What is the True Value of a Routine Eye Exam?
We can diagnose any vision problematic conditions early on and recommend corrective eyewear. This is extremely important. Failing to do this can lead to more severe eye problems later on. It is strongly urged that both kids and adults get annual eye exams at the minimum. What's more, getting them bi-yearly is even better. The sooner we can spot potential eye trouble in the patient, the better off they will be.
What Do the Eye Exams Consist Of?
- Reading an eye chart
- Checking for color blindness
- Examining the eyes closely
- Checking each eye separately too
- Glaucoma tests
- Field determinations of hyperopia refraction and other eye conditions
- Complete checks of everything eye related, particularly in a child
- Checking whether or not medications or corrective eyewear are needed
Our professionals know how to accommodate the very little children too. We are here to help children understand that an optometrist is here to help them and to set up a healthy habit of visiting an eye doctor regularly.
