The Eye Examination
I'm seeing fine! Why do I need to have my eyes examined?
Clear vision does not necessarily mean optical visual performance! Many patients, especially those who work on computers, can't believe the improvement we can give them when they thought their eyes were fine originally. In fact, most people with mild focusing or muscle coordination deficiencies may not realize how much they have to compensate for these problems. Their symptoms may be so subtle that they may not even associate them with their eyes(sleepiness, loss of concentration, etc.)
An important part of each eye examination is a thorough check of your eye health. We want to make sure that there are no signs of eye diseases or general health problems that may be manifested in the eyes. In addition to eye conditions such as glaucoma, retinal diseases, cataracts, and so on, we also look for signs of hypertension, diabetes, hardening of the arteries, thyroid disease, and other general health conditions. Our goal is to detect subtle vision and eye health problems before they become major problems!
We recomment that most people have their eyes examined at least every 12-18 months. Most insurance plans cover examinations every year and glasses every one or two years.
