Taking care of your eyes should be one of your top health priorities. Just as you should stay on top of annual physicals and regular dental cleanings, you should make sure that you also stay ahead of the curve when it comes to your eye health. By seeing an eye doctor regularly, you stand a better chance of catching eye conditions and other concerns early on, when treatment is most effective. It can also help to teach you more about what you may be at risk for developing as well. Here at Retina Consultants of Long Island, we can help with issues specifically concerning the retina. With routine testing, care, and even Oceanside laser eye therapy, we can ensure that your eye health is in good hands.
It really helps to know what your medical history is as well as whether any other medical conditions you might have will affect your health in other areas. For instance, people with diabetes are at a greater risk of developing eye problems than others, so more frequent screenings and checkups are recommended if not required by certain doctors depending on the severity of your diabetes symptoms. Here at Retina Consultants of Long Island we can provide expert care when it comes to the treatment of retinal issues and other concerns. The retina is an area of the eye where light sensitive tissue is concentrated. It is because of your retina that light traveling through your pupils can be translated into understandable images by the brain, so you can see why retinal conditions need the best possible care. Many retinal conditions can be treated with the help of Oceanside laser eye therapy such as diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration and ocular histoplasmosis.
If you are at risk for eye disease, are overdue for an exam, or have developed troubling symptoms, then please visit us here at Retina Consultants of Long Island as soon as you can.
