First and foremost, our eye doctor 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 our eye doctor 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, our eye doctor can determine if you are a candidate for LASIK. If you’re interested in laser vision correction, feel free to speak with us about your particular eyesight & vision health. Our eye doctor 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.
If you experience any symptoms or feel concerned that your eyesight is abnormal, contact our practice. Medical insurance can provide coverage for an eye exam when there is a medical concern. Medical insurance will not cover an eye exam for an updated prescription on eyewear or contact lenses. More about insurances can be read here.
