Is it Time for Your Annual Comprehensive Eye Exam?

May is healthy vision month. When was the last time you had a comprehensive eye exam? Getting your eyes tested annually is one of the most effective steps you can take to guarantee your eyes remain healthy. During your procedure, your optometrist thoroughly examines your eyes, making sure you're clear of common eye diseases and vision issues, many of which do not have early modes of detection.

The procedure will start with what's referred to as a visual acuity test, which uses an eye chart to determine how your vision behaves at several different distances. The outside of your eye will also be assessed.

Once your tests are completed, your optometrist may examine your retina using specialized diagnostic technology. This part of the exam is very important, because it will tell your optometrist crucial information about the state of your eye health, as well as information about your overall health. For instance, it can show signs of diseases such as diabetes and also indicate unhealthy blood pressure.

Next, you'll be screened for signs of glaucoma. Your optometrist will do this by checking the pressure in your eye, with a rapid puff of air aimed onto your eye.

It's time to take the extra measure for your eyes. Make your eye health a foremost concern, and schedule a comprehensive eye exam today.
