When to See an Optometrist
If you live in the New Smyrna Beach, Ponce Inlet, and Edgewater areas of Volusia County, then quality optometry is right around the corner from you. Our team of optometrists, doctors, and eye care specialists can help care for your eyes as you go through your life and your changing optometric needs.
Regular Checkups for Proper Eye Care
Monitoring the health and prescription of the eyes is an excellent habit to get into. A yearly visit to the optometrist is not out of order. Whether you are far-sighted, near-sighted, or something else, your eyes are precision instruments and they deserve exactly the right prescription. Life is just better when it is less blurry. As we age our bodies can change, and small differences in exercise, diet, and routine might make for a change in the prescription. Sometimes the change can even be for the better, as a year of regular eye exercise and outdoor activity can lead to diopters worth of difference. The process is quick and painless. Take a short trip through our optometric evaluation service and we can give you a new prescription and get you back out on the beach in no time.
Eye Crises, Eye Diseases, and Acute Care for Eye Health
A doctor of optometry from Beach Vision will often be able to detect the oncoming symptoms of more serious diseases and conditions while examining the eye. There are a number of small tests that they will do during the ordinary checkup, such as the air pressure test for glaucoma or the visual examination of the retina to detect signs of scarring, burst blood vessels, retinal detachment, and other developing problems. Many such problems can be addressed with medication, prescription eyewear, and minor changes to lifestyle or diet. Larger problems can naturally be referred to any of the many specialists with which our agency maintains relationships. Beach Vision will work with you through the entire evaluation process, providing a friendly point of contact.
