When Did You Last Have a Comprehensive Eye Exam?

May is healthy vision month. When was your last comprehensive eye exam? Getting your eyes tested periodically is one of the best steps you can take to make sure your eyesight remains strong and healthy. During the procedure, your eye care professional examines your eyes, looking for commonly occurring eye diseases and vision issues, some of which lack early warning symptoms.

The session starts with a visual acuity test, using an eye chart to measure how well you see at various distances. The exterior of your eye will also be assessed.

After these tests are completed, your optometrist may proceed to examine your retina using specialized diagnostic technology. This is extremely important, as it will provide vital information about the health of your eyes, as well as information about your general health. For instance, it can show signs of diseases such as diabetes and also indicate high blood pressure.

Finally, you will be checked for signs of glaucoma. This is done by measuring the pressure in your eye, with a small puff of air aimed onto the eye.

Anytime is the right time to care for your eyesight. Make your eye health come first, and call to schedule an eye exam today.
