Vision Care. Seeing is Believing.
A comprehensive eye examination is important for maintaining healthy vision and should be done at least once a year. Many eye problems, such as glaucoma and macular degeneration, have no early symptoms- so regular eye exams are the best way to catch these conditions before they cause serious damage.
During a comprehensive eye exam, the eye doctor will check your vision, eye health, and ask you about any symptoms you may be experiencing. Be sure to tell the doctor about any changes in your vision, as well as any pain or discomfort in your eyes.
The eye doctor will also check your eye pressure, which is important for detecting glaucoma. A comprehensive eye exam usually takes about an hour, and you may need to schedule additional time for dilation if your pupils are not dilating properly.
If you have any concerns about your eye health, or if you are experiencing any vision problems, be sure to schedule a comprehensive eye exam with an eye doctor as soon as possible.
If you have never had a comprehensive eye exam, or it has been more than a year since your last one, schedule an appointment with an eye doctor today.
