Protect Your Eyesight – Maintain Your Eye Health at Our West Des Moines Optometrist

Get an Eye Exam from an Eye Doctor

Our West Des Moines eye doctor must evaluate your vision to clarify potential risks to your eyes. You want to get an exam on a regular basis to ensure that you understand the risks and take precautions against the problems that may develop. Early detection is a key part of treating an eye condition.

Obtain Proper Treatment for Eye Conditions

Proper treatment for eye conditions varies for each individual. You want to follow through with glaucoma treatment, cataract surgery or other recommendations when an eye doctor in West Des Moines discovers a potential problem. In our clinic, we recommend treatments based on your eyes and the severity of a condition.

Keep Your Body Healthy

A healthy body reduces the number of risks to your vision. Get a regular medical exam to check for high blood pressure, diabetes or other medical health concerns that may impact your eyes. You also want to exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet to keep your body in the optimal health.

Focus on foods that reduce the risk of eye conditions, such as omega-3 rich foods like fish or antioxidant-rich foods like berries. Exercising also reduces the risk of certain eye conditions, so you want to go for regular walks or spend time on your physical body when you notice concerns related to your eyes.

  • "Had an exam yesterday, everyone was very nice. I also had my rowdy 3-year old and they were so patient as he was very curious to what was going on, they had crayons and paper for him. Dr. Katie was who I saw and she explained everything so well I had no problem understanding what she was telling me. I was impressed with how quickly I was able to see her since this was my first visit and check in went quickly. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone looking for a comfortable atmosphere."
