Eye and Vision Exams

Poor vision can be extremely limiting. At Riviera Opticare in AZ, we offer regular eye and vision exams to help improve your eye health and vision. Visit us today in Mesa or Scottsdale to learn more about how we can help boost your vision.


What You Should Expect In an Eye Exam

When you visit Riviera Opticare in Scottsdale or Mesa for an eye exam, our optometrist will first enquire about your family’s health history. You will then go through a comprehensive examination.

This exam entails various tests and procedures that assess the health of your eyes and vision. The technician will do the diagnostic tests and give the results to the optometrist. The optometrist will review these results and perform a thorough eye examination.

If needed, the optometrist may redo the diagnostic test. Using these records, he/she will make a proper diagnosis and administer effective treatment.

Problems That Optometrists Screen For

1. Glaucoma

Glaucoma is the main cause of vision loss, and so it is vital to detect it early for proper treatment. The optometrist will perform tests like an external exam or use a tonometer. It will help to determine whether you may be suffering from glaucoma.

2. Strabismus

Strabismus is a condition where the eyes are not properly aligned. It causes double or blurry vision. To diagnose strabismus, the optometrist will perform a vision exam (eye movement test).

3. Cataracts, Diabetic Retinopathy, Macular Degeneration, and Corneal ulcer

The optometrist may take you through a slit lamp exam. This exam will help check whether you are suffering from macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and cataracts.

Importance of Getting Regular Eye Exams

Attending regular eye exams has various benefits like:

Early Detection of Eye Problems

Going through the routine eye and vision exam helps the physician to detect eye problems early enough. Hence, you receive immediate treatment.

Prevents Vision Loss

With a timely diagnosis of eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts, your optometrist will help you preserve your vision.

Improved Quality of Life

Regular vision exams can help in the early detection of eye illnesses before they grow into more serious issues. Severe eye problems can significantly affect how you conduct your daily activities and diminish your quality of life. But when these issues are detected early and handled, you can live a happier life.
