When you are having some difficulties with your vision, you need to have your eyes checked. While some clinics may conduct some basic tests, if you want more details about what is happening to your vision or eyes, you need to go to a comprehensive eye exam clinic.
The Basic Exam
A few simple tests will make up the basic eye exam. It will usually start with reading an eye chart on the wall to test your vision at different distances. It will enable the doctor to know whether your vision is 20/20 or less.
You will also look through a device with different lenses in it to determine the exact prescription lens you need. Light may also be flashed into your eyes to determine how well they respond to it. Other basic tests may also be conducted to check more functional aspects of your eyes including movement, eye pressure, and cataracts. Your eyes may also be dilated to be able to look at your retina and optic nerve for possible damage.
A Comprehensive Eye Exam
This exam, which will include the above tests, adds a few more. When a specific problem is suspect, tests will be given to determine the problem.
At Optical Warehouse Outlet NY, where there is a unique combination of an ophthalmologist, optometrist, and an optician in the same office, we can provide you with all the eye testing you might need.
Get Tested for Eye Diseases
Our comprehensive eye exam clinic has all the latest high-tech equipment enabling us to provide the best tests available for various eye diseases. These advanced eye tests enable you to be tested for:
- Diabetic Retinopathy – this problem occurs in people who have diabetes I or II. It develops slowly and may not be noticeable at first, but it is the leading cause of blindness in the United States. It occurs because of blood vessels becoming blocked.
- Glaucoma – This disease is common among people who are 60 or older. It is caused by a fluid buildup in the eye that damages the optic nerve. It often leads to blindness. Early detection can prevent blindness.
- Dry Eye – Having dry eyes can lead to vision problems. Proper treatment is important.
- Macular Degeneration – This problem affects more Americans than any other eye problem. It leads to distorted and blurry vision and other eye problems. People who have hypertension and high cholesterol levels are most susceptible.
