Comprehensive Eye Exams Safeguard Your Sight
Regular eye exams are an essential tool for protecting your eye health and vision. To help ensure your eyes stay healthy all of our eye exams include tests for glaucoma and other sight-threatening conditions.
Comprehensive eye exams can also help us screen for other serious systemic conditions, such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
Are You Due For an Eye Exam?
The American Optometric Association recommends that adults between the ages of 18 and 64 visit their optometrist at least every two years. However, patients with a family history of ocular disease, or who have high refractive errors, should undergo a comprehensive eye exam annually.
If you are unsure how often you should have your eyes examined, you can ask your optometrist during your next appointment.
Why You Need Regular Eye Exams
Periodic eye exams allow your optometrist to detect and track small changes or deteriorations in your ocular health, make sure your eyes are working as a cohesive unit, and ensure your prescription is up to date.
Sudden changes in your vision may indicate that you are developing a serious eye disease or other ocular condition. If untreated, eye diseases can lead to permanent vision loss and even blindness. Our highly trained team has the skills, technology, and experience to detect eye disease in its early stages, and provide management and treatment options to slow, or even prevent, disease-related vision loss.
During Your Exam
Once we have ensured that your medical history is up to date and addressed any questions or concerns you may have, we will begin to check your eyes.
During your comprehensive eye exam, we will evaluate your eye health and assess your vision. We do this using a series of tests, which allow us to look for abnormalities and potential problems. If we detect anything of concern, we will work with you to create a tailored management plan to safeguard your eye health and vision.
