Do I Need an Eye Exam?
If you suffer from an eye disorder, it's important to get an eye exam done yearly. Vision disorders are common and can cause a variety of symptoms including:
- Blurry vision
- Double vision
- Trouble focusing
- Tunnel vision
- Dark spots
- Eye strain
- Physical changes to the eye
- Red eyes
- Eye pain
If you find yourself suffering from any of these symptoms, it's best to come in for an eye exam regardless of your age or pre-existing vision disorders.
What Happens During an Eye Exam?
Our optometrist will conduct an eye exam to test your vision and determine if there are any underlying vision disorders. He will do this by testing your ability to read from an eye chart at varying sizes of letters. He may also dilate your eyes to get a deeper look inside of the structure of your eye.
Our optometrist may also measure your eye pressure, as high eye pressure can cause glaucoma and is crucial to treat early on. After your eye exam, our optometrist will determine if you have any eye diseases and prescribe the proper treatment. This can include contacts, eyeglasses, possible surgery for conditions such as cataracts, medications, and eye drops.
An eye exam is the first step in ensuring your overall eye health remains optimal.
