Why Are Eye Exams Important?

Your eyes can change over time, and the risk of developing several issues can increase throughout your life. Regular eye exams can help detect these changes and give our team an opportunity to address them, sometimes even before symptoms develop.

Every pair of eyes is different. To help preserve your vision, we recommend following the American Optometric Association’s exam schedule:

  • Bi-annual eye exams for adults between 18 and 64
  • Annual eye exams for adults 65+

If you have diabetes or a family history of eye disease, we may recommend more frequent eye exams.

What to Expect from Your Exam

Your experience is our top priority.

From the second you walk into our practice, one of our team members will be right by your side to answer any questions, address concerns, and prepare you for your eye exam.

During your eye exam, your optometrist will confirm your medical history before getting started with your appointment. Your doctor will take a number of tests and measurements to get a clear understanding of your eye health and vision quality.

From the information we gather from your eye exam, we can prescribe glasses, contact lenses, or provide strategies for managing eye diseases and conditions.

Common Age-Related Eye & Vision Problems

A leading risk factor for many eye and vision issues is aging.

However, using technology like ocular coherence tomography and ultra-widefield fundus photography, we can detect these issues and provide strategies to address them. In some cases, you may only need corrective lenses like glasses or contacts, but others may need medications or surgery to help manage.

We develop our strategies according to your needs, and we’ll be happy to adjust our approach as your needs change.

Presbyopia is a common age-related condition that affects a part of your eye known as the crystalline lens.

The crystalline lens changes its shape to bring objects into focus, but it can harden as you age. As a result, you may find it difficult to adjust your focus, and you may need multifocal lenses to help correct your vision.

Cataracts are common eye conditions that affect your crystalline lens, a part of your eye that helps you fine-tune your focusing.

As you age, proteins in the lens can change. Eventually, this process can cause your lens to develop a hazy, milky appearance that could obstruct your vision. Without treatment, the condition could cause blindness.

Glasses and contacts can help correct early cataract-related vision problems, but surgery is the only way to remove a cataract lens.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the most common causes of vision loss in adults over 50.

The disease affects a part of your retina known as the macula. The macula is responsible for providing central vision you use to see fine details, read, and even recognize faces. As the disease progresses, you may develop blurry vision, lose vibrancy in your color vision, or experience visual distortions.
