Maintain your eye health with the help of an optometrist.
An optometrist is a doctor who can diagnose, detect, and treat diseases and disorders related to the eyes and vision. If you are looking for a new optometrist in the Cornelius, North Carolina area, come see us at Vision Center of Lake Norman! You’ll love our patient-oriented environment, great service, and selection of frames and lenses.
The optometrist at our office, Dr. Chuck Monson, is a graduate of the Pennsylvania College of Optometry and a member of the American Optometric Association. He enjoys working with his patients every day and helping them find the right solution for treating vision and eye-related problems.
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.
It is very important to get an annual eye exam because many eye diseases cannot be detected by only checking your vision. Glaucoma, macular degeneration, ocular melanoma and diabetes are only a few examples of conditions found in the eye. Many people who come to our office believe they only need to see an optometrist when they’re having trouble with their vision. While you should always make an appointment with us when these things happen, you should still make an annual appointment to have your eyes checked out, even if you are not noticing any vision problems.
During your routine eye appointment, Dr. Monson will perform a series of tests to check for eye diseases and evaluate your vision. Your eye exam will consist of using the latest technology and many instruments. If you need a prescription for glasses or contacts, he can issue that as this time as well.
If it’s been a while since you last saw an optometrist, make your next appointment at Vision Center of Lake Norman today. Call our office today for more information about our services and how we can help you maintain your vision and eye health!
