Signs Of Sight Loss

Know The Signs of Sight Loss

You only get one set of eyes and preserving your vision as you age is imperative. One of the best preventative measures that you can take is to have routine comprehensive eye exams with our optometrists at Ideal Family Eye Care in Chicago, IL.

Understanding What Sight Loss Means

Often, the early signs of sight loss can indicate an undiagnosed eye condition, including macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, or glaucoma. These diseases can rob you of your eyesight and often have very subtle or no early warning signs. However, if you notice any of the following symptoms, it is imperative to immediately schedule an appointment with one of our eye doctors.

  • Chronic pain in one eye or both
  • Blurry or double vision
  • Flashes of light
  • The appearance of halos around lights
  • Increased light sensitivity

Some of these symptoms can be precursors for serious eye diseases, some of which can make you go blind if they are left untreated.

The Importance of Comprehensive Eye Exams

Early detection is the best course of action when it comes to diagnosing eye diseases. Unfortunately, it can be easy to forgo an appointment because you see clearly. Remember, 20/20 vision does not necessarily mean you have healthy eyes. Our optometrists have the knowledge and tools to thoroughly examine your eyes. If an issue is discovered, early intervention helps prevent further vision loss. Taking a proactive approach gives you peace of mind knowing you are taking care of your most important sense.

  • 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!
