Family Eye Care from our Omaha Optometrists
Proper eye care is something that is important at every stage of life, from young infants through the golden years. Fortunately, at Omaha Primary Eye Care is here to provide your entire family with your optometric needs, no matter where you land on the visual and eye health spectrum.
The Comprehensive Eye Exam
Getting a regular eye exam is a cornerstone for helping to make the most out of your eye health and help you see your best each day. Some only go in for an exam on a regular basis if they wear prescription glasses, however, regardless of a person's vision, there are many reasons to see an optometrist for an exam. Not only are vision changes detected in an exam, but a qualified Doctor of Optometry can also notice various other eye health and other types of potential eye issues through an eye exam. Some of these include
- Refractive errors
- Macular Degeneration
Eye exams can even catch early symptoms of other health conditions like diabetes, heart problems, neurological trouble, and autoimmune issues.
An Early Start From Your Family Eye Care Professional
At Omaha Primary Eye Care, we believe that proper eye care starts in infancy, and continues throughout life. This is one of the reasons we are proud to participate in Infant See, which is dedicated to eye and vision health during a child's first year and is managed by the American Optometric Association Foundation. This program helps to verify that babies' eyes are off to a good developmental start and treats potential problems regardless of the family's financial status or insurance availability.
See to Learn
See to Learn is a program geared toward preschoolers aimed to catch possible vision issues before kindergarten. Many childhood vision issues, such as crossed eyes, and lazy eye can bring on learning disabilities or symptoms of learning disabilities, such as dyslexia, and slow academic progress. By identifying issues before school starts, we help children do their best in school and in life.
Care for Aging Eyes
While many people's vision will stabilize in late childhood or early adulthood, that doesn't mean they will be able to keep the same glasses forever. As eyes age, seeing an optometrist regularly becomes even more important. Whether it is treating a patient over forty struggling with presbyopia (a condition with symptoms of nearsightedness and farsightedness simultaneously), or treating an older person who may have developed cataracts or age related macular degeneration, our team of eye care professionals is here to provide the treatment you need to keep on seeing your best as long as possible.
