Eye exams are vital for your vision and are often used to protect your vision from disease. We at Coal Creek Family Vision are here for all your vision needs. Our treatments are tailored to your needs, and our comprehensive eye exams can help give you a complete view of your eye health and help maintain your eyes for life.
Eye exams help not only address any eye conditions you may have but also help you maintain good eye health. Routine eye exams are the best methods many ophthalmologists have for the early detection of eye diseases and vision loss, especially for adults and seniors. Adults under 40 require an eye exam every two years, while those over 40 need a yearly eye exam as the risk of diseases and vision loss increases with age.
Your eye exam at Coal Creek Family Vision will include several tests for assessing your eye health and vision. These tests allow us to see how well our eyes work and notice early warning signs for disease. Often, many eye diseases can start symptom-free and go undetected until areas of your vision are affected. But through vision tests, our team can identify diseases at their earliest stages and help prevent further damage.
What To Expect From Your Eye Exam?
During your eye exam with our doctors, we will inquire with you about your eye health and your medical history to help us learn about your lifestyle, previous eye problems, family history, and any medical conditions affecting your life. Once discussed, we can perform a series of tests during your eye exam, including:
- Preliminary Tests: Our preliminary tests work to assess different aspects of your eye health & vision, including your pupil size, depth perception, color vision, and more.
- Eye Health Evaluation: Through an eye health evaluation, we will view the eye’s internal structures, such as the optic nerve and retina, to look for early warning signs of disease.
- Eye Movement & Teaming: These tests work to assess how well your eyes move and work together and include tests for the eye muscles, binocular vision, and accommodation.
- Refraction: Refraction tests work to determine if you require prescription lenses and what lens reading you need to see properly.
- Visual Acuity: Visual acuity refers to the clearness and clarity of your vision. Eye charts, in these cases, are used to determine how well your visual acuity works and helps in lens prescriptions.
These procedures are used to make certain that your eyes are healthy and your vision is clear, and if we detect any warning signs of disease, we can offer comprehensive treatments that can help manage your symptoms and protect your eye health.
