Complete Eyecare is More Than Just a Vision Test
Your eye examination consists of various tests to evaluate the health of your eyes and determine what prescription lenses you need for the clearest possible vision. It is an interesting and totally comfortable experience.
Our office will refer any patient to the appropriate specialist if we detect or suspect any pathology or visual problem not treated by us.
We use several instruments and procedures to evaluate the health of your eyes. With the ophthalmoscope, your doctor can actually see inside your eye to check for cataracts, retinal problems and evidence of systemic diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure. A pressure test for glaucoma is done with the tonometer. Other routine tests include visual fields and slit lamp biomicroscopy.
The refraction is a series of lens tests to determine the proper prescription for eye glasses or contact lenses. We will take your special needs and preferences into consideration before determining the final correction. We strive for the utmost in accuracy and precision.
When Should You Have Your Next Eye Exam?
Every year, or sooner if recommended by your doctor. Many people equate the need for an eye examination with replacing their eyeglasses. While it's certainly important to see well, undesirable changes in your eye can occur which, in their early stages, do not adversely affect vision. Unlike the rest of your body, your eyes rarely hurt when something is wrong. Do not rely on broken glasses or changes in your vision to remind you of your next appointment. Follow the advice of experts and have your eyes examined on a regular basis.
