The most effective way to protect your eye health is to have regular comprehensive eye exams. By keeping up with routine vision checkups, you will allow your eye doctor to detect changes and underlying abnormalities in your eyes.
During an eye exam, your optometrist may conduct a detailed history review. Be prepared to discuss underlying issues you have been diagnosed within the past and any health conditions that run in your family. Heredity is a major risk factor for certain eye disorders and diseases. You may also be asked about medications you are currently taking and any recent surgeries. This is all necessary information to prepare the right eye tests to assess your individual needs.
Next, a variety of tests are performed to evaluate the various structures of the eye and their proper functions. Typical tests conducted include:
If necessary, more tests will be conducted. Once all are completed, your eye doctor will explain the results of every test with you. For instance, if you are diagnosed with a refractive error, you will be prescribed glasses or contact lenses. Wearing corrective eyewear will help improve your vision close up or help you have a clearer view of distant objects.
