When was the last time you had your eyes checked? If you can’t remember, call your eye doctor today to schedule a comprehensive eye exam. Regular eye exams aren’t only necessary for correcting refractive errors and vision problems; maintaining regular appointments with your ophthalmologist can help detect eye conditions and diseases that may lead to more serious health problems or vision loss.
If it’s been a while since you’ve seen your eye doctor, you may be wondering what to expect. During your comprehensive eye exam with the doctors at Key-Whitman Eye Center, we will evaluate your eyes for glasses, and we will also check your eyes for eye diseases and other eye conditions that could lead to vision loss.
When you schedule your appointment, notify your eye doctor’s office of any vision problems you may be having. Because eye health and overall health are often related, it’s important that you compile a list of any medications you may be taking and be prepared to discuss your own and your family’s health and eye health history.
During your eye exam, you may undergo any combination of the following
common vision tests:
Depending on the results of your exam, your doctor may prescribe prescription eyeglasses. Ask your doctor about alternative vision correction options, such as LASIK laser eye surgery. If your doctor detects any eye conditions or problems with your eye health, you should expect follow up instructions and perhaps treatment.
