Benefits of Routine Eye Exams
On top of determining or updating eyeglass and contact lens prescriptions, our doctors also check for common conditions, evaluate vision in relation to overall health, and assess vision balance. This comprehensive examination helps our patients catch vision problems early, before they escalate and cause serious issues.
What Doctors Check for During an Eye Exam
During an eye exam, one of our doctors will check both eyes to detect problems or diseases that could lead to vision deterioration or loss. Using various techniques and the latest technologies, we check for nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, amblyopia, strabismus, focusing problems, age-related conditions, eye teaming problems, and eye disease. Because vision is connected to overall health, an eye exam could also catch the development of other conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and others.
Signs You Need an Eye Exam
A number of signs indicate that it is time for an eye exam. Redness, dryness, or itchiness could be symptoms of a condition that needs attention. Other symptoms include seeing spots or floaters, difficulty driving at night, headaches, blurred vision, dizziness, and a change in vision. Some health conditions such as diabetes or a family history of glaucoma also require regular eye examinations.
