What Do Your Eyes Really Need?
Eye exams give us the opportunity to spot problems you won’t notice on your own and take action before your vision suffers. We screen for eye diseases and vision problems of many kinds, then create custom strategies to address anything we find.
Some eye diseases have no symptoms until they’ve already caused permanent vision loss. Our help can be vital for catching problems early and avoiding that risk. We also update prescriptions to help every patient find effective glasses or contacts after their exam.
Your eyes deserve leading preventive care, and we can’t wait to provide it. Schedule your next appointment now.
Booking Eye Exams for Adults & Seniors
According to the American Optometric Association, adults should have eye exams once every 2 years until age 65 and once a year from then on. However, patients with issues needing more attention may benefit from seeing their eye doctor more frequently.
We provide custom eye exam schedules for each patient based on their specific needs. When you choose to have your eye exams with us, you can rest assured we’re truly looking out for your best interests.
The Eye Exam Process Explained
Our eye exams typically run from 30 to 60 minutes but might take longer if you need additional tests. If we think that might happen, though, we always make sure to let you know in advance.
One of the first things we usually do during the exam is ask a few questions about your personal and family medical history. We might also ask about any medications you’re taking. Then, you’ll have an opportunity to tell us about any eye or vision concerns you have before we begin our tests.
We’ll most likely test:
- How sharp and clear your eyesight is (also known as visual acuity).
- Your ability to see objects near the fringes of your visual field (also known as peripheral vision).
- How your pupils behave when exposed to light (also known as pupillary response).
- The movement of your eyes.
We also look at the overall health of each eye, paying attention to specific parts like the cornea, lenses, irises, retinas, and optic nerves. If we find anything that might indicate an eye disease or vision problem, we’ll make sure to tell you immediately and recommend appropriate next steps.
