General Eye Care
Eye care is extremely important to everyone and not just people in need of treating keratoconus. It is recommended that each person (regardless of whether they wear glasses or not) visit an eye doctor at least once every 2 years and more often in many cases.
People with diabetes or other systemic diseases must see their eye doctor even more frequently to ensure adequate eye care. People with keratoconus must also see their eye doctor on a more frequent basis. Talk to your eye care professional to find out how often you should be examined to be certain of the best possible eye care possible.
The quality of your care also depends on the skills of your surgeon: Dr. Turner is specially trained in treating eye diseases and performing surgery on the eye.
