What To Expect In Your Eye Examination?
Modern eye examinations are not just about checking your eyesight, they include important health checks and screenings for conditions like glaucoma, diabetes and high blood pressure. Alongside these important tests, your optometrist will ask you some questions about your medical status, family history and any symptoms you are experiencing.
This helps them to create a full profile of your eye health and assess your risk of vision loss and certain eye conditions. At the end of the exam, your optometrist will explain their assessment and let you know if you need any additional care, treatment or vision correction.
Having your eyes examined every two years is one of the best things you can do for your eye health. As well as checking up on your eyesight, optometrists can screen for eye conditions and examine the health of different parts of your eyes so any problems can be diagnosed early on. There are also many things you can do on your own to take care of your eyes like eating healthily and wearing quality sunglasses to protect them from the sun.
We like to make sure all of our patients not only get the best care available but are kept up-to-date with relevant and helpful eye care information.
