Detroit area eye doctor offers patients thorough visual and eye health exams


Ferndale, MI -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/01/2016 --Dr. Howard E. Crane assesses seven areas of eye health to give patients the most comprehensive eye exams in Ferndale, MI. Dr. Crane screens for retinal or corneal disorders and will perform vision tests. After analyzing each of those, he takes the time to explain each patient's results to help them each gain the best understanding of their own eye health that he can give. By taking into consideration a person's entire eye exam, Dr. Crane is able to make it possible for his patients to achieve better eye health.

At Crane Optical, Dr. Crane can prescribe medicine, provide low vision rehabilitation and therapy, as well as minor necessary medical treatments, depending on the exam findings. An internal and external exam of each eye will allow Dr. Crane to check for signs of cataracts or retinal problems, some of which he is able to provide complete rehabilitation for. With nearly 45 years of experience, Dr. Crane has extensive knowledge in optometry and will assist in helping patients get the best care possible.

Dr. Crane has helped many patients over the years with all types of retinal conditions and cataracts. A cataract is the clouding of the lens in one's eye and is most often caused by aging. More than 50 percent of Americans have cataracts or have had cataract surgery by the time they are 80 years old. Retinal problems include macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, retinal detachment, retinoblastoma (cancer), macular pucker (scarring), macular hole, and floaters (spots). After he has determined the patient's exam information, he will then make a necessary treatment plan to help the patient achieve better vision and eye health. He can also perform co-management of cataract surgery.
