At Bright Eyes Vision Clinic, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary and specialty eye care for the whole family. Annual eye exams are important to maintaining good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our optometrist is able provide treatment options and in many cases restore or prevent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends yearly exams.
Annual eye exams can also help in the early detection and treatment of other conditions, like high blood pressure or diabetes. The eyes are a window to whole body health. Our comprehensive vision exams include vision testing, eye health checks and eye function testing. Depending on the results of your comprehensive exam, our doctors may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, and/or further testing to determine if other treatment options-like vision therapy may be right for you.
Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our optometrists provide vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Our doctors will measure how each eye is seeing independently and together.
In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrists perform several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable our doctors to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our optometrists examine the overall health of the eye. The doctors evaluate eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, our doctors review the results and discuss treatments with you.
