Comprehensive Eye Exams for Optimal Eye Health
Your sight is precious and should be taken care of. An eye exam allows your eye doctor to screen for common eye conditions and diseases, assess how well your eyes work together, and determine your general health.
One of our eye doctors will examine your eyes to ensure an accurate and updated prescription.
This includes a simple eye chart test, a detailed look at the inner tissues of the eyes using a high-powered lens, and more. They’ll also determine the most suitable corrective measures for your vision requirements, if necessary.
Don't wait any longer—schedule your annual eye exam today and stay on top of your eye health.
Eye Care for Everyone
The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends that people who wear eyeglasses or contact lenses should go for yearly eye exams. Even if you don't need vision correction, an annual eye exam is still recommended, as many eye diseases begin without producing any noticeable symptoms.
People with health conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure may need more frequent eye exams because these diseases can impact vision and eye health.
Adults over 40 also need routine eye exams because presbyopia (age-related farsightedness) usually begins at this age. Additionally, people aged 60 and above are at higher risk of eye diseases such as cataracts and macular degeneration, which makes routine eye care important for preserving vision and maintaining eye health.
Eye Exams for Children
Vision problems can negatively impact a child's learning and development, which is why regular eye exams for children are essential.
This is shown by studies that suggest that about 5% to 10% of pre-schoolers and 25% of school-aged children have vision issues.
Children should have eye exams at 6 months of age, age 3, and again when they start school. If your child wears glasses or contacts, annual exams are recommended. For children without vision problems or risk factors, annual eye exams throughout their school years are advised.
However, children with existing vision problems or risk factors should have more frequent eye exams, or as recommended by their optometrist.
Several factors increase the likelihood of vision problems, such as:
- Having a family history of eye conditions
- Premature birth
- Developmental delays
- Crossed or misaligned eyes
- Certain medical conditions
- Turned or crossed eyes
- History of eye injury
Identifying and addressing these risk factors through regular eye exams can help detect and manage potential vision issues early on, ensuring good eye health and success in academic and everyday activities.
