Comprehensive Eye exams are a pivotal part of keeping your eyes healthy. Some of the procedures we conduct during the eye exams are eye dilations, eye alignment checks, and manual refractions.

After conducting thorough eye examinations to determine a patient’s vision status, Dr. Caroline Tran is able to provide the best eye care options for the patient. At Heights Eye Care, we make certain that every part of the fitting is conducted in a timely manner so that the patient can have their contact lenses or their glasses and move on with the rest of their life. We make the entire fitting experience quick, painless, and accurate.
Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the US, but with proper care, it can be treated. Heights Eye Care takes this disease very seriously and encourages everyone in The Heights to make certain to undergo an eye examination. Glaucoma is one of the eye diseases our vision staff checks for during exams. This disease is caused by pressure to the optic nerve caused by fluid. The most common type of glaucoma is open-angle glaucoma. The only symptom of open-angle glaucoma is slow vision loss. The most rare, yet most serious form of glaucoma is angle-closure glaucoma, which has the following symptoms:
- Sudden blurry vision
- Severe eye pain
- Seeing rainbow-colored or halos around lights
If you suffer from these symptoms, schedule your glaucoma screening appointment at Heights Eye Care immediately.
Macular Degeneration Screening
Macular degeneration is commonly called age-related macular degeneration (AMD) because it is one of the leading causes of blindness in people over the age of 50. Macular degeneration is caused by damage to the retina. There are two types of AMD: dry and wet. Wet is the more serious of the two. Scheduling regular eye exams can catch early signs of AMD in order to help treat it. People are at a higher risk of developing AMD due to the following:
- Are overweight
- Are over 50 years old
- Are Caucasian
- Diet consists of high saturated fats
- Have a family history of AMD
- Smoke cigarettes
Diabetic Retinopathy Screening
Diabetes is a very common cause of blindness and other vision issues, like blurriness, floaters, and difficulty perceiving colors. The eye disease caused by diabetes is called diabetic retinopathy. This happens when high blood sugar levels damage the blood vessels in the retina. If you suffer from diabetes, then you should schedule an appointment at Heights Eye Care to undergo a diabetic retinopathy screening. Catching these issues early could save your vision.
