Vital for Protecting Your Ocular Health
Your vision is vital for completing everyday tasks, interacting with the people you love, and experiencing the world around you. The best way to protect and preserve your vision for the future is to have regular eye exams.
We’ll complete several tests to determine your visual acuity, check for eye disease, and assess your overall eye health during a comprehensive exam.
How Often Should You Have an Eye Exam?
The frequency of your eye exams depends on your age and current eye health. According to the American Optometric Association, adults aged 18 to 64 with no present eye issues should have an eye exam at least every 2 years. Adults over 65 should have an annual examination.
What Happens During an Eye Exam?
You will participate in several tests throughout your eye exam so we can get a complete picture of your eye health and vision. These diagnostic tests allow us to catch early signs of eye conditions, helping prevent further damage to your eyes.
Some common vision concerns for adults and seniors include:
Your exam begins with a discussion about your medical history. This conversation should cover any eye or vision problems you’re currently experiencing, your work and life habits, family history, and any other relevant information.
Your visual acuity is the clarity or sharpness of your vision. We’ll test your vision by having you read from a chart, helping determine whether or not you require vision correction for a refractive error.
Eye Pressure Measurements
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that can develop with little to no visible symptoms. You may not know you have this condition until you experience vision loss. Many (but not all) forms of glaucoma can increase the pressure within your eye, known as your intraocular pressure (IOP).
Eye Health Evaluation
Using our available technology, we’ll evaluate your overall eye health. This portion of your exam involves looking at the retina and other structures of your eye to look for early signs of eye disease. Early detection of any problems allows us to take action sooner.
