May: Healthy Vision Month

Did you know? Most Americans would rather lose a limb, their memory, or their hearing rather than their vision.

When it comes to your overall health, hopefully you regularly see your PCP to make sure your body is healthy.  But what about your eyes?    

It's important to have regular dilated eye examinations to make sure your eyes and body are healthy.

Did you know that during an eye examination we can find signs of being a diabetic or even signs of a brain tumor?  Other systemic conditions that we can see signs of in the eyes are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, graves disease, herpes simplex/herpes zoster, and carotid stenosis.

You may think that your vision is in good shape and that your eyes are healthy, but a dilated eye exam is the only way to be certain.  Common eye diseases are often symptomless at first but early detection can help stop or prevent further damage.

Celebrate Healthy Vision Month by seeing us for your dilated eye exam!

Dr. Sarah S. Lunsford, O.D.

Getting a dilated eye exam is the only way to catch eye diseases early, because with many, there are no warning signs.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "We use Anderson Optometry for all of our family’s vision needs. Recently, we had to have our youngest fitted for new glasses and he made the experience fun for her and informative for us. We know Dr. Anderson will always take good care of our family’s eye care and that’s why we wouldn’t go to anywhere else."

  • "Dr. Anderson and his staff are so patient and friendly. Dr. Anderson prescribed me glasses and I had the toughest time picking out frames. They didn’t rush, but instead made helpful suggestions and now I have an awesome pair of frames, not to mention the fact that I can see ten times better than before. You guys are the best!"
