Adult Eye Exams

If I’m seeing fine, why do I need an Eye Exam?

Glaucoma, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration are just a few of the common eye diseases which affect older patients.

Even if your vision is fine, annual eye health exams can detect eye and systemic diseases in the early stages when it is easier to prevent vision loss. Help maintain quality of life with good eye care.

People with diabetes, high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis and taking certain medications are especially at risk for eye diseases and vision loss.

Everyone wants to protect the eyesight and overall health for themselves and their loved ones – that is why annual eye exams are important. Regular eye care and exams can protect and prevent many eye diseases, if detected early. Today, a whole range of eye problems can be treated successfully without total vision loss.

Many vision problems can begin at an early age too, so it’s important for children to receive proper eye care from the time they are infants.

COVID-19 UPDATE
Our office takes the health and safety of our patients and team very seriously. After careful consideration, Tippett Eye Care has elected to reduce our services at both locations for the unforeseeable future.

Although our office will be closed, we will have a team on hand to answer questions, make appointments, take eyewear and contact lens orders, and schedule curbside pick-ups via phone. Please call our office to schedule a pick- up time so we may bring them out of the office for curbside pick-up. You may also elect to have materials directly shipped. We will return any messages left throughout the week within 24 hours. Messages left over the weekend will be returned on Monday.

Dr. Tippett will be available for eye emergencies such as sudden vision changes, injuries, red eyes, and other urgent issues. We will be using telemedicine and in-office treatment. Please call our office so we may address your concerns. Our office will make every effort to help you avoid the emergency room. Please note, no patients will be granted entry into the office without approval of an emergency appointment by Dr. Tippett or a team member.
