Riviera Opticare Offers Eye Exams with our Scottsdale and Riviera Optometrist
In an ideal world, people would never have any changes in their vision or be at any risk for eye diseases and disorders. But the eyes are delicate organs, and you need to stay on top of any changes that might be occurring in them at all times. Fortunately, you can achieve this goal easily thanks to the comprehensive eye exams we offer here at Riviera Opticare. Our Scottsdale and Mesa clinics can make sure your whole family benefits from skilled preventative eye care.
Why That Eye Exam in Mesa or Scottsdale Is So Important
If you have a tendency to put off that next recommended eye exam in Mesa or Scottsdale -- don't! Those "routine" eye exams are more important than you might realize. Your vision may have declined so subtly or gradually that you never even noticed the decline in your eyesight. You could even be suffering from a serious eye disease. Glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other disorders can cause irreversible damage even before you see any symptoms of vision loss. The time to find and treat these conditions is before they can hurt your quality of life. That's why regularly-scheduled comprehensive eye exams are the smartest step you can take to keep your eyes in optimal working order.
Comprehensive Testing and Evaluation Techniques at Our Optometry Clinic
Any of the optometrists at our two offices can provide patients of all age with the right tests and evaluations for their stage of life and current vision challenges. Babies and small children should receive three major exams by the time they're ready to enter school. Older kids and adults should receive an eye exam at least every other year, or every year if we're treating a specific issue. Seniors invariably need annual eye exams to help us detect eye diseases that tend to become a problem with age (such as macular degeneration and cataracts). A typical comprehensive eye exam at our clinic includes:
- Close examination of the front of the eye using an instrument called a slit lamp
- Retinal exams that allow us to see all the way to the back of the eye
- Tonometry, a technique for measuring eye pressure and detecting potential glaucoma
- Eye function tests that check your eyes' ability to work individually, together, and in coordination with the brain
- Vision tests that check your ability to read an eye chart and determine any corrective prescription you might require
