The Importance of Routine Eye Exams

At Riviera Opticare, with optometry offices in Mesa and Scottsdale, we understand that natural vision changes occur with age. Making comprehensive eye care and regular eye exams part of your health regimen ensures that subtle shifts do not limit lifestyle enjoyment or pose safety risks. Read on to understand why scheduling consistent appointments with our optometrists in Mesa or Scottsdale maintains your well-being over time.

Keeping Overall Health in Focus

Eyes provide an insightful diagnostic window for identifying and managing systemic health conditions like diabetes before complications escalate. During a series of painless vision tests using advanced optical instruments, your eye doctor can detect ocular changes indicating other emerging health issues. Connecting these dots early on means your care team can proactively treat underlying problems when interventions are often the simplest and most effective.

Tracking the Aging Eye

Gradual age-related focusing issues, clarity reduction, and other vision declines arise slowly over years, making self-monitoring difficult for patients. However, the cumulative effects significantly impact daily living - from driving hazards to increased fall risks. Only your knowledgeable optometrists have the advanced retinal imaging and eye testing technology to spot initial subtle signs of cataracts, macular degeneration, and other aging eye diseases. We can also evaluate whether updated prescription corrective lenses may sharpen failing natural vision for renewed clarity and more confident, safer living.

What Comprehensive Eye Exams Include

Complete eye health evaluations from your Mesa and Scottsdale optometrists incorporate gathering detailed health histories, measuring current optical prescription effectiveness, assessing peripheral vision integrity, gauging risk levels, along with comprehensively testing aspects like:

•             Visual sharpness and clarity

•             Focus flexibility

•             Eye movement coordination

•             Depth and distance perception

•             Retinal layer health

•             Intraocular eye blood pressure

•             Tear duct functionality

•             Pupil reactions
