Primary Eye Care


Primary Eye CarePRIMARY  EYE  CARE  includes a comprehensive vision and eye health examination.   This examination is designed to detect a wide range of problems affecting vision function, such as blurred vision or eye discomfort.

 

Your comprehensive eye exam will take approximately one hour. It includes testing for eye health conditions like glaucoma and cataracts, plus vision, focusing and eye muscle problems. A visual field exam is taken to test peripheral vision. Retinal photographs are taken to diagnose and document retinal health. Corneal topography is also performed to document eye health associated with contact lens wear and dry eyes.

 

Evaluations for eye health disorders are also performed. The American Optometric Association recommends that all people should have a periodic, comprehensive eye examination every one to two years depending on ones particular needs.

 

Here at our office we incorporate computerized technology to assist the evaluation of spectacle prescriptions, peripheral vision, intraocular pressure, and eye health. Computerized examination instruments are used to supplement rather than replace personalized care. Examinations include tests for glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and the ocular effects of many general health disorders such as diabetes and high blood pressure, as well as effects of medications. A dilated pupil examination allows us to provide the best assessment of eye health.  It is recommended for all new patients and on a scheduled basis thereafter.
