Comprehensive Eye Exams Q & A

Why should I schedule an eye exam?

Even if you don’t wear corrective lenses or have a chronic eye condition, you should schedule an eye exam at least once every two years.

These appointments are essential preventive steps in maintaining good eye health. Many eye diseases don’t cause symptoms in their early stages, but standard screening tests can detect those diseases.

Plus, you may have changes in your vision that developed so gradually that you didn’t notice them.

If you wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, schedule your eye exam once a year to update your prescription. If you’re over 60, you should have your eyes examined once a year because you’re at greater risk of developing glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and other diseases and conditions that can affect your vision.

What happens during a comprehensive eye exam?

A comprehensive eye exam begins with a conversation about your general vision, any eye-related symptoms you’re experiencing, and your overall health. Dr. Zair-Yalda then evaluates your vision and eye health with a series of tests.

Standard tests include:

  • Visual acuity
  • Cover tests (how your eyes work independently and together)
  • Eye movement
  • Color blindness
  • Depth perception
  • Slit-lamp exam
  • Glaucoma tests
  • Retina scans
  • Visual field tests

If you need corrective lenses, you’ll also undergo a retinoscopy and a refraction test.

At Professional Contact Lens and Optical Clinic, you benefit from some of the latest technology available to evaluate your eyesight and eye health.  Dr. Yaldo offers these innovative tools to get accurate information about your eyes quickly and efficiently so that you receive the best personalized treatments and services.

Why are eye exams important?

You want the best possible eyesight to do your best at work and school. You need your eyes for the most basic functions, including driving and reading.

Routine eye exams ensure that you continue to see clearly and that your eyes are healthy.

When eyesight or eye health complications are detected early, you have a better chance of avoiding vision loss and other issues. Regular eye exams also catch vision changes that can cause headaches or dry eyes due to strain.
