Comprehensive Eye Exams

Many eye diseases have no obvious symptoms such as vision loss, pain, redness or discharge. Some eye diseases show symptoms only at an advanced stage when treatment is difficult or impossible to perform.

A complete eye examination can detect these problems and treat them in time. It is recommended that children take their first eye exam between the ages of six and nine months. Children should have at least one exam between the age of two and five, and then every year from school entry. Adults should undergo a test every two years, except for the elderly, for whom the frequency should be annual. Optometrists do not just ensure the quality of vision and the health of the eyes: they also promote quality of life.

During an eye exam, we will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications you are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment, and your overall health. Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. We will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.

Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our doctors will measure how each eye is seeing by using a digital eye chart. Depending on the results of your vision test, our doctors may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or refer you to an ophthalmologist.

As part of a comprehensive eye exam, we examine the overall health of the eye. We evaluate eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils or review a picture using a retinal digital camera. Our doctors are able to determine if you have age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, just to name few of the possible eye disease. After completing the evaluation of your eye health, our doctors will review the results and discusses treatments with you.

Diabetic Wellness Eye Exam

If you are diabetic, you are more at risk of eye disease and complications. One of the tests performed by the optometrist at the office is the use of dilation drops to assess the health of the retina (which is the back of your eye).

These drops will make your vision blurry for two to four hours; therefore is it important to bring a driver with you. With your authorization, the optometrist will then share the results of this examination with your family doctor.
