Caring for the Health of Your Eyes
A comprehensive eye exam is an important part of preventative healthcare. While an eye exam can test your visual acuity and determine your prescription, it does something else too—it helps your optometrist detect and diagnose any signs of eye disease.
Many eye diseases develop with little to no symptoms, so it’s important to catch them in their infancy, before irreversible vision loss. Regular eye exams allow your optometrist to establish a baseline of your eye health.

Diabetes occurs when your body cannot produce or use insulin, the hormone needed to control blood glucose levels.
For people with diabetes, we recommend regular eye exams as the disease can be detrimental to your ocular health. The tiny blood vessels in your eyes are sensitive and when blood sugar levels are elevated, they can become damaged, leading to diabetic retinopathy or macular edema.
One of the most important parts of your eye exam is the opportunity for us to detect eye diseases at their earliest stages before symptoms arise. Early detection means we can start treatment right away, which gives us a better chance of preserving your vision.
In your eye exam, we’ll evaluate the health of the inner structures of your eyes with noninvasive imaging such as optical coherence tomography, which gives us a cross-section picture of your retina, and a wide-angle Optomap image that includes a look at the blood vessels in your retina.
Our testing can reveal eye diseases and conditions, including glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, and age-related macular degeneration. It can also detect systemic health issues like diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and stroke.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) causes damage to the macula, the part of your eye responsible for your sharp central vision. While this disease does not cause complete blindness, it can affect your ability to recognize faces and do close-up tasks like reading and writing.
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases characterized by damage to the optic nerve. Often, glaucoma has very few symptoms until its advanced stages, when vision loss occurs. High intraocular pressure (IOP) is a warning sign that you may be developing glaucoma. At Stanford Ranch Optometry, we have invested in the technology necessary to test your IOP and detect signs of glaucoma.
Emergency Eye Care
Your vision is vital and any threats to your sight should be taken very seriously. We provide emergency eye care for accidents, infections, eye trauma, and more. Foreign bodies, severe redness, pink eye, infection due to contact lenses, or an allergic reaction should all be treated as an eye care emergency. Contact us right away if you think you have an emergency on your hands.
