If you are looking for an expert vision practice where you will be able to get a top-notch medical eye exam, you will want to visit our eye doctor at Vision World Bayshore. At our vision practice, patients are able to get comprehensive eye exams, or contact lens exams and fittings, both of which will let you know if your eyes have any type of medical problem. Our optometrist in Bay Shore is able to provide you with a comprehensive eye exam which will screen you for a wide variety of eye diseases and disorders.
During a comprehensive eye exam, our optometrist in Bay Shore will review your eyes to make sure they do not have any eye diseases or disorders which can affect your vision. Our eye doctors are Dr. Michelle Zalaznick and Dr. Myron Berlatt. Among the many vision problems which are checked for during a comprehensive eye exam are: cataracts; macular degeneration; glaucoma; diabetic retinopathy; dry eyes; retinal tears; and problems of the retina, macula, and cornea. Our eye doctor will also check your eyes to see if you have any refractive vision problems. If it is determined that you have astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness, our optometrist will be able to write a lens prescription for you which will have you seeing clearly again.
When you come to our office for a medical eye exam, you will receive much more than a simple vision screening. A vision screening may be able to tell you if you are having trouble reading up close or seeing at a distance. However, a medical eye exam will actually let you know if your eyes have any diseases which need to be medically treated. There are many eye diseases which do not show any symptoms in the early stages, but if left to go undiagnosed and untreated they can cause serious and permanent vision problems. One such eye disease is glaucoma. Glaucoma can be easily treated when found in the early stages. However, if left undiagnosed, it will go on to cause permanent damage to the optic nerve. Our optometrist in Bay Shore will be able to let you know precisely how often you should have a comprehensive eye exam based on your age, eye health, and medical health history.
