Below is everything you need to know about your vision exam and why you need to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.


What is a Vision Exam?

Like a physical at your doctor’s office, a vision exam is an important part of taking care of your overall health. During a vision exam, your optometrist will carefully examine your eyes and check for any potential issues with your sight. Your optometrist may also test for color blindness or other visual defects that could impact your daily life.

What Types of Tests are Included in a Vision Exam?

A comprehensive vision exam typically includes tests to measure your visual acuity, depth perception, color perception, and peripheral vision. Your optometrist may also use specialized equipment to check the inner workings of your eyes and look for signs of eye diseases such as glaucoma or cataracts. Additionally, your optometrist may perform a dilated retinal exam, which involves using special drops to widen your pupils to examine the back of the eye more closely.

Why is it Important to Have Regular Eye Exams?

Regular vision exams are essential for identifying any potential eye issues that could lead to vision problems in the future. During your appointment, your optometrist can diagnose and treat any conditions that could be causing vision problems, such as astigmatism or nearsightedness. Furthermore, regular eye exams are important for catching early signs of various eye diseases like glaucoma or cataracts before they become more serious health concerns.

When Should I See an Optometrist?

It's recommended that healthy adults should see an optometrist at least once every two years. However, if you already have a health condition that affects your eyes or vision, such as astigmatism or nearsightedness, then it's recommended to have more frequent visits to make sure your condition isn't getting worse over time. Additionally, if you are experiencing any vision problems or changes, it's best to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
