May is Healthy Vision Month


How Healthy Are Your Eyes?

Did you know that more than 23 million American adults have never had an eye exam? WOW, that’s a lot of people! If you are part of that 23 million, it’s okay! It’s never too late to schedule a comprehensive eye exam and here at Carter Eye Center, we are passionate about your vision.

Taking care of your vision should be a priority, just like taking care of your body physically. For more than 30 years, Dr. Harvey Carter has offered the highest quality medical and surgical eye care to people in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

The Importance of a Comprehensive Eye Exam

You may feel that your vision is “normal” and healthy, but Carter Eye Center has the latest technology that can detect several eye diseases before symptoms arise. Early detection is crucial for diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration, but a thorough eye exam is also able to assist in the early detection of conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure. Here’s the part you really need to know: The earlier these diseases are detected, the earlier treatment can be started.

According to VSP Vision Care, only 1 percent of people know that signs of serious diseases and conditions like high blood pressure, autoimmune disorders, thyroid diseases and certain types of cancers can be detected through an eye exam. 

Say Goodbye to the Hassles of Glasses and Contacts

If you are struggling with blurry vision, All-Laser LASIK might be right for you. Dr. Carter was instrumental in introducing LASIK to Texas back when it first received FDA approval in 1999. And today he is still one of Dallas’ most trusted LASIK surgeons. Imagine what you could do with the visual freedom LASIK offers!

If you’re on the fence about this procedure, we encourage you to take our self-test to find out if you’re a good candidate.

Over Two Million Cataract Surgeries Are Performed Each Year

As you age, so do your eyes. Cataracts will eventually form, causing cloudy, blurry, and dull vision. The good news is you don’t have to live with it! Carter Eye Center offers laser-assisted cataract surgery and premium lens implants or Lifestyle Lenses, which are customizable to your lifestyle and can reduce your dependency on reading glasses.
