Vision Is More Than Just Your Sight
Sight makes a huge difference in our day-to-day life, and there are numerous ways we can correct our visual errors with the help of glasses, contacts, or even corrective surgery. However, how well you see depends on more than your visual acuity; it also depends on your eye health.
Many people can have a higher risk of developing an eye disease or condition, making eye exams an essential part of your health care routine.

Why Your Eye Health Is Important
Your eyes are a complex network of systems working together to bring you your sight. However, there are several different problems your eyes could develop throughout your life, some of which may lead to permanent vision loss.
The risk of developing these problems can depend on numerous factors, including your age, family health history, overall health, and even the severity of certain refractive errors like nearsightedness.
Our comprehensive eye exam process examines your eyes to determine the health of each of these systems, including your retina, macula, crystalline lens, and optic nerve.
What Are the Most Common Eye Diseases & Conditions?
We ensure that our eye exam process is as comprehensive and comfortable as possible.
During your eye exam, we can take a deep look into your eye health with the help of several different technologies and techniques, including:
If we discover a potential issue developing, our team will get to work on developing a management strategy that’s right for you and your needs.
Cataracts occur in your crystalline lens, a part of your eye that changes shape to help you focus at different distances. Over time, the lens can develop a hazy, milky color that could obstruct your vision.
Learn more about cataract surgery by visiting our LASIK & Cataract Surgery Co-Management page.
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that can affect your optic nerve. Certain types of glaucoma can develop slowly, and you may not experience symptoms until you’ve already developed permanent vision loss. Other versions of the disease can develop quickly, leading to emergency symptoms.
Sphinx Eye Care can detect and manage glaucoma, so please visit our Glaucoma Testing & Management page to learn more about our strategies.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration, also known as AMD, is a common eye disease that typically affects adults over 40. In fact, AMD is considered the leading cause of vision loss in adults over 50.
AMD affects your macula, the central part of your retina that helps you see fine details and read.
ZEISS OCT Technology
ZEISS OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) technology is a noninvasive imaging system that allows us to capture highly detailed images of the retina, including your optic nerve. OCT works through light waves that take cross-sectional pictures of the retina.
These images help our team detect and monitor various eye conditions, such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy.
Eye Health Management Is Different for Everyone
Everybody’s eye health is different, which means we have to approach every eye disease in a different way.
No matter the issue you may be experiencing, the first step toward preserving your vision against eye diseases and conditions is to have regular eye exams. From the information we gather from your exam, we can develop a management plan right for you and your needs.
