Annual Vision Exams
An annual vision exam is an opportunity for our doctor to assess the overall health of your eyes. It’s important that everyone in your family, especially children, to have their regular exams. Since children are still developing, it’s important to identify any problems early on before they interfere with school, sports, or other activities. During the eye exam, our eye doctor will also use a series of standard tests to see how well your eyes are functioning.
Common Eye Tests
There are several optical 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 astigmatic. We also test your depth perception and peripheral vision. As part of your comprehensive optical exam, our optometrist tests your color vision and perception. Your eye focusing ability is also tested. Identifying optical issues early on helps patients to better understand what visual limitations they may have. Understanding your limitations allows you to work around them, instead of letting them hold you back.
If you need lenses to see better but don’t want glasses, then contact lenses may be the right option for you. 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. During your contact lens exam, precise measurements are taken to make sure you leave with the size and strength lens that’s right for you.
