Eyes change. Even if your visual acuity has not changed perceptibly, it is vital to annually check on all aspects of your eye health including the present structure and function of the eyes.
Many eye diseases don’t present with symptoms at all until permanent damage finally causes a person to notice. But by then it can be too late to recover lost visual functions. It is imperative to think about your eye health along with your vision.
During a comprehensive eye exam, we start with preliminary testing by our well-trained optometric technicians. They will test your vision with an autorefractor, visual acuities, visual field test, color vision test and eye pressure check.
Digital retinal photography is available, as well. In most cases, using the Optomap retinal imaging device provides an even better view of the retina without the need for dilation drops.
Our eye doctors will determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, while also checking the health of your eyes for common eye diseases. The doctors will also assess how your eyes work together as a team and gain clues to the state of your overall health. Your eyes are the windows to your health in many ways.
A comprehensive eye exam includes a number of tests and procedures to examine and evaluate the health of your eyes and the quality of your vision.
