Vision and Eye Exams are a Critical Part of Visual Healthcare
Regular vision and eye exams are a critical part of preventive visual healthcare. Because many eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms, we recommend annual eye exams for everyone, especially those who already wear corrective lenses and anyone with a history of eye disease.
While each eye exam is customized to the needs of the patient, it typically begins with a pre-test including keratometry to measure the curvature of the cornea, color and depth perception evaluation, and a glaucoma screening. The eye exam will include patient history, visual acuity, and a refraction to determine the appropriate lens power needed to compensate for vision deficiencies. Finally we’ll check overall eye health including eyelids and surrounding eye tissue.
We encourage you to also consider retinal photography which can be an important tool to detect vision and health problems and an effective way to track retinal changes over time.
