How Do I Know When I Need a Comprehensive Eye Exam?

It's May, and that means that it's Healthy Vision Month. When was the last time you had a comprehensive eye exam? Checking your eyes annually is one of the best things you can do to be sure that your vision remains in top form. During the session, your eye care professional examines your eyes, keeping an eye out for common eye diseases and vision issues, some of which have no early warning signs.

The procedure starts with a visual acuity test, which uses an eye chart to determine how well you see at different distances. The outside of your eye also gets tested.

Once these tests are completed, your optometrist may go ahead and examine your retina using specialized diagnostic technology. This examination really matters, as it will provide crucial information about the health of your eyes, as well as information concerning your general health. For instance, it can show warning signs of diseases such as diabetes and also indicate high blood pressure.

Next, you'll be checked for signs of glaucoma. Your eye care professional will do this by measuring the pressure in your eye, using a quick puff of air pointed right onto your eye.

It's time to protect your vision. Commit to making your eye health a foremost concern, and schedule a comprehensive eye exam today.
