The Importance of Regular Eye Exams

Regular eye exams are a valuable tool to maintaining the health of your eyes by detecting and preventing disease. Some diseases develop slowly and painlessly before causing vision loss. Early detection of these problems can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options. We regularly screen for diseases such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, which can develop without any noticeable symptoms.


The Comprehensive Eye Examination

.A comprehensive Eye Exam typically includes a vision screening, eye pressure measurement, slit lamp examination, and dilated eye exam.  These exams may reveal the need for additional testing which may include refraction, visual field testing, OCT imaging, and others.
