Is it really necessary to get annual eye exams? Well, at EyeCare Associates of San Bernardino, our answer is a resounding yes. There are two very good reasons why you should have your eyes checked by our optometrist in Rialto once every year. First, whether you currently wear eyeglasses and contacts or you’ve never worn either before, your vision undergoes continual change. What was true a year ago can easily be different now. We don’t want you to have to settle for just adequate eyesight when you can have the best vision possible.

The second reason is that as part of our exams, our optometrist in Rialto will screen you for the most common eye diseases. This may not seem like that big a deal, especially if you have no symptoms. But the thing is that cataracts, glaucoma, which can affect anyone at any age, along with other eye conditions, have no obvious signs during their early stages. That means you could have an eye disease that is progressing and you wouldn’t be aware of it until you began to experience a loss of vision or damage to your eyes, either of which might not be reversible. Early detection is linked to the best outcomes with all diseases, including those of the eyes. Macular degeneration is a disease that typically occurs in people age 40 and older, while diabetic retinopathy is applicable to those who have type one or type two diabetes. Of course, you will be screened for those diseases for which you are prone.

There are some indications that you might need new or updated glasses or contacts, such as having blurred vision, having to squint to see things, and headaches that are caused by eye strain. But even if you are not experiencing any of these signs, optimal vision can have a positive impact on your life, making it easier for you to do all the things that are part of your daily routine, including using the computer, reading, and driving. Our optometrist in Rialto will perform a series of tests to gauge your level of vision up close, at a distance, in-between, and side-to-side. Bring in your current prescription lenses if you have them. You will be tested with and without. Call us today and schedule your annual eye exam.

A diabetic eye exam at EyeCare Associates of San Bernardino will help you to avoid the complications and effects that diabetes can cause your eyes. Diabetic retinopathy is a disease that can occur in anyone with either type one or type two diabetes. The longer you are diabetic, the more prone you are to being affected by it. A yearly diabetic eye exam with our Fontana eye doctor will allow early detection of any signs that diabetic retinopathy may be present. And early detection typically yields the most positive results with any disease.

You cannot simply just wait until you notice symptoms and then seek treatment, because diabetic retinopathy often shows no obvious symptoms until it has advanced and become more potentially dangerous to your vision. That is simply not a risk you should be willing to accept. Everyone should have a yearly eye exam, but the need for diabetics is greater. Diabetic retinopathy occurs when high blood sugar leads to damage in your eyes’ blood vessels. If not addressed in a timely fashion, diabetic retinopathy can lead to vision loss, glaucoma, and in extreme circumstances it can even cause death. Our Fontana eye doctor does not mean to alarm you, but it is essential to drive home the importance of staying on top of your eye health when you are managing diabetes.

In between yearly exams, or more frequently if our Fontana eye doctor determines that your eyes should be monitored sooner, there are some symptoms that you should be aware of. They are not always present, but if they are, you should call us and schedule an appointment as soon as you can. Signs to notice are blurred vision, problems perceiving colors, seeing floaters (spots in front of your eyes), and any vision loss. None of these symptoms ensures that you are suffering from diabetic retinopathy, but they should not be ignored.

Diabetes can cause various complications in those are not confined to your eyes, of course. Besides regular diabetic eye exams, following your primary doctor’s guidance on diet, medication, and lifestyle is key to keeping your blood sugar regulated. Our Fontana eye doctor wants you to enjoy the highest level of heath possible and to make sure that diabetic retinopathy does not cause your eyes to be compromised.

Of course, it’s devastating to hear that you’re not only losing your eyesight but you have to live with it. Our compassionate Fontana optometrist wants you to know that you do have somewhere to turn where we pride ourselves on our commitment to providing vision rehabilitation. We understand that cases vary and we take the time to find out what will work best for you. Our main goal is to maximize and preserve your vision so you can function better in your day to day life.

If you are having a hard time reading, recognizing faces, seeing pictures clearly, or with your personal grooming, you are most likely suffering from a condition known as low vision. Due to damage of your sight, low vision is a condition that prevents a person from accomplishing these daily tasks that most people take for granted. Unlike some other eye conditions, our patients with low vision are not able to have their sight corrected with regular glasses, contact lenses, medicine, or surgery, and need special low vision devices to help them see things more clearly.

There really are no ‘fix-all’ devices but there are many popular low vision devices available that can truly help. Desktop devices have large, bright screens that offer up to 75x magnification. With optional computer connectivity, there is a great reading table that serves as a visual aid for reading books and transportable magnification screens and electronic magnifiers work very well for close up and distance viewing. Our Fontana optometrist keeps informed on the latest developments in low vision devices and is well educated in the newest portable, handheld magnifiers which offer electronic, magnified reading on the go.
