What happens during a comprehensive eye exam?
The experts at Optic Gallery Fort Apache begin by reviewing your medical history and discussing any concerns or symptoms with you. The team tests your vision with an eye chart and uses advanced diagnostic equipment, such as the iWellness® scan and digital retinal imaging to check your eyesight and screen for signs of ocular disease.
A comprehensive eye exam typically includes an assessment of the following.
- Visual acuity (nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, etc.)
- Internal eye pressure
- Eye muscle function
- Eye surface health
- Eye pupil dilation response
- Retina and optic nerve health
Your exam should take around 45-60 minutes. Your provider discusses the results of your eye exam with you; if you need vision correction or have an eye condition, they provide detailed information about your treatment options. Fittings for contact lenses take additional time to complete.
How often should I have an eye exam?
To ensure that you have proper vision correction and to identify new eye conditions and monitor any existing concerns, the team at Optic Gallery Fort Apache recommends yearly eye exams. Many eye conditions don’t have noticeable symptoms, and an eye exam is the only way to detect them.
If you have an increased risk for eye disease, your provider may recommend more frequent eye exams.
Risk factors for ocular disease include:
- Past eye injuries
- Occupations that require protective eyewear
- Family history of eye conditions
If you have eye pain or notice any unusual changes to your vision, such as blurriness or sensitivity to light, don’t wait to schedule an eye exam with the experts at Optic Gallery Fort Apache. These symptoms may indicate a serious eye condition that requires prompt treatment.
