When did you last have a comprehensive eye exam?
Checking your eyes periodically is one of the best things you can do to make sure your vision remains in top form. During this session, your eye care professional examines your eyes, making sure you’re clear of commonly occurring eye diseases and vision issues, some of which have no early warning symptoms.
The procedure will begin with what’s referred to as a visual acuity test through the use of an eye chart to measure how your vision behaves at different distances. The outside of your eye will also be assessed.
Once these tests are finished, your eye care professional may go ahead and examine your retina using specialized diagnostic technology. This part of the exam is very important, because it will tell your optometrist crucial information about your eye health, as well as information regarding your overall health. To give an example, it can reveal signs of diabetes and also point to abnormal blood pressure.
You will also be screened for signs of glaucoma. Your optometrist will do this by measuring the pressure in your eye, using a quick puff of air pointed onto the eye.
It’s time to protect your vision. Make your eye health a priority, and call to schedule an examination today.
