I am Rick Ferrante from Home Care Services and we are joined today by Doctor Daniel Sjolund of Sunshine Optometry. Now we see optometrists all the time.
They are on many street corners right here in our valley and we typically associate them with a eyeglasses and prescriptions. They often have displays with glasses in frames, and bright cherry offices that people of all ages will go into to pick up those prescriptions. But what some might not know are some of the other things that optometry professionals do with certain medical conditions and treatments.
Home Care services and their staff recognize that healthy eyes and good eyesight are a quality of life condition as well as a potential safety issue. The health and well being of seniors in our community depend on their overall health, and eyesight is no exception. So what is it that optometrists do besides filling prescriptions?
We asked that question of Dr. Daniel of sunshine optometry and here is woody said. We treat all kinds of conditions such as dryness, redness, allergies and infections. Injuries as well.

We are able to diagnose and treat many of the conditions that people often go to urgent care for when instead we can diagnose and treat them right here. We can take care of the issues with eyesight often much more quickly and efficiently then someone at an urgent care office might treat it.
You certainly do not have to wait nearly as long and we accept insurances as with any other medical facility. So if you have a senior or other loved one that you are caring for or you have a family member that is having issues with eyesight you can bring them here into Sunshine Optometry rather than urgent care.
An optometrist is much more familiar with treating these conditions, whereas a primary care doctor may only see these things only occasionally and may not pick up on some of the subtle signs that go along with different diseases that we as optometrists see nearly every day.
Sunshine Optometry is located in Granery Square at 25862 McBean Parkway in Valencia.
