What You Can Expect During an Eye Exam

There are certain things you can expect during a comprehensive eye exam.

Vision Testing: Your vision can change slowly over time. These subtle changes may mean you might not even notice that you aren’t actually seeing as clearly as before. Your vision can be evaluated for different conditions. Nearsightedness means that it’s harder to see objects farther away. Farsightedness means you have trouble seeing objects close up. Astigmatism means that there is an irregular shape in your lens or cornea. Strabismus means the eyes aren’t aligning correctly. Your eye doctor can evaluate how clear your vision is, look at your peripheral vision, determine how well the eyes move together, and offer treatment options.

Eye Disease Testing: An eye exam is for more than just vision. Many eye conditions and diseases don’t have any obvious signs so it’s important to have regular exams. A comprehensive exam allows an ophthalmologist or optometrist to monitor changes and catch problems early. Some diseases that are tested for during exams include cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic eye disease. Many conditions can be treated and it’s possible to delay progression so you can preserve your vision.

Other Serious Health Problems: Your eyes can be a window into your overall wellness and health. By looking at the nerves and blood vessels in your eyes, an eye doctor may be able to detect other health problems, such as neurological conditions, high cholesterol, diabetes, and heart disease.
