Comprehensive Eye Exams Can Help Preserve Your Vision

Getting regular eye exams is the most important thing that you can do to maintain the health of your eyes. Routine exams by optometrist Dr. Maxwell and her experienced staff can uncover health issues that may result in the loss or detriment of your vision. The staff at Maxwell EyeCare Center employ a wide variety of techniques to fully examine your eyes, ranging from simple eye charts and light sensitivity tests, to more complex programs such as puff tests and colorblindness screenings, which can diagnose common eye conditions, such as astigmatism, glaucoma, and cataracts. Annual eye exams are essential for the continued care of your vision. An annual comprehensive eye exam can help point out eye diseases early, so that proper treatments can be implemented by our eye care professionals at Maxwell EyeCare Center.

Remember: Every adult should have an eye exam at least once a year.

Offering Eye Exams to Monitor Eye Disease

Many factors can cause damage to your eyes, including age, diabetes, and other health-related conditions. If you have a long-term disease or chronic condition, it is more important than ever to schedule a full eye exam with Dr. Maxwell and her team. Early detection of many eye diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy, opens up the chance for multiple treatment options, and may help to preserve your vision.

Contact Lens Care Tips from Maxwell EyeCare Center in Winfield, WV

Contact lenses can bring great convenience to your life and improve your vision immensely. You can extend the life of your contact lenses with some easy care tips. First, never sleep in your contact lenses. This increases your chance of developing an ulcer or infection in your eyes. Second, keep water out of your eyes when wearing contact lenses. Water contains microbes, which can get trapped between the contact lens and your eye, resulting in infection. Finally, take care of your contact lens case. Wash it out and dry it regularly.

Treating Eye Diseases Before They Become Chronic Conditions


Glaucoma is the clinical name for the deterioration of the optic nerve over time. This can lead to vision loss, and in some cases, blindness. Regular eye exams from an optometrist at Maxwell EyeCare Center can effectively diagnose glaucoma. With early detection, treatment is entirely possible. Only a trained eye doctor can definitively diagnose glaucoma. Early detection is very important when it comes to this vision issue. Call our eye doctor, Dr. Maxwell, at (304) 562-3200 if you think you may be at risk.


Cataracts are a common eye care issue, especially among older people. Cataracts form when the protein that makes up the lens of the eye clumps together. These clumps can cloud the lens and impair your vision. Practicing since 1991, optometrist Dr. Maxwell and her staff have experience diagnosing cataracts and can prescribe treatment of this progressive disease.

Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration is a common vision issue in which your field of vision becomes distorted or darker. If this condition is left untreated, you may lose your central vision entirely. This condition is caused by issues with the blood vessels that are connected to the retina of the eye. Age and heredity both increase the chance of developing macular degeneration, so there is not much that you can do to counteract this disease. However, an unhealthy diet and smoking may contribute to its symptoms. Although there is currently no cure for macular degeneration, there are treatments from Maxwell EyeCare Center, which can control it.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is an eye disease that affects people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Over time, increased sugar levels in your blood can lead to blockage of the tiny blood vessels that nourish the retina, cutting off its blood supply. As a result, the eye will attempt to grow new blood vessels. These may not develop properly, and can sometimes leak, leading to the following symptoms:

Spots or dark strings floating in your vision (floaters)

Blurred vision

Fluctuating vision

Impaired color vision

Dark or empty areas in your vision

Vision loss

If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes and experience any of these symptoms, call Maxwell EyeCare Center today at (304) 562-3200.
