What’s Included in a Routine Eye Exam in Ft Lauderdale?

eye exam in ft lauderdale flFirst and foremost, Dr. Carla Teich will sit with you and listen to any concerns you may have about your vision as well as goals you want to achieve in your vision care.

She’ll examine your vision with and without glasses and/or contact lenses and test your eye coordination. This helps determine if you need a prescription for glasses. She will discuss various options available to design glasses that fit your needs, such as which type of computer glasses would help your specific field of work (with particular care to determine what distance fits best.)

She will also use the Nidek auto refractor handheld device to get a digital measurement of your eyes. She will do a complete health evaluation, including the pathology in the eye, checking the eye both inside and out for conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and check your eye pressure.

Each routine eye exam performed by Dr. Teich will include the same assessments as a comprehensive eye exam such as eye muscle coordination, neurological assessment of pupils, ocular motility and visual fields, glaucoma and cataract evaluation, and check for indicators of your body’s overall health.

After a thorough eye exam, Dr. Teich can determine if you are a candidate for LASIK. If you’re interested in laser vision correction, feel free to speak with Dr. Teich about your particular eyesight & vision health. Dr. Teich can also discuss options with you about contact lens fittings, which would require a separate exam with additional charges.

A routine eye exam should be scheduled annually to ensure optimal eye health, especially as eye conditions may progress without signs or symptoms. Eye disease like glaucoma or macular degeneration, for example, can lead to vision loss without proper management and prevention, yet symptoms will only be noticeable after the eye disease has progressed to a moderate to severe level.eye exam in ft lauderdale fl

Carla Paris Teich, OD

Dr. Teich discovered her passion for optometry after her first childhood eye exam.  As with many young patients the experience of seeing details for the first time was a memorable one.  It was at this early age that Dr. Teich knew helping to provide and maintain excellent vision and eye health to people of all ages and backgrounds would be a meaningful career path. Growing up in Virginia gave Dr. Teich a strong sense of community and service to others.  She has carried those values through her 34 years of optometric practice in Broward County.  Her commitment, understanding and dedication are only surpassed by her ability to communicate with patients to ensure the best care possible.
