When to See an Optometrist

Your eyes are your window to the world and making sure they are healthy is something that can't be overemphasized. At Eye Site, we have years of experience providing residents of Katy & Houston with reliable optometry services. There are a variety of reasons patients come into our office every day. Following are some of the most important reasons to see an optometrist.

Routine Care

Routine eye exams are a good habit to get into. Routine eye exams are recommended for infants and children. You should get your infant an eye exam before they are a year old. If no eye issues are apparent, a visit before starting school is recommended. A lifetime of yearly eye exams will help to diagnose and address any changes in vision. As you age, if you have any serious underlying health conditions, it may be suggested that you visit more frequently than once a year.

Dry Eyes

Many things can cause dry eyes. Aging is the most common cause of dry eye. Excessive screen time can also cause dry eyes. Our optometrist has several methods of dry eye treatment, and will recommend the one that will be most effective for you.

Vision Issues

When you notice a change in your vision, it is time to visit an optometrist. If you have double vision, blurred vision, floaters, diminished peripheral vision, or tunnel vision, schedule an appointment with our eye doctor as soon as possible. If your glasses or contacts seem to lose effectiveness, schedule an eye exam.

Eye Pain

Pain is never a good thing, especially in your eyes. Don't hesitate to call your local optometry office if you are experiencing eye pain.
