These factors affect our visual performance and comfort throughout our daily tasks and activities. The majority of eye diseases are painless and can go undetected for years, leading to possible irreparable damage. Also, certain eye conditions can be manifestations of underlying systemic diseases. All these aspects of vision and health are part of our comprehensive eye examinations.
