Eye Exams Q&A

What are eye exams?

Eye exams offer you a preventive screening to check on your vision and eye health. In addition, your optometrist consults with you at each visit, allowing you to talk about any concerns and ask questions.

The team at Eyecare Leaders monitors the condition of your eyes at each appointment, comparing your records from one to the other and notes any new changes. Noticing early signs of eye-related health problems can alert the team. They can then recommend treatment to help prevent worsening issues.

If you wear eyeglasses or contacts, your exam can determine if you need a prescription change, as well.

Why are routine eye exams important?

Routine eye exams can protect the health of your eyes and prevent vision loss. Rather than showing declining symptoms quickly, eye conditions typically develop over time. 

Keeping routine checkups can catch serious eye problems. The team at Eyecare Leaders uses advanced technology, such as Cirrus HD-OCT, to determine if you have any retinal changes caused by macular degeneration and nerve damage caused by glaucoma. 

Regular eye exams can also monitor conditions if your child is born with astigmatism.

Your comprehensive eye exams provide a way for your optometrist to detect issues early on, giving you time to start treatment to delay or even prevent vision problems in the future.

What happens at eye exams?

When you come in for your appointment, your provider gathers information to assess the health of your eyes, which may include:

  • Learning about your vision health history
  • Learning about your overall history
  • Finding out if you smoke
  • Asking about your prescriptions if you take any
  • Asking about your family‚Äôs eye-related medical history

The team checks your vision, using state-of-the-art technology to perform a visual acuity test and a refraction test. These tests determine if you can discern details of shapes, have astigmatism, are nearsighted or farsighted, or need your prescription updated.

Your optometrist also puts special drops in your eyes to dilate your pupils and look at the back of your eye.
