Walnut Creek Eye Doctor
When you schedule a comprehensive eye exam once per year with our Walnut Creek eye doctor
, you are taking a huge step toward assuring your optimal eye well-being and achieving the best vision that you're capable of. Here at Shigio Optometric Group, your eyes are our business. That means prescribing needed eyewear if you're nearsighted, farsighted, have an astigmatism, or some combination of those vision concerns. It also means regularly screening you for common eye diseases. And if you're experiencing symptoms and need eye care, you can always depend on us.
Our annual eye exam is the first line of defense when it comes to taking care of your eyes and supporting your vision. That's because your eyesight needs are always evolving. You may have never needed glasses or contacts before, but now might be the right time to start. Even if you've been wearing corrective lenses for years, an update to your existing prescription could be just the thing to elevate you from adequate vision to outstanding vision. We have single vision, bifocal, and multi-focal options for your lenses, so no matter what your requirements are, you can be sure that our Walnut Creek eye doctor
will fulfill them.
Cataracts and glaucoma are two examples of eye diseases that can happen to anyone, regardless of age, heredity, or medical history. Other conditions, such as macular degeneration, are only a concern after the age of 40. And diabetic retinopathy should be screened for if you have either type one or type two diabetes. Our Walnut Creek eye doctor
will perform baseline tests for common eye diseases that are applicable to you, along with any additional testing that is needed to form a definitive diagnosis. You should know that while not all eye diseases can be cured, all of them can be treated and managed in order to make certain that you suffer the least amount of difficulties and that you can maintain your vision to the greatest extent possible. It's important to know that most of these diseases don't have any symptoms in their early stages. By the time you become aware that you have them, it is usually because you have experienced eye damage or vision loss to some degree. If, however, you notice any indications of problems, be it eye pain, cloudy vision, itchy eyes, red eyes, or anything else that concerns you, always contact us and schedule an appointment regardless of how recently you last had an eye exam.
