Port Charlotte Eye Test
It is important to have a comprehensive eye exam at least once a year to make sure that your eyes are remaining healthy. But even if you have had an eye exam recently, if you develop certain symptoms it is important that you immediately come in to see our optometrist at Optical Outlets. At our office, you can receive an eye test in Port Charlotte to make sure that your eyes are not experiencing serious vision problems.
If you have eyes that are red and itchy, you may simply have seasonal allergies. However, if these problems develop, and you have not been diagnosed with allergies, you will want to come to our see our optometrist to make sure that you have an eye allergy problem and not an eye infection. Our eye doctor can provide you with a prescription for medications which can help ease your eye allergies in certain situations. If your vision is blurred, it is important to come in to see our eye doctor to make sure you are not developing any serious vision problems. Both glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy can create problems with blurred vision. Immediate diagnosis is necessary to make sure that you stand the greatest chance of not developing any permanent vision problems. Blurred vision can also be caused by cataracts or dry eye. When you have dry eye, the blurred vision can be intermittent.
These problems need to be addressed as well, but not on an immediate basis in order to prevent vision loss. If you are experiencing a sudden increase in the number of floaters in your eyes and have sudden flashes of light, you will also want to come in to see our optometrist on an immediate basis for an eye test in Port Charlotte. These symptoms may be a sign of something completely harmless, or they can be caused by a retinal tear which can lead to an extremely serious retinal detachment.
