Palm Desert CA Eye Exams Coachella Valley | Desert Eye & Laser

Not only is your vision important, but so is your children’s vision. The earlier you start them on the path of good health, the easier it will be to continue it as they get older. Kids may not be able to tell you whether or not they can see the board at school, but an eye exam will. Taking care of vision impairment can mean better performance in school. It’s not always easy to find an eye doctor in Palm Springs, but it’s important to find the right one for both you and your family.

Eye exams help eye doctors determine whether or not you have good eye health. Many eye diseases are impossible to diagnose without an eye exam, because there are no obvious symptoms. Because eye doctors use specialty instruments like refractors, they are able to see what’s beyond the surface. If you’re in the Palm Desert area and looking for an eye doctor, an eye exam here at Desert Eye and Laser is the first step towards healthy eyes.

Eye exams aren’t just for checking your vision, or keeping your prescription up to date. They are also an important way for eye doctors to check on eye pressure, which if increased and left untreated, could lead to Glaucoma. Eye doctors will typically dilate your eye to get a better look at what is going on in your eyes. A dilated eye exam could be helpful in leading to a diagnosis of glaucoma, diabetes or even macular degeneration. When caught early, they can prevent severe vision loss that would have occurred if left untreated.
