Eye Health and Disease

Eye Health and Disease

Unlike the rest of our body, the eyes rarely hurt when something is wrong. Eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and conditions caused by diabetes and high blood pressure usually present with no visual symptoms in the early stages. However, over time they can cause permanent damage to our eyes. A comprehensive eye examination checks the internal and external health of your eyes and does a refractive visual analysis to see if a change to your prescription is necessary. For children, a regular eye exam can help determine if the eyes are developing properly. If there is a problem that goes untreated it can lead to learning disorders and vision loss.

At College Avenue Vision Clinic, we believe information leads to better health, better decision-making, and better prevention. Protect yourself and your family by making regular eye exams a part of your health care routine.

We regret to inform you that due to the current health crisis regarding COVID-19, the Vision Clinic will be closed. We will send out emails when we re-open. We have taken into consideration concerns from patients and staff, as well as recommendations by the CDC and American Optometric Association to make this decision. All patients with appointments during this time will receive a phone call regarding rescheduling. If you currently have an appointment it is canceled. When we reopen you will be called and rescheduled. Any patients with needs or concerns can call or email the clinic. We will continue to provide emergency eye care. We will continue to re-evaluate this ongoing pandemic and send updates when appropriate.
