Primary Eye Care

Eye Refraction Exam

PRIMARY  EYE  CARE  includes a comprehensive vision and eye health examination.   This examination is designed to detect a wide range of problems affecting vision function, such as blurred vision or eye discomfort.
 
Recommended Eye Examination Intervals
 
Unlike the rest of your body, your eyes rarely hurt when something is wrong. Do not rely on changes in your vision, broken glasses or lost contacts to remind you of your next appointment. Follow the advice of the experts at the American Optometric Association.

  • Birth - 24 months: Usually performed by pediatrician
  • 2 - 5 years old: An examination by 3 years of age
  • 6 - 18 years old: An examination before entering 1st grade and every 2 years following*
  • 19 - 40 years old: Every 2 or 3 years*
  • 41 - 60 years old: Every 2 years*
  • 61 and older: Every year*

 

*Patients should be advised to seek eye care more frequently than recommended re-examinationh interval if new ocular, visual or systemic health problems develop. In addition, the optometrist may recommend more frequent re-examinations of certain patients at risk. Such patients include those with diabetes, hypertension, or a family history of glaucoma; those working in occupations that are highly demanding visually or eye hazardous; thos taking prescription or nonprescription drugs with ocular side effects; and those with other health concerns or conditions. (From AOA Clinical Practice Guidelines.)
 

Eye Exam

 

 

 

 

Here at our office we incorporate computerized technology to assist the evaluation of spectacle prescriptions, peripheral vision, intraocular pressure, and eye health.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eye Doctor Exam

 

 

 

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.

 

 Eye Exam Dilated Pupils

 

 

 

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.
