Your eyes provide early detection for many different diseases that can affect more than just your vision. At Hartsdale Family Eyecare your routine vision and eye health evaluation includes tests that look for signs and symptoms of many different diseases, not just those affect your eyes. Illnesses that may be discovered early on through signs in your eyes include high blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid disease and even heart disease and high cholesterol.
During your routine eye exam and evaluation we will make sure your eyes are healthy and look for the signs and symptoms of eye diseases that can be prevented and treated early. We evaluate your eyes for glaucoma; a disease that initially may have no obvious signs. Early detection of glaucoma is crucial to prevent the loss of sight. We also routinely check for early signs of macular degeneration.
We monitor your eyes for cataracts and determine when your vision can no longer be corrected with conventional lenses and the internal lens of your eye needs replacement.
Dry eyes and external eye conditions are also detected and treated to make sure your eyes are comfortable and your vision as clear as possible. At Hartsdale Family Eyecare we are up to date on the latest dry eye treatment including prescription and non prescription eye drops, lid cleansers, as well as vitamins that help maintain eye health and comfort.
You will also get the best vision correction. Dr. Schwartz not only tests your refractive error for glasses and/or contacts if needed, she also evaluates your binocular vision or how your eyes work together. When your eyes do not move together and align, this can cause eye strain and headaches, especially during reading or computer use. We conduct a series of tests to assess the ability of your eye muscles to make sure both eyes are working as a team.
