The Importance of a Comprehensive Eye Exam

It's May, and that means that it's Healthy Vision Month. When was your last comprehensive eye exam? Having your eyes examined periodically is one of the most effective steps you can take to ensure your eyesight remains strong and healthy. During your procedure, your eye care professional checks your eyes, keeping an eye out for common vision problems and eye diseases, some of which do not have early warning symptoms.

Your examination will start with a visual acuity test through the use of an eye chart to measure how your vision behaves at various distances. The exterior of your eye also gets tested.

When your tests are finished, your eye care professional may examine your retina using specialized diagnostic technology. This examination matters greatly, because it will tell your optometrist crucial information about the health of your eyes, as well as information regarding your overall health. To give an example, it can show signs of diseases such as diabetes and also point to unhealthy blood pressure.

You will also be screened for signs of glaucoma. Your eye care professional will do this by measuring the pressure in your eye, using a quick puff of air aimed right onto the eye.

Anytime is the right time to protect your eyesight. Commit to making your eye health come first, and book an examination today.
