Routine Comprehensive Eye Exam

Discover the Difference: Comprehensive Eye Exams

A routine eye exam for adults is a vital component of overall health maintenance and ensuring long-lasting vision. During the exam, your eye care professional evaluates various aspects of your eye health, including visual acuity, eye muscle function, peripheral vision, and eye pressure. There are over 250 systemic health conditions and the medication to treat those conditions that impact your vision. Additionally, the doctor examines the structures of the eye, such as the retina, optic nerve, and lens, to detect any signs of eye diseases or conditions. As we age, the risk of age-related medical eye conditions, such as glaucoma, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration, increases. Importantly, some of these conditions may not present noticeable symptoms until they have progressed significantly, making early detection through regular eye exams crucial for timely treatment and preservation of vision. Thus, yearly eye exams play a pivotal role in safeguarding eye health and addressing potential issues before they become more challenging to manage.

If cataracts, diabetes, glaucoma, macular degeneration, vitreous degeneration, or any other non-routine condition exists or is found during a routine eye exam, it is no longer routine and is billed to your medical insurance.
