Vision is one of your most precious gifts and needs to be monitored to prevent permanent damage from occurring. Routine eye examinations are the cornerstone of protecting your vision and this is especially important as we grow older. Many sight stealing diseases can be treated or prevented with early care. Here at Southwest Virginia Eye Center we have the most modern and sensitive technology for early detection of these eye diseases.
Patients with certain medical conditions such as diabetes, lupus, vascular disorders, patients taking plaquinil, and many more are also likely to develop eye involvement with resulting loss of vision and even blindness. These conditions can be detected and corrected before there is any significant loss of vision with early complete eye examinations.
