Comprehensive Assessment of Eye Health

During an eye exam, our optometrist will conduct various tests to evaluate different aspects of your eye health. These tests may include checking visual acuity, assessing eye movement and coordination, examining the external and internal structures of the eye, and measuring intraocular pressure. Additionally, we may perform specialized tests to screen for conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration. Early detection of these eye diseases is key to preventing vision loss.

Detection of Vision Problems

In addition to assessing eye health, eye exams also help detect and correct vision problems. Many individuals may not realize they have refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, until they undergo a comprehensive eye exam. By accurately diagnosing these vision problems, we can prescribe corrective lenses or recommend other appropriate treatments.

Guidance on Proper Eye Care

Beyond diagnosing eye conditions and vision problems, our eye doctor can offer guidance on proper eye care practices. We may recommend healthy eye habits, such as wearing protective eyewear, taking regular breaks from digital screens, and practicing good hygiene to prevent eye infections. Additionally, our optometrist can advise you on the importance of nutrition and lifestyle factors in supporting optimal eye health.
