See Your Eye Health Clearly
An eye doctor can often discover eye diseases and vision problems before they threaten your quality of life. Regular eye exams give our optometrists more chances to notice these problems in their early stages and protect your eyesight.
Not all eye diseases begin with obvious symptoms, so an eye exam may be the only way to detect them. i-Care Optometry is ready to help you learn more about the kind of care your eyes need to stay healthy and functional well into the future. We can also help you obtain new glasses or contact lenses if necessary.
Let our skill and experience be your early warning system for eye issues. Book an exam with us today.
Adult Eye Exam Frequency
The American Optometric Association recommends that adults book eye exams:
- Once every year from ages 18 to 64
- Once each year at age 65 and older
Depending on the condition of your eyes, you may need exams more often. For these cases, we provide custom exam schedules for each patient based on the results of their first few visits.
What Happens in an Eye Exam
Your eye exam should take 30 to 60 minutes unless we need to run additional tests, in which case, we can extend your appointment if it works for you or schedule a follow-up.
Each eye exam starts with some questions about your:
- Medical history
- Family medical history
- History of medication
Next, you’ll have a chance to let us know about any eye-related concerns you have. After that, we’ll run some tests, including:
- Visual acuity tests to measure the sharpness of your vision
- Peripheral vision tests to measure your indirect vision
- Pupillary response tests to see how your eyes react to light and other factors
- Eye muscle tests to see how your eyes move
We also take notes about your overall eye health by examining the following parts of the eye:
If this process uncovers any eye diseases or vision problems, we’ll tell you right away and recommend a course of action. Then we’ll update your prescription and help you obtain new eyeglasses or contact lenses if you need them. Before you leave, you can book your next appointment.
