Eye exams are very important not only to determine the status of sight and to maximize vision function and comfort, but also, to ensure and maintain optimum eye health. For adults we recommend an annual eye health and vision examination. They typically take 30 minutes and are crucial to protecting and preserving your precious vision for a lifetime.
While some eye diseases let you know something is wrong, with symptoms such as red eyes, light sensitivity, observations of floaters or flashing lights, other possibly serious problems have no warning signs. For example, much like high blood pressure, most forms of glaucoma and early-stage macular degeneration produce no symptoms whatsoever until some vision has been permanently lost.
Today’s sophisticated medical equipment, in the hands of our doctors, can detect the earliest signs of a problem. A complete eye exam involves a series of tests designed to evaluate your vision and check for eye diseases.
