Routine Eye Exam
A routine eye exam is a service provided by a licensed optometrist that provides information on your vision, glasses or contact lens prescription and health of the eyes. We recommend having a routine eye exam every year to avoid neglecting eye conditions such as chronic dry eye, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts all of which can affect your vision.
An exam would be in three parts: Pre-Testing, Refraction, Ocular Health. The technician will perform all of the preliminary testing giving the doctor essential information about your eyes. Then the doctor will check your vision and your prescription. Lastly the doctor will examen the health of your eyes with light and special lenses. A dilated eye exam is also recommended every other year if there is no history of ocular conditions. If you’re over the age of 60, African American and over the age of 40, have a family history of glaucoma or a diabetic then a yearly dilated exam is recommended.
