Eye Exams in Medford and Grants Pass

Routine eye exams are an important way to maintain healthy vision. Regular visits to your eye doctor can help diagnose and treat symptoms of eye disease and abnormalities. Although it is easy to put off having your eyes examined until you begin experiencing obvious problems, many eye diseases have few or no warning signs before they damage your vision. Diagnosing eye disease as early as possible gives you the best chance of maintaining your vision. If you have not been to the eye doctor recently, and are experiencing any of the following symptoms, call us today to schedule an exam:

  • Frequent headaches or fatigue
  • Trouble focusing
  • Blurry or double vision
  • Burning or tired eyes
  • Light sensitivity
  • Prolonged computer use
  • You are in good general health with no existing eye disease
  • Your vision prescription has been stable for at least one year

The importance of having routine eye exams

Annual eye exams are extremely useful in discovering and preventing disease, preserving healthy vision, and maintaining overall wellbeing. In fact, routine vision exams may lead to the discovery of high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, strokes, kidney problems, brain tumors, and conditions that affect other parts of the body. Many diseases of the eye itself do not present symptoms until they have already damaged your vision. Once your sight is lost, it is often impossible to restore. Keeping your prescription updated and your eye care visits regular also helps prevent visual strain, headaches, blurred vision, and eye sensitivity.

Healthy vision is priceless, and worth protecting for a lifetime. We are honored to partner with you in maintaining your best possible vision. New patients are always welcome—just call our offices in Medford or Grants Pass to schedule an appointment.
