Comprehensive Eye Examination
Regular eye examinations are important in maintaining eye health. During a comprehensive eye examination, eye diseases or other abnormalities that are not yet causing symptoms can be detected. By detecting potential eye diseases early, specific treatments can be done to prevent vision loss and other symptoms. Eye diseases that are frequently detected prior to causing symptoms include glaucoma, macular degeneration, dry eye syndrome, and cataracts.
Comprehensive eye examinations can also help detect systemic problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Many other more serious health conditions also may present with findings on an eye exam. Because of this, a comprehensive eye exam is an essential part of the maintenance of our overall health.
In addition to caring for the medical health of your eyes, we also perform exams for eyeglasses and contact lenses. Refraction testing for eyeglasses and contact lenses is not a covered service under most medical insurance plans. However, many patients enjoy the convenience of not having to visit a separate optometrist for this testing.
