Seeing well does not mean your eyes are healthy. A comprehensive eye exam is vital for early detection of diseases.
During your comprehensive eye exam, we assess not only your vision, but prescribe glasses and contacts lenses if necessary. Your exam also includes testing for common eye diseases, evaluating how your eyes work together and checking overall health.
A dilation is an important part of the comprehensive exam because it allows the optometrist to get better views of the inside of the eye and assess overall health. A dilated eye exam can help detect serious eye diseases like cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, amblyopia, and macular degeneration early, which can prevent permanent vision loss.
Even if you don’t have vision problems, you still need an eye exam every year.
Adults with diabetes, high blood pressure, and other disorders may need more frequent examinations, as many diseases can impact vision and eye health.
For adults over 40, having an eye exam every year is important to check for common age-related eye problems like presbyopia, cataracts, and macular degeneration.
And for those over 60, an annual exam is crucial, as the risk of eye disease increases with age.
Our exam begins with discussing your health history and vision needs. This includes discussions about dry eye disease, digital eye strain, headaches and vision changes.
Then we test your vision and find the best options to help you see better. We test your eyes for overall health and disease using the latest technology.
