What to Schedule Eye Exams for the Family
Everyone in a family should have their vision checked regularly. Children should start getting an eye exam from the age of six months, as some disorders such as Amblyopia can be diagnosed and treated early on to prevent further vision loss. Adults should get yearly exams to detect emerging issues with their eyes, especially those who spend long hours in front of a computer, suffer from diabetes, or have been diagnosed with other health conditions.
In addition, you might need an eye exam even if you had perfect vision before. Signs that you should come in for an eye exam include:
- Doubled or blurred vision
- Sensitivity to light
- Trouble seeing at night
- Frequent headaches or eyestrain
Do not wait until your eyesight gets worse. Schedule an appointment right away if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
What to Expect during Your Appointment
During your eye exam, we'll conduct a series of tests to determine the overall health of your eyes and will discuss any corrective options you may need such as glasses or contact lenses. These tests can include:
- Retinal scan: This is an examination of the back of your eye with a specialized camera to check for signs of disease such as glaucoma or macular degeneration.
- Visual acuity: This test measures how clearly you can see at various distances.
- Refraction: This test helps us determine the right eyeglass prescription that will best suit your vision needs.
- Corneal mapping: This is used to check the curvature of your cornea and help determine if you need contact lenses or not.
At Pearland Eye Care, we strive to provide our patients with the best care possible. We understand that your vision is important for your overall health and quality of life. In addition to these tests, our experienced optometrists are here to answer any questions and discuss treatment options with you. Our optometrist might recommend glasses, contact lenses, or other treatments to help improve your vision.
