The health of your eyes is just as important as the rest of your health, making proper eye care a necessity. This includes attending regular eyeeye exams with an optometrist who can check for changes in vision, as well as any other potential eye health concerns. These visits can address problems as soon as possible, helping you maintain healthier eyes. At Skowron Eye Care in Elmhurst, IL, Dr. Mark Skowron, Dr. Kerry John, Dr. Lavender Streiff, and Dr. Mirjana McCarthy are here to help!

 

Eye Exams

Attending regular exams from an optometrist at our Elmhurst office is one of the most important ways you can care for your eyes. These exams allow your eye doctor to monitor your vision and detect any changes sooner rather than later. If these vision changes are affecting your ability to see clearly, an exam can indicate if you would benefit from prescription glasses or contacts. If you already wear glasses or contacts, an eye exam can indicate if a change to your existing prescription is needed.

Eye exams can also reveal potential problems with the health of your eyes. Left undetected and untreated, some eye conditions can become worse or even lead to additional eye problems. Examples of conditions that could affect eye health or vision include:

  • Glaucoma
  • Cataracts
  • Blocked tear ducts
  • Macular degeneration
  • Corneal degeneration
  • Corneal ulcers
  • Pupil anomalies
  • Styes

 

Emergency and Urgent Eye Care

It's also important to see an eye doctor when changes to your vision suddenly occur, even if you are not yet due for a routine exam. Some situations that require emergency or urgent eye care with an optometrist include loss of vision, injuries to the eye, seeing light flashes, spots in the eye, as well as conditions such as conjunctivitis (i.e. pink eye). Allergies can also affect the eyes and an optometrist can offer recommendations for maintaining eye health and comfort when allergies are acting up.
