Your comprehensive eye exam includes a complete vision test so you can enjoy the clearest eyesight possible. Your Optometrist will examine each eye individually and evaluate how they work together to create an up-to-date prescription that reflects your current vision.
Where needed, we’ll prescribe glasses and/or contact lenses, and help you to find the pair that suits you best.
Your eye exam is about more than just clear vision. Many eye health problems begin with no symptoms at all, but modern technology can identify signs of disease in its beginning stages. Early intervention is key to a healthy outcome. During your exam at Eye Effects, you’ll be tested for cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and other common eye diseases.
You’ll also have the opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns with your doctor. This is an opportune time to discuss any changes in vision you are experiencing, and to talk about your work and lifestyle and how they may impact your vision and eye health.
Tell the Optometrist if you have a family history of eye disease or if you have any risk factors, such as diabetes or high blood pressure.
Because a child’s eyes change so quickly, early intervention is essential but also effective. It is particularly important to address vision problems that can delay cognitive and motor development.
We’ll test your child’s peripheral (side) vision, hand-eye coordination, color vision, far away and close up vision, and ability to focus on and track objects.
If you are not experiencing any new vision problems and there are no signs of disease, you should see your Optometrist every 12-24 months for a check-up. Eye health can change quickly, and many diseases begin silently, so regular exams are essential for preserving this important sense.
In general, the answer to that question is yes. If it has been less than a year since your previous exam, you may continue to use your current prescription. However, eyes change quickly, and if more than a year has passed you will need to schedule a comprehensive eye exam to test for changes in your prescription and eye health.
Our Optometrist’s team will use several important tests in evaluating your vision and eye health. A technician will assess your peripheral vision (side vision), color vision, depth perception, eye coordination, close and far focusing abilities, and binocular vision (how well your eyes work together).
The Optometrist will perform an independent exam and consult the data from all preliminary tests to determine whether your vision has changed since your last appointment.
If so, he or she will complete additional tests to verify your new prescription. The doctor will also recommend a course of action if any health problems are suspected.
Our family friendly clinic is happy to provide eye care for your whole family. We offer eye exams for children, adults and seniors, and are experienced in looking after eye health concerns common to patients of all ages.
At Eye Effects we care about more than just perfect vision. Your complete eye exam includes two important phases. First, an experienced technician will conduct preliminary testing. Then your Optometrist will complete a thorough examination and discuss the results with you.
Please allot 30-60 minutes to complete both the preliminary testing and the comprehensive exam. Once the exam is complete and your prescription has been verified, you may wish to spend additional time finding the right eyeglasses or contact lenses for your needs and preferences. Our staff can assist you in this process.
