Why Are Eye Exams Important?

Eye exams are a vital part of looking after not only your ocular health, but your overall health as well. They let us check your vision and recommend glasses or contact lenses. They also allow us to check for eye diseases that could threaten your eyesight if not treated properly.

Our goal is to gain as much insight as possible into your unique eye health so we can work with you to care for your eyes. By thoroughly investigating every aspect of your eyes, we can determine the right course of treatment and get a complete picture of your eye health.

How It Works

A few critical steps to your eye exam help give us the information we need to take care of your eyes. Each step is essential to our comprehensive eye exam process. By looking at the fine details of your eye, we reveal the larger picture of your overall eye health.

Eye Health History

During your visit, we go over your complete eye health history before completing any testing. Certain factors like age, health conditions like diabetes and heart disease, and lifestyle all inform your eye health. It’s also crucial to understand your family’s history with eye health.

We’ll ask about previous eye injuries, lens prescriptions, and your lifestyle habits and vision needs. This information helps us assess which areas we would like to focus on during the rest of your exam.

During your exam, we take time to assess your vision through refractive testing. This testing helps us determine if you’re experiencing a refractive error like myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. These conditions often cause blurry vision and are corrected with tools like eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Refractive tests determine how light moves through your eyes and where it lands in relation to your retina. After understanding if you have a refractive error, we use a phoropter to build a prescription to correct it.

We complete a series of tests to determine if you show signs of eye diseases like glaucoma, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration. Depending on your eye history assessment, we can also test for diabetic eye diseases and dry eye disease.

Early diagnosis can help protect you from vision loss caused by eye diseases. When you visit us, we carefully consider your eye disease risk. This assessment helps us give you all the information you need regarding your eye health.

If we determine you need glasses or contact lenses, we’ll explain all of your options so you can decide which vision correction method you’re most comfortable with. Our wide selection of frames ensures we can find a style that suits your personality and vision correction needs.

Regarding contacts, we take pride in finding the right lenses to suit your needs. Whether you need toric lenses for astigmatism or scleral lenses for irregularly-shaped corneas and dry eye relief, we’ll work closely with you to find the right fit for your eyes.
