Primary eye care includes a comprehensive vision and eye health examination. Our examination is designed to detect a wide range of problems affecting visual function, such as blurred vision or eye discomfort. A thorough evaluation for eye health disorders are also performed. As most systemic diseases have an ocular manifestation, a comprehensive eye exam should be a part of your regular wellness checks. This is why the American Optometric Association recommends that all people have a comprehensive eye examination every one to two years depending on a patient’s individual needs.
Here at our office we incorporate computerized technology to assist in the evaluation of spectacle prescriptions, intraocular pressure, field of vision 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.
