If you have not had an eye exam over the past year, you will want to make an appointment to come in and see our eye doctor at Sanaga Optical. Patients can see our expert optometrist, Dr. Michael Leno, for a Baltimore eye exam and complete eye testing.
There are many eye diseases and disorders which show no symptoms in the early stages. However, it is precisely during these early stages that it is important that eye diseases are diagnosed and treated. This will help the patient to protect his or her precious vision. Additionally, treatment is usually most successful for vision problems when they are treated in the early stages. For example, glaucoma presents no obvious symptoms in the early stages. However, glaucoma needs to be treated during this time in order to prevent permanent damage to the optic nerve. This can usually be accomplished by our eye doctor providing patients with a prescription for eye drops which will keep the intraocular pressure at a safe level. During our eye exams, your eyes will be screened for many diseases including: glaucoma; cataracts; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; retinal tears; dry eyes; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. During our Baltimore eye exam, your eyes will also be screened for any refractive disorders. If it is found that you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, our eye doctor can write an eyeglass lens or contact lens prescription for you which should have you seeing clearly. Today, many of our patients are excited to learn that even if they have astigmatism they can now have their vision corrected by wearing contact lenses. It is also now safe for patients with dry eyes to wear specialize contact lenses which will not cause them any type of discomfort or dry eye problems.
