When patients schedule an eye exam many times it is for a new prescription, but what many people do not know is that a simple eye exam can also detect various health issues. Images taken of your eye allow the doctor to examine blood vessels and compare the formation with previous photographs to rule out diabetes, hypertensive retinopathy, and cardiovascular problems. Increased ocular pressure can indicate you are developing glaucoma. Our focus is on you.
Regardless if you are here for a routine eye exam or a vision health appointment, every appointment will start with a thoroughly trained optometric technician who will complete various preliminary tests in preparation for the doctor. Medical history and routine facts about your health will be obtained. Numerous tests will be completed which may include: depth perception, eye muscle movement, eye alignment, color vision, peripheral/side vision, pupils response to light, and visual acuity. The doctor will then review all obtained information and conduct his thorough portion of the exam.
Many eye and vision problems have no obvious symptoms or signs. Early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent vision loss.
