Eye Exams for Early Detection

Your eyes are the window to your soul. They also give your ophthalmologist a window to your health. Preventative care begins with a comprehensive eye exam. At the office of Sina J Sabet MD PC in Alexandria, we care for every member of your family. We provide routine eye care as well as acute care. We will help you have the best vision possible. Effectively identifying and treating any eye condition starts with a thorough eye exam performed by an eye doctor.

Conditions That Benefit from Early Detection

Early detection of serious medical and vision conditions is always the best option. Not only does it allow for early treatment, but it also results in less loss of time from work and lower overall medical costs. Eye exams can also detect issues with high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.

Diabetes and Your Eyes

Diabetes is a serious medical condition that can go undetected. A comprehensive eye exam can reveal if you have diabetes. Diabetes can also make it more likely you will get glaucoma or cataracts may form earlier. Diabetic retinopathy is a serious condition that benefits from early detection and treatment.


Glaucoma is caused by excessive pressure in your eyes and can result in serious damage and even blindness. Open-angle glaucoma often has no symptoms so without proper preventive care, it can go undiagnosed.


Cataracts are clouds that form on the lens of the eye. It is thought of as a condition of aging but not all people who get cataracts are old. Cataracts can form in the eyes of children and teens.
