During a comprehensive eye exam, our Optometrists do much more than just determine your prescription for eyeglasses. We will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health. That’s why annual routine eye exams are important, even if you don’t feel your eyeglass prescription has changed or feel you have any eye problems. Routine eye exams can also detect certain disease like diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, and many more.
Fundus Photography and Retinal Screening: during your comprehensive exam we offer images of the internal structures of the eye such as the retina, optic nerve, retinal blood vessels, and macula. This only takes a few minutes and it is completely painless. This screening is an important part of your exam that can help detect eye diseases and abnormalities early on. By using comparisons at future examinations, the photographs and scans are a very useful reference to monitor changes in eye health.
This is a comprehensive eye exam that determines the parameters and curvature measurements of your eyes, the fit of the contact lenses, and the health of your cornea. It’s a more complicated exam and may often require at least one follow-up visit. Our contact lens exam fee includes all necessary follow-up visits AND the glasses prescription.
The most frequently asked question by contact lens wearers is: "Why does my contact lens prescription expire sooner than my glasses prescription?"
By law, contact lens prescriptions are valid for a minimum of one year, or the minimum required by state law, whichever is greater. Even if you buy your replacement contacts from another source, you still need to visit your eye doctor for regular eye exams and contact lens fittings.
'"Just because your eyes feel good and your contact lenses seem to be working well does not mean your eye health is O.K.," says Charles Slonim, MD, an ophthalmologist.
