Eye Exam Q&A
What are eye examinations?
An eye examination is a comprehensive physical exam that covers your eye and vision care. When you go to an ophthalmologist for a complete eye exam, you will receive thorough care and treatment options. The first part of your eye exam will cover your medical history to determine if you have underlying health conditions that could affect your eyes, such as diabetes or high blood pressure.
The eye exam varies but typically includes measuring your vision acuity with a letter chart test. Your eyes will also be dilated to asses the inside of the eye for glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and various eye conditions. Additional tests will be performed as needed.
How can I prepare for an eye exam at Omni Eye Care?
We will perform a comprehensive screening of your health history, vision history, and current eye condition. We may dilate your eyes if you are getting a complete eye exam. We recommend you bring a driver to assist you in driving home especially if your eyes are dilated.
For the eye exam, you will need to bring any glasses or contacts you currently wear, as well as your previous vision exam test results. If you are currently taking any medication, bring a list of these as well. Dr. Lapsi provides eye exams for patients of all ages, but if you are under 18 you will need to be accompanied by your parent or guardian.
Why should I get an eye exam on a routine basis?
A routine eye exam provides more than just an updated look into your current vision condition. Certain eye conditions are asymptomatic and we recommend regular screening for glaucoma and diabetes. With annual office visits, Dr. Lapsi can provide treatment for eye issues before the conditions advance to maintain optimal eye health and avoid permanent vision loss.
