COMPREHENSIVE EYE EXAM  

 

Annual eye exams help to ensure that you are seeing clearly and facilitate regular monitoring of your  general health and not just your about your eyes.

 

During a comprehensive eye exam, we will test your visual acuity, check for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes function together, and evaluate your overall health by looking into your eyes.

No matter your age or physical health, an annual eye exam can help to detect early stages of medical conditions that have no obvious signs or symptoms. Your eyes are windows to the live action of blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues throughout your body. Problems spotted in the eye are often the first signs of disease lurking elsewhere

EXAM FREQUENCY

  • At 6 months of age

  • 3 years of age

  • 6 years of age and older annually

  • Hypertensive and Diabetic patients every 6-12 months.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR YEARLY APPOINTMENT

- Retinal imaging and OCT to evaluate your retina, macula and optic nerve

- Visual Field to evaluate your peripheral vision 

- Test to detect eye misalignment that can cause Eyestrain, Headaches, Migraines, etc. 

- Intraocular Pressure 

- Topography (if needed)

- Visual Acuity Test 

- Health History

- Refraction 

- Contact lens evaluation 

The appointment takes longer than your regular annual primary care exam because there is so much more testing we have to do, so plan ahead for your time, and bring your glasses and contacts with you. 

Come see us every year, but if you have other eye health concerns, such as blurry vision, red eyes, dryness, infection, pain, floaters, flashes of light, loss of vision, headaches, foreign body, please come see us sooner.
