Focusing on Comprehensive Eye Exams

This month is Healthy Vision Month. When did you last have a comprehensive eye exam? Getting your eyes tested regularly is one of the most important things you can do to be sure that your vision remains strong and healthy. During your procedure, your optometrist examines your eyes, looking for common eye diseases and vision issues, several of which lack early modes of detection.

The procedure will begin with what's known as a visual acuity test, which uses an eye chart to assess how good your sight is at different distances. The exterior of your eye also gets tested.

Once your tests have concluded, your eye care professional may examine your retina using specialized diagnostic technology. This really matters, as it will provide vital information about your eye health, as well as information regarding your overall health. For example, it can reveal signs of diseases such as diabetes and also indicate high blood pressure.

Finally, you will be screened for signs of glaucoma. Your optometrist will do this by checking your eye pressure, using a small puff of air directed straight onto your eye.

Anytime is the right time to protect your vision. Make your eye health come first, and call to schedule an examination today.
