Regular visits to your eye doctor can protect your vision at every stage of life. Whether you need a change of prescription, care for dry eyes, or have vision problems related to aging, good vision care can help. At Eye 1st Vision Center in Sandy Springs, GA, we offer care for a variety of vision and eye conditions.
Your optometrist in Sandy Springs can help you with nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, so you can see more clearly for work tasks, recreational activities and social events. We provide comprehensive eye exams and can provide a range of eyeglasses styles, as well as ensure your contact lenses give you a comfortable fit.
Dry eye syndrome is a growing problem caused by long hours of computer use or from working in dry, dusty environments. Sometimes, dry eyes are caused by simply aging or from medications you are taking. We can help with prescription eye drops to increase eye moisture or prevent drainage of fluids, so you can enjoy greater eye comfort.
If you are considering LASIK vision correction surgery, we can provide pre-surgery consultation to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure. After surgery, we can ensure your eyes are healing properly and that your vision is adjusting normally.
Individuals with low vision, due to aging or a particular condition, may need more frequent changes in prescription for eyeglasses. We can also help with advice on products and devices to help maximize your vision for everyday tasks.
We can help with eye infections and troublesome foreign objects trapped in or around the eye. Conjunctivitis (pink eye) quickly clears up with antibiotic eye medications or other treatments. We can also help remove tiny debris in the eyes that cause tearing, redness, and discomfort.
During your eye exam, the eye doctor will look for early signs of common eye diseases, such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration, so you can begin treatment to slow the progress of these diseases. Regular eye exams are even more important for individuals with diabetes, and your doctor will look for early signs of diabetic retinopathy that can cause vision problems.
