Comprehensive Eye Examinations

Experiencing blurry vision, seeing spots, or glare at night? These are common eye complaints that might be harmless annoyances or early signs of disease. Because it is not always easy to tell the difference, we encourage you to make an appointment as soon as possible. We also advise an annual routine eye exam, since many eye conditions have no symptoms in their earlier stages.

When To Have Your Eyes Examined

Routine eye exams are important regardless of your age or your physical health. The American Optometric Association recommends that you have a complete eye exam at least every one to three years, depending on your age, risk factors and whether you currently wear corrective lenses.

 

Children should have their first eye exam at six months of age, another exam at age three and again at the start of school. Children that do not show risk factors for vision problems can continue to have their eyes examined every two years until age 18, while those that do may need more frequent checkups.

 

Have questions about how often you, your children, or elderly parents should have their eyes examined? Give us a call for guidance!

What To Expect During Your Exam

To get the most out of your eye exam, bring a list of any prescription or nonprescription medications you are currently taking or that you took on a regular basis in the past. Be sure to include vitamins, herbs and other non-traditional remedies you may use, as well as dosages for each.

 

Your eye examination may take up to an hour (or a little more), depending on your history and any recommended testing. From simple vision tests to looking closely at the health of your eyes, you will find a brief overview of the most common aspects of an examination below.

Preventing Eye-Strain

While there are many ways to check how your eyes work together, the cover test is the simplest and most common. Just cover one eye and focus on a small object across the room, and we will check to see how much your uncovered eye must move to see the target.

Measuring Your Vision

The visual acuity test is used to measure the sharpness of your vision by determining the smallest letter you can read on a standardized chart.

Can You See Colors?

Not only for detecting hereditary color vision deficiencies, the color blind test can also indicate possible eye health problems that may affect your color vision.

Fine Tuning Your Prescription

If it is decided you would benefit from an eyeglass prescription, we will perform a refraction test. An instrument is placed in front of your eyes, which allows you to comfortably look through a series of lenses. We will narrow down your prescription by asking which combination appears the clearest.

Detecting Early Signs of Infection or Disease

Much like looking through a microscope, a slit lamp examination allows us a magnified view of the structures in your eye in order to evaluate your overall ocular health. This test can assist in the early detection of a wide range of eye conditions and diseases including cataracts, macular degeneration, corneal ulcers, and diabetic retinopathy.
