An annual eye examination with an optometric physician is recommended for every person after age 40, and even more frequently if you have been diagnosed with an eye disease. If you already wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, have not had an eye exam in the past year, or are experiencing any vision issues, you should have a complete eye examination to determine the status of your vision. Following your comprehensive exam, our physicians take the time to discuss any issues or concerns you may have about your test results, or questions you may have about available procedures.
Our eye exams are anything but routine – we pride ourselves on the thoroughness of our assessments. Your complete eye exam will include:
- A refraction, which checks for the need for glasses or contacts
- A dilated examination of the back of the eye, which confirms retinal health
- A detailed cataract evaluation
Our physicians will also perform an intraocular pressure measurement, which determines whether you are at risk for developing glaucoma, among other conditions including cataracts, macular degeneration, or dry eye. Eye exams also include a check for other, non eye diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, tumors, cancer, autoimmune disorders, and thyroid disorders
We use the most advanced equipment and computerized testing devices, combined with the skill of our experienced physicians. Should there be need for further diagnostics or treatment, we offer comprehensive care right in our facility.
Additionally, if you require glasses or contact lenses, your optometric physician and our experienced and highly trained optical team will guide you through the available lenses to find what will best fit your lifestyle needs. Center For Sight offers a variety of frames, including many designer name brands, customized lenses and a variety of contact lenses, including disposable and specialty lenses.
What to Expect at your Exam
Please bring any current glasses or contact lenses and a list of medications you may be taking. When you are greeted at our front desk, you will be asked for your insurance card as well as other related information. After your examination, you may experience some blurriness of your vision and light sensitivity due to the dilating drops. This may be reduced by wearing sunglasses; if you do not have your own, we will gladly supply you with a pair.
