Patient having eyes examined

August is National Eye Exam Month, making it an excellent opportunity to schedule a consultation with board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Fred Mattioli. Getting regular eye exams is one of the most important and easiest things you can do for your (and your family’s) eye health.

Proper sight and eye health can positively impact every aspect of one’s daily living and significantly increase life satisfaction. Without the advantage of ocular wellness, things become harder: school, work, sports, and even leisure time is difficult to enjoy if one is struggling with their eye health.

Among the best ways to avoid these problems is to schedule regular exams. And we invite residents of Woodlands, Sugar Land, River Oaks, and West University to do so by contacting us at Mattioli Vision Professionals in Houston, TX.

Take advantage of National Eye Exam Month to protect your family’s ocular health

Eye exams evaluate the breadth of your visual capacities and check for potential complications, including those many did not even know they had. These include refractive errors, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia (age-related vision loss).

Refractive disorders afflict over 150 million Americans, and knowing is half the battle. So, we’re excited to offer a variety of effective options to help give you clear vision, including the prescription of glasses or contact lenses. Additionally, time-tested procedures like LASIK or PRK can fix the root of the problem, a misshapen cornea, to correct refractive errors at the source and provide the crisp sight you deserve.

Another common disease is glaucoma, whose prevalence increases with age and other factors, including some chronic conditions. This “silent thief of sight” progresses without signs, slowly stealing one’s vision. By the time its progression is apparent, irreparable ocular damage may have occurred. But detecting this disease through an eye exam allows us to formulate the most effective treatment strategies possible for your specific needs.

National Eye Exam Month is a fantastic opportunity to improve your family’s ocular health

Additionally, with the back-to-school season on the horizon, eye exams are a wonderful gift to give your younger loved ones. Helping your child attain spectacular sight can improve their lives in many ways.

Especially academically, as children who struggle to see are likelier to face academic challenges, including difficulty concentrating, eye strain, headaches, and fatigue. But by monitoring your child’s progress, we can help them enjoy an optimal outcome.

And, utilizing an assortment of other optical evaluations, we can assess every other part of one’s vision. Including the scope of one’s color vision, the ability to focus on specific objects (essential for those with active or sporting lifestyles), the presence of blindspots, overall visual acuity, and other capacities.
