We strongly recommend annual eye and vision exams for all patients, even if you haven’t noticed any changes in your eye or vision health. With routine comprehensive eye exams, our optometrist can be on the lookout for signs of problems that you may otherwise not notice until a serious eye disease or condition has progressed. With early detection of eye problems, we have the best chances for treatment and management. Furthermore, routine eye exams are important for staying on top of any changes in your corrective vision prescription by testing the following:
- Visual acuity—Measures the quality of your current vision.
- Refraction—Tests the potential lens prescriptions that would optimize your vision.
- Focus and Eye Coordination—Tests how well your eyes work together and how quickly and accurately your eyes are able to focus on objects and varying distances.
