If you wear glasses or contact lenses, it's important to have an eye exam every year, according to the American Optometric Association. If you have any eye disease or if you have health problems that can impact vision, such as diabetes, you may need more frequent eye exams.
Even if you have perfect vision, you still need regular vision screenings at least every two years to look for emerging issues. Dr. Roberts can recommend an eye exam schedule for your particular needs.
During eye exams at EVERY EYE Care, Dr. Roberts reviews your vision history as well as your overall health history. Dr. Roberts examines the inner structures of your eye under high magnification to look for existing or emerging problems.
You'll go through a series of tests to check your eye muscle movement, visual clarity, field of vision, and light refraction. Dr. Roberts may also do other tests, for example, a color vision assessment to check for color blindness, if you need them.
Finally, Dr. Roberts will discuss any necessary vision correction with you and will help you make the right choices for eyeglasses or contact lenses. If you need treatment for any chronic eye condition or disease, Dr. Roberts will explain that at this time, and he may begin your treatment right way if needed.
If you have early signs of an eye problem, for example, macular degeneration, Dr. Roberts will explain the problem and tell you what you can do to delay or possibly avoid the problem.
If you wear contact lenses or eyeglasses, bring them to the appointment. Bring a list of any medications that you're currently taking, including supplements and over-the-counter medicines.
If you've been treated for any eye problems since your last visit to EVERY EYE Care, or if you received any emergency eye care elsewhere, bring any documentation related to your appointment so Dr. Roberts can note this information in your records.
Eye exams at EVERY EYE Care usually take around an hour but plan for a little extra time afterward in case you need to pick out new eyeglass frames and lenses.
