What to expect At Your Eye Exam From Your Optometrist
Our comprehensive eye exams include standard refraction and a thorough health check of the eyes using the most advanced technology and equipment. Our optometrist will perform a variety of tests, depending on the health of your eye and what symptoms you may be experiencing. Most people believe, I see just fine, why would I need to have an eye exam? Having a comprehensive eye exam is equally as important as having a regular physical by your primary care doctor. Many eye conditions do not show any sign of pain, but when your optometrist performs thorough tests on your eyes, these tests may show signs of damage or the start of an eye disease that possibly could have gone undetected without an exam. If you have eye glasses or contacts, an up to date prescription will be determined as well when seeing one of our Optometrists at our Broad Ripple location.
How long will the eye exam take?
Our optometrist usually will ask that you allow about an hour and a half for your eye appointment. This will give us ample time to perform all necessary tests if needed.
At what age should I start having a yearly eye exam?
At our Broad Ripple location, we recommend having an eye exam once a year once you reach school age. It is important to schedule eye exams with an optometrist for your child once a year. The easiest way to remember to do so is to schedule it at the beginning of each school year. A lot of changes can occur in a year, therefore its best to have your eyes looked at yearly.
What tests or procedures should I expect?
Our optometrist will perform a variety of tests at your exam. These include:
- Reading off a Stellen Chart
- Retinal Screening
- Slit-Lamp Exam
- Pupil Dilation
All of these tests performed will detect any eye diseases or problems in your vision that you may be experiencing. Such eye problems that could be occurring are glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts. Therefore, it is very important to have your eyes checked by a Broad Ripple optometrist today. According to the National Eye Institute, more than 11 million Americans have an uncorrected visual impairment that could impair their vision in one way or another. Don’t be one of the statistics, schedule an appointment with your optometrist at our Broad Ripple location today.
Children Eye Exams at our Broad Ripple Optometrist Facility
We offer children’s eye exams at our Broad Ripple facility. Newborns are checked by a pediatrician or family physician in the hospital nursery, after they leave the hospital, it is up to the parents to continue having their eyes examined at different times in the first few years of their life. During year one, your child will be checked by their pediatrician, but if any problems occur, do not hesitate to contact an optometrist. At age 3 or 3.5, you should have their eyes examined, then again at age 5 -6. If your child needs glasses, they will need to be checked regularly every year from here on out. The easiest way to keep this in their schedule is to have an eye exam at the beginning of each year. Keeping your child’s eyes healthy is imperative to learning, playing sports, and preventing further damage as they get older.
