When Was Your Last Comprehensive Eye Exam?

Focusing on Comprehensive Eye Exams

Getting your eyes tested regularly is one of the best steps you can take to guarantee your eyesight remains healthy. During this session, your eye care professional examines your eyes, looking for common eye diseases and vision issues, some of which lack early warning symptoms.

The session will begin with what's referred to as a visual acuity test, which uses an eye chart to assess how your vision behaves at several different distances. The outside of your eye will also be assessed.

After your tests are completed, your eye care professional may proceed to examine your retina using specialized diagnostic technology. This examination is very important, because it will tell your optometrist crucial information about the health of your eyes, as well as information about your overall health. For instance, it can show signs of diseases such as diabetes and also indicate abnormal blood pressure.

You will also be screened for signs of glaucoma. Your eye care professional will do this by determining your eye pressure, using a rapid puff of air aimed straight onto your eye.

It's time to take the extra measure for your eyesight. Commit to making your eye health a priority, and remember to schedule an eye exam today.
