An optometrist is a professional who can help you protect your eye health and maintain your vision.
Someone who examines, diagnoses, treats, and manages conditions of the eye is an optometrist. For instance, your optometrist can diagnose certain vision conditions, like nearsightedness and farsightedness, as well as eye diseases, such as glaucoma. Your optometrist can also identify and help you manage systemic diseases that affect the eyes, like diabetes.
At Vision Center of Lake Norman, we are focused on helping you preserve your vision and eye health throughout your life. Has it been a while since your last appointment with an optometrist? Schedule an appointment with our office at your earliest convenience.
Are Your Allergies Affecting Your Eyesight?
Whether you are a seasonal allergy sufferer or deal with allergy-related symptoms year-round, you may have noticed that your eyes seem to suffer, too. Is it really your allergies that are causing your blurry vision and itchy eyes, or could it be something else? Allergies tend to create itchiness and dryness in your eyes. If you find that your eye discomfort persists then it is important to make an appointment with your eye care professional.
