Your Vision is Important to Us
Eye diseases are common and can go unnoticed for a long time — some have no symptoms at first. A comprehensive eye exam by an optometrist is necessary to find eye diseases in the early stages when treatment to prevent vision loss is most effective. Photographs are taken so your eye doctor can see inside your eyes and check for signs of health problems.
During the exam, visual acuity, depth perception, eye alignment, and eye movement are tested. Your eye doctor may even spot other conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes, sometimes before your primary care doctor does. Even if you are experiencing no visual problems, we recommend that you have yearly eye exams!
