Just as you visit your doctor for an annual physical to make sure your body is healthy, it is important to have your eyes regularly checked for problems that can affect your vision. At OptimEYES, our optometrist offers preventive and comprehensive eye care services to help protect your vision.
Eye exams are part of routine eye care. During these exams, our eye doctor checks for signs or conditions that can impair your vision, such as infections or glaucoma. They also look for signs of other diseases that can affect your eye health, such as diabetes. In addition to checking for illnesses or infections, our optometrist will also measure your vision in order to determine whether or not you need glasses or other corrective lenses. If you already wear corrective lenses, these exams will show whether or not you need to have your prescription adjusted.
The ability to see clearly makes it possible to do everyday tasks with ease, such as driving or reading. When you have regular eye exams done as part of preventive eye care, you are taking an important step toward protecting your vision. Whether an eye exam reveals a medical condition that can affect your vision or the need for corrective lenses due to nearsightedness or farsightedness, your optometrist will make sure that you get the care you need.
Routine eye exams include measurements for visual acuity, preliminary tests for eye muscle movements and other vision factors, refraction to check how your eyes focus light and keratometry to determine the right fit for corrective contact lenses. During the exam, we will also evaluate your overall eye health and test eye focus and movement. If any problems are detected, our optometrist will recommend treatment methods or refer you to a specialist for treatment.
