A comprehensive eye exam is an essential part of maintaining your overall health and well-being. The exam evaluates all aspects of your vision and eye health. We’ll take a look at your eyes internally and externally for any signs of eye disease, such as cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy. We will test your vision in a variety of ways, including how your eyes focus at different distances. Our state-of-the-art equipment allows us to detect even the slightest problems with your vision or eye health.
In addition to assessing vision and ocular health, many systemic health problems can lead to changes in the eyes. A comprehensive eye exam will look for these changes and how they relate to your overall health. Your eye exam may reveal findings relating to conditions including diabetes, hypertension, autoimmune disease (rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, etc.), and even more rare conditions like brain tumors along the visual pathway.
Comprehensive eye exams are important for people of all ages. The American Optometric Association recommends that all adults between the ages of 18-60 have an eye exam every two years. People over 60 will likely need an exam each year. Your eye doctor will recommend a follow-up schedule based on your specific exam findings.
