Comprehensive Annual Eye Exams
Regular eye exams are an important tool in eye health for detecting and preventing eye diseases and evaluating the overall health of the patient. Some diseases, such as glaucoma, develop gradually without symptoms or vision loss, so patients may not notice that anything is wrong until significant and irreversible damage as been done. Early detection of eye diseases allows for a better choice of treatment options and a reduced risk of permanent damage.
Hate eye drops and air puffs?
With the latest technology, your exam may
not have to include any eyedrops and we
have not air puffed any eyes since 1998!
Regularly Scheduled Comprehensive Eye Exams
Patients should schedule a comprehensive eye exam every year. Children should also have annual eye exams to ensure proper development of their vision and prevent any interference with academic achievement. Older adults are often at a higher risk for eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts.
Even if your eyes are healthy, a regular eye exam will allow the doctor to view the blood vessels in the back of the eye.
With information obtained during an examination of the eyes, our doctors are able to detect chronic conditions such as cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure and even autoimmune diseases. The early detection of these conditions can lead to early treatment.
The Comprehensive Eye Exam
An eye exam is different than a vision screening, which only tests visual acuity, and is commonly performed by a school nurse or other health care provider.

damaged, or showing signs of disease.
