We Focus on Eye Exam Indianapolis

One of the main items we focus on at our practice in the Indianapolis area are comprehensive eye exams. Depending on your age, it is very important to keep current with your Eye Exam Indianapolis. According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), infants should have their first eye exam at 6 months, the next eye exam should occur around the age of 3, and then once the child reaches 6 or first grade they should have another. When your child reaches school full time, it is important to have an exam every 2 years. But if your child is experiencing any vision problems it is important to set an appointment with your local Indianapolis eye doctor.

Symptoms to look for in your child:

  • Tilting their head
  • Sitting close to the television or electronics
  • Placing a book to close to their face
  • Squinting
  • One eye turning in or out
  • Frequency of rubbing their eyes
  • Shorter attention span than normal
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Problems with eye-hand-body coordination
  • Avoiding activities they used to love

Adult Eye Exam Indianapolis

The AOA recommends a comprehensive eye exam every two years for adults ages 18 to 60. If you are 61 or older, you should have an eye exam every year. Some people are at higher risks then others for potential eye diseases. If you are at risk for any eye issues, it is recommended to have an exam more frequently such as once a year or if you are experiencing any symptoms.

Our Indianapolis practice offers comprehensive eye exams using the most state of the art equipment with the latest and advanced technology. A variety of tests will be performed by our eye doctors to check for certain diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, age-related macular degenerate disease, etc.  The clearness of your vision will be tested by a visual acuity test. This is a familiar test that has you read from a chart, 20 feet away from your eyes. Your results are written as a fraction, 20/20 would be one example of this. You will be tested for nearsightedness, farsightedness, or to see if you have an astigmatism. If you are in need of a prescription, this test will help best determine which type of eye glasses or contact lenses you will need. Another test performed is Retinal Photography.

Any other questions, feel free to contact us prior to your appointment at our Indianapolis location.
