Who Needs a Comprehensive Eye Exam?
Everyone needs an eye exam every so often. How often you need an eye exam depends on your age and the condition of your eyes.
School-age children: Your child should see the eye doctor at least once before entering school. After your child’s first eye exam, many kids see the doctor every year or every other year, according to the recommendations of their eye doctor.
Adults: Adults need periodic visits with the eye doctor. How often depends on their risk factors for eye diseases, whether they wear glasses and other factors. Ask your eye doctor when you should come back for your next comprehensive eye exam.
Adults over age 60: Starting at age 60, the risk to adults for developing eye conditions can increase. Your eye doctor may recommend coming in for comprehensive eye exams on a more frequent basis beyond this age.
What to Expect During a Comprehensive Eye Exam
During your comprehensive eye exam, your eye doctor will evaluate a variety of factors including:
Your eye doctor in Indian Trail NC will ask you about eye or vision problems that you’ve experienced in the past. Your eye doctor will also ask you about medical conditions you have and medications that you take that could put you at risk.
Your eye doctor will measure how clearly you’re seeing out of each eye. If you need corrective lenses and do not currently have them, or if you need stronger prescription lenses than the ones you currently have, your eye doctor will write a new prescription for your corrective lenses.
Tests Eye Health
Your eye doctor will test your eye health including your depth perception, eye muscle movements, peripheral vision, color vision and how your pupils react to light. Your eye doctor will measure the shape of your eye, test for refraction and will also measure the pressure inside the eye.
