Eye Doctor in Walnut Creek
Can you remember the last time you had a comprehensive eye exam? If not, you should probably make an appointment to be seen by one of our expert optometrists for an eye exam. It is very easy for us to take our good eyesight for granted. However, it is important to know that there are many serious eye diseases that can permanently damage your vision that you can have without even knowing it. This is because some eye diseases, like glaucoma, show no symptoms in the early stages. However, the good news is that if glaucoma is caught in the early stages before any damage has been done, you can be easily treated and not need to ever suffer any vision loss from the disease. This is just one reason why you want to visit our eye doctor in Walnut Creek
for a comprehensive eye exam.
Should you also ever need any type of eye care, our optometrist at Shigio Optometric Group is able to offer you thorough diagnosis and treatment. We are very happy to have several great eye doctors available to you. Our optometrists are: Dr. Ronald S. Shigio and Dr. Lauri K. Shigio. Both of our eye care experts are thoroughly trained in the latest state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment techniques. At our eye care practice our eye doctor in Walnut Creek
is happy to be able to offer thorough eye exams for all members of the family. During the first part of an eye exam our eye doctor will examine your refractive vision to make sure you do not have any problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. If it is determined that you do have a refractive error our optometrist will be able to write a lens prescription for you so that you will be able to see clearly and crisply once again.
As part of our comprehensive eye exam, our eye doctor in Walnut Creek
will also examine your eyes for any eye diseases or disorders. Among the many eye diseases that you will be screened for are: glaucoma; cataracts; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; retinal tears; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. Your eyes will be tested to make sure that you do not have elevated pressure within your eyes. This could be a sign of glaucoma. You will also be given medicated eye drops which will cause your eyes to dilate. This way our eye doctor will be able to clearly see the interior of your eye, all the way back to the retina for examination. If you would like an appointment to be seen by one of our fine optometrist contact us today.
