At Vision Quest, our East Rockaway glaucoma screening is done quickly and efficiently so that you can be in and out of our offices in no time. A glaucoma screening is so important, especially as our patients get older. Glaucoma is an eye disease that comes on slowly and without warning, but can be treated if it’s caught in time. Glaucoma may cause vision loss if it is allowed to progress and become worse over time. Any changes in vision should be reported to your eye doctor immediately. Changes to vision could mean that there is an issue such as glaucoma or cataracts developing.
Our East Rockaway glaucoma screening is done in our offices and is essential to eye health and should be performed annually to avoid problems in the future that may have gone undetected.Glaucoma and cataracts both can impede vision and may come on slowly. If you wear glasses, we’ll have you come in for a comprehensive eye exam each year and a vision test as needed to change your prescription. Some patients may have no change in their eyeglass prescription for years at a time. During your exam, we will check for nearsightedness, farsightedness and other vision issues that may require the use of corrective lenses. Corrective lenses help you to see better and to enhance your vision.
Patients may prefer either eyeglasses or contact lenses for their corrective lenses, depending on the patient’s preference and their prescription needs. An East Rockaway glaucoma screening helps us determine if glaucoma is present so that it can be treated accordingly. Our owner, Jennifer Kuhar, has over 15 years experience in the vision industry, and our optometrist, Dr. Xiaoying Zhu is a member of the American Optometric Association and New York State Optometric Association.
