Why Eye Exams Are Important  

Eye exams are not just about updating your vision prescription—they play a pivotal role in preserving your long-term eye health too. Your eyes are windows to your overall well-being, and regular eye exams can detect early signs of various health conditions, from diabetes to hypertension.

Our experienced optometrists at Eyesis Eyecare are big proponents of proactive eye care. Many eye conditions, such as glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration, develop gradually and without noticeable early symptoms. Book your exam with us today to get support for staying ahead of those subtle conditions.

How Often Should I Have an Eye Exam?

Maintaining a routine eye exam schedule is important for both adults and seniors. We recommend a comprehensive eye exam every 2 years for adults under 65, and annually for those over 65. 

However, individual needs may vary, and people with a higher risk of eye complications, such as those with a family history of eye diseases or pre-existing conditions, may require a modified eye exam schedule. 

Not Just a Cookie-Cutter Exam

Regular eye exams allow for early detection and intervention of eye conditions, potentially preventing irreversible damage and helping preserve your vision.

In our commitment to personalized eye care, Eyesis Eyecare works hard to determine what each patient needs and provide individualized attention. We always take your medical history, lifestyle, and unique visual demands into account.

Eye Exams & Your Eye Health

Beyond assessing your vision, eye exams can provide valuable insights into your overall health. Conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure can show early warning signs in your eyes. By monitoring changes in your eye health, we can collaborate with your primary healthcare provider to help manage systemic health conditions.

By taking a holistic approach to eye care and your health, we go beyond simply providing prescriptions for glasses. We prioritize your well-being, understanding that healthy eyes can contribute to a healthier you.

What’s Included in Your Eye Exam?

At Eyesis Eyecare, some of the steps you can expect during your eye exam include:

  • Testing visual acuity & refraction: This involves assessing visual sharpness to determine accurate prescriptions for eyeglasses and contact lenses.
  • Ocular health check: An examination for signs of conditions like glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration.
  • Optomap: A wide-field retina digital photograph is included in your eye exam. This allows our doctors to help screen for eye diseases, such as glaucoma and macular degeneration.
  • Intraocular pressure testing: A precise measurement to identify potential issues like glaucoma.
  • Peripheral vision & binocular vision testing: An evaluation of overall visual function and coordination.
  • Results discussion: A review of your exam findings that involves addressing your concerns and answering your questions.
  • Personalized recommendations: Tailored advice on eyewear and further treatment options based on your needs.

If you see people constantly adjusting their glasses, this usually means they don’t fit well or they’re not wearing them correctly. Your glasses should be positioned on your nose in a sweet spot—high enough so they don’t fall off, yet not so high that they press uncomfortably against your brow or forehead.  […]
