Regularly Scheduled Comprehensive Eye Exams
Patients should schedule a comprehensive eye exam every year. Children should also have annual eye exams to ensure proper development of their vision and prevent any interference with academic achievement. Older adults are often at a higher risk for eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts.
Even if your eyes are healthy, a regular eye exam will allow the doctor to view the blood vessels in the back of the eye.
With information obtained during an examination of the eyes, our doctors have been able to detect chronic conditions such as cholesterol, diabetes, and high blood pressure. The early detection of these conditions can lead to early treatment.
