Regular doctors' appointments are an essential part of maintaining overall heath, and properly caring for your eyes is an important part of establishing this healthy habit. Diseases and conditions of the eye often result in no symptoms, making them harder to identify and treat without regular check-ups. Like any health condition, early detection and treatment of eye and vision disorders are crucial to the long-term outcome of each patient.
Some diseases affect the eyes of children more often than others. Common pediatric eye conditions include:
Regular visits with Dr. Masihdas can protect your family's health and development by monitoring for a range of eye conditions. If your child has already been diagnosed with an eye disease or vision problem, we can form on individualized treatment plan to preserve and restore their ocular health.
Healthy eyes are integral to your child's productivity and well-being. If you are concerned about your child's eye health or need to schedule a regular check-up, please contact our office to schedule a pediatric eye exam.
Monthly Health Tip
Diabetic eye disease is the leading cause of blindness among adults. For that reason, we recommend that anyone with or at risk for diabetes have a comprehensive, dilated eye examination at least once a year. Early detection and treatment are the key to maintain healthy vision.
