Comprehensive Annual Eye Exams
Regular eye exams are an important tool in eye health for detecting and preventing eye diseases and evaluating the overall health of the patient. Some diseases, such as glaucoma, develop gradually without symptoms or vision loss, so patients may not notice that anything is wrong until significant and irreversible damage as been done. Early detection of eye diseases allows for a better choice of treatment options and a reduced risk of permanent damage.


Regularly Scheduled Comprehensive Eye Exams
Patients should schedule a comprehensive eye exam every year. Children should also have annual eye exams to ensure proper development of their vision and prevent any interference with academic achievement. Older adults are often at a higher risk for eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts. Even if your eyes are healthy, a regular eye exam will allow the doctor to view the blood vessels in the back of the eye. With information obtained during an examination of the eyes, our doctors have been able to detect chronic conditions such as cholesterol, diabetes, and high blood pressure. The early detection of these conditions can lead to early treatment.

The Comprehensive Eye Exam
An eye exam is different than a vision screening, which only tests visual acuity, and is commonly performed by a school nurse or other health care provider. Only your eye doctor can perform a comprehensive eye exam to evaluate the overall health of your eyes and detect any changes that may indicate a vision disorder.

EYE EXAM

Here are signs that you should get another exam soon:
• Your eyes are red, dry, itchy, seeing spots, flashes of light, or floaters.
• You have diabetes or another health condition that affects your eyes.
• You get motion sick, dizzy, or have trouble following a moving target.
• You can't remember when you last had an eye exam, you’re overdue.
• You have difficulty driving at night and seeing street signs in the dark.
• Changes in your vision, especially after an incident of head trauma.
• You experience eye strain, headaches and/or blurred vision.
• Spending an extended amount of time in front of a computer screen.
• A family history of conditions like diabetes or glaucoma.
