Annual Vision Exams
An annual vision exam is an opportunity for our doctors to assess the health of your eyes and vision. It’s important that everyone in your family, especially children, to have their regular exams. As children are still developing, any problem areas can be identified early on, before they interfere with school, sports, or other activities. During the eye exam, our doctor will also use a series of standard tests to see how well your eyes are functioning.
Common Eye Tests
There are several eye tests that we commonly use. The first is a visual acuity test that determines how well someone can see both near and far distances. A refraction test indicates if someone is myopic (nearsighted), hyperopic (farsighted), or an astigmatism. Our doctors also test your depth perception and peripheral vision. As part of your comprehensive eye exam, we will test your color vision and perception. Your eye focusing ability is also tested. It’s important to know whether or not you have any of these issues to better understand what visual limitations you may have. Understanding your limitations allows you to work with them, so they don’t hold you back.
Contact Lens Exams
If you need glasses, but don’t want to wear them, consider trying contact lenses. There are many different types of lenses available today to address your needs. These include extended wear, disposables, rigid gas-permeable, and soft daily wear lenses. Our doctors will be able to discuss your options. During the contact lens exams, precise measurements are taken to make sure you leave with the size and strength lens that’s right for you.
