetic Eye Exams.
Conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure can increase your risk of developing serious eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration, but everyone is potentially at risk. In their early stages, these serious conditions can only be detected using a comprehensive eye exam, and if they are allowed to progress they can result in permanent vision loss. To help keep your eyes happy and healthy, SJEA is proud to offer comprehensive eye disease diagnosis and management services.
