This should be annual and treated like the rest of your body as your vision will gradually change as you age. Our professional staff strive to provide patients with the highest level of friendly service, and precise ocular assessments to ensure you receive first class health care for your eyes.
Adults should regularly schedule an eye exam to keep eyewear prescriptions current and to consistently check for signs of eye disease. Preserve your eyesight yearly to see clearly.
Children should have regularly scheduled eye exams because they often do not know what proper vision looks like, so they do not complain until something irritates them or it's too late for treatment. Vision is significantly linked to their learning development, so if your child is struggling in school or exhibits reading disabilities, we strongly recommend scheduling an eye examination to determine if there are any visual disabilities.
An Eye Exam Pretest will be performed by one of our qualified optometric assistants. Tests include:
- visual acuity testing
- pressure testing
- manual visual field testing
Our comprehensive Eye Exam involves a series of tests to evaluate the different aspects of your vision and eye health. Some of the testing is not done during every exam and greatly depends on your age, your eye health, and your overall health.
