At Henderson Eye Care, we have provided comprehensive eye exams for over 25 years. You can find our main office in Springfield, MA. An eye examination is a battery of tests performed by an ophthalmologist, optometrist, or orthoptist assessing vision and ability to focus on and discern objects and other tests and examinations pertaining to the eyes. Many eye diseases are silent or asymptomatic. Therefore, we recommend all people have periodic and thorough eye examinations as part of routine primary care.
Diabetic patients require routine eye examinations to detect and treat related eye problems as early as possible. Most diabetic patients are frequently examined by an internist or endocrinologist, who works closely with the ophthalmologist.
The diagnosis of diabetic retinopathy is made following a detailed examination of the retina with an ophthalmoscope. Most patients with diabetic retinopathy are referred to vitreoretinal surgeons who specialize in treating this disease.
Routine Eye Exams
Eye examinations may detect potentially treatable blinding eye diseases, ocular manifestations of systemic disease, or signs of tumors or other brain anomalies.
Your eye doctor does much more than determining your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses during a comprehensive eye exam. They will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team, and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.
For questions regarding eye exams or diabetic eye exams or to schedule an appointment, please give us a call at 413-733-1818.
