Taking care of your health is essential, so it is important that you keep up with various routine exams with different health specialists throughout the year. By staying up to date with your checkups, you will not only know more about your overall health but you can also catch issues like disease during its earlier stages. Here at our optometry office in Chesterfield, Glaucoma Consultants of St. Louis, we can provide you with the regular eye exams that you need every year as well as with specialized care if required.
No matter what, everyone should have their eye health examined by a professional about once a year. Annual eye exams can help you learn more about your propensity for developing certain conditions, help you keep up with any vision or prescription changes, monitor allergies and other chronic issues, as well as catch any related eye health concerns as early on as possible. This can help significantly when it comes to diseases that cause vision damage or vision loss, including cataracts. Cataracts develop when the lens of the eye grows thicker over time. As this progresses, the lens is more and more difficult to see through, becoming less clear and growing to more closely resemble a frosted or clouded pane of glass. People with a family history of cataracts, a personal history of eye damage as well as people who have diabetes are all more likely to develop eye diseases like cataracts, and we here at Glaucoma Consultants of St. Louis can help. Here at our optometry office in Chesterfield, our resident eye experts Dr. Paul M. Tesser and Dr. Jeremy A. Beatty can provide you with the comprehensive eye care you need as well as with attentive cataract care if you develop this condition.
During the earlier stages of cataracts, Dr. Tesser or Dr. Beatty can monitor your development and provide stronger prescription lenses if needed, but as cataracts grow worse we can begin discussing options like surgery. If you have cataracts or are overdue for an eye exam, visit our optometry office in Chesterfield and get the care you need right here at Glaucoma Consultants
of St. Louis.
