Comprehensive Eye Exam

We provide comprehensive eye exams for children and adults. We recommend all children have their first eye exam between the ages of 6 months to one year, then again at age 3, then before entering school, and finally every 1 to 2 years throughout childhood and young adulthood. Regular eye exams are important for everybody, regardless of your age or your need for visual correction. During a comprehensive eye exam, we will not only check your need for glasses or contacts, but also evaluate your entire visual system and do a full ocular health examination. There are many underlying visual deficiencies that the patient may be unaware of and can only be detected in a comprehensive eye exam. Also, many ocular and systemic diseases are symptom free and are diagnosed for the first time during an eye exam. We recommend eye exams every 1 to 2 years for all patients up to age 40. After age 40, we recommend annual eye exams.

Vision is a dynamic process that involves the integration of the brain, eyes and body. During the initial evaluation, I will evaluate refractive status (nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism), test distance and near visual acuity and screen for signs of amblyopia or strabismus (crossed or lazy eyes). A complete assessment of the internal and external health of the eyes will take place.
