If it's been more than a year since your last exam, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with us at your earliest convenience!
The Importance of Regular Eye Exams
Many people don't realize that annual eye exams are vital, even if you haven't noticed any obvious changes in your eye or vision health. Specifically, regular eye exams allow us to establish a solid baseline for your overall ocular health while being on the lookout for any potential signs of underlying issues. These are signs that you may not notice for yourself for many months or even years. In this sense, regular eye exams can help us diagnose, treat, and manage eye problems as early as possible, increasing the chances for success.
In addition to helping us diagnose eye problems, your annual eye exams also allows us to stay up-to-date on your corrective vision prescription. And since we also offer a large selection of frames and lenses at both locations, we're your one-stop shop for all your corrective vision needs!
What to Expect From an Eye Exam
If it's been awhile since your last eye exam, you may be wondering what to expect when you come into our office for a comprehensive eye and vision exam. We'll begin by getting to know you, where you'll have an opportunity to sit down with our optometry team and ask any questions or bring up any concerns you may currently have about your eye health. From there, we'll take some time to review your medical history and family history before moving onto your actual exam. This will involve a physical assessment of the eyes, as well as completion of some important visual acuity and other tests that will check for:
- Signs of eye conditions and diseases
- Vision problems such as color blindness or depth perception difficulties
- Vision conditions like astigmatism or near/far-sightedness
We will also want to dilate your pupils so that we can perform a thorough evaluation of the retinas, which is important in screening for signs of macular degeneration, glaucoma, and other problems. If needed, we can also perform additional tests and diagnostics in our office, though we will always explain these and the need for them before we do them.
