Here at Eye Examiners, we truly believe in routine eye examinations.
Routine eye examinations are important for several reasons. First of all, we want to do a thorough examination to ensure your eyes are healthy. We also want to look for any problems to catch them before you even have any symptoms.
Some conditions we often detect are glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. The sooner we discover these problems, the easier treating them will be. Early detection also gives us the best chance of slowing or reversing any symptoms, including vision loss.
During an examination, especially if it is your first visit, we go over your history. We also discuss your daily life and any problems you may be having. It is important to let us know all of the medications you are on before we start the examination.
Then our doctor will perform a thorough examination of your eyes, eyelids, and inner eyes, using magnification and light.
Children usually get their eyes and vision checked during routine visits with their pediatrician. In addition, we recommend to begin a child’s eye exam with an eye doctor between 6 months to one year of age. So schedule your children to have their eyes evaluated at our clinic during these critical ages and thereafter based on our doctor’s recommendation. Of course, schedule sooner if you notice an eye problem or anything that concerns you. As adults, we have to make time and remember to get our eyes checked regularly. It is really important to schedule routine examinations if you have a family history of eye problems or have higher risk factors such as diabetes, high blood pressure, certain work conditions or medications.
We recommend checking your eyes every year. If you have any eye or vision issues, you should be seen immediately or more frequently, base on the urgency of your eye issue and/or the recommendation of the doctor.
