Eye and Vision Exams at Modern Eyes Optometry
Eye exams play an essential role in diagnosing and treating issues that impact eye health and vision. Most people need an eye exam once per year. Scheduling an eye exam is a great way to keep up with your eye health. Modern Eyes Optometry offers professional eye care for patients in and around the Carlsbad area. Whether you have 20/20 vision or you already wear glasses, annual optometry appointments are vital for maintaining and improving your vision and eye health.
Why Eye Exams Are Important
Eye exams are not only essential for testing your vision but also to detect eye diseases early. Our eye doctor looks for signs of dry eye, glaucoma, and other conditions. Early intervention can preserve your eyesight. Your exam will also help you get treatment for conditions you are unaware of. Many diseases do not have symptoms in their early stages. For example, you could have glaucoma for years before you begin to notice the symptoms. Our doctor can also tell you if you are at higher risk and would benefit from coming in for more frequent appointments.
What to Expect at Your Eye Exam
Eye exams require a brief assessment of your medical history followed by a rundown of your symptoms. This is the time to tell our eye doctor if you have been experiencing blurry vision, dry eyes, or any other concerns. The next portion of your exam is likely to include a look at your vision. Our doctor will use various tests to determine your visual performance and whether you need an updated prescription for glasses or contact lenses. After your vision is assessed, our doctor will take a look at the health and structure of your eyes. This will include a screening for glaucoma and dilation so that the doctor can look at the structures not typically visible.
Glasses and Contact Lenses
Our optometrist will also help you find a pair of glasses or contact lenses that work for you. If your prescription has changed or you are interested in a new pair of lenses, we can go over the various eyewear options we have available at our clinic. If you are interested in contact lenses, we will schedule a contact lens exam during your next appointment.
