Look Beyond the Keyhole: The Eyes Have It at All Eyes of St. Joseph

Next time you pay a visit to your eye doctor and they whip out one of those goofy looking, coiled up, sunshade wrap around sunglass-style devices, stop and think before you groan. That very clear indicator that you're getting a dilated eye exam should actually make your heart sing, not your shoulders droop. In fact, you might want to consider asking for a dilated eye exam.

At All Eyes in the Southtown neighborhood of St. Joseph, Dr. Clayton Cashen and Dr. Carrie Campbell always perform dilated eye exams. They understand very well that to maintain good health you have to be ever vigilant. The reasoning behind their decision to perform dilated eye exams is, (pun fully intended!) rather eye-opening.

You see, looking at an un-dilated eye is like looking at the eye through a keyhole in your door. You can see it, but when you dilate the eye, it's like opening the door wide -- you can see everything that was behind the door, not just that small space available through the keyhole.

Doctors Cashen & Campbell can find things that might never have been discovered before because no clues or symptoms were present. At All Eyes, when you get an eye exam you get a virtual education on the health of your eyes and often times the rest of your body...discovering potential signs of things like high blood pressure, diabetes, and other critical issues that could be affecting your health well beyond your eyes.

That's why they strongly suggest that if your eyes are bothering you, you should get to the team at All Eyes right away. Don't wait until you have to be taken to the Emergency Room! The care is far more specific and focused and it's considerably cheaper than a trip to the E.R., as well.

Keep in mind that while some places will tell you that they can "squeeze you in" some time three or four months from now, the team at All Eyes works with Doctors Cashen and Campbell to do everything possible to accommodate you in relatively short order. So, if your glasses break, or you need contacts, or forgot that your upcoming vacation could really use a new pair of sunglasses and you can't wait...All Eyes can speed your visit like never before.

All Eyes stands ready to open the door to your health through your eyes whether you need a diabetic eye exam, glaucoma management, or even for hard-to-fit contacts.
